Vital-Side’s innovative and modern approach to intentional brain retraining is designed to help those suffering from chronic symptoms find relief and achieve long-term, sustainable results.

Our virtual programs provide comprehensive, step-by-step solutions to limbic system impairment (LSI), which is often related to chronic symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, pain, sensitivities, and stress.

We combine a variety of techniques rooted in the latest neuroscience including mental exercises, mental rehearsal, visualization, and more to regulate the nervous system and help bring both mind and body into their most optimal state.

The Vital-Side 4-Step Method

This course is designed to reset your survival responses and give you a taste of what it's like to be a brain retrainer inside Rewire, The Vital-Side Membership. We go through the basics on how we can reset our autonomic nervous system to feel good. You'll receive one short video (7 minutes or less) every day for 7 days that includes daily techniques to help you make positive changes to your brain and connect to your body’s natural resilience. This if for the person with chronic symptoms, who is wanting to learn more information about their brain & body communication. You'll leave with one tool to schedule throughout the day to reset your autonomic nervous system and access a state of rest-and-digest.

This is an annual membership that includes a comprehensive, 10+ hour virtual video course designed for people experiencing chronic symptoms and chronic conditions. Learn the structured (yet flexible) protocols to develop your daily brain retraining practice and calm the chronic stress response, so you can start to connect with your body's natural resilience. You'll also learn the neuroscience behind making positive changes to your brain, and you'll leave with a simple practice to access peace and ease in your body. Throughout the course, you'll learn quick, guided state changers, as well as a 20-minute mental exercise you'll be completing every day for about 6 months. Your membership will grant you access to a private member cohort, one week of free access to our recorded or live group sessions, add-on private sessions with Lindsay, & more!

Prerequisite: 3+ months as an active brain retrainer inside Vital-Side or another brain retraining program. This is for brain retrainers who want specific information on how to re-invigorate their daily practice because they feel stuck, unmotivated, or stagnant in their practice. Designed to be completed in as little as 6 weeks or as long as 3 months, you'll learn to improve your visualization skills, incrementally train to reach your goals, and add play to your practice to make it light, fun, and full of purpose. This is a great substitute for private coaching sessions, and you'll have access to a private forum where you can connect with brain retrainers all over the world from all different programs. You can pay as you go for this monthly subscription (& you can try this out - your first week is free!)

Prerequisite: 6+ months as an active brain retrainer inside Vital-Side or another brain retraining program.

Hi, y'all!

I'm Lindsay Mitchell,

... founder & CEO of Vital-Side and your brain retraining coach! Vital-Side was conceptualized through my own experience with chronic illness, as well as my medical background as a physician assistant and extensive neuroplasticity training, to provide a unique framework designed to effectively calm the chronic stress response and support the body in its optimal functioning. What I enjoy most about Vital-Side is getting to know my members personally, and I chat with them daily on our private forum. They can tell you, I love to laugh, go on hikes with my 110 lb. dog, and find creative ways to make brain retraining approachable & fun.

What is


Vital-Side’s mission is to empower those suffering from chronic illness and chronic symptoms to find relief from their symptoms and gain freedom in their lives. We do this through the application of mental exercises and techniques designed to take the brain from a state of survival to one of growth and repair. These tools are non-invasive, empowering, and backed by the latest science. Our approach is simple: let's rewire the brain to optimize its functioning and allow the body do the rest.

★★★★★ on Google and Facebook

This is great for anyone that is just starting to retrain their limbic system, as well as anyone that is deep in the process. This program provides a caring, detailed approach that supports any aspect of limbic system impairment and is a tailored experience, specific to one's needs.


I was skeptical and had no idea what to expect, but Lindsay explained the science behind each step we worked through. When I started to do the exercises, I noticed a change within the first week. Now, I stick to doing them all the time because I know they make me feel better.


Being able to do this from home via video was very personal. Lindsay is so positive that it is almost impossible not to feel uplifted. It is amazing how much lighter and more positive I felt after learning I could heal myself! I immediately felt better after doing a few minutes of practice.
