  • Make it Relevant:  The WellMorph website is a community of healing with a clear mission:  to help people with autoimmune and chronic disease discover the full spectrum of information, practices and practitioners they need to make optimal choices for their own health and wellbeing.   Doing this requires committed Authors and Practitioners willing to develop high-quality articles, products and services which are clear, confidential, well-documented and supported, and professionally delivered.
  • Keep is Positive:  There are many paths to healing.  Present yours in a way that allows other solutions to be ‘right’.
  • Article Length: While we recommend articles have a length between 200-800 words, videos between 5 and 15 mins, we know that it might take much longer to paint the picture of a healing journey.  Longer posts and videos will be allowed if it is necessary and relevant, but the final length of the article is decided by WellMorph editorial staff.
