Hello!

Welcome and thank you for your interest in writing for Sunshine Natural Healing. We created this site to give the people a better understanding of how the human body works and how alternative remedies can be applied to eliminate aliments in a healthy, natural way.

As a writer for Sunshine Natural Healing you’ll be able to contribute your relevant work on a number of natural health topics such as: acupuncture, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, herbal medicine, naturopathic medicine, Chinese medicine, massage, meditation, nutrition, yoga, etc. You may write about any health topic you like, as often as you like, on your own schedule. There is no cap to the number of articles you may contribute. There are a few content guidelines such as no posts promoting porn or pharmaceuticals. You’ll be provided with a full content guidelines email after your author submission is accepted.

Your work will be seen by tens of thousands of active readers on Sunshine Natural Healing. We will also be choosing various articles to be featured daily across our social media platforms. Your articles may include a small “about the author” section where you may share your own website or other projects. We ask that you do this in an organic, contextual way to avoid your article sounding like a spammy pitch. We encourage you to begin posting with us as soon as you’d like after you’ve been approved.

Just fill out this brief and simple application to send us the following information:

• Your real name (this will remain private)
• Your preferred pen name (this will be publicly visible)
• Your user name (must be one word, such as “herbalwarrior”)
• Your email address
• A brief statement (5-10 sentences). Tell us a bit about yourself, which topics you’d most like to write about (this won’t restrict your future article topics), and why you’re interested in writing for Sunshine Natural Healing. This short statement is mainly a way to give us a feel for what you’d like to write abut and how well you write. Please limit this statement to 10 sentences or less. You may also link to other works you’ve written in addition to this statement.

If your application is approved we’ll set up an account for you and email you your login information so you can begin posting your articles!

Thank you for your interest,
