Episode 07 Dr Kris Devillier Naturopath
Potency Mentorship and Receiving What Others Give
Dr. Kris Devillier, naturopathic doctor at Nature’s Link Wellness and President of the Louisiana Health Freedom Coalition joins the podcast. She is trained in traditional naturopathic medicine modalities along with extra courses in Traditional Chinese Medicine dealing with advanced herb usage and evaluating the body in extra ways via pulse, tongue, eyes and really taking notice of the small things that might be generally overlooked. For example: How can eyebrow hair indicate a nutritional deficiency? Dr. Kris wants to treat patients in their entirety: body, mind and spiritual. One of her keys to success is that You have to meet people where they are. Educating your patients and allowing them to be proactive in their health is a main goal in her practice. Dr. Devillier covers why buying a herb at the grocery store is not the same thing as a medicinal quality version, Are all organic products equal, her response might surprise you, Where to get the best coffee and How slick marketing is skewing and causing conflict in the supplement business. She has one secret marketing tip that you need to listen to, hint: groups.
Her back story about working at age 13 in her grandfather’s store, early career choices, and speaking and finance classes by Dale Carnegie and Charles Givens are worth the listen. One of her future goals is realizing that she is of the age that people will begin asking her for advice (from naturopathic doctor questions to business development), so she is making efforts to become that mentor for the younger generation. Also we have a fun talk about creating online products or coaching and the pluses and minuses of it.
Not to give away her relationship advice but, she has been married for a long time and early on she learned to dote on her husband and accept and receive the gifts that he gave (even if they weren’t exactly what she wanted at the time, learn as you go) and do your best not to crush each other’s spirit. Listen to hear Dr. Kris go into more details about that, her number one sex advice and a touching story that might make you need a tissue.
