About Us
The Perception Medicine Foundation is a nonprofit start-up/social venture company dedicated to broadening our scientific and practical understanding of how the human mind directly influences the genesis, advancement, regression, and remission of disease.
 
In addition to funding traditional research, we also explore linkages with more esoteric and less quantifiable sciences, taking a divergent, encompassing approach to any treatment or modality that offers reliable and credible indications of merit. We are thus committed to thinking outside the box when it comes to addressing serious disease and illness, while remaining grounded in established research and scientific protocols.
 
Our efforts are focused in three areas:
 
    •    Convening thought leaders in diverse fields to shape and evolve the conversation of what constitutes “perception medicine” and its underlying model of healing.
    •    Funding and collaborating on cutting-edge research projects that study the mechanisms involved with the mind-body healing response and that push the boundaries of existing knowledge.
    •    Building a user-friendly archive of research that includes a database of remission cases and a directory of studies that address the mind-body healing dynamic. We also propagate our findings and insights through creative, dynamic, viewpoint-changing projects in diverse media that will enlighten the world to deeper truths about the healing process and our human potential.
