About Naturopathic Medicine

The past 30 years has seen an extraordinary increase in consumer demand for safe, effective, and cost-effective natural health care. Naturopathic medicine has emerged as the healthcare profession best suited to meet this demand. Although it almost disappeared in the mid-twentieth century because of the popularity of drugs and surgery, naturopathic medicine is now experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Naturopathic doctors offer safe, effective natural therapies and are a vital part of the healthcare systems of North America in the twenty-first century.

Naturopathic doctors are trained in the art and science of natural health care as well as conventional western medicine at accredited medical colleges throughout North America. Integrative partnerships between conventional medical doctors and licensed NDs are becoming more available. This cooperation makes more effective therapies available to consumers. It increases patient satisfaction in their relationships with their care providers. More people are recovering their health by adding naturopathic medicine to their healthcare options.
