VIVI® brings life to living by offering our patented Whole Person, Whole Life, and Whole Community approach to our Healthcare and well-being.
With all of the advances in technology, our current healthcare system has failed to effectively capture and analyze the data needed to treat patients dealing more effectively with brain health issues.
VIVI® offers a pathway beyond the limitations of modern medicine to address the entire body and mind — throughout our lives and throughout our communities.
"Whole Person, Whole Life, and Whole Community"
We leverage technology to capture and normalize data, allowing us to address each individual’s unique needs more effectively, creating a more innovative Ecosystem that works to advance the body’s natural path of repair and balance. From cell to system, and from emotional to spiritual - VIVI® exits to inform choices, nurture relationships, and present positive paths within a forum of human dignity, support, and personal responsibility.
VIVI® is a transformative dialogue between nature, science, technology, patients, practitioners, and the communities that support us — and benefit from the soundness of our bodies and minds.
VIVI® digs to the root of our physical and emotional injury, disease, or struggle by asking better questions, advanced diagnostics, and authentic human connection that results in better treatments, outcomes, and enduring care.
We see the big-picture and look for that which cannot be seen — all the while separating effect from cause and symptom from source — to support healing, promote balance, and empower individuals, families, and populations with empathy, equity, and sincerity.
Whether we are listening to our bodies, tapping into a body of knowledge shared over millennia, or zooming in the with most advanced diagnostic tools the world has ever known — VIVI® promotes an open dialogue between old and new, known and unknown, natural and manmade to ensure we live longer, better, happier.

Diagnostics, Treatment, and Care
VIVI® advances a wholistic approach to the health and well-being. Founded on a complementary balance of traditional medicine and allopathic practice — VIVI® offers an interdisciplinary, multidimensional ecosystem of transformative diagnostics, treatments, and behavioral modeling to address the root of our problems, the core of our being, and the responsibility we have to ourselves and others.
VIVI® diagnostics and testing is more than state-of-the-art equipment — more than interpreting numbers and norms. VIVI® is about reading the emotional state of our patients and their family members, showing pathways, and serving the individuals and families we are entrusted to guide and care.
Beyond orthodoxy and within nature, we unmask cause and eliminate that which impedes our healing, diverts our focus, or diminishes our ability to be all that we want to be - ourselves.

Jeff Haugland is a United States veteran and former US Army Bomb Technician and Trainer who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan wars and sustained multiple injuries in the line of duty.
Upon diagnosis and obtaining the understanding of the condition, he became a student of Traumatic Brain Injury Diagnosis and Treatment seeking world class procedures and treatments. This expanded into a drive of Jeff’s to help others from suffering Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post-Traumatic Stress stemming from his own experience, and was the motivation behind creating Invictus Project, and non-profit center. Under the name VIVI, Jeff has partnered with the Hemp Alliance Group for the financial planning, marketing, and acceleration of the clinical business model.
Our vision is to change the way we treat ourselves, our families, and our communities by investing in ever-expanding ecosystem of healthcare knowledge, practice, and exploration that supports our bodies natural path to healing and balance through the promotion of a Whole Person, Whole Life, and Whole Community approach to Health and Wellbeing. In doing so, we look to heal beyond pain, live beyond hope, and realize that the vision of our better selves is found with the positive relationships we recognize in nature, and nurture in our daily lives, and promote within our society.

Did you know "experiencing three or more concussions, even mild ones, can lead to cognitive problems decades later, according to research published in the Journal of Neurotrauma. But just one moderate to severe concussion — or traumatic brain injury (TBI), in medical terms — was found to have a long-term impact on brain function, including but not limited to memory issues." - Washington Post
VIVI was created based on a need to address this very issue, something the medical community has mostly ignored and just treated with pharmaceuticals, masking over treating the problem. Our founder, Jeff Haugland, developed a process that actually works to restore and repair over masking and hiding it. He wrote a white paper and tested, winning a SBIR (small business innovation reward) from the Department of Defense and now we just need to raise the money necessary to open our first clinic and start treating brain health in a more holistic and effective manner.
“The global annual incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) is anywhere from 27 to 69 million. Some of the reasons for this wide variation in the incidence rate include inconsistencies in testing for and defining what constitutes a TBI, the presence of confounders like substance use and medical/mental illness, and the variation in the extent of and the timing of the onset of symptoms. What is consistent though is the morbidity and socioeconomic burden that TBIs cause. In 2010, the economic impact of TBI in the United States was estimated to be $76.5 billion in direct and indirect costs.
Active-duty officers and Veterans are disproportionately affected by TBIs, a price they pay repeatedly to protect our liberties and way of life. Unfortunately, the same inconsistencies in diagnosis also affect treatment protocols and ultimately clinical outcomes. TBI patients are often misdiagnosed and treated with therapies that target prevailing symptoms as opposed to addressing core TBI pathology and as a result, they have some of the worst clinical outcomes.
The patented protocol that Jeff Haugland and the VIVI team is proposing aims to improve our ability to identify and differentiate TBIs from some of the multiple confounders that sometimes prevent early intervention. They suggest a treatment protocol that specifically targets and attempts to retard and/or reverse the damage caused by TBIs. The testimonies that you hear above are from people who have seen tremendous benefit from the VIVI trials. These same people were willing to pay the ultimate price to keep us safe; supporting treatment protocols that may improve their clinical outcomes and improve their quality of life pales in comparison.”

“Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death and disability in the western world. In the United States, there are up to four million TBIs per year, and the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) reported 500,000 TBIs among U.S. service members between 2000 and 2022. Although most TBIs are considered mild or concussion, these injuries can have serious long-term effects on biological and cognitive-behavioral functioning, as well as mental health.
Indeed, some 20% of civilians and 40% of Vets with TBI will experience a persisting cluster of symptoms known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS). Those with PCS frequently have significant co-morbidities such as post-traumatic stress, persisting post-traumatic headaches, depression, and anxiety. Unsurprisingly, those with PCS have higher rates of incarceration, unemployment, divorce, and suicide.
Currently, there are no validated treatments for PCS, making it one of the greatest challenges in clinical science. What therapies do exist typically consist of occupational therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, or pharmaceutical therapies that target symptoms instead of pathophysiology. This is a critical shortcoming as the multi-dimensional pathophysiology associated with TBI is increasingly well understood. Chronic inflammation, cortical hyperexcitability and glutamate over-binding, and autonomic dysfunction underly the cognitive, somatic, and affective symptoms of PCS, and predispose an individual to long-term neurodegeneration. Therefore, any effective therapy should target one or more of these pathophysiological processes.
The patented protocol that Jeff Haugland and the VIVI team are proposing seeks to directly address these three critical aspects of pathophysiology. Although their focus is targeted interventions, their team also seeks treat the whole person and tailor their therapies to the individual as everyone and every TBI is different. Furthermore, by affiliating with cutting-edge scientists and renowned clinicians, the VIVI team will continue to develop and refine their protocols to deliver the highest quality care to those who need it most.”

“I have worked for over 30 years caring for active-duty service members and veterans. The impact of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) to a veteran and his or her family has life-long implications and its ties to suicidal behavior cannot be overlooked. This injury may present symptoms immediately after sustaining a TBI or months to years later.
Symptoms can range from headaches and sleep disturbances all the way to substance abuse, personality changes and suicidal ideation. Treating these patients holistically, over their remaining lifespan, is critical to understanding the sequala of a TBI and ensuring the optimal health and well-being of the patient and his or her family.
When I was introduced to Jeff Haugland, he told me about his life’s mission to find effective treatments for untreated TBI, especially, though not exclusively, those afflicting the military veteran population. As a veteran myself, I’m interested and supportive of any effort committed to treating TBI. We in the US military have all made a promise to never leave a fallen comrade, and through efforts like Jeff Haugland’s, we will not leave anyone with a brain injury behind.”
