Naturopathic medicine is a health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It incorporates the art and science of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of illness using natural therapies such as clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical techniques and lifestyle counselling.
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are primary health care providers specializing in natural and preventative medicine, and play an important role in integrative health care. They receive at least 7 years of full-time post-secondary education, including an undergraduate degree, and 4 years at an accredited naturopathic medical school. Training encompasses medical sciences such as physical examination, diagnostic testing, pathology and pharmacology, as well as naturopathic principles and therapeutics and 1200 hours of supervised clinical practice.
NDs are consulted by people experiencing a wide range of acute and chronic conditions as well as those who wish to optimize their health and prevent disease. Naturopathic protocols are tailored to the individual using an evidence-based approached, and are complimentary to other forms of treatment that patients may be receiving.
