What is Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic Medicine combines modern medical science with the natural laws of healing to maximize the road to health. Enabling the inherent ability of the body to restore and maintain optimal performance, Naturopathic Doctors have the ability to promote optimal health results.
Naturopathic doctors use science and conventional medical techniques to understand the symptoms and causes of particular diseases and then apply powerful and natural treatments to promote healing while minimizing damage to the body. Instead of just managing a disease that gets worse over time, these treatments address not only the symptoms, but the underlying causes behind the disease, all while maintaining the health of the body.
What is a Naturopathic Doctor
Naturopathic doctors (NDs or NMD) are experts in natural medicine and natural health care. In states where Naturopathic Medicine is regulated, Naturopathic Doctors are licensed family physicians able to practice medicine, as well as diagnose and treat all medical conditions.
Qualifications of a Naturopath
Naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous training similar to common medical (MD) and osteopathic physicians before receiving their license. Naturopathic medical schools are 4-5 year graduate schools with requirements comparable to other competitive medical schools.
