Naturopathic Doctors or ND’s are highly educated primary care providers who integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies.
They work in partnership with other regulated health care providers to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive and effective care possible.
NDs obtain comprehensive and rigorous training in an educational structure similar to that of medical doctors. NDs require three years of pre-med postsecondary education, plus four years of full-time study at an approved college of Naturopathic Medicine.
A naturopathic doctor is a naturopath who has a minimum of seven years of postsecondary education and possesses a degree or diploma that grants the use of the term “Naturopathic Doctor” or “N.D.”.
Those who hold the title of Naturopathic Doctor or ND typically practice as primary health care providers of naturopathic medicine.
Naturopathic medicine is a complementary and alternative medicine. Naturopathic Doctors prefer to use natural treatments and remedies such clinical nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, asian, medicine, physical medicine, lifestyle counseling and homeopathy rather than surgery or synthetic drugs.
Our Naturopathic Doctors emphasize a holistic approach to patient care, and may also recommend patients use conventional medicine alongside their treatments.
