We Write

(Click Each Item to Expand)

Amazon Listings

Selling your nutritional products on Amazon? We write content that packs a punch and follows Amazon guidelines. We highlight your product’s key features and describe your product with search engine optimized keywords so that it reaches more customers.


Looking to build your online presence and establish your authority in your area of expertise? We write original functional medicine blogs of 1200+ words with SEO and hyperlinks for laypeople or clinicians.

Books, E-Books, & Book Chapters

Have a bigger writing project than you can handle? We can ghostwrite or co-write a book, e-book, or book chapter with you. As published authors, we know how to take a seemingly impossible task like writing a book and divide it up into bitesize pieces. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to write the book of your dreams.

Patient Brochures

Educate and entertain patients with informational brochures. These are used to educate patients about a laboratory test or a nutritional supplement. Or if you are building out your clinic’s educational materials, we can write on the topics most important for you and your clientele. Send a pdf, post it on your website, or design it as a trifold brochure that patients can take home with them.

Sale sheets

One-page informational sheets sell your product by educating the customer. Common in the nutritional supplement industry, these sheets list the key clinical benefits and nutritional information about a supplement. They can be displayed online or emailed as a pdf. Hard copies can be used in the clinic or handed out at conferences.

Scientific Papers

It can be hard to find the time to publish research or a case study when you are a busy clinician, but it is vital for the advancement of functional medicine and natural health. Delegate the extra work to us. We can cowrite a scientific publication with you. We research, organize, write, cite, and format manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Website Content

Ready to launch your next product or service online but don’t know how to describe it on your website? We can help you write your SEO website content to highlight your product’s key features and draw traffic to the site.

White Papers

Want to persuade your audience to buy an evidence-based service or product? White papers are perfect for communicating complex technical information along with the research to back it up. These business-sponsored scientific “white papers” inform professional audiences about the benefits of a functional medicine nutritional product, ingredient, or laboratory test. We research, write, edit, and fully reference (30 + references) white papers, which may be five to seven pages long.
