The Documenting Hope Project is a children’s health and wellness research program created by Epidemic Answers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in collaboration with a coalition of physicians, parents, scientists, research and health organizations and experts in a cross-section of specialties ranging from bioinformatics to traditional healing.
We have come together to re-think the way we approach children’s health and wellness in the developed world. Our coalition believes that serious chronic illnesses and developmental challenges can be overcome by optimizing the good influences on our bodies and reducing the harmful ones. If true, we have the opportunity to profoundly impact the future of our children and life on this planet. This theory must be rigorously tested and documented.
Our research is inspired by the many success stories of children getting significantly better or even fully recovering from their chronic health and developmental conditions. We have observed this phenomenon in communities across the country and across many different kinds of conditions including autism, ADHD, autoimmune diseases, mood disorders, life-threatening food allergies and more. We do not use the word “cure” because this word depicts human health as binary and static (you are either “sick” or “cured”), whereas our team believes that human health is dynamic continuum and is exquisitely responsive to even the most subtle of changes in the environment and one’s surroundings.
