July 2018 Industry News

From Council for Homeopathic Certification (CHC)
Happy Summer! It is finally this time of year again – beautiful weather, exciting trips and exotic vacations with family and friends. People feel better, healthier and more involved in outdoor activities. This seasonal trend may be affecting your practice. How to sustain and grow your practice during the summer months? Here are a few helpful tips you may want to consider:
  1. Stay in touch with your clients. If you have a newsletter – that’s great! There are many ways to keep your clients posted. Send regular e-mails with information they might find useful and/or engaging. A good example would be a brief article on First aid care, sunburn, insect bites, dehydration and remedy list checklist for travel. Investing an hour of your time into item writing is a great way to stay connected with your clients. You may use these as material for future articles or consider it for publication in relevant homeopathic periodicals.
  2. Give brief presentations at local libraries or community halls. This is a great way to promote and grow your homeopathic practice. Keep the topics of your talks simple and focused.
  3. Offering summertime promotional discounts is another way to keep clients interested. You can be creative about the kind of promos you may want to offer and structure them in any shape and form you like. Everyone likes great deals, but at the end the gift of health and wellness is about smart planning and investing in what matters the most.
  4. In today’s fast-paced life people like short and easy to digest bits of information. Recording brief videos is an excellent way to keep clients interested. Video material is easy to share via social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. If utilized well, it can provide high visibility and exposure and ultimately have a positive effect on your practice.
  5. Your CCH credentials are an added value. You worked so hard to achieve this milestone. Celebrate it! Share with your clients the value of service provided and received by a certified homeopath.
 
This is only a short list of helpful suggestions that you may find of good use. There is so much more you can do to keep your clients engaged and grow your practice, not only during the summer months, but year-round.
 
From Integrated Medicine for the Underserved (IM4US)
Justice and Equity in Policy and Practice
Integrated Medicine for the Underserved (IM4US) was founded in 2009 by a small group of healthcare professionals who had a vision of an organization which promoted equity in health care for all people in the United States. They were from every professional group in medicine and recognized that health care was different from medical care in that to be healthy one needed access to the full range of modalities that enhanced and promoted health including those complementary/integrative modalities.
 
The goals of this 8th annual conference were:
 
  • Foster community among all of those who have a commitment to providing integrative health care for the underserved (healers, educators, administrators, researchers, advocates, policymakers, patients, etc.)
  • Emphasize practitioner and health worker wellness and self-care as a means to avoid burnout, improve satisfaction, and find joy in work
  • Develop skills, disseminate practical information, and share strategies for providing quality care for the underserved
  • Highlight existing sustainable healthcare models and innovative structures of practice that embrace an integrated approach and increase access to care
  • Build an international movement that advances policy and provides advocacy for those that face injustice in health care due to racial, socioeconomic, or other factors
  • Shift the paradigm in healthcare towards one of wellness, prevention, lifestyle changes, patient empowerment, and self-care

From Release The First Report
Do you know that NHMRC carried out its review of Homeopathy TWICE?
Do you know that it BURIED any evidence of the first Report?
The public has a right to know the TRUTH. We need your help!
 
We need as many people as possible, from as many countries as possible to sign up at www.releasethefirstreport.com/join-the-campaign. You can also connect with the campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
 
‘Release the First Report’ builds on its sister campaign, ‘Your Health Your Choice’, launched last summer which achieved huge success, generating over 87,000 signatures in Australia. Now it’s time to go global!
 
The stakes could not be higher. The recent High Court ruling to uphold a ban on homeopathic prescriptions in the UK, based primarily on the NHMRC report, sets a dangerous precedent.
 
As the formal investigation into NHMRC’s conduct has been going on for almost two years, it is time to show the Australian Government that the world is watching and demands that NHMRC explain themselves.
