Dr. Pearson dedicated his life to taking care of people in need.  He founded three free and low cost clinics serving people without insurance or adequate funds to pay for care.

Dr. Pearson sponsored local charity activities and fundraisers to help local teen GLBT groups fund and operate centers dedicated to helping at risk and homeless GLBT youth. 

Dr. Pearson provided house calls 24/7 to his patients.  These house calls provided greatly needed home care for people who are home-bound and for those too ill to come to the clinic.   Patients' lives were saved by Dr. Pearson providing emergency care on house calls.  Many of these patients lived alone and relied on Dr. Pearson for quality care.

Dr. Pearson accompanied patients to the ER and would advocate, provide medical history, and be with the patient while waiting for family.

 We found the cure for plague of the 21st century!

"We can prevent and treat deadly cancers with a medicine that doesn't kill healthy cells.  Chemotherapy attacks every type of cell causing them to die, it's non-discriminatory.  The anti-cancer constituents in marijuana effectively kill cancer cells without hurting healthy cells.  There is no nausea, hair loss, or other toxic side effects of medical marijuana.  It's proven!  How can we morally and ethically withhold this effective cancer prevention & treatment that has no negative side effects?"  

-Dr. Lindsey Pearson 

Dr. Pearson revolutionized chronic pain management by his historic work using medical marijuana safely and effectively in the treatment of chronic pain conditions that were not controlled or managed with  deadly narcotic prescriptions such as oxycodone.  

Dr. Pearson effectively treated over 2,500 patients using non-invasive, non-lethal ​integrative pain options with out the need for opiate pain medications. Dr. Pearson is one of the pioneering physician-scientists working clinically with medical marijuana to effectively treat and cure chronic pain, cancer ​and other debilitating conditions - including his work with combat veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.​  Dr. Pearson effectively treated pain using medical marijuana and marijuana extracts without the need for any pain medication of any kind.  Hundreds of patients were able to discontinue the use of deadly narcotics such as oxycodone and Vicodin.


Dr. Pearson worked with military veterans who suffer from PTSD and other combat related illnesses.  His historic work with combat vets with PTSD and medical marijuana, improved the lives of many veterans who previously had no option.  Dr. Pearson continues his work with veterans through his no cost Veteran Integrative Care (VIC) workshops that teach vets how to cope with stress better through integrative stress management techniques.   ​ 

From Dr. Pearson:


I developed the Veterans Integrative Care workshops to help veterans who are suffering from combat action.  I am the son of a Marine Vietnam combat veteran with PTSD.  I truly understand first hand how the struggles of the veteran affects his or her family.  I want to help veterans find stress management and coping techniques that works for them so they can lower their stress, tension, irritability, and depression. 

Some of the techniques I cover in my VIC workshops include:  

  • Using Bach Flower Remedies such as Rescue Remedy  
  • Breathing Exercises to Eliminate Anxiety 
  • Using Essential Oils to Stimulate Relaxation State 
  • Using Amino Acids at Bedtime to Improve Sleep 
  • Mindfulness & The Mind-Body Connection 
  • Progressive Muscle Relaxation ​
  • Self Massage Care and Couples Stress Massage Techniques ​
  • Lifestyle & Diet tips to Manage Stress 
  • Acupuncture & Acupressure for PTSD and Stress  

Dr. Pearson's next free VIC workshop is on ..To Be Announced in September 2018.
