About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturpathic medicine looks at an individual as a whole person (including physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual aspects) rather than a collection of separate body systems. It seeks to find and treat the cause of disease rather than focusing on the symptoms. It covers a broad range of therapeutic treatments, including nutrition, botanical medicine (herbs), physical medicine (hydrotherapy, manipulations, massage), minor surgery, homeopathy, lifestyle counseling, IV therapy, and pharmaceuticals.

Naturopathic Education

We are often asked if we are "real doctors." And the answer is, "yes". A licensed naturopathic physician attends a four-year accredited graduate-level naturopathic medical school, and passes a series of rigorous board examinations in all areas of clinical and scientific medicine. We receive over 4,300 hours of total course and clinical hours and our education parallels conventional medical school. In addition to conventional medical therapies, we are thoroughly trained in nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical manipulation, counseling, and hydrotherapy. Currently, 17 states, the District of Columbia, five Canadian provinces, as well as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands license naturopathic physicians as primary care doctors.
