About

Mission Statement

The NWPH’s aim is to educate people on modern health issues, with a focus on science and medical expertise. We live in an age where everyone Googles a question but is then confused when they receive contradicting answers.

Our mission is to take readers back to science, back to medical opinion from doctors and nurses, so that they can make an informed decision about their health. We not only provide information on medical conditions and diseases but also products being advertised as medical-grade or herbal remedies. 

We want to empower the average person with accurate and well-researched medical facts so that they can communicate better with their family physician. Our reviews and articles are up to date, referenced, and based on advice and quotes from medical professionals.

About Us

We are a group of researchers, writers, scientists, doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals that share a passion for health and recovery, and for sharing responsible and researched information. 

We have several team members who write on specific medical issues and healthcare niches, ensuring our knowledge database is easy to read and easy to share with a doctor later on. By understanding the basics of health, and communicating with your doctor and nurse about symptoms and therapies, you will be in a better position to improve your health and daily living.

Professional writers and researchers usually come from a medical background and have advanced degrees in a related field. Content written by writers or researchers is edited by medical professionals for accuracy and up to date information. 

Licensed doctors and nurses will also share their advice on essential issues and you can check their credentials by name. We believe in transparent reporting and working with your local medical community rather than dispensing unverified online advice. 

Why Follow Us?

  • Because you want accurate information and not guesswork
  • Because it really does matter what doctors and nurses say, as opposed to some random person on Facebook
  • Because a lot of false or exaggerated information is being spread about medical conditions and it’s important to know the truth
  • Because many online medical or herbal products are scams and do not work as advertised – readers need honest and unbiased reviews!
