In this economy, so many families and individual patients are suffering due to the inability to afford treatment-- even if it could save their life. We are bridging that gap by educating charitable foundations, organizations and individuals and encouraging them to donate NOW to save a life.
We believe passionately in being active participants in the communities in which we serve. We provide support to educational organizations and groups that provide leadership service in our community, and work to alleviate suffering and promote healing. Unfortunately the patients who need it the most are severely disabled and those on SSI who cannot afford it. We have provided treatment to many people in need at cost and below cost and strive to help others in the future.
Since our opening, our center has contributed over $125,000 to patients to receive treatment.

Sponsors of the Institute
Susan Swartz inherited her artistic gene from a family of artists and musicians. Since 1998, after raising her family, she has painted full-time from studios in Park City and Martha’s Vineyard.
For years, Susan and her family have enjoyed a relationship with nature. She feels that raising children has allowed her to see this beautiful world through their eyes and has inspired to capture it on canvas.
Susan has established herself as an international artist; her pieces are displayed in private and corporate collections around the world.
"This Clinic saved my life and changed the way I see the world." I used to paint to praise God for all the blessings in my life. Today I paint as if my life depends on it. And it does. I am on my knees every day. Trying to make sense of why God has given me a gift of capturing the divine beauty of nature, and what God meant to teach me about the natural world when my health was robbed by mercury, poisoning, Lyme Disease and heavy metals.
I have been sick for ten years. My hair has thinned out, my gums had eroded, my knees were swollen and my hands and entire body ached. Doctors thought I was depressed and arthritic. My family indulged my symptoms but grew weary of my complaints. There were days when all I could do was lie on the floor, looking up at a blank canvas begging God for the strength to paint.
For two years, often weeks at a time this clinic was my monastery. I would come to the chamber, with books or music, close my eyes and paint my prayers of healing. It was a time of foggy memories, chronic pain and a leap into the unknown. I had to learn to trust my body and alternative ways of looking at health. I changed the way I eat and learned first hand the connections between the environmental pollutants and the impact they have on disease.
Clean water, four seasons, fresh air, trees that give us oxygen and remind us to breathe. This is what I paint, and this is what our future depends on.
While I will never be able to fully thank Janine for all she has taught me, I hope my paintings are one small way that I can inspire those of you who are beginning your own journey towards health and healing. It is a long and often lonely road, but there are people like Janine who walk along side you and give you a place to recover and reclaim your faith and healing. For those gifts and the time she invested in me as a patient and a friend -- I will be forever grateful.”
