Philosophy and Practice
Naturopathic medicine is based on the theory, science, and understanding that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians fuse the intelligence of nature with modern medical science to discover the root cause of disease and to stimulate the body’s natural-inborn healing processes. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are knowledgeable through their training to discover the unique chemistry each individual needs to assist in this process. Diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, supplements botanical
medicine, and other cutting-edge therapies are the devices NDs utilize.
Naturopathic doctors have the ability to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs
when necessary. NDs are trained to treat the whole person, not just a simple symptom or a disease, such as hypertension or diabetes, because they view the human body as a complex system. NDs have the education along with the qualifications to perform minor surgery. They also have the authority to order laboratory tests and imaging studies to aid in their diagnosis.
Education & Training
Naturopathic doctors are educated at four-year postgraduate
naturopathic medical schools as primary care physicians.
Naturopathic doctors gain extensive training through their required-clinical internships in hospitals and private clinics before they can pass a state board exam to acquire their license. To read more about

information and words I didn't understand."
