NATURAL HEALTH PRACTITIONERS AND YOU

Posted by mercycounseling on June 1, 2018 at 2:15 PM

by Susan Haberkorn, D.PSc.


You may have wondered, What is a natural health practitioner, anyway? The natural health practitioner may be a licensed or unlicensed health professional. She is someone who helps guide her clients to make choices based on the underlying needs of the body, soul, and spirit—choices on a hierarchy of continuous care from most natural/least invasive all the way up to referral for conventional medical interventions.


Unlicensed natural health practitioners operate legally as educators. They are not authorized to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease, because those words are reserved for those associated with the American Medical Association and licensed by state medical licensing boards. This doesn’t mean, however, that consultation with a natural health practitioner is without tangible benefits. You may be wary of the pharmaceutical and surgical leanings of western medicine and the constraints of insurance policies. You may desire an alternative, natural approach to your health questions. Consulting with an unlicensed natural health practitioner may provide you with the self-empowerment you are looking for to take charge of your wellness goals.


Here are some of the many aspects of wellness your natural health professional can provide, but this is by no means exhaustive:

• Helping you identify and remove factors that may be disturbing your wellbeing. For example: eliminating sources of toxicity; improving your attitude and emotional state; and inspiring you to choose a healthier lifestyle.

• Helping you identify and evaluate healthy lifestyle and environmental factors that, if not met, may be blocking you from achieving optimal wellness. For example: your spiritual life; self-assessment; your relationship to the larger universe; fresh air; exposure to nature; clean water; sunlight; diet, nutrition, digestion, and elimination; unadulterated food; rest; exercise; socio-economic factors; culture; stress; trauma; influence of your medical history; physical and emotional stressors and trauma; toxic and harmful substances; addictions; loving and being loved; meaningful work; stages of life; and community. (Source: The Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Medicine, 3rd Ed. by Joseph E. Pizzorno, Michael T. Murray, and Herb Joiner-Bey. St. Louis: Elsevier Inc., 2016)


The professional natural health practitioner, as counselor, will have your well-being as her over-arching commitment and concern; and she will never make you feel powerless through coercive fear tactics. Unlike the typical 8-minute facetime with medical doctors, your visits with your natural health practitioner will allow all the time you need to ask questions and understand the concepts presented. You will remain in the driver’s seat, and your decisions concerning the path you choose will continue to be yours.


Natural health professionals offer you alternatives you won’t find in doctors’ offices. In my practice at Mercy Christian Counseling Ministries, I use both subjective and objective evaluation criteria to help you find your path to optimal wellness.


If you are ready to be empowered, call a natural health professional today.


Susan Haberkorn holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Pastoral Counseling from Colorado Theological Seminary, and an advanced certificate in Natural Health Studies from New Eden School of Natural Health and Herbal Studies. She is currently enrolled in the doctoral program in Natural Health Practices at New Eden School of Natural Health and Herbal Studies.
