DrWeil.com Advertising and Sponsorship Policy
DrWeil.com is the official website of Andrew Weil, M.D. and the premier resource for timely, trustworthy information on natural health and wellness. The website is owned by Weil Lifestyle. To further our mission of making reliable health information available to the public, we accept advertising and sponsorship under specific guidelines for consumer packaged goods, certain over the counter drugs and other products and services. In alignment with most of the world, (except for the United States and New Zealand), Dr. Weil has a long standing bias against consumer advertisements of pharmaceutical drugs. DrWeil.com reserves the right to refuse any advertisement. The presence of an ad on our website or in our e-newsletters does not necessarily imply a specific endorsement of the advertised product or service. Similar to traditional online advertising models, advertising on our website and e-newsletters is not targeted to individual users and is placed, after approval, through third party ad servers and may appear adjacent to content which may or may not be relevant to the advertiser or sponsor interest.
DrWeil.com maintains a distinct separation between editorial content and advertisements. All advertising on DrWeil.com or the e-newsletters is clearly labeled as “Advertisement” or message from a “Sponsor.” Advertisements for Weil licensed products may claim an endorsement by Dr. Weil, as set forth in the license agreement between the Weil licensee and Weil Lifestyle.
Dr. Weil donates all of his after-tax profits from royalties from sales of Dr. Weil licensed products to the Weil Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting integrative medicine through training, education and research.
