WELLNESS WARRIOR

Wellness Warrior was founded in 2011 primarily as a naturopathic consultation organization.  In the years following, it was clear that the adventurous spirit of Dr. Cooney was pushing the organization in a different direction. In 2015 Wellness Warrior’s organizational structure changed and a 501c3 non-profit educational and international relief organization was birthed.  Herbal medicines and essential oil products are created in small batches and used for first aid, primary and acute care, chronic care, international relief, and post-disaster situations. Our training incorporates our product line and is designed to be complementary or alternative to conventional pharmaceuticals in these austere environments. The opportunity for traditional and conventional medicine men and women to work in conjunction with each other to provide the best and most appropriate patient care is at the forefront of our interest.  We do not discourage emergency medical care or transport.

Wellness Warrior uses the sale of our herbal medicines and essential oils to fund self-sustaining projects around the globe. Currently we are building a community in Uganda, Africa. We chose this community for a number of reasons, however our biggest opportunity is to purchase land and move 40 orphaned children into new two homes that will be built.  We will be building a school, herbal medicine clinic, outdoor kitchen, matron home, and gardens that will fund the project long term.

Our educational programs are designed to train both civilian and emergency medical responders how to use basic tactics and natural products immediately following a disaster until definitive care can be provided.  In a wilderness or post-disaster situation, it may be hours to days and even weeks until higher care is possible.  In times like these, conventional medications may run out or become scarce. We also teach these concepts to the self-sustaining communities we are building.
