He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.” Mark 5:34

In 2021 my mother suffered three devastating strokes. She was under extreme financial stress for a long duration, and I knew it was a factor in her stroke. I had studied stress for years, so I was determined to address the connection of neurological diseases and life stressors to health.

It all begins with an idea. Stress Vitals Institute aims to demonstrate how stress is a critical element in everyone’s life. If addressed, a patient could make significant progress in prevention, treatment, and outcomes. For this reason, we partner with physicians in various medical areas and work with them to use our method for positive outcomes for their patients. Our focus is research; research is at the center of our work. We are adamant that her stress management institute adheres to the highest standards of evidence-based research.

To heal, we believe, requires faith. For this reason, we put our clients in touch with their faith leader to guide them towards wholeness! In this way, the physician attends to the body, and the faith leaders the soul.
