HOMEOSTATIC SYSTEM

About us

We are a team of physicians, psychologists, nurses, and individuals with a strong interest in the interconnectedness of mental and physical health. Our approach is holistic and evidence-based. We offer solutions for clinicians interested in learning more about subjects such as the basics of the Homeostatic Rehabilitation from Stress and Trauma (HRST) Approach, trauma-focused approaches, and more! We also work with clients who are looking to improve their mental and overall health through our counseling services.

Our team comprises individuals who work within the medical and mental health realms and emphasize the holistic approach known as the Homeostatic {Mental} Health Model. This approach examines the importance of lifestyle, cognition, and trauma in our daily lives. We collaborate with medical professionals who are interested in learning more about the homeostatic system (endocannabinoid system) and who want to explore trauma-focused therapy and approaches. Additionally, we work with our clients holistically, offering counseling and mentoring sessions.

Sasha Weedowitch

I am Sasha Weedowitch, the founder of the Homeostatic System Research Group, Homeostatica. Initially, my focus was on studying the medicinal effects of cannabis. In pursuit of understanding these effects, I delved into the intricacies of the endocannabinoid system. However, as my knowledge expanded, I uncovered a more profound system to which the endocannabinoid system belongs—a concept I termed the organless physiological Homeostatic system, in collaboration with my colleague Stefan Broselid, PhD.
Drawing from my background in mental health nursing and psychosocial rehabilitation, I recognized the significant connection between this system and stress and trauma, and how it influences both mental and physical health. This realization prompted me to develop the Homeostatic {Mental} Health Model and the Homeostatic Rehabilitation from Stress and Trauma (HRST) method.
While both approaches are firmly supported by scientific evidence, I believe there is still much to explore. Therefore, I have assembled a team of excellent professionals to form this research group and further our understanding in this field.
