The word “naturopathy” was first used in the US exactly 100 years ago. But the natural therapies and the philosophy on which naturopathy is based have been effectively used to treat diseases since ancient times. The earliest doctors and healers worked with herbs, foods, water, fasting, and tissue manipulation — gentle treatments that do not obscure the body’s own healing powers. Today’s naturopathic physicians continue to use these therapies as their main tools and to advocate a healthy dose of primary prevention. In addition, modern NDs conduct and make practical use of the latest biochemical research involving nutrition, botanicals, homeopathy, and other natural treatments.
Naturopathic therapies can be applied as a treatment for children and adults with a variety of medical conditions including: Chronic Pain/Fatigue, Immune Deficiency, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Allergies, Natural Hormone Replacement, ADHD, Autism and many acute ailments. Naturopathic therapies can complement the treatments used by conventionally trained medical doctors including conjunctive approaches to cancer.
A Licensed naturopathic physician (N.D.) attends a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an M.D. with the addition of studies in holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. The naturopathic physician is also required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, and physical medicine.
