Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are trained as primary care providers to treat a wide variety of health conditions. Naturopathic medicine promotes wellness and the prevention of illness or disease. Naturopathic doctors integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies. Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in integrative health care, and treatments can be used on their own or together with conventional medicine.
Naturopathic doctors attempt to treat the root cause of disease and create an environment for healing in the body to support physical and emotional wellness. Naturopathic medicine supports the body’s own healing ability with the use of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, acupuncture/Asian medicine, physical medicine, homeopathic medicine, and lifestyle counseling.
Naturopathic Doctors are required to complete an undergraduate degree, including pre-requisite pre-medical courses, in order to apply to an accredited Naturopathic Medical College. Once accepted into a Naturopathic College, Naturopathic doctors then complete 4 years of intensive Naturopathic medical training and education.
