What is it like to work as a Naturopath remotely? 

Covid's pandemic has triggered a spectacular revival in the well-being and health industries. Likewise, all practices that relieve or soothe physical or psychological ailments have proven successful. There are already 6,000 practitioners of Naturopathy in the US, which is still an emerging market. Online consultations with Naturopaths are now possible very quickly through digital tools such as videoconferencing. There are many options available to those who wish to turn to alternative medicine and more open-minded professionals! Find out why you should consider this very attractive alternative!

1. Your services are the same as those offered in a private practice

Naturopathy's basics

Naturopaths assist their patients in identifying and understanding the sources of imbalances in their bodies. The goal is to improve the general state of health and to assist with functional or psychological disorders.

Here is a sample of some of the disorders observed:

  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Immune fragility
  • Weight loss or maintenance
  • Drainage or detoxification
  • Stress management
  • Mood disorders or seasonal depression
  • Hormonal imbalances (premenstrual syndrome, cycle disorders...)
  • Chronic pain (muscular, tenosynovial, articular...)
  • Occasionally or chronically suffering from digestive problems

The health professional can suggest a variety of treatment methods, such as food, phytotherapy, or aromatherapy, to be as effective as possible. 

The videoconferencing process follows similar modalities

Session characteristics are the same whether it takes place in the office or remotely:

  • Initial assessments typically last between an hour and an hour and a half and are followed by 45-minute consultations.
  • An extremely attentive, benevolent, and empathic practitioner.
  • Providing high-quality solutions and advice.
  • Consultation fees, even if they tend to decline with regular appointments. πŸ˜‰

2. Video conferencing allows you to offer your services when and where you want.

You can choose where you want to work

Have you ever dreamed of being able to choose where you work? Lemon, the French platform, makes it possible! A computer, an internet connection, and a quiet space are all you need for online consultations. To begin your 2.0 conversion, you just need to register and create your profile. If you're on vacation or on the road, you can schedule an emergency appointment at any time.

Adaptable schedules

Would you like to organize your schedule as you see fit and free up time for leisure activities? Not a problem! Videoconference sessions allow you to choose the time slots you wish to dedicate to your activity. If you need a three-day weekend, you can have one. Make your schedule unavailable on Monday or Friday so that you can study the files of your patients. The choice is yours!

3. Being an online naturopath saves you a lot of money

With remote naturopathy sessions, you avoid many expenses. There are a number of incompressible expenses associated with renting an office. Therefore, you saved all the money you would have had to invest in:

  • Renting a workplace, which is particularly expensive in big cities.
  • Soundproofing the room, to guarantee the confidentiality of your exchanges.
  • Electricity and heating fees.
  • A secretary's salary. Due to Lemon's ultra-simple interface that lets you manage your interviews in one click, you won't need one anymore. 
  • Office furniture, naturopathic-specific equipment, and essential office equipment (computer, printer...).
  • Workplace protection insurance.
  • Breakdown or repair fees.
  • Public transportation and gasoline costs.
  • Lunch break meals, usually consumed in a restaurant.

4. Patients from all over the world are at your disposal

Take your services abroad

Are you trying to reach prospects who live at different latitudes? That's no problem! Lemon doesn't care about distance. It does, however, require an understanding of the time zones of the countries involved. Consider destinations that appeal to your type of persona: do some market research. You can attract expatriates or retirees who have moved to the tropics this way.

Take advantage of your favorite foreign language 

There are no borders in the digital world. You can therefore offer your services remotely to foreign customers if you master another language. Their discovery of your approach to naturopathy will certainly enrich your view of the profession. It is also possible for your practice to evolve through contact with different cultures and horizons. Moreover, this will allow the company to reach an audience previously inaccessible, without spending a dime.
