"There's no way we can just focus on the physical aspects of health such as yoga, green juice, or supplements without the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects too." - Adrienne Nolan Smith
"You are the CEO of your health and all change starts with people speaking up. Slowly but surely that becomes a movement against the current healthcare industry" - Adrienne Nolan Smith
"All of us deep down know when we don't feel whole and we don't feel like we're really on the right track to living our best life or preventing and reversing from chronic illness when it might arise. It's important to do the work to arrive at a place where you feel whole and are able to experience everything that life has to offer from joy and movement to relationships and self-love." - Adrienne Nolan-Smith
"You are the CEO of your health and all change starts with people speaking up. Slowly but surely that becomes a movement against the current healthcare industry and we truly have no choice because if you look at the rate of this chronic disease epidemic, it's just skyrocketing and there are no signs of it slowing down." - Adrienne Nolan-Smith
"The conventional healthcare system loves scores, charts, and tests. So, I'm sure they could come up with some way to create a quiz or a test to score emotional intelligence if they haven't done so already. You can use those results to help any practitioner, doctor, or insurance company to understand the baggage that people with illnesses are holding onto as well as the fact that they're not self-aware or very emotionally intelligent to be able to work through what they're going through." - Adrienne Nolan-Smith
"It's absolutely worth investing money into helping people quantify their emotional intelligence, understand their thoughts and feelings, and unpack what's inside. Sure it may take time to see trends and quantified results but I believe that anyone who invests in holistic health will see the impact of certain activities that either worsen or improve one's health." - Adrienne Nolan-Smith
In her personal and professional experience, Adrienne Nolan-Smith has seen how integrative health and wellness are key to preventing and reversing disease. When she was 11, Adrienne was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Her conventional doctor prescribed antibiotics, but they didn’t work and her mother was then told there were no other options. Two years and multiple integrative therapies later, Adrienne was Lyme-free. Over the years, other health issues came up and each time it became clear that conventional doctors had tools to treat her symptoms, but they never got to the root of the problems, nor did they really try to cure them.
In 2010, Adrienne lost her mother to suicide while she was on antipsychotic and antidepressant medications to treat schizoaffective disorder. At that point, Adrienne knew she needed to completely switch careers and began working for a healthcare technology company, hoping to fix the system from the inside. After several years working with hospitals, she realized that, until wellness is the standard of care, the current chronic disease crisis would only continue to rise. She also realized that until people demand wellness from their doctors, their brands, their employers, their governments and ultimately, from themselves, nothing will change. Adrienne founded WellBe to facilitate this change by helping you get and stay well, and demanding a system that supports you in this endeavor.
Adrienne received her BA from Johns Hopkins University, her MBA from the Kellogg School at Northwestern University, and is a board-certified patient advocate (BCPA). She lives in New York City, where she was born and raised. Adrienne gets WellBe with acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and eating (mostly!) clean, real food.
