The Bravewell Collaborative

The Bravewell Collaborative is a community of leading philanthropists who work together to transform our health care system and improve the health of the American public through the advancement of integrative medicine. Bravewell Patient’s Bill of Rights describes our rights as patients to be “whole” and calls for “a truly integrative medicine that is supported by rigorous scientific research, maintains the highest standards of excellence, and offers a full and complete array of care modalities.”

Sponsored by The Bravewell Collaborative, Integrative Medicine in America: How Integrative Medicine Is Being Practiced in Clinical Centers Across the United States provides current data on the patient populations and health conditions most commonly treated with integrative strategies.

In a survey of 29 U.S. integrative medicine centers, 75 percent reported success using integrative practices to treat chronic pain and more than half reported positive results for gastrointestinal conditions, depression and anxiety, cancer and chronic stress.

Safe2Heal: in 8 Seconds

If you do these 10 things every day over and over again – you will feel better!! (It’s hard but we’re here to help)

Safe2Heal EveryDay

Healing experiences wholeness. At Safe2Heal we practice every day together online.  We sit quietly meditating and then share mindfully about it. Learning happy – together!

Meditating activates the part of our nervous system that rests and digests.  Like the sky watching clouds pass along – we experience ourselves as the space between thoughts and strong emotions. We learn to respond more to what happens – instead of reacting automatically. More resilient.

But you need to make a commitment to practice and find the discipline to practice everyday.  That’s why we do it together.  In a safe place listening deeply and being heard.

Safe2Heal EveryDay offers guided interactive online sessions every day.  In addition to meditation and mindful sharing sessions there are simple recommended practices proven to increase your well-being.
