What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a holistic form of primary healthcare which utilizes natural and non invasive tools to return the body to health. It combines scientific knowledge and research with traditional forms of natural medicine. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) choose treatments which aim to address the root cause of disease while emphasizing disease prevention. NDs spend 4 years in an intensive post-graduate degree program in which they are trained in core clinical science with 3000 hours of classroom training and 1200 hours in clinical internship. This allows them to understand human physiology & disease, identify medical conditions, assess lab reports/imaging and preform physical examinations and much more. They are also extensively trained and tested in Naturopathic tools and modalities.
