write down what you suggest a patient should purchase for their
particular condition. If MDs can confidently write our prescription for drugs, with no hesitation, why can’t a DC write out
their suggestion for non-allopathic products, that don’t possess
any risky side effects?
Bottom line, DCs should feel no aversion towards suggest-
ing products to help patients. Not only is it “OK” to do so, but
some would say it is your duty to do so – to offer all the advise
you can to make your patients as healthy as possible. Just being
armed with that mindset is half the battle. But if you still feel
uncomfortable with suggesting products to purchase, there are
several things at your disposal to help make it over the hump and
giving all the expertise your patients deserve, including in-home
rehab products and the like. Do it with confidence, knowing you
are doing the right thing for everyone. If you make a couple of
bucks in the process, all the better. Last time I checked we still
lived in a country operating in a capitalistic system, and if you
don’t make profit, you go away. The guy down at the car shop
wasn’t offering to fix my car for free last I checked.
