Health is big business, and billions of dollars in revenue is generated every year in the pharmaceutical industry. But a lot of doctors also find success in the world of naturopathy – that is, alternative medicine based on the theory that diseases can be successfully treated or prevented without the use of drugs, by techniques such as control of diet, exercise, and massage.
Here are three successful entrepreneurs that have found success as naturapathic doctors:
#1 – Dr. Ro: Based in Gadsden, Alabama, this doctor is the author of Dr. Ro’s Ten Secrets To Livin’ Healthy and an award-winning health journalist and television personality known for her easy-to-apply diet, fitness, and health advice for women and families. She is also the Dr. OzShow Nutrition Coach who helped over a half-million Americans lose more than 5 million pounds.
#2 – Dr. Sebi: Based in Los Angeles, California, this pathologist, herbalist, and naturalist uses an African approach to disease that relies on natural botanical remedies to cleanse and detoxify the body, bringing it back to a more alkaline state from the acidity that causes disease and pathology. He believes that natural vegetable cell food compounds are an important part of that change.
#3 – Dr. Tabitha Carr: Based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this doctor aims to educate and guide her patients along the path of natural healing. Her focus is on nourishing the body, and removing dietary stresses and deficiencies that challenge normal physiological functions. Her company, Bulivian Natural Recources, helps patients address the root cause of their health challenges by analyzing and correcting body chemistry.
#4 – Dr. Scott Whitaker: Based in Los Angeles, California, this this board certified naturopathic doctor has over 20 years of experience in herbology, iridology, homeopathy, natural healing and detoxification. He is also the author of the award-winning book, Medisin: The Causes and Solutions to Disease, Malnutrition, and the Medical Sins That Are Killing the World.
