A Message From the Founder
We have a passion to publish information about well-being! What could be more important than health? What would it feel like to be completely healthy? An early background in editing a publication about science, religion, and philosophy led to this fervent question about health. What is the power of the mind over the body in medicine? How does nutrition make a difference?
Nutritional, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health. By 1978 many healthcare professionals had been using mind-body medical techniques as well as nutrition and complementary medicine in their patients prior to engaging the benefits of drugs or surgery. These natural interventions helped prevent disease and heal both minor and major illnesses, including cancer. Therefore, there emerged a passion to publish documentation, stories, and science-based evidence for natural health.
The answer to a question about job change was the unfolding of creating Well Being Journal. A clear intention evoked an elevated feeling, which led to starting a Macintosh Plus computer and creating the layout for the first issue—in 1991. It was—and is now—a family business.
Our editorial decisions are based solely on evaluation of the merit of each article. No advertiser has a voice in the material we publish. However, we very much appreciate those who offer health services and helpful products in the Journal.
From regional to national. Although it began in the Seattle region, today the Journal is distributed nationwide and internationally. It is available by print or digital subscription. Print issues are sold in stores throughout North America. These include but are not limited to Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and many regional chains and co-ops nationwide like them, such as PCC, New Seasons, Nature’s Own, and Healthy Nutrition.
