Naturopathic medicine has emerged as the health-care profession best suited to provide safe, effective, and cost-effective natural health care. Naturopathic doctors are trained in the art and science of natural health care at accredited medical colleges. Integrative partnerships between conventional medical doctors and licensed NDs makes more effective therapies available to consumers. More people are recovering their health by adding naturopathic medicine to their health-care options.


Reasons to work with a Naturopathic Doctor (ND)

  • You want a doctor who will treat you, not just your illness. This requires taking the time to listen and understand the genetic, environmental, and behavioral/lifestyle factors that can affect your health.

  • You want personalized treatment.

  • You want to treat the root cause of an illness, not just the symptoms.
    Symptoms can be managed, but it’s more important to understand and treat the root cause—which is the focus of naturopathic medicine.

  • You want to actively participate in managing your own health, with an opportunity to be heard, feel understood, and empowered.

  • You want an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Some prescription medications are necessary for short term and long term medical care, but often some pharmaceutical use can be minimized diet and lifestyle changes.

  • You have not found answers seeking conventional medical care.
