What is Naturopathic Medicine?

 

Naturopathic doctors (also known as NDs or Naturopaths) provide health care to people of all ages, focusing on the use of natural therapies to support and stimulate healing processes. All licensed NDs complete a minimum of three years university-level training, including pre-medical courses, then four years at an accredited naturopathic medical college. In naturopathic programs, NDs study the same basic medical and clinical sciences as other health care professionals, like MDs or RNs. Naturopathic physicians are regulated professionals. For more information on training and professional requirements see The College of Naturopaths of Ontario.
