Reducing High Risk for Chronic Health Conditions & Weakened Immunity

In October 2019, the Center for Disease Control indicated that six in ten adults  in the US have a chronic disease and four in ten adults have two or more.

The 10 most common chronic health conditions (2018) and the National Health Impact  percentage:

1. Hypertension, 12.5%
2. Major Depression, 9%
3. High Cholesterol, 8.6%
4. Coronary Artery Disease, 7%
5. Type 2 Diabetes, 5.5%
6. Substance Use Disorder, 3.4%
7. Alcohol Use Disorder, 3.3%
8. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), 3.3%
9. Psychotic Disorder, 2.9%
10. Crohn’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis, 2.7%

Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) are 1.5 to 2.0 times  more likely to develop many of the major chronic health conditions. Diabetes, lung diseases, and serious heart conditions have been particularly relevant to COVID-19 risk. A 2020 study by John Hopkins found that chronic stress can weaken immunity , making BIPOC communities more vulnerable to diseases like COVID-19 (and the underlying health conditions that increase the risk of COVID-19). Unresolved emotional pain and trauma significantly increase risks for impaired immunity.

Contribute to Community Health & Wellbeing

Living Sanctuary a community-based organization, is raising funds to increase service accessibility.

When you contribute, your gift supports the  Pay-It-Forward program  to provide quality, mind-body/holistic health and wellbeing resources by donation. The participants donations contribute to more donation-based individual and group sessions, workshops, and classes to serve more people. All resources are provided by phone or video conferencing.

We help people heal from oppression and daily life stressors. This includes experiences of income disparity, inequality, injustice, prejudice, discrimination, violence, and systemic racism. Emotional pain and trauma (personal, ancestral, transgenerational, community, and cultural) are addressed to improve health and wellbeing, manage chronic health conditions, strengthen immunity, and optimize quality of life.

Our goal is to raise $1000 by January 31, 2021!

The pandemic and conflicts that have divided the nation have increased the need for emotional-mental support and resources for holistic health and wellbeing. We invite you to contribute to the Living Sanctuary Pay-It-Forward Program. You will be helping people to access care and self-help tools that may be otherwise unavailable to them. We greatly appreciated any amount that you give.

For your contribution of $5 or more, you will receive an immunity health guide. 

Thank you for your gift!
