Recently, Rythmia has been the subject of a New York Times article. The genesis of this article was a podcast that airs on the Fun Network. The host of this podcast is a woman named Carrie Poppy, Carrie, a self-proclaimed atheist uses her show to debunk anything of a spiritual nature. She had traveled to Rythmia to report on the Rythmia experience. Unfortunately, due to her dependence on antidepressants, she was unable to take plant medicine. This, did not keep her from doing her show, which would be tantamount to someone writing a review on a restaurant that they have never eaten at. The absurdity of the situation does not require further commentary, other than saying that Ms. Poppy’s experience is far from that of our normal client.
Our normal client experience is much different. All guests who visit Rythmia are given the opportunity to fill in an electronic survey upon their leaving the center. 93.62% of guests report that they experienced a life-changing miracle during their stay. 97.55% of those guests report that after six months of leaving the center that their week spent here was the week that changed their life. This sentiment is best represented on trip advisor where Rythmia experiences one of the highest consumer ratings of any resort of any type in the world.
During the interview, there was a focus on a suicide of a past client of Rythmia. Suicide is a problem that according to the New York Times is growing at an absurd rate throughout the United States. We are deeply saddened that any alumni of our establishment would experience such a tragic end. Upon leaving our facility the person in question rated resort 4.75 out five stars, reported that she would change nothing to improve her experience and that she would come back. Unfortunately, we cannot be held responsible for what clients do in the days, weeks and months after they leave our facility. Our responsibility to everyone is the safety of that person during their stay. We pride ourselves on our impeccable record of safety.
We are most proud of our safety record which is as follows, in our two and a half years of operation we have hosted over 17,400 individual plant experiences. Three clients experienced situations that they felt needed hospital attention. The first woman, fell at a local flea market and ended up having a fracture in her arm. She, never took plant medicine. The second, bit his tongue and was sent to the hospital to be looked at, stitches were not required. The third had a heart palpitation that was brought on from dehydration and heat, he was released from the hospital upon assessment. These incidences although not plant related were experienced at our center and on a percentage basis make this the safer part of the Rythmia experience. Meaning that being here is safer than driving in a car and flying on a plane to get here.
Due to the nature of the lawsuit that was the subject of the New York Times article we are unable to comment until a court of competent jurisdiction makes a final decision. The company remains confident that justice will prevail and as requested we will be granted all remedies available to us for the improper activities of the defendants.
