    Fashionably Unwell – The Dark Side of America's "Wellness" Industry

    Join Dr. Danielle Belardo and her expert of the week, journalist, author, and former wellness addict, Rina Raphael. After personally falling victim to commodified wellness, Rina has dedicated her career to unveiling the truth behind this "un-well" industry. On this episode, Danielle and Rina delve into the variables that have steered society into adopting "quick fixes" through fashionable wellness trends and why we shouldn’t feel bad about falling for them. Tune in for unique insight, perspective, and realness surrounding wellness that might have you thinking twice about your next self-care investment.

    The dangerous lack of scientific evidence pertaining to commodified wellness  

    Marketing, well-funded messaging and its powerful nature  

    Why people lean towards alternative ways of healing and our flawed medical system  

    The importance of assurance when it comes to our health and how health "gurus" falsely sell assurance  

    How women, rather than men, are frequently targeted in the wellness space through scare tactics 

    Wellness mania and why it’s considered hyper-American  

    The ways in which we treat wellness as if it were fashion, and why this is so problematic 

      
    Rina Raphael is a health, wellness, technology, and women’s issues journalist. She’s made a name for herself in the media world, having served as a wellness industry reporter for Fast Company magazine before contributing to publications such as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Men's Health, among others. Her new book, The Gospel of Wellness: Gyms, Gurus, Goop, and the False Promise of Self Care, provides an inside look at the boom of the wellness industry, its seductive marketing, and why we’re all falling victim to it.
