In today’s world, wellness can be a very broad term. On its most basic level, it’s about making a conscious effort to attain health in both body and mind. But with so many diets, exercise options, and self-care alternatives, we can often feel overwhelmed with information.

That’s why Jess Waller—formerly of the creative community MakeTribe—developed WellTribe, a hub for women’s holistic health with the goal of creating a community dedicated to self-discovery and better living through nutrition and self-care.

Starting this month, Waller, a certified nutrition specialist with training in Western and herbal medicine, will be sending out a bimonthly WellTribe newsletter called “Tell Me Everything” in which she’ll address three subjects that people are always striving to improve: sleep, sex, and skin.

“All three of those areas I think can be treated through lifestyle change in food and behavior modifications,” says Waller. “Everybody has so much on their plates, but paying attention to your mental and physical health comes from self-discovery, and I think that also stems from being connected to a larger community outside of yourself.”

The newsletter will also contain a roundup of evidence-based research, as well as a curated selection of healing products and deep dives into hot topic ingredients. “There are no blanket treatment options,” says Waller, who also does nutrition consultations in Woodberry. “We all have bio-individuality. We are all different, and you sometimes have to dig down deeper to find the root cause of what could be causing us certain ailments.”

WellTribe also hopes to host mini-workshops and pop-up information sessions around the city with health specialists to bring together like-minded people who are looking to share their stories and connect.

“I just want it to be a space where people can support each other and support themselves,” explains Waller. “My goal is to inspire everybody to show up for themselves at the beginning, middle, and end of each day.”
