Natural Practitioner (NP) magazine polled its practitioner readers on their most recommended products to compile its 2022 Practitioner’s Choice Awards. After all, who is better qualified to determine the industry’s winners than the people who recommend them to their patients?

The 2022 Practitioner’s Choice Awards represent a random sampling of practitioners across the country polled earlier this year. The winners are based on the number of votes in each category.

NP would like to thank the practitioners who supported this year’s Practitioner’s Choice Awards with their time and input, and congratulate all the winning manufacturers.
