Q. What is a Naturopathic Physician?

A. A Naturopathic Physician is a graduate of one of the four accredited naturopathic medical schools in the United States. The curriculum is a 4 year post-graduate program integrating medical science with time honored naturopathic principles, which address the cause of disease instead of just treating the symptoms. The training consists of comprehensive study of the conventional medical sciences, including anatomy, physiology, pathology, microbiology, immunology, clinical and physical diagnosis, cardiology, gastroenterology, gynecology, etc, as well as detailed study of a wide variety of natural therapies.
Naturopathic physicians are guided by six principles:

  • First, Do No Harm
  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Find the Cause
  • Treat the Whole Person
  • Preventative Medicine
  • Doctor as Teacher
Naturopathic physicians utilize conventional testing such as blood work, physical exam, salivary hormone testing, and imaging for assessment. Treatment is based on those assessments and may include nutrition, vitamins/minerals, herbs/botanicals, and natural hormones, as indicated. Naturopathic physicians are licensed in 13 states and Canada. The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians is the national professional organization of qualified Naturopathic Physicians.
