Become an EBT Ambassador

Help Bring EBT to the World!

EBT is a neuroscience-based program that empowers people to be resilient in response to the #1 epidemic of our times: stress overload.

EBT can be used for prevention and treatment the 75 – 90% of health problems that are caused by stress overload and promote optimal well-being.

Many applications of EBT are available, including corporate memberships, coverage by health care plans, disaster relief access, prevention and treatment of obesity, diabetes, depression, anxiety, grieving, suicide prevention and family support of those who are most in need. Sponsorship and gifts for the intensive or basic membership for groups and individuals is another important opportunity for accessing the benefits of resilience and stress-symptom relief.

We invite you to become an EBT Ambassador and help share EBT with others. Whether you are a grateful participant, dedicated researcher, clinician or provider or a government or corporate employee who wants to bring EBT to your organization, please help us bring EBT to the world.

Support the EBT mission of raising the set point of the planet one person and one group at a time and be recognized as a leader in EBT who is helping reduce stress and promote purpose in the world through the power of neuroscience and warm support.
