The Dark Side of the Wellness Industry Exposed?
Alex Reid here with your first Monday roundup of 2020.
Some think the wellness industry is crooked. They think it’s become a circus of selling you a miracle — a pipe dream.
Fact is, people have goals. Everyone wants to be healthy and happy. That’s why it’s my pleasure to share interesting, fact-based research with you!
Not to my surprise, “diet” and “exercise” are already some of the biggest health buzzwords of 2020.
This leaves many with questions. Which diet is the best to follow? How much should I really exercise per day? Will these decisions help with weight loss and better overall health?
The questions are ENDLESS...
Truth is, new discoveries are made every day that could influence the decisions we make for our health.
Just recently, a review in the British Journal of Sports Medicine concluded:
Any amount of running, even just once a week, is better than no running, but higher doses of running may not necessarily be associated with greater mortality benefits.
And the concept of “wellness,” this thing so many grasp for, has really caught fire over the past decade.
The Guardian recently reported:
The modern iteration of “wellness” — defined, at least in part, by the need to purchase something to have it — piggybacks on the multibillion-dollar diet, supplement and fitness industry.
The Guardian also suggests that true wellness may be a lot less convoluted than mainstream wellness media would have you believe.
I admit, with any line of business there may be those who are more motivated by money than by the cause.
And frankly, that’s why I created Clear Health Now. We believe in using fact-based knowledge so you can make the most informed decision for yourself.
I’m not a doctor.
I am a man with a passion for breakthrough science-backed research.
And I am fortunate enough to surround myself with some of the greatest doctors, scientists, and PhDs around who aren’t afraid to buck trends and speak the truth!
I was intrigued by this read. Give it a look for yourself.
Back to fitness...
Your mind, body, and emotional health are all intertwined.
A recent Mayo Clinic study suggests that cardio-respiratory exercise is great for your brain’s health. According to the research:
Brain tissue is made up of gray matter, or cell bodies, and filaments, called white matter, that extend from the cells. The volume of gray matter appears to correlate with various skills and cognitive abilities. The researchers found that increases in peak oxygen uptake were strongly associated with increased gray matter volume.
Find out why this very recent study connects exercise to your brain's gray matter.

Big Pharma celebrates the new year by raising prices on over 250 drugs. If you’ve been following along, I’m sure you know how much this makes my teeth grind.
But again, that’s why I’m here to shed light on healthy alternatives that folks have used to get positive results.
