About Be Well World

Welcome to Be Well World, an online resource for Physical, Mental & Spiritual Health with 1,000+ pages of original content written by over 100 holistic health professionals.  What you'll find here is not one voice, but many.

Demystifying the modalities of holistic health practitioners is the hope.  Empowering the public in their own wellness is the intent. 

We host a Directory of Holistic Practitioners, which in 2016 has been opened up as a free resource for Practitioners offering holistic health services (see the link at the bottom of the Find Practitioners page).  The public is able to search for local practitioners.  While we have hundreds of participating practitioners, we have much more geography to fill in (thank you for helping spread the word).

Be Well World was humbly founded in June of 2009 by a small group of practitioners in Frederick, Maryland.  They envisioned a community to build practitioner connections and undertake public education of holistic health modalities. 

So started Be Well Frederick as a quarterly print publication. Enthusiastic response saw more editions appear and 83,000 quarterly copies were printed and delivered to over 3,000 locations in the Baltimore-Washington area. 

At the end of 2014, publisher Tim Brady, exhausted from the six years of this loving work, ceased printing operations (some say he read one of his articles on work-life balance).  A year off saw him move to Sarasota, Florida, rescue two abused Cavalier King Charles puppies, meet his wife, Regina, and buy a small house just a bike ride from Siesta Key's beaches. 

Tim re-opened Be Well World in 2016 to more Content Submissions (also no-cost - Be Well World is now supported by the online Display Advertising) and re-launched Guided Star Consulting, the marketing consultancy that gave birth to the original practitioner consortium.  Tim and associates through Guided Star now specialize in assisting Holistic Practitioners market themselves.

Namaste! Tim and everyone at Guided Star, Be Well World, and the Practitioner Communities
