Nice to see you back here for Part 2 of the 20 health websites everyone should bookmark. In case you missed Part 1, here it is…
Did you check out any of the websites in Part 1? What did you think? Did you learn anything new? Oooh did you find a new favorite?
I won’t hold you up any further from the remaining recommended websites, so here they are!!!!
WVE is a non-profit organization with a mission to eliminate the toxic chemicals that harm our health and communities. They have gone up against companies like Proctor & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, and Clorox tackling issues like feminine care products and the Brazilian Blowout. They have non-toxic DIY recipes, non toxic shopping guides, monthly tips on how to avoid toxic chemicals and so much more.
I am a part of their business network due to the great work they do. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a non-profit group that stems from the Breast Cancer Fund (a non-profit organization that helps to expose & eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer). The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics educates the public about the toxic chemicals found in cosmetics and personal care products. Because of their efforts, hundreds of cosmetic companies now fully disclose their product ingredients and avoid the use of cancer-causing chemicals. They have a lot of helpful ways to stay informed and spread the word.
The NAHA website was the basis for my post on the term therapeutic grade regarding essential oils. Their mission is simple: to advance the knowledge of the medicinal use of aromatic plants and essential oils and to support aromatherapy as a truly holistic professional art and science. If you really want to educate yourself on aromatherapy this is a great place to start. They have articles, books, essential oil safety information, as well as a list of approved schools for those interested in exploring aromatherapy a little more.
14. PBS Kids
We can’t forget about the kids! This website is very kid-friendly, I mean it should be…it’s PBS Kids! PBS joined forces with Whole Foods Market to give you recipes, games, and other activities that are good for the whole family and to encourage healthy eating habits.
Another great website for healthy kids and families. This website was started by two moms that have a passion for healthy living. They offer up recipes, articles, subscription meal plans, books and more. I love their recipes and if I had the time I would pin them ALL on my Healthy Kids Pinterest board!
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization that offers third party verification and labeling for non-GMO (genetically modified organism) food and products. They believe that everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified organisms and they work to educate consumers and the food industry about GMOs and their impact on our health and food systems. The website has a running list of products that have been verified as well as how their verification process works.
17. Dr. Weil
Dr. Andrew Weil is a medical doctor that has become best known for his books and involvement in integrative medicine. He takes a healing oriented approach to healthcare that takes mind, body, and spirit into consideration. He offers everything from recipes and wellness guides to advice on spirituality, supplements, herbs, and even gardening.
The home page alone makes me want to go there now and just meditate. The Chopra Center is located in California and was founded by doctors Deepak Chopra and David Simon. Deepak Chopra is a well renowned medical doctor and author that believes health is a lively state of balance and integration of body, mind and spirit. David Simon is also a medical doctor, author and advocate of mind-body medicine.

Upon starting this blog, I became a part of the Healthy Child, Healthy World blogger network. This is a non-profit organization that was started by a couple who lost their only child to a rare disease. From that experience, they knew they needed to inspire parents to protect children against harmful chemicals. They provide educational resources so parents and caregivers can make informed decisions to protect the health and development of our children. In October 2014, they merged with the Environmental Working Group to become an even bigger voice. You can find videos, books, healthy shopping guides, a parenting kit, and more on their website.
