“Dr. Eli Camp is a leader in our profession, who not only is a mentor to students and business owners to help others have rich visions and thriving practices, but she is also solution-oriented and provides a long list of valuable resources, as well as helps connect people through her extraordinary networking community. I think what I am most impressed by, aside from her Tricks of the Trade class (which was awesome!) is the fact that her continuing education program gives 30% back to the AANP, state associations and other organizations; this totalled $36,000 in 2015! Dr. Eli’s financial investment in the state and national organizations shows the depth of her heart, and her willingness to continue helping forward the naturopathic profession in any way she can. Any ND who is invested in not just their own business but in the health, wellbeing, and vitalism of our profession as a whole, has the highest of rankings in my mind, and I would absolutely recommend her Tricks of the Trade Class, her mentorship, and her websites including Medicine Talk Pro. I am so grateful that she is able to give so freely to the naturopathic profession.”
“I cannot say enough about Dr. Eli Camp and the Tricks of the Trade Business Seminar! This seminar is more than worth the reasonable price and I am certain it will pay for itself over and over again. As someone without a business background, I found the seminar information easy to understand and so useful in helping me complete my business plan. Dr. Camp inspired me reach higher and dream bigger; I truly believe with the resources provided by Medicine Talk I will be a successful physician.”

“I left the seminar with so much valuable information! I cannot wait to see what happens when I incorporate all the tips into my existing practice. The newsletter service is something I plan to use right away. A step by step guide to opening or restructuring your practice is what you will gain by attending the seminar. In fact, the information was so valuable that before leaving the seminar, some colleagues and I put together a weekly meeting schedule in order to keep each other accountable while incorporating Dr. Camp’s “tricks” into our business. Thanks for everything Dr. Camp!”

“Starting a new Naturopathic practice can be a daunting task and with it comes a lot of work to market yourself and get patients in the door. I was so grateful when starting my practice to find medicinetalk and all it’s resources. Most importantly, I have been exceptionally pleased with the newsletter service that medicinetalk provides monthly. It can be a difficult task to find writers that understand my profession and these newsletters not only do that, but also come very well researched and professionally written. I cannot express the amount of time this service has saved me as well as the amount of patients it has gained me. I have referred many other practitioners to medicinetalk and will continue to do so in the future. Highly recommend it!”

Having come from the world of business and having an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, I could not help but to regret that I didn’t have this information when I was a new graduate. My business experience eventually guided me through the challenges of building a practice. It, however, was through much trial and error and much wasted time and expense to figure it all out as there are many unique challenges in developing a naturopathic medical practice.
I unreservedly recommend her program to any soon to be or new doctor. Additionally, I would also highly recommend her seminar for experienced doctors wanting confirmation of the effectiveness of their business practices or for those wanting new ideas.

Dr. Camp. I went to your very informative lecture at CCNM (I think in 2009) and have since graduated, passed NPLEX, and am opening my doors to patients July 2011! I\’m so excited and overwhelmed by all the little details. Your material has helped me so much with things I never knew I had to think about. It is making my life so much easier… I don’t feel that I can explain exactly how much I appreciate what you\’ve done for NDs in business… I just want to hug you!
Theresa, SCNM Graduate
the Trade was by far the most practical and useful. I went home with so many tools and so much information that I could use immediately to create a successful business!
Dr. Eli Camp is excellent at sales and marketing. Her ideas were original, affordable and realistic. With some training from Dr. Camp and some hard work, I was able to grow my business in a short time.

Plan your work…and work your plan. This is exactly what I learned this conference. I left this seminar in awe. I am so impressed with my future. (It’s so bright I go to wear shades). Thank you Dr. Camp, your enthusiasm is infective and I definitely saw some of myself in you. Thank you for spreading your wealth of knowledge to our profession. I am grateful to have you as a colleague.

Thank you so much for putting on Tricks of the Trade this weekend. It was not only an incredibly informative seminar, choc-full of helpful tidbits and useful nuggets, but also wonderfully and refreshingly motivating. The presentation was upbeat and left me feeling that I have a game plan and a way to shape my dreams into reality. Many thanks.

There are few people who can keep their audience engaged for the entirity of a workshop. Dr. Eli Camp presents material in a way that illustrates her passion for both naturopathic medicine and how to create a successful business using it. Dr. Camp takes you step by step through a timeline of setting up to sustaining a practice, providing a complete outline that guides individual creativity and vision. After taking Tricks of the Trade, I left with the tools I need, and the knowledge of how to use these tools, to be confident that I can, and will, create a successful practice! Thank you Dr. Camp for answering all of my questions and sharing your successful experience of practicing what you love.

“The tools that Dr. Camp has provided for me have been invaluable. We did training on November 7th and by January 1st my practice has picked up so much that I had to hire an office manager; by the end of February my practice has tripled and there are no signs of a slow down! Thank you so much for providing the necessary tools to have a thriving practice.”
Dr. Lisa Amerine, N.D.
“As a brand new doctor, I was overwhelmed by the task of starting my practice. Talking with a successful doctor like Dr. Camp helped me realize that I, too, could be successful. She provided some very specific, manageable tips and ideas that I’ve been able to implement in my practice with great results. I would highly recommend her business seminar for new doctors as well as doctors who want to see more growth and success in their practice.”

When I considered starting my practice a rush of fear came over me. Where do I start? How do I market myself? Where can I get help? These questions and countless others were answered with my Business Naturally consultation. Their insight, awareness and support helped me to see my practice right in front of me. I am truly grateful for their help and my patients are especially thankful.

Dr. Camp provided a very comprehensive and innovative approach to starting a new business in the current healthcare environment. Her novel approach to marketing your clinical skills to patients will be invaluable to our business success. Any Clinical Pharmacist looking to start their own Consulting Business should seek her out!

Prior to this presentation, I had little to no idea of how to start a business. I now feel that I have all of the information and resources needed to create a successful business plan. Dr. Camp provides the vital framework needed to get started.

Dr. Camp is an amazing doctor, healer, and teacher. She has a special way of breaking down information so that its easily understood and used. I highly recommend taking her courses for her passion and wisdom will make a lasting impact on your life.

I have attended Dr. Camp’s “Tricks of the Trade” seminar on two separate occasions now and I can highly recommend it as being well worth both your time and your money. Dr. Camp’s passion, knowledge, and positive energy are uncommon gifts, and they leave you as the student feeling inspired and empowered. I have used the road map provided by Dr. Camp to open 2 offices, and I encourage you to capitalize on any opportunity you may have to learn from this extraordinary educator and outstanding human being.

I attended Dr. Camp’s 2-day seminar on “Tricks of the Trade” in Phoenix, AZ a few years back. I had already been in business as an independent pharmacist practitioner for about a year by this time. Even at that point, having already put some of the business aspects into play myself, the information she provided was extremely valuable. I found it so valuable that I recommended the seminar to our National Pharmacy Organization to help pharmacist practitioners as they delve into private practice. They did hold the seminar. It was so successful that they have now asked Dr. Camp to return a second year! If you haven’t attended one of Dr. Camp’s seminars, I would highly recommend that you do!

Eli has an amazing grasp over the big picture of marketing and can help you see for yourself all the possibilities for success! I still refer to her business course when I’m looking for ideas. She totally rocks.
