For exclusive Health Related content.
At Anxiety, our primary goal is to educate people by providing science-based information on a variety of health-related topics in easy-to-understand language.
Our commitment to improving the well-being of people in the U.S. and around the world carries with it an important responsibility to report on health-related issues.
As a result, our content is produced exclusively by professional journalists and medical writers, including MDs, ODs, RNs, and other experts recognized in their respective fields. However, recognizing that occasional errors are inevitable, we have established a board of medical advisors and fact checkers to carefully review our content. This process ensures that everything we publish is accurate, clear, based on scientific evidence, and reflects the latest research.
In every piece of content we produce, accuracy is our top priority, and we adhere strictly to our editorial guidelines, which are designed to maintain the integrity and impartiality of our organization.
While we provide health-related information from leading experts, we do not intend to replace medical care. Instead, we strongly encourage our readers to seek professional help for any health concerns they may have.
Editorial integrity and independence
The editors, contributors, and medical advisory board value freedom of expression and are firmly committed to independent, ethical, and unbiased journalism. As a result, our content remains uninfluenced by any academic, business, or political affiliation.
We strictly refrain from subjecting our content to any third-party pre-publication review or approval process, and our writers never accept gifts, payments, free travel, or other benefits in exchange for favorable coverage. Any potential or existing conflicts of interest or relationships, whether financial, professional, personal, or otherwise, are openly disclosed to our readers in every publication.
