What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic doctors are trained in the art and science of natural health care at one of the eight available accredited medical colleges or universities. Naturopathic doctors are equally trained as medical doctors with emphasis on naturopathic therapies. Naturopathic doctors aim to identify and treat the cause of illness and treat the whole person in order to prevent disease.
