READY TO FIND A HEALINGSTRONG GROUP?
WE ARE IN THE UNITED STATES, CANADA AND SEVERAL COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD!
The HealingStrong™ group network began after a team of holistic cancer thrivers and caregivers came together to offer a faith-based holistic conference and retreat: 2013 HealingStrong Conference and Retreat. Speakers Chris Wark, Ty Bollinger, Cherie Calbom, Robert Scott Bell, Dr. Linda Isaacs and others taught holistic principles that heal, but more important – people connected. Hope was given, and lives were changed. It was life-giving and participants wanted to continue to meet long after the event was over.
From it, a true grassroots movement of local groups was formed and continues to gain momentum today. Today, HealingStrong groups are made up of people whose desire is to get and/or stay healthy, using a holistic approach of natural, non-toxic therapies.
HealingStrong Groups meet all around the United States, Canada and a handful of international countries. Our groups are independently run by amazing individuals who have experience with holistic therapies as a thriver, caregiver or practitioner. These leaders have completed an application process with HealingStrong, actively participate in monthly leadership and continuing education calls, and agree to follow a HealingStrong curriculum and present information and resources that align with the organization.
“Thank you for offering me a safe place for me to learn with others who believe in holistic healing from a cancer diagnosis.”
“Thanks so much for reminding me how much we are all loved by sharing Christ’s love in your emails and the groups. “
“We are new to HealingStrong after experiencing a heart attack. Our first meeting was exactly what we needed. My doctor told me to become vegan to treat my disease and this meeting helped support my new lifestyle change.”

What can I expect when I attend a group meeting?
Groups are designed to connect folks with others interested in learning or sharing about natural, holistic strategies. All groups have a structure that they adhere to in terms of framework. For example, all groups offer a lesson that focuses on either: diet, detoxification, supplementation, emotional healing, dental toxicity, understanding the basics of cancer, healing protocols and adjunct therapies. Some groups provide healthy snacks. In addition, groups may have a speaker on the topic. There will be time for discussion and an opportunity for others to share their own experiences. The groups end and send with affirmations based on scripture. The groups range in size from 5 to 25 and lasts for 1.5-2 hours.
Where are group meetings held?
In a variety of places: churches, community centers, libraries, corporate conference rooms, juice bars, wellness centers, doctors’ offices, and on occasion, a private residence. We have even had meetings in the break room of a local hardware store.
What if I can't find a group in my area?
