Our mission is to provide true informed consent around medication-based treatment, and empower individuals with tools for radical self-healing.

What We Believe


The good news is that you’re in control.

The truth is that only you can get you well. We all need time to validate our suffering, but then we need to step into a place of self-empowerment.


When you know better,
you do better.

This is a journey of awakening. That means no more blaming ourselves for the past, and instead, looking for ways to grow and improve every day.


Suffering ends where meaning begins.

We are here for a very meaningful experience. By turning towards our symptoms, we can glean powerful insights that lead to deeper healing.

Can Vaccines Alter a Child’s Health Trajectory?

By Rob Abbott, MD

The question embodied in the title of this article is one that has never fully escaped the weaves of my inquisitive mind. In medical training we are taught that vaccines prevent acute illness, thwarting sometimes life threatening infections by various microorganisms. Certainly, the prevention of a life-threatening infection is an alteration of a child's health trajectory, but in what direction and to what end? Surely it would seem that the only possible health trajectory from the avoidance of an acute infection would be improved health, vitality and lessened suffering, but is this picture the actual reality that we face?

Do we actually possess immunotherapies such as vaccines that carry no risk and only propel children towards improved well-being, less medical intervention and less suffering?

The dominant medical narrative at this point in time shares that vaccines, as currently administered to youth, carry minimal risks and that they prevent “avoidable” deaths from infectious disease without a reciprocal increase in total suffering over the life of the child. Sadly, we do not yet have the data to fully support or refute this dominant medical narrative as there have been essentially no clinical studies completed to date that have rigorously compared the dynamic health trajectory of children following the most recent recommended vaccine schedule to those forgoing some or all vaccines altogether. We simply do not know.

As a clinician bearing witness to the greatest rise of chronic diseases in our youth that humanity has ever seen, how can you not become curious as to why?

The issue is complex and massively nuanced. Our environments are as toxic as ever and the average child’s diet is a nutrient deficient, pro-inflammatory dumpster fire. Social and family bonds seemingly carry more tension and trauma than love and the concept of outdoor play is being eroded from the fabric of our youth. The truth is that the rise of chronic diseases in youth is related to all of these factors and still more that we have yet not named, but not having all the answers can’t stop us from being curious, from looking for clues unearthed through courageous, scientific inquiry.
