There’s a lot of hype in wellness.

This Substack is an extension of my work with the Conspirituality Podcast, as well as a place to work out ideas for an upcoming book on the topic of Trickle-Down Wellness.

I’ve been involved in the wellness industry since the late nineties, working in a variety of capacities. I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about this industry as I’ve watched it grow from small trade shows to a multibillion dollar beast.

When you’re talking about that type of money, some things will be compromised.

I don’t only look at problems, though I do believe that only by identifying the problem can you work toward a solution. In that light, these weekly articles investigate the false promises and potential benefits of a variety of practices.
