What is corporate naturopathy?

My name is Jeremy Schultz. I am a corporate cog with a natural interest in wellness and the philosophies of naturopathy. In this blog, I am going to endeavor to find out how naturopathy is creeping into the corporate world, or possibly how I can help it to creep in.

Further, I’m going to investigate corporate wellness, which goes by many names, such as employee health, worksite health promotion, and more. In a nutshell, I define corporate wellness as the deployment of programs in the workplace to help employees with health risk identification and wellness improvement. It can range from simply providing online tools and resources for health, to nutritional counseling and coaching, all the way to providing a gym and medical center.

I believe that corporate naturopathy is the logical way that corporations, in particular, should view the health of their employees. The benefits can include both measurable financial savings and immeasurable effects such as reduced absenteeism and more engaged employees. And certainly much more to come!

  1. Hi there Jeremy, I just noticed the link back to your blog. Well done for starting up. Looks like you’re going to be covering some interesting ground.

    There is definitely more focus from employers on their employees health and wellbeing. However I find, at the moment, much of it is lip-service – which is a shame. You only have to look at the absenteeism during this year’s cold and flu season to realise what some good health practices could do.

    Best of luck with the blog.

  2. Welcome Jeremy to the health care blogging community. Great focus and wish you many readers and lots of success.

  3. Hi Jeremy –
    I am on board! As a soon-to-be naturopathic doc (graduating in a few short months), the idea of corporate naturopathy seems like an effective way to introduce large numbers of people to a whole new way of doing healthcare – proactively.

    I’d love to hear more about what you are doing in the realm of corporate naturopathy.
