Inspirational stories - see your donation making a Difference!
Free Range Health was founded to help patients like Fred Joiner. At 64, he was morbidly obese and had an ominous list of health problems including hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, high LDL cholesterol, kidney issues, impotence, and depression.
Fear of deteriorating health was exceeded only by the thought of losing his wife who was no longer willing to tolerate their poor quality of life.
After about a year of being on the Free Range Health program, Fred is no longer diabetic and has lost over 80 pounds. His doctors have taken him off all heart medications. With the help of Chinese herbs, he can now urinate “like a 21 year old.”
High quality metrics are an important piece of the Free Range Health approach to community-supported wellness. In order to help you understand who is being helped by your support, we track a wide range of demographic and health information such as age, gender, relationship status, employment status, and veteran status to name just a few. To help you understand the impact of your support with actual patients, we generate reports on the conditions being treated, the number and types of treatments being provided, and changes in quality of life scores. We are coming up with new ways to present our data all the time.
You can share your time instead of your money by volunteering. Help us build community-supported wellness when you fundraise to support a host site clinic, sign up for a clinic greeter shift, or help pack our Wellness Blend Tea bags. If you have special talents you would like to share, reach out to tell us how you’d like to help. We’re always interested in talking to you!
The AEMP profession benefits when more people are introduced to our special medicine. Your donation opens the door to AEMP for underserved communities and individuals, and it helps to support PSLF-eligible living wage jobs for acupuncturists. Your donation is a signal that you spend your professional charity dollars on an AEMP-related nonprofit. When there is a Free Range Health clinic in your local community, you don’t need to worry about lowering your rates. Now you can refer people struggling to afford your services to a local resource.
Free Range Health is a lean operation with very low overhead costs. Our focus is on expanding our programs to more people rather than classifying expenses.
