Conspirituality: How Wellness Became a Gateway for Misinformation - CBSN Originals.

The wellness community has long embraced alternative approaches to health. But when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the combination of a quest for answers, distrust of mainstream souces, influencers co-opting conspiratorial phrases and hashtags, and social media algorithms built to keep people scrolling created a perfect storm of misinformation. A new CBSN Originals documentary, in the Reverb series, explores how for some, the yoga and wellness worlds became a gateway to conspiracy theories.

CBSN Originals is our premium documentary series that is sure to challenge your views on this and a variety of other issues. See our full series library at cbsnews.com/cbsnoriginals
