Holistic practitioners face unique business-growth challenges. For most, their gifts and passion lie in healing root causes of their patients’ illnesses rather than growing businesses.
Of course, another key challenge is time. How can an independent naturopath continually devote sufficient time to promoting his or her practice, and not lose time spent with patients?
This is where we come in.
Our purpose at BBP is to expand the world of alternative medicine through helping naturopaths to easily write and self-publish wellness books. These books enable prospective patients to discover natural cures as an alternate treatment to conventional medicine . . . and to discover you as a holistic health care provider.
Yes! I assist entrepreneurs and business authors to write, illustrate, and self-publish their business books, in three key subgenres:
Informational/How-to (like most business books)
Autobiographical (like Rich Dad Poor Dad)
Allegorical (like Fish! and Who Moved My Cheese?)
Just Eat Real Food
Just Author a Book
Forbes Magazine quotes, “ ‘The vast majority of the authors we surveyed — 96% — said they did realize a significant positive impact
on their businesses from writing a book and would recommend the practice.’ ” Link Fortune Magazine highlights the stunning cultural shift to natural options for health improvement: “77% of Americans are actively trying to eat healthier, . . . but only 19% say they’re on a diet. . . . It’s the fact that more and more people are focused on health first—and calories second.” Link BookMarket reports, “Because most larger businesses now spend a significant amount of money on health insurance, self-funded health programs, or HMOs, there is a large market for any book, tape series, or other program that will help keep their workers healthy.” Link And Publishers Weekly reveals that the self-help genre (which includes health books) tops the list of best-selling book categories, growing an astonishing 15% in a single year (2014).

We work with practitioners of Functional Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Chiropractic Care, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and with other natural health care providers.

to author a premium business book
designed to target your patient niche
and expand your holistic practice.

For almost a decade, I assisted entrepreneurs and business coaches to create and self-publish their business books. Then the health of my family took a sudden, life-threatening turn. In the end, functional medicine specialists played a key role in saving the lives of my sons.
Now my mission with BBP is this:
To expand the world of alternative medicine through wellness books that
help restore readers to vibrant health.
As owner of Business Book Productions, I believe that a custom-developed, finely targeted business book is one of the most important marketing tools an alternative medicine practitioner can produce. And I know your time is precious.
So I’ve designed BBP’s book-creation solutions to quickly and easily help you to create (and self-publish) a top-of-the-line book, even if you’re not a writer. That means no guesswork. No unknowns.
We offer complete business-book-creation assistance, from development of an initial idea to a published book in your hands.
In short, BBP makes the complex, simple.
As many as one million new books are published in the United States each year. Within the next five to seven years, an alternative medicine provider in your community is likely to have authored one or more business books . . . and positioned him- or herself as the leading go-to holistic practitioner in your area.
That practitioner’s book and brand will be prominent locally. And that practitioner will be the one that people in your community know, like, trust, and refer friends and family to.
That practitioner needs to be you.
It’s best to start creating your book as soon as possible.
