We are

Wired for Resilience

rewire your brain
reclaim your health
reconnect to your vital-side

Vital-Side’s innovative approach to brain retraining is designed to help you to find freedom from debilitating symptoms of chronic illness to achieve long-term, sustainable results.

Our virtual programs provide a modern approach to finding comprehensive solutions to limbic system impairment (LSI), which is often related to chronic symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, pain, dizziness, & stress.

We combine neuroscience, neuro-linguistic programming, & a little extra TLC to help regulate your nervous system to set your physical body up for success.

The Vital-Side membership includes a comprehensive brain retraining virtual course designed for people with chronic illness & chronic symptoms. Learn the protocols to go from fight-or-flight to growth-and-repair in just 5 days. With this membership, you'll have full access to the membership page, which contains group sessions, discounted private sessions, and lifetime access to the course!

If you have completed another brain training program, it may be time to revitalize your practice with a brain training "audit." These sessions are for those who are looking to improve their current daily practice. If you are feeling stuck and stagnant in your practice, it's time to elevate, personalize, and flip your practice on its side to keep you motivated, inspired, and accountable for transformation.

Are you living in fight-or-flight?

let's find out

Hi, y'all!

I'm Lindsay Mitchell,

... founder & CEO of Vital-Side and your personal 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 120 lb. puppy, 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 science. Our approach is simple: let's rewire the brain to optimize its functioning and allow the body do the rest.

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.
