Mission Statement

The mission of BalancePoint Institute is to promote preventive health care and wellness through scientific research, information dissemination, programs, and projects with a focus on the family of chronic inflammatory diseases, including cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, and arthritis.


Based upon a fundamental belief in the body's vital ability to heal and maintain itself, the Institute concentrates its activities on research and implementation of non-pharmaceutical interventions, principally in the areas of nutrition, exercise, and stress management.  These are interventions that can serve as first line treatments as well as an adjunct treatment with other medical interventions.


Chronic inflammation has been increasingly linked

to a wide range of diseases.
