My Passion: Ending the Misinformation and Providing Information on High-Quality Dietary Supplements

I am 26 years old and I have a B.S. in Alternative and Complementary Medicine from Everglades University. I live in North Carolina with my wonderful wife Tori. I have been using WA for over two years now because of the training and the community.

Natural medicine and natural supplementation are on the rise and there are a lot of hoaxes and a lot of wonderful products. I would love to spread my training and knowledge to help people make better decisions about natural medicine. That's what my main website is all about!

Here's the main issue: "Natural medicine" is an empty term. Kind of like saying "all people" or the word "cloud." Without a whole lot of context, it has no real definitive meaning. My website focuses on something about which I really care. Finding people the best natural dietary supplements. As it turns out, people are not really that interested in what I have to say so far but I am not going to give up trying to get my website out there and get people to come to it.

I tried making websites using Wealthy Affiliate February 2015 at a time when I was extremely busy with school AND was working 12-hour shifts every night.

I am glad to have the background from the last couple years with WA because at first Wealthy Affiliate can be quite overwhelming; not because it isn't well organized but because it has SO MUCH TO OFFER!

Anyway, I am glad to be back and I missed it! There's a nice atmosphere and a great culture here. Message me anytime. :)

Checked out your site. Really like its minimalist style and so much authoritative information. I was not able to see how you have monetized your site. There really should be more calls to action and I don't see you building a mailing list.

I never bothered with a multi-vitamin because I new most were added to the sewer. Your explanation of the various kinds of vitamins is fascinating. If you have a mailing list, I want to join.

I have added a mailing list. If I knew how to link it here I would, but I'm pretty new to all this. https://Sternhealing.com It's on the right side when you scroll down.

Do you have a recommendation for a call to action plugin? I just want it to be very simple and clean and not open up any new pages.

Hello Hamfast14. I liked reading your profile I have an extreme interest in Holistic Health myself. I haven't went back to school or anything, but I was thinking of researching the possibilities of this for a second career. I noticed you posted a question regarding your website, I thought I would follow you here.

Awesome Randy, thank you for following me. Right now natural medicine and alternative healthcare is becoming VERY popular because of all the uncertainty with health insurance and (about time) the legitimate studies that are being funded for it!

If you have any questions about pursuing a career in it, I'd be happy to help. There are accredited online schools that offer degrees in natural medicine but also you can self teach and skip the degree. I"m here to help so let me know if I can! :D

Hello James,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

James, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything James.

Hey Kyle, I had to take a break for a while because life became very busy. Now that things have slowed down, I have signed up again and I have actually ran into a bit of a roadblock. I am trying to switch my Blogger website to be on WA. I switched the DNS and deleted it from Blogger but when I click to log into the website from WA, it will not open. I am grateful for your program btw, thank you for making this website.

Kyle Premium
Do you copy all of the content over. The DNS switch simply switches your domain to point to somewhere else, you have to manually upload your website to the new location (here) after this has taken place.

You might want to point it back if you have not backed up your content.

It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

If you need any further help, let me know.

Hello James! I am so excited... another knowledgeable herbologist. Lovely. Will your website be addressing your hard earned foundation in natural healing, herbs, tinctures, etc?

I was fanatical about not using any drugs when i was pregnant with my five children. Over the years I learned so much in how to care for their needs. I felt I gave them the very best start in life.

I'm looking forward to what you will creatively bubble to the surface.

Hi

Thank you for the follow.

There are quite a number of Herbal remedy type sites but with your active knowledge and training you could carve
out a niche for yourself (No pun intended).

I have never quite understood the term alternative medicine with regard to herbalism. Where do people think modern medicine derived from and herbs are used in every day "Normal" medicine?

I also hate the term natural as natural does not = safe

Conium maculatum anyone.=?

I truly wish you every success and if any of us in the community can assist drop by with your questions.

All the best

Dave

hamfast14 Premium
Thank you. I hope this niche will work out. If not, I'm happy to do another!
Exactly, natural absolutely does not mean safe as a lot of people assume. It's difficult, though, because there is an abundance of misinformation out there about natural products.
Reply
Caraid Premium
You could always break your niche down to remedies for particular types of conditions or tisanes etc.

Perhaps concentrate on 1 site for now but add to this in the future. As this is really your knowledge area you probably might find it easier to have more than 1 related site than most.

I am interested in herbs but mostly cultivating for culinary use for flavouring as for health reasons I often have a very restricted diet.

I would be interested to see how you get along.

Hi James and thanks for the follow.My site, the beginnings of which will be up today and is basically an Alternative New Age site. Maybe down the track we can help one another. I have people who could very possibly be interested in what you do. Herbal medicine can run in tandem with many other healing modalities.

Hey James and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you James, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
