Do I have to have a health diploma or a degree to become a health blogger for credibility?

While there’s no real “entry barrier” to blogging, health is a topic in which audiences want credible sources.


A degree in the field could be useful. In any case, always do your research and never forget to use a disclaimer like the following:

The Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. (Source: Medical Disclaimer.)

Facts are important. Consumers are looking for resources that they can use to improve their health.

Medicine isn’t subjective like fashion tips or home design, for example. It’s based in science and can have serious impacts on your readers.

Regardless of the health niche (diets, natural healing, yoga, maternity, etc.) expect consumers to always learn towards someone who knows what they’re talking about. Check out the following influencers on Instagram:


Certifications improve trust. That’s why people always include them in their bios.

I hope another perspective helps and thanks for the A2A!
