They are the only primary care doctors who are clinically trained in both natural and conventional medicine. Naturopathic Doctors attend accredited four-year graduate-level medical schools. NDs are trained in the same medical sciences as MDs, including the latest advances in medicine, with a focus on natural approaches to treatment.Naturopathic medicine is a distinct and comprehensive system of health care that combines a variety of natural medicines and treatments with conventional medical diagnostics and standards.Naturopathic Doctors seek to restore health and promote wellness using the safest, most effective and least invasive therapies available. NDs primarily use a wide range of natural therapies, but also write prescriptions for pharmaceuticals when appropriate.Naturopathic Doctors work with and refer patients to conventional medical doctors and specialists, as well as complementary healthcare providers, such as Acupuncturists and Chiropractors, as needed. NDs are uniquely qualified to expertly prescribe both conventional and alternative care programs.Naturopathic Doctors are primary health care providers licensed by the Naturopathic Medicine Commitee, Department of Consumer Affairs.
