Welcome To The Wholistic Health Alliance

Let us build for the future by making our communities healthier

About Us

Wholistic Health Alliance is a nationally launched 501c3, non-profit organization with the vision of building healthy communities as well as providing a platform for holistic health practitioners to come together under one umbrella, fostering collaborations, building stronger networks and enabling greater synergy with the community. WHA provides a robust Directory to assist your search for a holistic practitioner of your choice effectively, in your own geographical area. We currently operate in the states of Massachusetts and Colorado, and are actively looking to expand into other states.

Let us join hands to build healthier communities

Our mission is simple - to build healthier communities through education and dissemination of information about simple tools for prevention and holistic solutions for health and wellness, through free, year-round events, publication of articles, and more. This not only benefits and empowers the community, it also gives exposure and visibility to the holistic practitioners who deliver the talks and write the articles.

WHA also strives to bring the holistic practitioner community together for networking, enhanced inter-disciplinary collaborations, and for simply learning more about other holistic modalities and their respective approaches to health and wellness. In addition to our year-round talks and events, we hold practitioner meetings and fun get-togethers to build a strong, well-connected body of holistic professionals.

WHA Founder Dr. Pratibha Shah, envisioned and launched the Youth Brigade initiative in 2017 with the vision to engage and empower youth in topics around health. It is targeted toward youth in the age group of 13-19, with the belief that healthy habits should be inculcated young. The Youth Brigade platform provides an opportunity for our Youth to meet periodically, in an environment that fosters conversations around health, in their own ‘lingo’ within their own ‘tribe’, inspiring and supporting one another, hopefully entrenching them soundly onto a healthier life through education, interaction and role modelling, while also developing leadership qualities. Participating and contributing in non-profit activities allows them to give back to their community as well. WHA gives volunteer hours to all participating youth.

Our long-term goal is to impact policy. We are working on integrating complementary and alternate forms of medicine into mainstream healthcare, as well as public health programs.

We are inviting members, both practitioners as well as organizational, and are always looking for ways to collaborate to further our goals of creating healthy communities. Please follow us on Twitter and Instagram, “like” our Facebook page and subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated on our activities.

The W in the Wholistic:

If you are wondering whether we got the spelling of the word holistic wrong, I am happy to share that it is not an error. There is a reason you see the W there. W stands for Whole - it denotes We as against I. We want our Alliance to be the 'Whole' and the 'We' where all likeminded health professionals can join hands for the greater good of the community!

Vision

Educate, engage and empower our communities to be healthier.

Mission

Our Mission is to create a strong network of holistic health practitioners which is intimately connected with the community, and to build bridges with the mainstream health care, with the consumer at the center of all our endeavors.

Building Healthy Communities

We are not just a Directory! We are an intimate body of holistic practitioners and members from the community, committed to bringing health and wellness information and tools to the masses.

Technical Lead,
WHA App Team

I am Shitij Govil, a sophomore at Marvin Ridge High School. I am the Technical Lead for the Wholistic Health Alliance’s (WHA) Youth Brigade and currently working on a mobile app to help promote WHA’s goal of creating healthier communities by making a product that is convenient and accessible to all on their phones. When I was asked to lead the development of the app, I jumped on this exciting opportunity to not only enhance my skills but to help others in the process.

One of the defining characteristics of me is that I developed a long-time passion in many STEM-related fields like mathematics and programming. To further my passions, I started tutoring other students to help them learn math ranging from basic arithmetic to calculus as well as how to program using different tools such as Python, Java, and Scratch. I also created a YouTube channel to impart my skills to others . My experiences of teaching have allowed me to not only share my passion, but also grow as a person by interacting with others and developing many life-impacting experiences. As much as I love to dabble in STEM-related fields, I also love playing the violin. These hobbies have taught me important life skills such as diligence, perseverance, critical thinking, and problem solving.

As the Technical Lead of the WHA Youth Brigade, my goal is to leverage all of the experiences I have picked up along the way with my various hobbies and apply them to create an app that enables WHA to truly fulfil its goal of building healthy communities by increasing awareness of alternative forms of well-being.

I like being involved in many activities that relate to my interests, and the youth brigade of the Wholistic Health Alliance is an example of that.
