Naturopathic medicine doctors believe in the healing power of nature and the body’s ability to restore physiological function. Working together as a team with other doctors and practitioners, doctors of naturopathic medicine approach the body as a whole system and as help to identify and remove root causes of illness.
Inherent in naturopathic philosophy is disease prevention and optimization of health. In addition to the study of disease during their four years of naturopathic medical school, students receive training on the safe use of herbs, nutrition, supplements, hydrotherapy, mind/body medicine, counseling and other healing modalities.
