Holistic Health Research became a nonprofit corporation in May of 2016.  In March 2017, we became a tax-deductible charity.  We are here to do the research no one else is doing: finding natural ways to make people healthier and happier, and to make the world more peaceful.  We hope that through our discoveries we can bring about a shift in consciousness and behavior, changing culture for the better.  Our top priorities are to study natural means of body detoxification, as well as experiments to measure the beneficial effect of prayer and meditation (and focused concentration – control of body energy – in general).  For some experiments, like the Seattle Peace Project, the operation is run entirely by volunteer effort.  For blood detoxification research, very expensive lab tests are required to measure the results of our holistic interventions.  It is crucial for us to discover the best way to rid our bodies of synthetic, cancer-causing chemicals, yet very little research is done in this area.  All money collected will go directly to paying for necessary fees by the state or the testing laboratory.  The results of tests done with donated money will be made available to all on our web page.

The Founder and Director of Holistic Health Research is Troy Reicherter.  Born in May 1968, between the killings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy, he carries with him the spirit of the 60s and a sincere hope for a better world.  He earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Sacramento State University, then spent five years in Taiwan studying Chinese language, culture, and religion.  Troy went to Kunming, China in 1996 to study traditional Chinese medicine, then returned to the U.S. and earned a master’s degree from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco.  After working in the San Jose area as an acupuncturist, Troy went to San Jose State University to become a teacher.  He taught history for five years in Fremont, California, then moved to the Seattle area in 2008.  He earned a second master’s degree in Education in 2010 from City University, and has been teaching continuously for 15 years now.  In addition to teaching about history, he has always wanted to make history, and that is what these projects are all about.
