Naturopathic doctors are highly educated health care providers who integrate standard medical diagnostics with preventative medicine and natural therapies. These therapies include: herbal medicine, homeopathy, diet, supplements, mind-body medicine, and lifestyle counseling.
A licensed naturopathic doctor has completed four years of pre-med studies, four years of graduate school at an accredited Naturopathic Medical University and has successfully passed North American-wide licensing exams(NPLEX).
