What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care profession emphasizing:

  • prevention and treatment of disease
  • maintenance of optimal health
  • promotion of the individual's inherent self-healing process

Naturopathic medicine accomplishes health care using holistic diagnosis in conjunction with the following therapies:

  • clinical nutrition
  • botanical medicine
  • homeopathic medicine
  • physical medicine
  • lifestyle counseling
  • pharmaceutical medicine
  • minor surgery

How are naturopathic physicians trained?

All modern licensed naturopathic physicians have Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine degrees from federally recognized medical schools. Their education includes:

  • the same premedical undergraduate coursework required by other schools of medicine
  • a competitive application and admission process
  • graduation from a four-year, federally recognized, naturopathic medical school
  • two full years of supervised clinical internship
  • optional residency programs

Naturopathic medical students study the same basic and clinical sciences as do other medical students, and in addition, a full spectrum of natural medicines and therapies.

How do naturopathic physicians diagnose and treat people?
As primary care providers, naturopathic physicians use:

  • standard medical diagnostic techniques such as extensive health history, physical examination, blood tests, radiology, and other standard laboratory procedures.
  • holistic interpretation in order to find the underlying cause of the disease process.
  • natural medicines and therapies as the first line of treatment, and rational use of drugs and surgery
