The EDS Wellness HelpLine phone line is available on certain days each week, based on the availability of our volunteers. The HelpLine offers limited one on one private calls, scheduled in 15 minute time slots. Please make sure to check when the HelpLine phone line is open, as the schedule changes each week. Please remember that all private calls with HelpLine volunteers are scheduled in 15 minute increments – one session per person per day. Availability of private calls varies based on availability of our volunteers, who devote their time freely to our HelpLine. Please be courteous and cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled HelpLine call.
Please do not call our office number for HelpLine-related questions, as we will direct you back to the HelpLine email to have someone help answer your question and try to provide you the information that you are requesting.
Additionally, EDS Wellness offers private patient advocacy services, integrative health & wellness coaching sessions, and online group classes and seminars for nominal fees.
To learn more about our patient advocacy and health and wellness coaching services, as well as our online group classes and seminars, please go to Integrative Health & Wellness Coaching.
