Welcome to the Center for Sustainable Medicine!
Didi Pershouse, CCH, LAc—thinker, writer, and healer—founded this website in 2006 as a way to share ideas about sustainability and health care in one interconnected place. The Sustainable Medicine Manifesto proposes that real medicine must benefit the whole system—our communities, both human and natural. There is no need to separate the processes of healing ourselves, the environment, and our communities.

Didi Pershouse has received a grant from the Anne Slade Frey Charitable Trust to give talks on sustainability and health care in Transition Towns. (Transition Towns are dedicated to building communities that are resilient in the face of dwindling oil supplies, global warming, and economic crises.) Please contact us if you would like to arrange a talk or workshop on the subject for your town.
