Naturopathic medicine is a unique system of primary health care that is aimed at addressing the underlying cause of disease through the use of both conventional medical diagnostics and natural therapeutics. It emphasizes health promotion and disease prevention by way of individualized patient care and education.
Naturopathic doctors are highly trained health care professionals with an extensive background in biomedical and clinical science. They undergo a minimum of 8 years of post-secondary education, with at least four years spent at an accredited naturopathic medical school. In order to become licensed they must pass 2 sets of standardized North American licensing exams in addition to a board exam held through the regulatory body in their province.
Naturopathic doctors are able to diagnose, order, & interpret standard and specialized laboratory testing, and conduct complete physical examinations within their scope of practcie. What sets them apart is the types of conditions they treat and the therapies that they use. Naturopathic doctors take a comprehensive approach to care and consider all angles of their patient's health while working in collaboration with other health care providers.
