Why Focus On Integrative Health & Integrative Care Services?

Integrative care services can improve wellness and well-being while reducing stress, pain, fear, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Many children with complex medical conditions often endure long and frequent hospitalizations, painful and traumatic procedures, and scary discussions. Caregivers of children with complex medical conditions are often stressed, scared, and exhausted. They - along with their children - can experience medical trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), toxic and chronic stress; and feelings of helplessness, loneliness, and desperation. Some of these families also live in high stress environments in which the children have Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) beyond their medical trauma.

Families are searching for additional support when they find that medicine and medical treatments alone are not fully addressing the needs of their minds, bodies, and spirits. We believe in the importance of holistic and integrative health care. We also hope to improve the quality of these people's lives, while making their every-day life experience easier.

Here are three quotes from caregivers who received support through Eliana's Light:

Life of a single mother of a child with complex needs is an extremely lonely journey. Mental and physical exhaustion from stress and isolation drained me completely. Support received from Eliana’s Light made me feel alive again.
Gracias, Eliana’s Light, por preocuparse por nosotros y siempre tomarnos en cuenta. Quiero agradecerles infinitamente por todo lo que estan haciendo por nosotros, y en principal, por mi nina. Gracias por los regalos que le trajo que van a ser muy util para ella y para nosotros. (Thank you, Eliana’s Light, for concerning yourselves about us, and for always keeping us in mind. We want to thank you infinitely for all you’re doing for us, and especially for our daughter. Thank you for the gifts you brought her, which are going to be very useful for her and for us.)
Eliana’s story has touched my heart, and this foundation has been a great help to my family.
