Healthy Directions – Why Work For Us?


Our Story

Our business originated in the newsletter division of Phillips Publishing International (PPI) more than two decades ago.

In 1985, PPI began expanding its newsletter offerings to include natural health–related titles that featured advice from alternative medicine doctors. These included the 1991 launch of our flagship letter, Dr. Julian Whitaker’s Health & Healing, and the acquisition of Mountain Home Publishing and the newsletter Alternatives, both owned by Dr. David Williams.

The health advice was well-received, and readers began calling to find out where they could buy the nutritional products recommended by our physician editors. We helped point them to safe, appropriate sources, and then began working with the doctors to formulate their own supplements.

The rest, as they say, is history.

In 2004, the business was sold and officially rebranded as Healthy Directions. Today we are proud to be a leading health publisher and direct-to-consumer retailer of doctor-formulated nutritional supplements and skincare products, dedicated to helping people lead healthier, happier lives. Healthy Directions provides expert guidance and advanced nutritional supplements from America’s most knowledgeable and highly respected integrative and alternative health doctors includingJulian Whitaker, MD, Dr. David Williams, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, MD, Dr. Aaron Tabor, MD, Dr. Richard Wurtman, MD, Dr. Joseph Pergolizzi, Jr., MD, Dr.Daniel Amen, Dr. Yan Ping Xu, Dr. Luigi Polla, and Dr. Drew Sinatra.

    Pros

    The people here work hard and get along well with each other. The company has a positive reputation in the industry and the products are known for being very high quality. There have been a lot of new employee benefits since becoming part of a larger company, especially ones that support the mission around health and wellness. All in all it's a great place to come to work each day.

    Cons

    It is a complicated business with a lot of products and programs to manage, which can lead to too much time spent in the details vs. big picture.
