About Us

     Our focus is all about educating the patient on the various treatment options that utilize alternative medicine. Our Certifying Physician can give recommendations for care, comfort, and support,  tailored to a patient's specific needs regarding multiple chronic conditions and diseases. .

     Our Patient Care Liaisons provide additional education and resources on the available products at local dispensaries to ensure each patient obtains the optimal medication for their individual needs. Growing In Health's PCLs are dedicated to setting the standard in the Commonwealth and eventually beyond in the ever-evolving field of alternative medicine.

     Our mission is to provide customizable strategies to patients seeking alternative solutions for chronic illnesses. GIH steps in where traditional medicine hasn't worked and/or to supplement traditional medicine where it has left gaps in care. Our aim is to empower patients by providing education that allows them to make informed decisions about their health.
