Move the Needle Study, currently recruiting.

Making life better for those with chronic conditions.

What if we could change bad days to being better days?
What if you could feel more hopeful and healthy on the hard days?

The Life Energy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that specializes in supporting those with chronic conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, Chronic Pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia. We offer condition-specific programs, research, resources and evidence-based tools designed to improve the health of the nation—starting from our headquarters in the DC area.

As for the future, it remains unwritten. Anything can happen, and often we are wrong. The best we can do with the future is prepare and savor the possibilities of what can be done in the present.

Move the Needle Research Study – COVID-19 Impact

Location: Online
Some 113 million people in the United States have an underlying health condition that puts them at risk of complications of COVID-19. This study aims to find out whether people who become fitter and healthier in a 12-week wellness program will experience fewer symptoms should they catch COVID-19 or even avoid catching it altogether.
Do you know someone who caught COVID-19? Or are you worried that someone close to you might be at risk? Do tell your friends or loved ones about this study. They may wish to take part. And consider making a small donation, which will help us include more people in this study.

Improving life & health for those with diabetes, hypertension, high-cholesterol or obesity.

About our Founder

Hi, I’m Sharon. I know, from personal experience, how frustrating it can be when you feel terrible, and you can’t get answers. I created The Life Energy Foundation so nobody with a chronic condition ever has to feel hopeless or stuck. Through a wealth of non-pharmaceutical interventions and resources, there is so much hope! As someone who also deals with a chronic condition (fibromyalgia), bringing these resources to you isn’t just something I’m passionate about—it’s deeply personal.

How to Get Involved

Make a difference with us. Let’s create a healthier tomorrow for our loved ones, our communities, and our nation!

Chronic means continuous. The good news? Health, improvement, and recovery can be “continuous” too! How can you support The Life Energy Foundation?

Thank you to our incredible sponsors and partners.

COVID-19, now going on for over three months, is officially a chronic condition. Sit with that for one minute. 100% of the US population now has a chronic condition. Symptoms include excessive crankiness, increased resting heart rate, increased blood pressure, anxiety, sleep issues, being harsh on Facebook, and the list goes on. Help us make an impact on all the negative stress out there!

Consider signing up for a program to get healthier and happier, volunteer your time or expertise, or you can donate to help someone less fortunate improve their life.
