Experts & Contributors

It takes a village to produce a blog – well, one that you can trust anyway. So, let us introduce you to who is writing on this site – and who’s making sure that what they say is accurate!

Main Author and Editor

I’m Helen Foster, a journalist and published author in the wellness field. I have over 20 years of experience in health and wellness writing for publications such as Women’s Health, Reader’s Digest, Good Health at the Daily Mail, and many, many more. I have also written 17 books on nutrition and health for major publishers including Random House, Octopus, and Aster, and sold over a million books.

I am a member of the UK Guild of Health Writers and the Australasian Medical Writers Association.

Pretty much everything on this blog is written by me. When I do use another writer everything is double-checked and edited by me.

A lot of the posts on The Wellness Nerd are about crunching numbers, but, when I do write something that strays more into giving other advice it’s important that it’s accurate and, there are a couple of ways to do that.

Fact Checkers

These are independent experts who read over the posts to confirm that what’s in them is accurate.
