Naturopathic physicians are highly trained in both conventional and traditional (natural) medicine, completing a four-year post-graduate program in basic and clinical sciences, as well as clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, physical medicine, and counseling.
Your ND will prepare a personalized plan to bring you to optimal health. That might include any combination of natural healing treatments, such as acupuncture, homeopathy, counseling, botanicals, biofeedback for stress reduction, and others.
When you visit an ND, be prepared to take an active role in your own health! You’ll receive personalized recommendations regarding diet, exercise, and any other factors that might affect your well being. Ultimately, you’re in control of your health, and only you can decide to make healthy changes. But with an ND, you have a guide to lead you through the confusing maze of nutrition, exercise, and general health information.
