About The Healthy

Wellness is part of being human, but so is illness. From the publishers of Reader’s Digest, backed by 98 years of delivering trusted content that informs and inspires, The Healthy provides real, science-backed answers for your most important health questions and problems. Whether that’s finding out what nutrients you really need (and where to get them), how to navigate the healthcare system, which home remedies or alternative therapies are worth trying, or the best ways to deal with your own—or a family member’s—anxiety, depression, pain, or chronic condition, you’ve come to the right place.

Most of us journey through seasons of wellbeing and illness. At The Healthy, we understand that being sick is not being broken, and “the healthy” is not an exclusive club. We meet people where they are on their health journey, providing a comprehensive and holistic view of health and wellness that is broad without being superficial, deep without being clinical. We champion healthy habits and attitudes for body and mind, even when (and perhaps especially when) our bodies do not cooperate. We go deep on traditional therapies, but we also go beyond the doctor’s office to explore the wisdom and scientific evidence surrounding alternative treatments and home remedies.

We know that people are more than their diagnosis. Our goal is to take a responsible look at the efficacy and risks of all paths to wellness and to show the human face of both wellness and illness. We embrace the power of storytelling to say something real and true about causes, treatments, and recovery—the whole lived experience of understanding, confronting, and overcoming (or making peace with) a health condition.

Our Mission

At The Healthy, we understand that people are overwhelmed by the volume of available health and wellness advice, which is often conflicting or perceived as biased. We strive to streamline and curate a content collection that helps you locate not only information but experiences that resonate with your particular concern or condition. To give you a deeper understanding of where that information comes from and the evidence that supports it.

Health decisions can be hard. The Healthy makes them easier.

Our Editorial Team

Every day our editorial team talks to experts—scientists, patients, doctors, nurses, dentists, and registered dietitians, just to name a few—to deliver accurate and honest answers to your health questions.

Our content is based on scientific studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals; recognized organizations that provide health information like the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; first-person stories from people who have experienced a specific health condition or problem;  as well as medical experts with years of experience.

Our Medical Review Process

When creating health content it’s crucial to use authoritative experts and to back up claims with references to medical studies published in peer-reviewed journals and science-based facts. The Healthy articles are written by staff editors, qualified writers, and subject-matter contributors. Content with serious medical claims is vetted by a team of consulting doctors and medical professionals that make up our Medical Review Board.

Our Medical Review Team

Our Medical Review team is made up of physicians and experts with significant experience in their fields, including cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, and more. These professionals share our commitment to providing our readers with the very best and most authoritative health information on the internet.  They review existing and newly created clinical content, making sure our health information is factually correct.
