  Helping Families to Make Informed Health Care Decisions


Health Education, Advocacy, & Literacy (H.E.A.L.) is a professional consulting organization that helps individuals and families make health choices that work for them. H.E.A.L.'s mission is twofold: to support, inform and empower people caring for children, and to reform the role of health care in the lives of individuals and in our society at large.

Our focus is on issues considered controversial or hard to address in the standard medical community. These include home birth, long term breastfeeding, decisions related to immunization and circumcision, emotional/behavioral issues and school problems, and antibiotic abuse. We applaud the declining incidence of newborn circumcision and want to ensure that parents have clear information about circumcision. We are strongly opposed to the use of psychotropic medications (antidepressants, stimulants like Ritalin, etc.) in children, and we want to support families that decide not to medicate and are facing pressure to do so.

We provide individual consult services to families wishing to discuss anything concerning the health of infants, children and adolescents. This includes telephone consults addressing both well child and acute care (sick child) concerns, as well as home visits if geographically feasible. We also provide counseling and psychotherapy services to families and people of all ages,  educational workshops to parents, caregivers and groups, and we are available for public speaking engagements. Take a look at what we have to offer and see how you can benefit by unplugging from the profit-driven medical industrial complex.

For those of you wihtin the Houston area, take a look at our learning community for unschoolers, self-directed youth and anyone who wants to support their child's inherent desire and ability to learn free of coercion and control. It is called The Real School a.k.a. Dragon Valley. There are ongoing dialogs throughout the year to discuss radically different educational models.
