A Message from Jonathan Lack, Wellnicity Founder & President:
The Internet has ushered in an avalanche of information related to health, wellness and fitness. But it is a difficult task to sift through the self-serving sales pitches and the biased & misleading messages to find accurate but relatable content that can help you and your family improve or maintain good health.
That’s where we come in. Wellnicity is a truly unique site that’s a one-stop location for wellness news, local wellness event information, professional directories as well as evidenced-based health, medical, nutritional and fitness content. Simply put, we’re here to help individuals and families take control of their health by presenting the latest news, research results, medical trends, and fitness advice reported by trusted and reliable sources, as well as our team of experienced and talented writers and wellness professionals.
Wellnicity provides a unique platform for medical and wellness professionals to market themselves to the public in a non-obtrusive manner that allows them to use their experience and credentials to position themselves as trusted experts in their field by serving as a contributing writer to the site.
At Wellnicity, we never take sides. Our only goal is to provide our visitors with unvarnished, unbiased information that they can use to make informed decisions regarding their health. Our primary coverage categories include: Fitness, Medical, Mental Health, Nutrition, Stress Relief and Worksite Wellness.
Fitness: We explore the latest training trends and show visitors how to get the most out of their workouts or how to get started on an effective training regimen to lose weight, increase strength and improve cardiovascular capacity. Our personal trainers, health club professionals and fitness writers will keep visitors on the cutting edge.
Medical: The world of medical research moves fast, and we keep our visitors in the loop on the latest procedures, treatment methods, clinical trials and pharmaceutical developments through articles written by respected medical experts and knowledgeable medical writers.
Mental Health: With millions of people suffering from mental illness not taking advantage of the available help out there, our goal is to assist in finding the answers that can lead to a better quality of life. Articles written by highly trained mental health professionals and our talented writers serve to demystify the symptoms and treatment options.
Nutrition: Perhaps no topic is more littered with misinformation than nutrition. Wellnicity’s certified nutritionists and expert journalists cut through the clutter to deliver news, information and advice designed to improve overall diet.
Stress Relief: Everyone deals with stress in some form, but we all respond to it in different ways. Wellnicity visitors learn the best stress coping mechanisms and ways to prevent this potentially deadly force from ruling their lives through articles and advice provided by our team of writers, certified life coaches, massage therapists, and holistic practitioners.
Two additional key components of Wellnicity are our extensive calendar focused on health and wellness oriented events in the Houston area and the directory featuring skilled and talented professionals in a host of categories, such as doctors, dentists, massage therapists, physical therapists and holistic practitioners.
Worksite Wellness: A company’s workforce is its life blood and research shows that healthy employees are happier and more productive, so we provide the tools to help business owners and managers implement effective, company-wide programs to improve health and, quite possibly, boost the bottom line.
Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer diagnosed in American women. And although it’s more rare, men can develop breast cancer, too. Fortunately, eating a healthy and balanced diet (especially high in fruits and vegetables), exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption may all lower your risk of developing breast cancer.
This week, evaluate your current breast cancer prevention practices and check to see when your next screening should be. If you’re between the ages of 50 and 74, you should have a mammogram once every 2 years. If outside of this age range, talk with your physician about your risk factors and when you should get screened for breast cancer.READ MORE
