What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that your body has a powerful natural healing ability. Naturopathic doctors teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to recover from disease.
Naturopathic doctors view you as a whole person, not as a symptom or disease with a label, such as hypertension or breast cancer.
Who Are Naturopathic Doctors?
Naturopathic doctors work in private practices, hospitals, clinics and community health centers. Naturopathic doctors practice medicine throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Naturopathic doctors also work in clinical research. Qualified naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous training before they become board licensed to practice medicine.
