Dr. Angelica Perry

Dr Perry discovered her capacity to address the issues of the body in her first career as a massage therapist.  Her degrees in clinical nutrition also inform her practice.  She then underwent further intensive training in traditional medicine and Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal manipulation, and as an Osteopathic physician, she now offers hands-on treatment as well as concierge primary care. Osteopathic medicine respects the ability of each body to heal itself. In addition to being used to treat musculoskeletal issues, osteopathic hands-on medicine can be helpful in a number of metabolic or organ dysfunctions. Osteopathic hands-on treatment can help relieve headaches and other pains, improve lymphatic flow, organ function and promote overall health.  Dr Perry can also diagnose and prescribe as needed, and works with each client to tailor a custom regime.  Her complementary approach tailors a full-spectrum wellness program to address any health challenges.  Dr. Perry earned a Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition from Life University in Marietta, Ga., where she was the valedictorian, and a Master of Science degree in clinical nutrition from the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, N.Y. She received her D.O. degree from Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Va. and completed the Riverside Family Medicine Residency in Newport News, Va.

Full Spectrum Wellness Care Osteopathic Care Package – $600

Osteopathic medicine is the practice of partnering between doctor and patient to achieve optimal health. It teaches that we are a unity of body mind and spirit and that each body is capable of self-healing.  Structure and function are interrelated which is why hands-on techniques are used to normalize range of motion, improve the flow of fluids and stimulate each body’s innate powers of repair and rejuvenation. This package includes a 1-hour initial visit and a 1/2 hour follow up visit with Dr. Perry.  Discussion, evaluation, education and medical management are included.  From back pain and headaches to gallbladder or thyroid issues, any function of the body may benefit from improving bony alignment and removing fascial restrictions. Dr. Perry takes the time to listen and respects each person’s right to make their own informed healthcare decisions. 

“She was able to clear up all the residual pain and immobility and taught me some simple exercises that have since cured some joint problems that I thought were from age and arthritis.  Dr. Perry has a gift of healing in addition to her education in Osteopathic Medicine.  I highly recommend her services.” – Paul Wingren

“Angelica Perry has done wonders to help me understand my body and promote better alignment and balance in my body while promoting healing.  A great osteopath and teacher!” – Tara Daystar

Help Luke Heal from Cancer

Our founder and friend, Luke, was diagnosed in February 2020 with Prostate Cancer. Further imagining showed it to be one large tumor and several smaller satellite tumors attached to different organs. Luke made a challenging decision to pursue alternative treatment methods which are not supported by the AMA and standard medical insurances. The various alternative treatments are all available at a hospital in Mexico. Luke is prepared to seek treatment in Mexico for a 3-week intensive program to eliminate the cancer. 

On June 28th Luke will fly to a hospital in Mexico (CHIPSA) where they have been treating cancer for 37 years with alternative methods. Their program includes the following:

CHIPSA Hospital utilizes intravenous Vitamin CK3 as part of our integrative approach to treating cancer and autoimmune disease. Here are some of the protocols they utilize:

  • Coley’s Fluid
  • Vallovax
  • Apatone (IV & Oral Vitamin CK3)
  • Insulin Potentiate Therapy
  • Gerson Therapy
  • Cryoablation
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen

The total cost of travel, treatment, and the stay will be around $35,000. Luke has reserved a spot at the hospital for June 29-July 18th. He is able to come up with $15,000. He is humbly seeking $20,000 to meet his financial needs.

Luke is a visionary pioneer in many fields of human endeavor – from learning to understand the human psyche, sociology, as well as practical solutions to some of the world’s pressing problems of resource conservation, environmental preservation, and the development of renewable energy systems for communities. 

Anyone who knows Luke knows the magic that happens in and because of his Presence.  He lives with an abundance of trust and acceptance knowing in his heart of hearts that what will be will be.  While there is acceptance in Luke’s diagnosis, we are not ready to let this powerfully influential being be taken from us and the community at large! There is so much life and many more offerings that Luke has left to share with the world. The world is a better place because he is in it.

We have less than 4 weeks to raise these funds to support our Beloved friend and brother who is a gift to all who value love, community, consciousness, Truth, generosity, protecting and honoring the sacredness of humanity, and our dearly Beloved Mother Earth and the Universe. 


Luke founded an Intentional Community in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Anahata Bio-Community) and a revolutionary education center (Anahata Education Center) which focus on personal growth, interpersonal relationship, new ways of accessing and processing our unconscious contents, and understanding human behavior and motivation. Another aspect of these centers is the study and application of renewable energy, symbiotic systems and permaculture, as well as other evolutionary modalities and technologies.

Because of his interest in a different approach to education he co-founded Blue Mountain School in the early 80s, and is a strong supporter, both with his time and his money. He serves on the Blue Mountain School Board of Trustees.

From 1979 – 1990 Luke was also the leader in several renewable energy projects which produced ethanol, methane, feed and fertilizer from agricultural and industrial wastes.

In 1991, Luke founded Pragmatic Environmental Solutions Company [PESCO]. As president of PESCO he has led it from modest beginnings to a company with international recognition. PESCO systems are recycling everything from acetone to xylene and motor oil, in locations ranging from Australia to Virginia.

In 2007, PESCO merged with its long term fabrication and engineering partners, Beam Engineering, Pvt. Ltd. to form a new company, PESCO-BEAM Environmental Solutions. PESCO-BEAM continues to develop state of the art environmental equipment and systems.

Luke also served as Board Member and Vice President of Sustain Floyd Organization (SFO – which focuses on creating a sustainable resilient Floyd Community, through the development of local industries which will provide markets for local crops, and creating value added industries for local raw materials, resources and talent.


Let me one more time express my deep gratitude and appreciation for the amazing love and support coming my way, in huge heart-warming waves. May all of us have such sweet experiences at least once in our lives.

Since my initial diagnosis and follow-up MRI I have been doing lots of big and little things to fight the cancer in my body, and I feel that I am making some progress. The treatments include vitamins, immune boosters, complete diet change, raw juices, as well as several types of energy healing. I am still experiencing an eb and flow of appetite and energy, mostly related to the various remedies I am using, and I am getting used to that. When I am in an upswing I feel more energy than I have in months, and in general my body feels very good. I am becoming more and more sensitive to energetic flow, so I am now sensing my own and other peoples emotions as though it were the weather. That is pretty interesting, and in the long run very positive, though I really have to pay attention not to let things pull me off center. Other than that, my life continues to be an amazing series of blessings. I am so grateful for my beautiful wife who is there for me all the way, as well as my wonderful friends, Danielle and Mars, who kicked this off, and all those dear friends who have sent support in many different ways.

Sending love to all of you, Luke
