About Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine merges conventional medicine with alternative medicine. There is similar training to medical doctors in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, and more. Additionally, naturopathic doctors can perform blood work and write prescriptions for many medications which allows them to serve as primary care physicians. On top of this training there is also education in nutrition, lifestyle counseling, botanical medicine, acupuncture, physical medicine, and injection therapies. Appointments with an ND tend to be longer (30-60 minutes) and the naturopathic principles are important parts of visits which helps to set us apart:
First do no harm
The healing power of nature
Identify and treat the root cause
Treat the whole person
Doctor as teacher
