Chanda’s (founder of The Chanda Plan Foundation) interest in alternative health care started in 2003. Her spinal cord injury had compromised her health to the degree that her weight had dropped to 59 pounds, she had chronic pain and her immune system had depleted to a dangerous level leading to 911 emergency care and numerous doctor visits. Chanda and her sister decided to take the actions they discussed regarding her participation in alternative healing treatments. As a yoga instructor, Crystal was privy to valuable resources. In the following months Chanda’s engagement in acupuncture, massage therapy, diet and physical therapy enabled her to gain 20lbs and become almost pain free. In addition, her endurance, strength and movement increased dramatically.
Medicaid, which is a primary insurance that people with disabilities often have to turn to for healthcare and homecare expenses created by their disability, will not fund alternative treatments. Through a concerted outreach effort, Chanda developed a team of healers that provided her treatments for zero cost.
Due to her once unimaginable improvements, Chanda is dedicated to having these treatments accessible for others. Her dedication created The Chanda Plan Foundation. As a non-profit foundation, licensed/certified practitioners provide treatments to clients who are experiencing health problems created by their disability.
