If you’re like most people, you learned the same things I did growing up, and were told its normal to have those problems as you get older – bad back, potbelly, bad knees, bad ankles, stiff neck, forward head, loss of mobility…..sound familiar?
or if you are a woman having children, maybe no one prepared you for postpartum depression, or bladder leakage and they told you that you would just need to deal with it.
or maybe you heard you would go through a midlife crisis and that 1 in 3 of your marriages would end in divorce, 1 out 5 people will experience clinical anxiety and depression, or that your child has a 1 in 68 chance of having autism, or a 35% chance of being obese.
or maybe you are fighting a disease and the only suggestion you get from your doctor is to keep trying different antibiotics that are tearing apart your gut.
Oh, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
We can tell you that this is simply not true, and many of your clinicians and doctors know it. The problem is that their medical practices are often not set up to help someone like you who is willing to pursue health. They are set up to give their patients an easy way out of their health issues using pills and quick fixes that mask symptoms, but often do not address the root of the problems.
We built Welligion on the best mind and body preventative and restorative techniques to survive and thrive in the 21st century, going well beyond pills and quick fixes.
Wellness(n) the state of being in good health.
Religion(n) a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.
Welligion (n) The practice of ascribing supreme importance to the state of being in good health.

How Welligion Started
Welligion is our collection of experiences and the best treatment techniques we know from many professional physical and mental health clinical practices. It is also a collection of anecdotes from the brave patients, parents, and caregivers who tackle illness every day and their best ideas on wellness and caring for their loved ones. #abraveparent
As professionals on the front lines of Physical Therapy and Psychology, who spend more time than any other medical profession with their patients, we have seen many examples of solutions that exist for people who are willing to change, and we want to share these techniques with you.
The status quo in “health and wellness” would have you accept illness, physical and cognitive decline, and pharmaceutical drugs or surgery as your only hope. To this we say "No Thank You" and are excited to share many of the alternative healthy practices, tools and techniques we see working for people every day, that have helped thousands of people just like you.
We work on the leading edge of research and theory that is informed by the anecdotal information we get from our patients and caregivers, and When it Works,
We Share it on Welligion.
Lastly our Welligion is not some super-framework for ultimate health, because no one has all the best answers, but it is a collection of individual experiences, many tools and techniques that we know can work NOW for the motivated and Welligious among you who "ascribe supreme importance to the state of being in good health."
