Welcome to Reform Balance, your hub for wellness

In a world of social media comparisons and unrealistic wellness standards, Reform Balance inspires a balanced approach to holistic wellness, creating a structured mix of easy-to-read health science articles, transformative mindset tips, and practical recipes to empower those looking for the best way to live a more realistic, reliable, and sustainable way forward. Our goal is to provide you tools, whether your journey to a more holistic life is just beginning or you’re looking for new options to balance, supplement, and sustain your already healthy lifestyle, to take ownership of your wellness journey.

Our science articles view pain and sickness as stemming from root causes and imbalances in the body that can be reversed through natural means within our control. Our articles thus involve meticulous reporting that cuts through complications without oversimplifying. We emphasize preventative care and give readers as accurate a picture as possible for informing their wellness decisions. We recommend deferring to healthcare providers to treat any serious medical conditions.

Our mindset tips reflect our belief that there is no separation of mind, body, and how we feel. Thoughts, feelings, and attitudes are crucial aspects of wellness. Because of our belief, we show specific ways you can improve not only your physical well being and nutrition, but also your outlook, self-care, self-esteem, and even a sense of community and belonging. We bring you practical and actionable advice that helps you take back control of all aspects of your well being.

Our recipes reflect this balanced approach to wellness by creating healthy but delicious and uncomplicated plant-based food we can all have access to. All our recipes are made with natural, wholesome ingredients like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and healthy fat and protein sources (nuts, seeds, beans, lentils, and sprouts).

At Reform Balance, your health is science-backed, integrative, and proactive.


Let’s make taking care of yourself feel realistic again!

About Albert Estvander

Hi, I’m Al.

I’m a wellness content creator who loves writing, food, and traveling.  

I’m a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico; grew up in Cleveland, Ohio; went to Purdue University in Indiana (Boiler Up!); and after graduating with a BS in Nuclear Engineering and getting commissioned as a Naval Officer, moved to San Diego, California, for my first tour. I moved to the East coast for my second tour out of Norfolk, Virginia. After the Navy, I headed overseas and am currently living in Dubai.


While in the Navy, I was put in charge of a division, a leadership position that few people just outside of college could ever hope for. I also got to drive warships in grueling 4-5 hour rotating day and night watches, qualifying for different watch stations and ultimately my Surface Warfare Pin, and rotating through multiple divisional billets.

I became particularly fascinated by the Navy’s physical regulations. Soon enough, I found myself more fit than at any time in my life. I realized that the benefits of a healthy lifestyle extended beyond just being in shape. I found that I had more energy, could handle stress better, and just felt better overall. My interest in a healthy lifestyle grew day-by-day. It’s no surprise that eventually one of my duties became Command Fitness Leader (CFL).

After the Navy, I was drawn deeper into health and wellness. For three years, I immersed myself in books and scientific articles. My careful study compared and analyzed all the information I could get my hands on. This research eventually became the basis for this website.

You’ll usually find me hanging out at libraries or bookstores researching and writing, in restaurants across the world tasting new and exciting dishes, or in the woods or mountains hiking and taking in the fresh air.
