What is Wellthoughts?
According to the World Health Organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” On the other hand, wellness is the “active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.” Wellthoughts is a research blog dedicated to informing readers of the newest trends in alternative medicine, the mind-body connection and generally uncommon healing practices – because health isn’t just for doctors anymore. We combine news, science, and opinion to identify the most powerful ways you can heal your body and be your best self. We believe that wellness is more than being free from illness, but rather a dynamic process that promotes growth and change. In the words of Thomas Edison, we too believe that “doctors of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” Our mission in creating wellthoughts is to challenge the way we think of wellness, discover how we can restore balance between our bodies and minds, and empower people to become advocates of their own health.
