Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are primary care doctors who are trained as specialists in natural medicine. Naturopathic medicine draws from a wide variety of natural therapeutics, which include herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, natural pharmacology, mind/body medicine, and counseling.

All naturopathic doctors attend a four-year graduate level accredited naturopathic medical school. As with conventional medical doctors (MDs), the first two years of naturopathic medical school cover the basic sciences. The second two years emphasize clinical training in naturopathic therapeutics. Naturopathic doctors are trained and skilled in conventional fields of diagnosis and in the use of laboratory testing. After receiving the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree, one must pass a national level board exam to become licensed.

Naturopathic medicine combines a strong, scientific foundation with time-honored and modern healing systems, to produce a comprehensive and practical approach to primary health care.
