A Message From the Founder
We have a passion to publish information about well-being. We want to know, “What would it be like to feel completely healthy?” An early background in editing a national publication about comparative science, religion, and philosophy led to deeper curiosity. What is the power of the mind over the body in medicine? How does nutrition make a difference?
The answer to a question about job change was the imagining of Well Being Journal into reality. A clear intention evoked an elevated feeling. These led to starting a Macintosh Plus computer and creating the layout for the first issue of Well Being Journal—in 1991. It was then—and is now—a family business.
Nutritional, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health. Many leading-edge healthcare professionals had been using mind-body medical techniques as well as nutrition and complementary medicine instead of drugs or surgery. They found these interventions helped prevent disease and heal both minor and major illnesses, including cancer. We published some of this growing research in the first issue. Readers liked the Journal and it became economically viable to continue.
Do advertisers’ interests influence our editorial decisions? Our decisions are based solely on evaluation of the merit of each article. No advertiser has a voice in the material we publish. However, we appreciate those who promote health services and products in the Journal.
From regional to national. Today, the Journal is distributed nationwide and internationally. It is available by print or digital subscription. Print issues are sold over-the-counter in North America through chain and independent book and health stores. These include but are not limited to Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and many regional chains and co-ops nationwide, such as PCC, New Seasons, Nature’s Own, and Healthy Nutrition.
We hope you enjoy and benefit from the articles on our site. We think you would not regret subscribing to our quarterly as well! You might also consider our free e-newsletter; when you sign up you’ll receive a complimentary special edition of the Journal. Too, our library is rich with perennial issues available for purchase in either print or digital format. A search could provide information amazingly helpful to you or your friends and family.
It’s good to be in well being!
