Note from our President: Miriam Zacharias 

How commitment (and a little rage) can change your fortunes

Not long ago, the following statement was posted on a website called Science-Based Medicine:

“Up until a year ago, I was a practicing holistic nutritionist. As someone who has left that world behind, I have a moral obligation to do what is right – and what is right is to denounce my former beliefs in an industry rife with deception.”

The appalling name of the website notwithstanding, this baseless proclamation by the author is absurd. Yet it is the full article, especially the praise for the author at the bottom of it, that enrages me most.

Writers like this – and the people who support them – keep me committed more than ever to the mission and vision of the NANP. And, clearly, I’m not the only one. Our membership has increased approximately 40% in the past 5 years, an astounding growth rate for a professional association! Hundreds are getting board certified, with scores of applications waiting to be processed. And our conference attendance numbers, exhibitors, and speaking proposals by movers and shakers in our industry are clear indicators that we are, indeed, a growing force in the world.

Still, there’s more work required to battle those who would love to put holistic nutrition professionals out of business. In fact, the more we grow, the louder they get. That’s why it’s essential that we keep our foot on the pedal and double down on our work more than ever.

How do we do that?

Through commitment. Holistic nutrition is not simply a career choice – it’s a movement. On a day to day basis, your power is educating and guiding people toward health. And while this “nuts and bolts” aspect of your work is your true gift, there are antagonists with enormous financial and human resources that can bring everything we are working for to a crashing halt.

Commitment is a tricky thing. There’s not one among us who isn’t committed to our belief in the use of holistic nutrition modalities for optimal health. But believing something is only half of it. Acting on those beliefs is where the magic happens.

Examples of action-level commitment are everywhere within our community:
