Naturopathic Medicine is a form of health care that emphasizes the use of prevention and natural therapeutics in order to inspire the body’s natural ability to heal. Identifying the underlying cause of disease vs. symptom management is a primary focus of naturopathic healthcare.
Naturopathic doctors are trained at accredited, four-year, post-graduate naturopathic medical programs. In certain states, they are considered primary-care physicians trained in the art and science of natural medicine. In unlicensed states, such as New York, naturopathic doctors offer adjunct health care to people of all ages, focusing on the integrated use of natural therapies. Naturopathic doctors focus on promoting health and preventive medicine, and addressing the underlying cause(s) of disease.
