What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a system of medicine that blends the latest advancements in science with precepts taught over centuries.
Naturopathic medicine looks for the underlying cause of a condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. Naturopathic Doctors cooperate with other branches of medical science, referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate. In states that do not offer a license, NMDs do not diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness, rather act as a health coach and consultant, an educator and teacher.
Licensed and Licensable Naturopathic Doctors complete 4 years of post-graduate medical education and 2 years of supervised clinical training. Fourteen states currently license NMDs, and there is an on-going push toward legislation in the others.
Preventive Medicine The naturopathic approach to health care can prevent minor illnesses from developing into more serious or chronic degenerative conditions. Patients are taught the principles with which to live a healthier life, and to take responsibility for their own wellness.
Wellness means establishing and maintaining optimum health and balance. Wellness is a state of being healthy, through positive emotion, thought, and action. It means finding your own balance, your own sense of vitality, your own feeling of empowerment over your life and health.
