Living with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis can be tough. EMPOWER is here to help.

Our clinically-proven 12-week program will teach you how to harness the power of your mind, energize your body, and help improve your quality of life.

Minimal tech skills are required. This is part of a research study.

I found it really user-friendly, really easy. I loved there was the variety of the different classes, I loved that it was yoga, I don’t usually do yoga. So I really liked that. And I liked that there was like the EZ bytes in there — I usually tried to do the deep dives each time because I was really interested in the breathing and the meditating.

And now at times when I do feel myself getting a little fired up about something I’ll actually just slide into the deep breathing for a few minutes and try to meditate. I am really enjoying that. There are those moments when you realize, oh, wait a minute. I actually didn’t think about anything for a couple of seconds. It is working.

– Robin, past participant

I really listened to all the things that were being said, and paid attention, and then tried to incorporate some of them, especially the whole toward and away from your values. And so I’m actually thinking that when I am stressing about something, and it’s changed how I look at stressful things in my life.

– Sundeep, past participant

I have a busy mind all the time. And that’s my nature, I’m always thinking of things. And so if I’m doing nothing, I don’t get to turn off my mind. And with the program, especially the breathing, you don’t think of anything else! So it was a tool to turn everything off and start again. And so I liked that I found something very useful.

Now that I’ve been in the 12-week program – it really helped with my mobility. It helped with the back pain at the beginning when I was doing the movement. After this, three months of moving with the EMPOWER program, now I don’t feel any, strong strong pain in my back.

-Mitchell, past participant

I noticed that I sleep better. I’m not that nervous and anxious and don’t have that many mood swings. I’m more relaxed and calm

– Conall, past participant

I didn’t meditate at all before the program. I knew that it would help. But I didn’t have the technique, and I didn’t have any clue how to do it. But now I do!

– Tess, past participant

I feel more enthusiastic and more energetic. I feel better and that is exclusive to this program. Nothing else changed my life.

It’s no secret that living with PSC can be challenging, and there are often not enough supports to help individuals cope.

We are aiming to change that with this 12-week mind-body wellness program, and the results have been really promising so far.

This program has been evaluated in people living with inflammatory bowel disease and autoimmune liver disease, and we saw improvements in their quality of life and ability to manage their condition.

Now we are ready to offer this program to a wider audience, and we hope you’ll join us. There are minimal tech skills required, and it takes just 2 minutes to sign up. We’ll be ready to help you every step of the way.
