All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Overall, the show does a decent job of defining the line between Western and traditional use of new-to-us wellness trends like ayahuasca.

It's up to the viewer, basically, to choose whether they agree with skeptical medical professionals and scientists or the firmly stated convictions of those who have bought into such therapies.

Wellness industry docu may be an advertisement in disguise.

Aug 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While (Un)Well's excavation of the essential oils industry is slow, the episode that dives into tantric sex delivers the grit.

Aug 18, 2020 | Full Review…

(Un)well comes off as wishy-washy, with personal anecdotes of success countered by skeptical scientists and doctors, neither very convincing in totality.

Aug 18, 2020 | Full Review…

If you can get past (Un)Well's interest in the more charlatan-centric aspects of each wellness movement, it should hold some good information if you're seeking some alternate ways to feel more healthy and happy.

Aug 13, 2020 | Full Review…

It will either make you extremely sceptical or open your eyes to wellness treatments you didn't even realise existed - and that's its USP.

Audience Reviews for (Un)Well: Season 1

  • Aug 27, 2020
    One of these Netflix shows, that is rather about hearing 10 unverified experiences than ever getting to the science of the thing. Quite shallow, but somewhat entertaining.
