Here at Why Am I Unhealthy we’re committed to and take great pleasure in helping people become the healthiest version of themselves.
The following websites are some of my favorite healthy living resources which are also dedicated to doing just that…
Taking the time to research, analyze and interpret information so YOU may in turn, learn, benefit and thrive – while spreading your new-found knowledge by way of exemplary habits and informed skepticism.
Whether you’re trying to live forever, trim that waistline before the holidays or cure a nagging ailment, these 20 websites have got you covered from A to Z.
With such a complex industry it can be difficult to stay on top of all the current trends, research and findings related to your health and well-being.
Thankfully there are good natured, determined individuals and organizations removing the guesswork and frustration associated with the constant expedition of staying physically, mentally and spiritually healthy.
It really is to hard to rank such great websites, so I recommend you bookmark all of them and make sure to visit as often as they deserve :D
Here we go, my 20 favorite health websites;
This is definitely one of the websites that we make it a point to visit each day first thing in the morning as MBG relies on user generated content (experience is the purest form of knowledge in our opinion), offers unusually approachable news, articles, applicable tips, and interviews around holistic health for the everyday consumer.
Mind Body Green was started by Jason Wachob a couple years back when, as he puts it, the last thing I ever thought I’d be into was yoga.
Apparently, when a 100,000 plus airline mile year of corporate travel wreaked havoc on the sciatic nerve in his back, he turned to the ancient practice to avoid surgery. With his body physically transformed and newly convinced of the all around benefits of taking care of one’s body, Wachob launched MindBodyGreen to spread the word.
MBG was able to grow monthly unique visitors from 100,000 to 1.3 million relatively quickly and is a direct result of expanding beyond the hardcore demographics to engage a more mainstream audience.
Also, covering certain aspects of the wellness lifestyle such as yoga, green living and spirituality equally has been well received by regular users.
If you’re sensitive to gluten but love a good pizza pie then you’ll love this stuffed crust favorite!
Dr. Joseph Mercola is an osteopathic physician, also known as a DO. DOs are licensed physicians who, similar to MDs, can prescribe medication and perform surgery in all 50 states. DOs and MDs have similar training requiring four years of study in the basic and clinical sciences, and the successful completion of licensing exams. But DOs bring something extra to the practice of medicine.
Osteopathic physicians practice a “whole person” approach, treating the entire person rather than just symptoms. And it’s because of this fact that they made the list and it’s articles like 9 body hacks to naturally increase testosterone that keep bringing us back.
3. Natural news
We frequent The NaturalNews Network and for good reason, they are a non-profit collection of public education websites covering topics that empower individuals to make positive changes in their health, environmental sensitivity, consumer choices and informed skepticism.
Natural News offers thousands of articles and dozens of downloadable reports like the Honest Food Guide that are designed to educate and empower individuals, families and communities so that they may experience improved health, awareness and life fulfillment.
The World Health Organization estimates that about 121 million people worldwide have some form of depression, although less than 25 percent have access to effective treatment. Turmeric, native to South Asia is believed by some to be more effective than anti-depressants which is why we found this article particular attractive.
Marks Daily Apple founder Mark Sisson launched the website back in 2006 in order to, as he puts it, “empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness.”
5. Paleo Hacks
Essentially, if you’ve got Paleo related questions, their community has answers. The site is very user friendly and makes it easy for you to get involved.
Then there’s the PaleoHacks Podcast, which is their weekly podcast hosted by Clark Danger. Clark brings on popular Paleo experts, authors, and others to talk about trending Paleo topics and answers questions for the entire community. It’s a great show.
Here’s an amazing yet informative thread we found on the love of junk food and Paleo.
Known as a natural healing resource center, All-Natural.com provides users with simple yet efficient methods of healing and enhancing our minds, body and spirit through clean eating and informed lifestyle choices.
Whether you’re eating for beauty or searching for your divine self, All-Natural has you covered. We especially appreciated this Guide to Nutritional and Herbal Remedies and this Philosophy of Natural Healing.
7. Longe City
“Advocacy and research for indefinite lifespans.” This is the first thing you see when you visit LongeCity.com
This website focuses the majority of its efforts and resources on researching and ultimately enhancing mental acuity and anti aging properties of ones existence.
This is a friendly community, one of which offers a great deal of resources and certainly provides the user with a unique experience, to say the least.
We thought this was a very interesting discussion on Surviving The Gap – The Cost Of Immortality. Makes you wonder, right?
8. Cure Zone
Curezone.com is a helpful forum that’s all about educating instead of medicating as their website header puts it. They have a popular feature known as Ailment and Illness – Prevention & Curing Protocols which can be found on this page. Many people find this to be a useful and friendly community which is why they have thousands of active users each and every day.
9. Life Hack
This site is dedicated to lifehacks, which is a phrase describing any advice, resource, tip or trick helping you get things done more efficiently and effectively.
While LifeHack.com isn’t exclusively a natural health website, it makes the list because it’s a great source for tips to help improve all aspects of your life. They’re widely recognized as one of the premier productivity and healthy lifestyle blogs on the web.

Phil Drolet’s (founder of The Feel Good Lifestyle) deepest belief is that “there is greatness inside all of us and to access it, we must align ourselves with a greater purpose, commit to excellence, and seek to improve every day.”
According to Phil, he hit a low point in his life when he quit his corporate job and didn’t get into grad school.
Deep inside, Phil knew that he had a lot to offer just hadn’t the slightest idea how to go about it.
He decided to travel to the other side of the world and live there for 18 months in order to gain clarity and purpose on where he stands in this world. It’s safe to say Phil and the Feel Good Lifestyle team feel that they are here to experiment with, live and teach the principles of Optimal Living in order to help and inspire others to step into their greatness, become the best version of themselves, and make big things happen in the world.

13. Food Babe
Vani is the Food Babe and is all about helping you get the healthy body that you want. Vani’s philosophy is simple, which is why we like her, “you’ve got to know your food in order to conquer your health.”
The Food Babe says she’s most knowledgeable about the harmful ingredients in processed foods and how to avoid them. For this reason, she has made it her mission to spread as much information possible about what’s in food, how to make the right purchasing decisions at the supermarket and how to live an organic lifestyle in this over-processed world.
Recently, while perusing the food babes website, we came across this interesting article she wrote describing a rather large list of non-organic foods that are allegedly approved and readily available inside what is believed to be (some) organic foods.
