Saving Money with Natural Healing
by Steven Horne

This fall I had to use the services of medical doctors for the first time in nearly a decade. It’s not that I’m unwilling to use modern medicine when the situation warrants it, it’s just that I so seldom need medical services.

Anyway, I was blown away at the cost of a doctor visit and very grateful that my knowledge allows me to seldom require their services. The amazing thing is that it doesn’t take a great deal of knowledge to avoid most doctor visits and that’s the knowledge I want to share with you on my Get Well Now Webinar.

Get Well Now is based on the material in my Dr. Mom-Dr. Dad course. In the nine two-hour sessions of this webinar, you’ll learn how to relieve pain and reverse minor injuries in minutes. You’ll learn how to cure colds, flu, fevers, sore throats, earaches, coughs and headaches fast! You’ll also learn how to keep yourself and your family from getting sick in the first place.

Best of all, the first class is absolutely free. And, if you decide to take the remaining eight classes, the cost is only $97. That’s half the price of most doctor visits and the information you’ll acquire even in the free webinar class is enough to avoid many doctor visits.

Create Support Groups
Numerous studies have shown that people who belong to support groups are able to lose more weight and keep it off for longer than those who go it alone. Help your clients create support groups where they can support each other, share experiences, offer ideas, even exercise together. You can be a part of that support group by organizing meetings, emailing tips and ideas, and sharing weight-loss product information.

Nature’s Sunshine has organized Sunshine Friends, a weight-loss society made up of individual support groups competing in a weight- loss contest.

Focus on Obesity in the Workplace Obesity and its accompanying health effects have become the #1 cost to companies in the U.S. in the form of sick time and health costs. Many companies are ready to take new steps to increase the health of their workers and lower health care costs, creating a perfect setting for you to offer your services. Approach local companies and offer to hold seminars on health and weight management.

Become a Weight-Loss Coach So many people want to lose weight and don’t know how. They want someone to take the reins and create a weight-loss plan. Become their “coach.” Give them the information and support they need, just as you would a client facing any other health issue.

Blogs Build Business

Many of our distributors and managers use a blog to build their business. It’s been a huge success for our own increase in customers and I’ve had reports at how much blogs have done for others in our Sunshine Family.

After one of our managers had their blog dumped from Blogger due to a mistake, I found that she didn’t know she could backup the information. We’ve used Blogger for years and never noticed the backup option they have which is basically to export the blog so that you could import it if you wanted to start one or move it to another blog format.

If you have put a lot of work into a blog, you don’t want to lose it. I’ve scheduled to export our blogs every two weeks so we have a recent copy of what’s on there. If you haven’t done this … find out how to do it. If you’re on Blogger, here’s the steps:

1. Go into Blogger dashboard
2. Choose Settings
3. Choose Export Blog

If you’re not doing a blog to drive traffic to your website, it’s very easy to set one up. Blogger is the only one I am familiar with so if any of you need a bit of help on Blogger, just email me.

NSP Regional Meetings and Education Week

These will be held around the country the week of April 5-10 and August 9-14.

Mark your calendars for the next Education Week: May 3-10 and November 15-22 in the Fall. Education Week is great not only for what we learn, but NSP provides product vouchers for attending the sessions. I don’t know what the format or perk arrangement will be for this year … but the info will be on the website so stay in touch with to get the details.

NSP’s Quality Control Video

There are a lot of supplements on the market, but few compare to Nature’s Sunshine when it comes to quality. If you have a website or promote your MyNSP website on a blog, here’s some code to imbed an excellent video on NSP’s Quality Control:

NSP Free Webinars

I sure hope you’re taking advantage of the webinars. I can’t imagine NSP doing these for free forever. The training is great for personal use and you can lead others into becoming an NSP Member by telling them to register for a seminar related to their health issues.

Although Randal and I have been using Nature’s Sunshine products since 1982, we still learn a lot. Generally when we watch we are reminded of something for somebody else or there’s a tip for a personal health issue. It’s always worth an hour of our time to glean the wisdom of others.

Upcoming webinars:

  1. Mar. 8 – Urinary System
  2. Apr. 12 – Business Webinar: Effective Home Meetings
  3. April 19 -26 – Education Week
