Help launch a natural health and wellness website that will provide education, tools and resources to allow our aging population to live in a state of optimal health. Donate in Exchange for Ad Space option.

I have launched a health and wellness website to provide education and tools for our aging population to live a more natural life. The site is be directed toward baby boomers and caretakers who provide care for adults of any age, but contains valuable health information for people of any age.

I spent two months designing the site and now I am working on building content and spreading the word.

Inspiration

  1. I have been involved with seniors my entire working life, first as an elder law paralegal and now as a yoga instructor in adult foster homes. Working with this population brings me complete gratitude. I have had a number of experiences in both capacities when I wanted to offer a natural therapy, yet found myself biting my tongue instead of speaking out about alternatives to Western medicine.
  2. My parents, aunts, uncles and all of their friends are at or approaching retirement age and I am becoming more concerned about their health and wellness.
  3. The current state of “health care” (more appropriately called ”sick care”) in the United States is at best, uncertain.

These three factors are motivating me to support our aging population in living in a state of optimal health.

Being proactive is an essential component to this and in order to be proactive people need great resources, which I intend to provide.

My Background

I have studied health and nutrition since high school. While it was initially simply an “interest,” it has since then become my career.

A few years ago I became very sick both physically and mentally. I was confined to my bed for two months and found no relief or support from my Western medical doctors.

From this broken place, I was introduced to the holistic healing system of India, called Ayurveda, a sister science to yoga (literally translated as "the wisdom of life". Through it's practices I was able to not only heal, but became healthier in my mind, body and spirit than I had ever been in my life.

My experience was so profound that I started a holistic health practice to share my knowledge. I have a blog on the website for my practice, and have been ghostwriting blog posts for another health coach for the past year. I love writing and spreading my knowledge to others. To find out more about me visit my holistic health practice website here.

What I Need to Launch

The estimated launch date is June 2014. I have several articles written and six months worth of article ideas drafted. Once the site is launched, I plan to publish articles at least two times per week and send out bi-weekly newsletters.

To complete the launch of the website, I need funds for the following start-up costs:

  • Website design
  • Logo and branding
  • Recipe and meal plan development
  • Adobe Acrobat Pro software
  • Email hosting subscription service
  • Stock photos
  • Advertising

Initially the website will have:

  • Healthy recipes
  • Natural health articles (i.e. natural pain relievers, dry skin remedies, food and herbs for certain health imbalances, etc.)
  • Nutritional articles
  • Formulas for natural cleaning products for the home
  • Guest posts from elder law attorneys and financial planners about healthy money management
  • An online “shop” where I will have products that I personally recommend
  • Senior moments – a place for readers to share their heartwarming stories of working with seniors (which is how I anticipate readership will grow quickly)

As the site grows I would like to offer downloadable meal plans, e-books, e-courses, online yoga classes and a phone app. (My 95 year old grandpa loves his iPad!)
