Naturopathic physicians (N.D.'s) are general practitioners trained as specialists in natural medicine. They are educated in the conventional medical sciences. Naturopathic physicians treat using therapies from the sciences of clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, physical medicine, exercise medicine, exercise therapy, counseling, and hydrotherapy. In practice, naturopathic physicians perform physical examinations, laboratory testing, gynecological exams, nutritional and dietary assessments, metabolic analysis, allergy testing, X-ray examinations, and other diagnostic tests. The naturopathic physician has a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) degree from a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical college.


Naturopathic physicians work to restore and support our inherent healing systems when they have broken down, by using methods, medicines, and techniques that are in harmony with natural processes.

Naturopathic physicians prefer non-invasive treatments, which minimize the risks of harmful side effects

Every illness has an underlying cause, often related to the lifestyle, diet, or habits of the individual. Naturopathic physicians are trained to find and remove the underlying cause of disease.

Health and disease come from a complex interaction of physical, emotional, dietary genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Naturopathic physicians are trained to find and remove the underlying cause of disease.

The naturopathic approach to health care can prevent minor illnesses from developing into more serious, or chronic degenerative, diseases. Patients can prevent major illnesses by following the principles with which to live a healthy life.

Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. We also recognize the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.
