Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is “a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.” (Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors)

Training for naturopathic doctors includes a degree in pre-medical sciences followed by four years of naturopathic medical training. There are seven accredited educational institutions in North America that provide naturopathic medical training. In order to obtain licensure in Canada or the US, ND’s must complete their education at one of these institutions along with standardized examinations.

Naturopathic doctors are trained in many natural modalities including: herbal medicine, nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, physical medicine, homeopathy, orthomolecular therapy, and more. These methods are used to help each individual achieve a healthy state. The main goal is to support the body’s self healing mechanisms by first determining the underlying cause of illness and disease, rather than just treating symptoms.
