Our Review Process
“With rapid advancements in the world of health and fitness, you no longer have to rely on redundant techniques, outdated information or overpriced supplements to reach your fitness goal. Sadly, the internet is full of just that.
Let us, at the healthy remedies help you with the best, most pragmatic information that allows you to make better decisions about everything from food to supplements to exercise.”
Right from eating a precise number of calories, to ensuring that macronutrient ratios are met, to lifting weights with perfect form and supplementing with the best supplements that optimize you for peak performance, fitness is a science.
There’s no one in the whole wide world, who wouldn’t want to be and feel like the best version of themselves.
Agile, active, aesthetic, ripped, fast, injury-free. But there is only a handful who make the right choices, that allow them to achieve these goals.
That’s where we step in.
We strive to provide our readers with quality information that matters and empowers them to make the right decisions about their health, every time. No matter what your goal or your current physical conditioning, we always give you the best advice for your situation.
Does searching for fitness tips or exercise information overwhelm you?
Did you get buried under tons of redundant info laced with a generous amount of bro-science?
Bogus claims? Unverified facts ?
We understand that there’s a serious need for clear, concise, and actionable fitness and nutrition advice that’s backed by science.
Advice is written by experts who have the credentials and the skills to vet the information before its published.
Advice that’s handpicked and dissected into bite-sized chunks for your easy understanding.
Advice that motivates you to take action and change your current predicament, rather than scaring you off with arcane terms and scientific gobbledygook.
That’s exactly what you will receive. Welcome to the healthy remedies.
We go to great lengths to ensure that every word that you read on our website is vetted and based on scientific facts. Here’s a brief glimpse into our editorial process.
Experts From Varied Disciplines In Our Content Team
We don’t hire writers at all. Instead, we hire the best experts from varied disciplines to get the information we need and then curate it to come up with a readable, but factual article.
From certified personal trainers to Chiropractors to doctors, our team of experts has the skills, the knowledge and the credentials needed to provide you with verified and unbiased information.
The next tier is our highly-qualified (but incredibly busy! Ugh!) editorial team, that oversees the work produced by the writing team.
Each article is passed around from one subject matter expert to the other until we can vet, verify, and ensure that it is accurate, updated, easy to understand, helpful, and inclusive.
The Review Board
The healthy remedies review board is at the core of our organization. It comprises of an eclectic team of registered nutritionists, certified personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, board-certified physicians and more.
Whenever we have to review any product or work on a content piece that contains a medical or scientific fact, or a health claim, our review team vets the information. This ensures that our information is factual, updated, and accurate.
How Does This Work ?
A content piece is first assigned to a reviewer whose area of expertise matches the topic. This reviewer will verify the piece, cross reference it with research, double check the facts, and ensure that it reflects only the most recent, evidence-based information. That’s the standard procedure for every content piece that we produce. Be it in an article, a product review, a video, or a podcast.
If they suggest any improvements or spot an incorrect piece of information, it is passed on to the editorial team, who address the suggestions and make the necessary changes immediately.
The article is then sent back to the reviewer, who will recheck it and then approve it for publishing. Only when we receive the final approval do we officially verify and stamp it.
The Fact Checking Team
As if the two tiers of scrutiny that we subject every article too, wasn’t enough, we have a separate team for fact checking and verification. For a lot of brands, this is an added expense. But for us, it is a critical step that’s in sync with our goals and mission.
Our team of fact-checkers checks and verify medical statements, health facts, and other recommendations. Both accuracy and recentness is checked and cross verified with peer-reviewed medical journals and other scientific literature published by academic institutions and government organizations. Wherever possible, we list the sources inline and also, at the bottom of every article.
They do this all day and they are tireless.
References, Sources, and Citations
When it comes to medical statements and claims, there’s no room for mediocracy or half-baked facts. There’s definitely no room for broad-brush statements or catchall phrases. So, we scrutinize every bit of information and we do it repeatedly until it’s verified.
If it’s a clinical trial, we want to know whether it was a double-blind, placebo-controlled one, with a citation to back it up with.
If it’s an animal model study, we want to know the exact doses that were administered to the animals and the duration. We then try to replicate the human equivalent doses and publish them for reference.
If it’s in-vitro, we want to know why the study was abandoned or when it will progress to in-vivo and subsequently, to humans.
Our primary sources are peer-reviewed medical journals. Even if it’s an old, archival study, we will dig it up.
Additionally, we may also look for information with academia and advocacy associations. In rare cases, we may also refer to statements released by governmental organizations, such as the CDC.
the healthy remedies primarily looks to source information based on proven treatments and human trials. However, in some rare scenarios, we are open to exploring alternative treatments and therapies, if the information about a product is limited to that.
Updated and Current
At the rate at which healthcare is progressing, there’s a very real possibility that information can be outdated in just years. Why we recently reviewed a piece of information in an article that was written just months ago and found that it was no longer relevant.
That’s why we do a periodical sweep of all the existing content on our website and review it to ensure that any outdated information is removed. The entire editorial process is repeated so that the information is based on the most current research and statistics.
If required, we don’t hesitate to rework or re-edit the entire article, even if it means that it has to be re-certified by our review board.
That said, we are only human. If in the extremely rare event, that you happen to discover an outdated piece of information or any inconsistency as such, then do reach out to us.
The Healthy Remedies Mission
The definition of fitness as we know it is changing.
We are part of a revolution that’s changing the focus from bulging biceps to a functional core and back, and it can’t get any better. That’s been our goal since the day of our inception.
Each day, we strive to infuse this goal of ours into every bit of information that we publish. Articles, advice, reviews, recommendations, comments, videos, podcasts, everything is created with just one goal.
‘To allow you to become a better, enhanced version of yourself, so that it lets you lead happier, fulfilling lives’.
A life that is free of voguish trends and culture-driven nonsense amplified by the current weight-phobic media.
At the healthy remedies, we strive to help you look beyond the ripped physiques and unrealistic expectations.
We let you become a better you.
We hope that you enjoy reading our content as much as we take joy in preparing it for you.
