Editorial Policy & Research Process

We have several different kinds of content at WellBe that require a different research policy and contain views from many different kinds of people. Below please find our research requirements and editorial standards for each.

Expert Interviews:

We interview experts who are credentialed or licensed in some way, with a preference towards those who have many years of education including but not limited to those with a Ph.D., M.D., N.D., or D.O.  Several of those experts have now become part of our medical advisory board (see below).

The information outlined in their interview articles are the views of those experts and do not necessarily represent the views of WellBe. We do, however, support the treatments and methods these experts describe with research from published medical journals, government health organizations, and reputable news organizations whenever appropriate.

This content is for informational purposes only, even if, and to the extent that, this article features the advice of physicians and medical practitioners. Content produced by WellBe is not, nor is it intended to be, a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, and should never be relied upon for specific medical advice.

Investigative Guides:

Our WellBe investigative guides are purely editorial, and in no way should be considered medical advice. However, we only include information in our guides gathered from research published in medical journals, information from government health organizations and reputable news organizations, including but not limited to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.

Inspiration Stories of Health Recovery:

We interview those who have overcome some kind of illness or health issue through a holistic approach or by using integrative medicine in some form. We choose interview subjects based on being able to collaborate their stories through another source (a book or separate interview with a reputable publisher or organization with the same story and details. We also on occasion get confirmation from someone in their story that their story is true as it was told to us).

These are anecdotal, not research-based, and the treatments and methods they used to heal may not work for everyone, and in no way, should be considered specific medical advice or a verified way to treat an illness or health issue. We do, however, support the treatments and methods they describe with research from published medical journals, government health organizations, and reputable news organizations whenever appropriate.

Research Wrap-ups:

Our research is gathered from studies published in medical journals, and we verify our health news through government health organizations and reputable news organizations, including but not limited to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.

Personal Blog Posts from WellBe’s Team:

Any personal opinions or health experiences written by our team are anecdotal, and should not in any way be considered medical advice. However, we support everything we have experienced or presents as facts with research published in medical journals, government health organizations, and reputable news organizations whenever appropriate.

Affiliates:

We, on occasion, use selective affiliate links, which means WellBe may earn a commission from the site linked to if you make a purchase via the link. The price you pay is unaffected by whether you click through from WellBe (i.e., on an affiliate link), or go directly to the vendor’s website using a non-affiliate link. We only use affiliate links on items we love and would include regardless of whether we might earn a commission.
