hello dr. Shelton, can you briefly tell us who you are and what you do?
I am currently a medical research director for Zenith Labs and a naturopathic physician with a successful private practice. I am also the Wellness Director and member of the admissions team for a behavioral therapy program.
For the past few years, I’ve been running an online supplement business where people outside of where I am can get the same kind of advice I give my personal patients around the world. I do my best to promote a concept of total wellness and natural health solutions.
I have developed several natural health regimens over the years based on my research. I work hard to teach people that everything else will follow as they improve their overall health.
Describe your company in a few words
Yes, it’s a business, but what we’re really trying to promote here is a culture. Sure, we can go online and sell supplements until the cows come home. A lot of people do that. This naturalistic approach has been my life’s work since I was in medical school. I initially dropped out of medical school because I felt that the traditional way medicine was practiced was to treat the symptoms rather than treat the whole person.
I work hard to use my business as a tool to teach my clients and patients that they can improve their total body health, making it easier to heal other symptoms.
What is your company’s greatest achievement in recent years?
The wave of online business, I would say, is our best achievement in recent years. When we first moved into this space, I felt like the business was not getting the attention it deserved. We did traditional promotions and bought ads, but nothing really got us across that plateau.
Just when I thought maybe I should just let it go, word of mouth started to spread and it spread like crazy. Satisfied patients told other people about what they had experienced using these treatments, and those people flocked to get these benefits for themselves.
In which direction do you see natural health care going?
The coolest thing I think I’ve seen lately is that natural medicine is becoming more mainstream. For a long time, people who preferred natural remedies were seen as ‘uninformed’ or ‘weird’.
Today, people are flocking to find out what natural remedies they can incorporate into their own lives. We’ve all seen so much weird stuff from big pharma over the past decade, so it’s no wonder people are looking for a way to take charge of their own health. It will be much more focused on environmental medicine, lifestyle medicine and anti-aging medicine.
We will begin to use natural treatments, not in response to crises, but rather to promote a level of optimal health not yet seen in the general population.photo credit: PhotoMIX Company / Pexels
What recent developments in your industry do you find exciting?
The way people seem to flock to naturopathy. It is no longer in the margins of people’s minds. I see people taking a more open minded approach to learning about things natural healers around the world have known for centuries.
The general attitude that people have, that they want to discover things for themselves instead of just taking the forbidden wisdom as gospel, is really exciting. I feel like I’m getting closer and closer to reaching more people than ever before.
Again, environmental medicine and anti-aging, natural remedies that specifically target your unique specific genes and DNA to promote optimal health. The days of degeneration and disease will hopefully pass soon.
What keeps you motivated?
My vision. It’s been central to my mind since I was a kid. I saw so many of my older relatives who suffered from chronic conditions simply languish with the traditional medical approaches. I knew there had to be a better way, and I feel like I’ve found it.
What keeps me motivated is the drive to bring what I have found to as many people as possible so that they may not have to see their loved ones suffer the way I did.
What advice would you give to someone starting out in healthcare?
Hang in there. It’s the best advice I can give anyone. Medical school is tough, and it should be. Then you have your residency and boards, which are brutal. Becoming a doctor is a privilege that we, as a society, grant only to those who have proven to be the best at what they do.
If a medical professional is your dream, then persevere and fight tooth and nail for it until you achieve your dream.
Thanks for your time, Dr. Shelton!
