Curation Policy

Health Counsel brings its readers both original content and curated content. The goal of this publication is to give readers what we feel is the most relevant and helpful information found online. The Internet was built and founded on linking, sharing, and recommending great health and fitness content from other sources on the web.
Curation means finding interesting, well-written, and highly appropriate content for our readers. By choosing an article or recipe from your site, we are giving it our vote of approval. This not only means that we curate your content, we also give it our highest recommendation, and we direct our readers, in every case, to view your content on your website.
Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site and your content. We curated and excerpted your content because it was outstanding in some way. If, for any reason, you wish us not to excerpt your content, simply contact us, and request that your content be taken down.We will immediately and without exception comply with your removal request, and put you on our list of sites never to curate.

Curating Policy
Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories and articles quoted, commented on, debated, discussed, and linked to.  New readers are encouraged to read the articles.
Social sharing of online content only extends the reach, impact, and ultimately the effectiveness and profitability of the original publisher’s website. We are curating your content to inform our visitors, and to point then to the original source of the excerpt. We want readers to discover and visit your content, and your website.We want you to be pleased we curated your content. Standards, practices, and legal decisions about “Fair Use” are still evolving online. Most content is used from freely available information published via RSS feeds. We make every attempt to conform to other publishers’ guidelines. Additionally, we always provide links back to the original article with authors’ credits when available.If you do not want to be curated and linked to by our site, just let us know. We will take action immediately.We curate your stories the way we hope others will curate our content.
Specifically, if you like a story on our site, we are pleased and gratified. Please feel free to curate it as generously as you wish. In return please just give us clear credit, links back to the article, and some encouragement for interested readers to visit the original article. Take as much of our content as you think will inform and entertain your readers. Just link, credit, and encourage the reader to visit the original site. That is what we do. That is what built the internet. That is what social sharing is about. Everyone benefits when sharing is done respectfully and honestly.

We never re-publish without full credit, links and sending you readers. Most importantly, sharing and curation and excerpting standards are still evolving online.
