What is a naturopathic physician?


Naturopathic physicians are licensed primary care physicians who specialize in natural medicine. We treat disease and restore health by using clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, acupuncture, and lifestyle counseling. Treatments are customized to your specific needs.

Naturopathic physicians do everything medical doctors do, except that we don’t prescribe most drugs, and don’t do most surgeries.

We focus on prevention of future health problems in addition to treatment of current conditions. We work with you as a team to create a treatment plan that is both effective and “do-able”.

Education is a cornerstone of what we do. We take the time to sit with you and explain a disease process or educate you about self-care in relation to your overall health.
