What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic Doctors (ND) are licensed physicians specializing in natural medicine. Licensed NDs attend an accredited 4-year naturopathic medical school, must pass professional board exams, and maintain a medical license to practice medicine.

Naturopathic physicians seek to restore and maintain optimum health in their patients by supporting the person's inherent self-healing process. There are a number of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities naturopathic physicians use when treating patients: clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, counseling, naturopathic physical medicine, IVs and injection therapies, and prescription medicines.

Naturopathic medicine is distinguished by 6 principles:

  1. First do no harm
  2. The Healing power of nature
  3. Identify and treat the cause
  4. Treat the whole person
  5. Doctor as teacher
  6. Prevention

We offer free 15 minute consultations. This is an excellent way to get to know us and see if we are a good fit for you and/or your child.


How long is a typical visit?

New patient visits are approximately 60-90 minutes. This ensures enough time to review all medical history, perform physical exams, order labs/imaging, and discuss the treatment plan.

Follow up visits and wellness exams are usually 45 minutes long.
