NSP Manager School

Sometimes being a health coach can be a little tricky. Some coaches get wrapped up in red state issues, but it really doesn’t matter if you stay in your scope of practice. That can seem like a challenge, but it’s really not complicated at all if you come at it from the correct perspective. Many coaches obsess on “knowing enough”. Knowing enough for what? Diagnosing? Treating? Um, that’s called being an M.D. If you try to diagnose and give directives for treatment, you can find yourself in a sticky legal situation. You may know that I am an herbal consultant for Nature’s Sunshine. What you may not know is that I don’t just tell people which herb to take for a given symptom. To understand why that is not an effective way to coach, let’s take a look at the current medical model in this country. It is based on Pasteur’s Germ Theory. This is where Allopathic medicine comes from. If you are not familiar, Allopathic is another word for Western Medicine and is a system of medical practice that aims to combat disease by use of remedies (as drugs or surgery) producing effects different from or incompatible with those produced by the disease being treated. It’s basically a war between disease and treatment and the body is the battle ground…and often the collateral damage. So how can a holistic practitioner help her clients? We teach them to work with their body’s innate intelligence. When someone “heals” from an illness it is because their body was able to do what it was designed to do. If you are looking for a way to practice functional medicine, this is it. It’s all about building systems NOT treating disease. How does that look in practice? Glad you asked! My mentor, Steven Horne teaches a wonderful course on that! It’s called NSP Manager’s School…and it’s getting ready to start! I could explain it, but why not let Steven tell you about it. In this recorded webinar, Steven Horne tells about the principles he believes made Manager School he taught for Nature’s Sunshine Products in the 1980s so successful. He also talks about legal issues facing us in the natural health industry today and how these principles can help us navigate this legal climate successfully.
