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.

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.

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.
