The Integrative Health Project has always been driven by community need. From the start our goal was to train local providers who could deliver treatment to community members apart from the visiting medical teams in the twice yearly jornadas.
Community providers start by learning the NADA protocol, which is used to manage stress and substance abuse. As an overall regulating protocol, NADA is a good general use treatment. After NADA, providers learn other protocols and how to customize treatment. The also learn other modalities, like moxa, cupping, gua sha and massage. Clinics provide much needed basic health screenings for diabetes and hypertension and often catch problems requiring immediate referral.
The free clinics that these practitioners provide have become extremely popular with well over 700 treatments provided each month. Additional training is planned for two other groups in January.
in addition to training, IHP provides funding for rent, supplies, telephone and transportation.
Be assured that you donation goes directly to patient care.
