Our Heritage

Industry Leaders in Natural Health for 25 Years

  • 1991

    Phillips Publishing Introduces First Alternative Health Newsletters
    Our business originated in the newsletter division of Phillips Publishing International more than two decades ago with the launch of our flagship healthy newsletter, Dr. Julian Whitaker’s Health & Healing, followed quickly by Dr. David Williams’ Alternatives for the Health Conscious Individual.
    Our alternative health advice struck a nerve with a growing population of readers who were frustrated… tired of being failed by conventional medicine… tired of struggling with health conditions that no doctor could solve… of being churned in and out of doctors’ offices with nothing more than a hastily scribbled prescription. Readers looking to take back control of their health and gain access to alternatives for true, natural healing.

  • 1993

    Supplement Company Founded; First Doctor-Developed Formula Launches
    When our eager newsletter readers began calling to find out where they could buy the nutritional products recommended by our doctors, we helped point them to the safest, most reliable sources we could find. And then we had to hire more and more people to answer the phones, because the calls kept coming. Letters poured in. Readers were desperate for guidance and help. Can I take this with that? How much is too much? How can I be sure my supplements are safe?
    And that’s when the light dawned. People needed a safe, secure source of doctor-developed supplements they could rely on to improve their health.
    Just as we’d sought out the world’s best health experts for guidance, we began to seek out the finest raw material suppliers, the highest-quality manufacturers, leading biochemists. We partnered with our doctors to turn their research and clinical experience into safe, effective nutritional supplements. And then we started delivering them straight to you.

  • 1999

    Our Family of Doctors Grows...and Goes Online
    Between 1995 and 1999, new doctors continued to join the Phillips family, including integrative cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra.
    As more and more health-conscious readers discovered the fresh perspective and valuable advice our doctors could bring, we expanded beyond print newsletters and catalogs and merged onto the Information Superhighway, launching a website for each of our health advisors as a platform to help get their messages out.

  • 2004

    Healthy Directions Is Born
    In 2004, the Phillips business was officially renamed Healthy Directions. HealthyDirections.com soon became a destination site for provocative, doctor-developed health content on a wide variety of health conditions, and a trusted source of high-quality nutritional supplements.

  • 2012

    World-Class Medical Experts Flock to Healthy Directions
    A deep commitment to quality and innovation makes Healthy Directions the top choice for some of America’s most recognized doctors. In 2012, we introduced pain expert Dr. Joseph Pergolizzi (named one of 2012’s Most Compassionate Doctors). And we discovered one of the world’s leading researchers on sleep-inducing melatonin—Harvard doctor and MIT researcher Richard Wurtman—and brought his revolutionary dual-delivery Sleep Answer to thousands of formerly sleep-deprived Americans.

  • 2013

    Healthy Directions Wins the Coveted Nutrition Business Journal’s Management Achievement Award for Excellence…
    And joins the industry-leading Council for Responsible Nutrition, whose Code of Ethics holds member companies to the highest standards for quality and integrity.

  • 2016

    Naturopathy
    Our family of natural health experts continues to grow, expanding to include naturopath Dr. Drew Sinatra.

  • Today
