Before you should recommend supplements to a patient, they need to know some important concepts and principles to make them receptive to your recommendations. The more they know, the more likely they will be to accept your recommendations and continue taking supplements long after their primary complaint has resolved. They will also be much more likely to recommend your nutritional service if they know why supplements are so important.

The page will include the name of your practice, contact information, and any special offer you make available to potential new patients.
Share Important Concepts
Depending on your subscription level, your patients will be able to share any of the important concepts videos they view with friends and family. When they do, the recipients receive a link to a page branded for your practice that includes your contact information and any special offer you would like to provide. Although your patient may be prompted to share one particular video, when they do the recipient receives access to all the important concepts at your level.
Patients can share their success stories about your professional service and nutritional program
If you have a Level 2 or 3 subscription, we will encourage and make it easy for your patients to share the successful results of your care with their friends and family. Personal referrals are the best way to grow a practice.

Michael explains how adding and growing a nutritional component to your practice can help your practice grow by expanding the services you can offer your patients. He shares key procedures that can make adding nutrition a simple process.
Educate Before Making Patient Recommendations
The better you educate patients on the need and value of supplements, they easier it is to offer them a program they will comply with. This is also one of the best ways to generate referrals.
Offer General & Optimum Health Programs
There are only two reasons practitioners don't recommend supplements to patients, time and lack of expertise. These are no longer valid reasons. Michael suggests you simply start recommending the General Health, Daily Fundamental Packets to every patient.
Every Patient Wellness Programs
The Every Person Wellness Programs will improve the health of every patient, supporting the restoration of health or preventing the development of specific health issues. These programs will establish you as someone your patients should see to stay healthy rather than only after their health fails.
Condition and Symptom Nutritional Support
Recommending supplements to support patients with specific conditions is simple once you know which supplements to recommend. You can either use the protocols Michael recommends to his patients or your own. If you have a level 3 subscription, simply check off the condition or your own protocol and ask your patient to visit your site.
How to Use the Systems Survey Form
Using the systems survey is as simple as asking your patient to fill out the survey, determining which group they are in, and recommending the appropriate presentations. I will explain what the survey is, how it’s used, and what their findings mean. It’s that easy.
The Nutritional Exam
There are a number ways to take the guess work out of determining what supplements will provide the most value for your patients at any particular point in time. You now know how to offer protocols based on general and optimal health, a specific condition, or a systems survey. This step in our Practice Expansion Program will give additional tools to assess your patients.
The objections are available for three reasons; to recommend before you are faced with an objection, to ensure you know what to say if asked, and for a patient can see the topic from among the others and view it if they are interested. Having them available also handles a spouse who might have an objections that needs to be addressed.
Nutritional Exam Presentations
You can recommend these to save time explaining and to ensure your patients know exactly what you are asking them to do. Over the next year we intend to add additional topics as we expand our examination procedures
Every Patient Wellness Protocols
These are a great way to position your practice as a true nutritional wellness clinic. Instead of simply recommending supplements to deal with the latest health issue, you can start to impress upon your patients the value of prevention and wholistic healthcare. You should recommend these protocols to every patient as soon as you have their most pressing issues under control. These are also a very good reason to ask your patients to make appointments for the rest of their family.
