Font Size:

Welcome to the exciting science of Naturopathic Medicine.  A career in Naturopathic Medicine is professionally, personally and financially fulfilling. Like many health care professionals, Naturopathic Physicians (NDs) are licensed in many states.In Michigan, as of now, there is no licensing or regulation for Naturopaths. In Canada, Naturopaths are also licensed to practice medicine. It is your responsibility to learn about the legal & licensing requirements. Such information is also available from The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

The practitioners of Naturopathic Medicine, treat the whole person, recognizing the patient’s physical, mental and spiritual health, cultural and genetic predisposition and environmental influences. The curative remedies are based on the underlying cause and not necessarily the symptoms. The Naturopaths not only treat the patients but also offer nutritional, psychological, social and environmental guidelines to prevent disease or to avoid acute illnesses from progressing into chronic conditions.

Most hospitals have now embraced Natural Medicine and have set up special departments for Natural, Holistic Integrated or Complementary Medicine. Naturopaths may work at these hospitals, large medical groups or set up their own private consultation.
