Editorial Process


Our mission is to help practitioners, health coaches, and health enthusiasts get the information they need to fight back against chronic disease. With that mission in mind, we tackle a variety of topics—including the Functional Medicine approach, health coaching, and diet and lifestyle tips that can help prevent or reverse chronic disease. We believe that by giving you the right tools, you can make an impact on your life or the lives of your patients or clients. 


Our content is meant to distill scientific research into simple, useful information that can help you come to practical solutions that suit your needs. We avoid hype, fervor, and alarmist claims, but we’re not afraid to debunk myths—and offer evidence-based reasons behind our thinking. We’re here to motivate, inspire, and give hope to our readers as they help their patients and clients better their health—or as they travel a health journey of their own. 


How We Create Content


Each of our articles is written by an authority on the topic—whether that’s Chris himself, a practitioner, a professional health coach, or a subject matter expert. We strive to bring you data-backed information you can use to inform your practice or your health choices. Every one of our articles undergoes a thorough review by staff prior to publication. Our published articles are periodically updated as new research emerges or as our ideas change and develop. 


Sourcing Our Claims


We focus on providing primary sources for the information in our articles. We source our claims from reputable, peer-reviewed journals or academic associations and include links so our readers can verify information for themselves.
