A Message from Justin: 

More and more patients are looking to functional and integrative medicine to improve their health. People are wanting to stick to natural and holistic healthcare interventions, therefore many of them are interested in learning more about supplements and vitamins from a licensed PROVIDER who understands the medical implications of these alternative treatment options.  

Patients are sick of being handed another pill that has side effects and can be expensive. Providing sound nutritional advice and evidence-based supplement and vitamin recommendations can help reduce patient costs and improve clinical outcomes without nasty side effects.  

The vitamin and supplement industry is valued over $100 billion and shows no signs of slowing down! Given the increasing demand, it's crucial for nurse practitioner entrepreneurs aiming to broaden revenue streams and improve clinical results to integrate vitamin, supplement, and nutritional guidance into their practice!
