About the Naturopathic Doctor Development Center

TheNDDC was built to improve the exposure of the Naturopathic industry and ensure that smart, passionate practitioners (you) have amazing careers that are both personally and financially satisfying.

This site covers everything that an ND needs to know beyond treatment protocols. We offer top tips and strategies for every element of the job from making more money, to daily tips for your marketing, both online and offline, to strategies for getting more patients, developing high-integrity multiple income streams, and patient adherence strategies.

I’m Dr. Alison Chen ND and, while this is my baby, it’s not a solo effort. It’s the direct work of countless of the best practitioners around the World.

Naturopathic Medicine is an amazing career; one that has the potential to help so many establish long-term health and vitality, but it’s difficult. Up until now you were on your own and, even with management, proper guidance in what it really takes to be successful is few and far between. Our focus is on your success.

theNDDC Back Story

After graduating from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) I decided to take some time and assess how I was going to approach the industry. After hearing from colleagues and mentors privately divulge the realities of the profession, I became chagrined and contemplated what my next move was going to be.

With our ability to elicit change in our patients, it surprised me to find out how difficult it is for ND’s to make a basic living, let alone what a doctor should be making. Seeing the success that my partner, Jonathan Goodman, has had building our sister site, the Personal Trainer Development Center (thePTDC), I knew that was the next step.

In order for the Naturopathic profession to thrive, two things need to occur:

1. Awareness of what it is that ND’s really do needs to become common knowledge.

We must promote to the World that we are registered clinicians that rely on empirical research-based medicine just as much as MD’s. The difference is our reliance on treating the body as a whole: spiritually, mentally, and physically.

2. ND’s must become better at building efficient business systems and marketing.

If our industry is going to thrive, the first thing that needs to happen is a fair wage for ND’s. There’s nobody to blame but ourselves. We are a business and we need to start acting like one but go about it with integrity as our #1 priority – and that doesn’t mean relying on a dispensary to pay the rent.

There’s never been a better time to be a Naturopathic Doctor.

People are looking to be supported more on their personal health journeys and ND’s are perfectly suited to ride the wave. But we’ve got work ahead of us and the most powerful way to ensure that you’re successful is for you to put into place strong business and practice systems.
