Case Studies will promote Clinical Trials I designed to compare acupuncture against ARC using the same protocol and multiple controls .
Participants in Phase 1 will have a Caregiver (friend, family, or professional) apply the protocol daily or every other day for an initial 4-week trial during which they will receive weekly support as their progress is recorded.
Participants submit a Holistic Evaluation to provide potentially relevant data to compare outcomes of other Participants with similar conditions to assess various factors that may influence patient progress and inform experimental designs by myself and other researchers to eliminate confounding factors. The Holistic Evaluation effectively implies what Participants (and their Caregiver) need to do for optimal recovery and health that they're not doing, and what they're doing that impedes homeostasis, recovery, and optimal health. However, it does not provide the critical resources and insights I can provide them from 27+ years professional practice as an Integrative Health Specialist. The trial gives Participants the opportunity to experience the therapeutic effects of my protocol and decide if they want to keep working with us or use the training and resources they received to continue their journey as they choose. Exiting Participants have the option to purchase a Personalized Integrative Health Plan (PIHP) based on their Holistic Evaluation and information gathered during their trial -a comprehensive structured plan with resources to guide their recovery- and weekly Coaching sessions for support until they reach their goals.
