What is Wellthoughts?
According to the World Health Organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.” Wellness, however, is defined as the “active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.” We believe that wellness is a journey of growth and change, which is why we started Wellthoughts – to inspire and support those who have made the decision to embark on this journey. Wellthoughts is a research blog dedicated to informing readers of a science-backed 360-degree approach to wellness that integrates the physical, mental, emotional, and environmental aspects of well-being together. We combine research, opinions, and news to identify the most powerful ways you can heal your body and be your best self. 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.
