Complementary Practitioners Support Info:

... by Dieter L. - Editor for useNature

Practitioners of any modality, have special requirements when it comes to starting and running a Natural Health Business; sourcing information, therapeutic agents, clinic rooms, or spa type of equipment as well as special suited insurance, legal and accounting services, and all has to be within a "Code of Ethics and Conduct"

IMPORTANT NOTE:

NO doubt, you are aware that Natural Therapies Practitioners are under constant attack. Some of those attacks are of a vexatious complaints nature, others are deliberate misrepresentations by "skeptics" to discredit Natural Therapies.

Vexatious complaints are hard to protect yourself against. However, work is underway to find legal ways of protection.

However, some of the critic and complaints are certainly valid, and we should learn from that, and adopt guidelines to make sure we practice in an ethical manner. (read: Code of Ethics & Conduct)

Unfortunately, the Natural Therapy System is it's own worst enemy. By not being united and presented as one voice, with the same code of ethics, code of conduct and scope of practice, the Natural Therapy System plays into the hands of "Skeptics".


useNature recommends the following protective strategy:

  1. Adhere strictly to recognised Codes of Ethics and Conduct, - within your clinic, your web-site and on social media.

  2. Adopt an even stricter code by adding "Self-regulatory Health Care Codes".

  3. If you have a web-site, list all your credentials and where obtained, association membership, as well as the "codes" you have adopted.

  4. We are all influenced by marketing principles, please be aware that many marketing principles are contradictory to your "Code of Ethics".

  5. We recommend to separate yourself from selling products for profit.
    Within your clinic rooms, strictly use only prescription needed for a patients direct health benefit, which can be filled in your reception area. Don't stock general health products within your clinic rooms, you are not a Retail Shop, you are a professional Health Care Practitioner.
    General products may be sold by a receptionist within your reception area.

  6. useNature offers a certified listing, making sure practitioners are qualified and adhering to the Code of Ethics. Certification demonstrates professional competence and dedication. It may offer protection* against otherwise valid complaints. -
    useNature recognises the burden of for-ever increasing overheads, and will give discounts for "Certified Listings", if the practitioner is already registered with an Association or Accreditation Body, "approved by useNature".

  7. Further more, use Nature offers a FREE Service: Practitioners web sites checked for code violations & reasons for complaints. - Apply
