Enjoy the latest installment of Dr. Lowell Keppel’s “Good to Know” series for practitioners.
Don’t you just love being in practice? Okay, let’s be honest—some days it’s a YES, and some days it’s a NO! After all, what else is so challenging yet rewarding—both emotionally and financially—than what we do? It’s wonderful that we get paid for something we enjoy doing, but what’s really great is getting to know our patients and their families. We get to share in their celebrations and, of course, their sadness.
The bond between a wholistic health practitioner and the patient is truly unlike any other. Why is it different, you ask? It’s because we care. We don’t do it for the income. We do it for the emotional fulfillment of helping folks and making a difference in their lives. We set aside politics, sports team alliances, and religious differences so we can help enhance the life of the one before us. We laugh, we cry, and we celebrate the victories of our patients.
This kind of professional fulfillment also drives us to keep learning so that we may find better ways of helping them heal. I encourage you to seek out new ways to improve your education with seminars, webinars, study groups, and interactive courses. (By the way, we now offer Webinar Wednesdays from 12:30–1:45 p.m. MST. Grab your lunch and listen from your office.) Some of us even get up early to read the works of Dr. Royal Lee and other nutrition pioneers—much of it available for free at the SRP Historical Archives—because by doing so we just might find that gem of knowledge we can use to help our clients.
Doctoring has gotten more challenging because people are always finding more innovative ways to get sick. But keep it simple and get back to the basics. Do it for your patients, your family, and yourself.
What do I mean by keeping it simple? You can start by remembering that there are only 12 systems in the body that can go wrong, and many of them overlap and influence each other. In other words, by fixing one system you can set off a bowling pin reaction that will fix other systems. How many pins can you knock down with one supplement?
So here we go. Let’s look at the triad protocols that can help improve your patient outcomes.
Triad of Digestion
- Zypan: Protein digestion.
- Betafood: Fat digestion.
- Lactic Acid Yeast: Carbohydrate and sugar digestion.
Triad of Immunity
- Calcium Lactate: Mobilizes white cells.

Simple! Now look for seminars, webinars, study groups, and other education tools. You can also find e-learning courses at the “For Practitioners” page at Selene River Press.
There is always more to learn. When the fire starts inside you, keep it burning hot!
