Transcript of Naturopathic Medicine

It isn't easy...
Licensed Naturopathic physicians attend a 4+ year College/University and obtain a doctoral level degree.
What is it?
It uses 6 principles
To treat more than just disease
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
- WHO definition of health
Why try Naturopathic Medicine?
This prepares NDs to practice medicine
In multiple different environments and states
Primary care with an emphasis on prevention and healthy lifestyle

Complementary and/or alternative treatments to pharmaceutical drugs and surgery

Ability to spend more time on average with a patient per visit

Same diagnostic tools, procedures, and standards of care used by MDs and DOs, but with more alternative treatment tools/options

Preventive care can save healthcare costs and time down the road as well as prevent more severe health consequences

Different way of viewing medicine and the body, looking at the whole person versus symptom specific focused

Evidence based care and treatment plans provided
