Family Membership with FHCi

Overview

FHCi is a membership organization, and family access to HP falls under the umbrella of FHCi Family Membership. Like “Raw food” groups or similar organizations, access to products and/or services not approved by the FDA is made possible through membership organizations like FHCi. Organization membership creates a legal pathway for both providers and consumers of the product or service. To access the FHCi HP program for your children under the umbrella of FHCi and its agents (HP Supervisors), you will be joining our organization. Your FHCi Family Membership also helps fund the work we do to make HP available to your family and others. The information below outlines the nature of our organization and the relationship you are entering into with your FHCi Family Membership.

Note: FHCi Family Membership is facilitated by your HP Supervisor at the time of your enrollment. Please use the map at the right or CLICK HERE to locate an HP Supervisor near you.
For families entered in the research 2009- Dec 31, 2014 and those who have registered between Jan 1 2015 to July 14, 2017 only, please USE THIS LINK to access your Family Membership enrollment form.

IT IS HEREBY DECLARED that we are exercising our right of “freedom of association” as guaranteed by the 1st and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution and equivalent provisions of the various State Constitutions. This means that our association activities are restricted to the private domain only.

We proclaim the freedom to choose for ourselves the types of products, therapies and self-help modalities that we think best. We encourage our members to perform their own research by studying different resources to prevent illness, diseases of our minds and bodies, and for achieving and maintaining optimum wellness. We proclaim and reserve the right to include health options that include, but are not limited to: cutting edge treatment modalities and therapies practiced or used by any types of healers or therapists or practitioners the world over whether traditional or nontraditional, conventional or unconventional. While most of the Homeopathic nosodes used in the HP program are registered with the FDA under the HPUS there may be a time when the FTC or FDA limits access or availability of these products. The Association is dedicated to ensuring continued access to HP.

Specifically, the mission of The Association is to change existing life circumstances through teaching alternative health awareness, which enables members to improve their physical well-being and to provide members with the highest level of research and the most effective modalities for prevention.
