We believe that the sharing of personal experiences and health know-how is an invaluable exchange of information. Our goal is to provide a platform for people to start and engage in meaningful discussions related to personalized health care.
Types of Contributors
We accept guest posts and contributions from qualifying authors. To understand what type of contributor account you qualify for read the information below.
Licensed Health Professionals
If you are a licensed health professional we’d love to hear what you have to say. Help people better understand the nuances of personalized health care by sharing a story, a professional opinion, or an interesting health-related find that you’ve made recently.
Researchers & Industry Positions
If you’ve got an extensive amount of knowledge in a health-related field, we’re interested in hearing from you as well. For your article to qualify, it must provide research-backed insights into a health-related interest. We do not allow articles from non-licensed individuals to discuss the treatment of any medical condition.
Bloggers & Readers
We believe that sharing personalized health stories is a great way to help find connections that would otherwise go un-noticed. We would be honored to publish a heartfelt and well-written story detailing a personal experience (positive or negative) you’ve had in dealing with your health. These stories can not discuss cures or treatments for other people and are only allowed to describe steps or actions you have taken as an individual.

- First Name

For your article to be approved for publishing it must meet the following guidelines:
- Specific to health and/or wellness
- Must focus on a specific interest, not general tips
- Cannot be too similar to existing content on our website
- 800-1200+ Words
- No offensive language
- No images
- Any discussion of health-related benefits must cite clinical research unless you yourself are a licensed health professional.
- No links to non-authority sources without approval
- Content may not be published anywhere else, in print or online.
A good story should clearly state what you were dealing with, how you approached it, your personal account of dealing with it, and how it affected you afterwards. Here are some examples of such stories:
- Why you chose to take a supplement, how it felt before and after, and how your numbers may have changed.
- Your experience with a new diet, why you chose that diet, any considerations you had to make to meet your personal needs, and how you feel having implemented that diet.
- Steps you’ve taken to address genetic predispositions to certain diseases or nutritional concerns.
- How implementing a more balanced diet has affected your energy and disposition
Stories can be specific or adjusted for broader audiences—the choice is yours. For your story to be published for others to read, it must follow these guidlines:
Stories should be long enough to include the details that someone in a similar circumstance will be able to recognize that.
Links may not be included within the main story body. You will be given an authorship box in which your picture, name, social media, and website can be included. Stories are about connecting with others—not boosting your website’s SEO.
No Offensive Language
Stories will be made available to all our readers and therefore should refrain from using language that is likely to offend others. This includes profanity, racist statements, obscene statements, or exclusionary statements.
At this time, we’re not able to verify copyrights for user-submitted stories. We will select an image for your story based on the overall subject.
