Defining Our Relationship

Please read this document carefully and electronically sign below so that I know you agree, are committing to your health, and understand the pay structure I am using.

Defining our relationship as we work together

Please be advised that while I am a Naturopathic Doctor, I am not working with you in a doctor patient relationship.  I am not diagnosing any diseases and am not treating any of your diseases.  My role is as a health and transformation consultant only, as I will be guiding you on the ways to best improve overall wellness.  Any supplement or lifestyle changes that we discuss are for educational purposes so that you may make the best informed decisions possible.

By submitting this form you agree to this relationship when working together.

 

Please read the below statement and commit to your health

(Health does not improve without seriously wanting it and no one can fix you other than yourself.  Health only evolves out of one's commitment to making it happen.)

 

I will promptly consider the information Derrick Schull, ND provides me and take action.  I am no longer willing to allow my health to degenerate and cause me suffering.  I will be pro-active, diligent, and fully committed to the work it takes to transform my health.  I will be my own health advocate.  I will work closely with my doctor(s) to request laboratory testing, discuss treatment options, and build a team of qualified health practitioners to help ME manage my own health.

By submitting this form you agree to the above statement.

 

Payment Structure

Please understand that payment is expected for services and that the amount of the payment is entirely up to you.  This is often referred to as a “gift economy.”  Charles Eisenstein has popularized this term and you can easily search him on the internet to learn more.  His book, “Sacred Economics” is a great foray into this traditional economic exchange that existed for most of human history. 

 

When determining the amount of payment, I would like you to carefully think about the value you have received in working with me. 

 

Consider things like how much time I spent on reviewing your history, developing recommendations, and talking to you face to face (I will provide you this information as we work together). 

 

Consider what your financial situation is like.  If you can’t pay as much as you would like, that’s OK!  If one day your financial situation changes, please consider making another contribution at that time.  If you are well off, please consider paying more to make up for others that are unable to.  My goal is to give everyone access to my services, regardless of their finances.  My hope is that, by and large, everything will balance out. 

 

Please also consider that I make no money on supplements that I recommend, whereas most practitioners get 35-50% of the supplements they sell you.  I think this is a conflict of interest and do not want it to impact my recommendations.  This way you know that I am not just trying to sell you something.  You will get these discounts on buying supplements for life, regardless if you continue to work with me or not. 

Finally, consider that health practitioners typically charge somewhere between $150-$300 per face to face hour.  I give these numbers only because some folks have a hard time coming up with a number in this type of economy. 

 

But seriously, if you feel like I have changed your life, give more.  If you feel like you did not get much out of it, it's totally fine to give less.  That is the beauty of this system.

By submitting this form you understand the payment structure.

Lastly, thank you for working with me!
