MENUMENU

Naturopathic Medicine

WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?

Naturopathic Medicine is based on this very principle recognizing that the body and nature have an innate wisdom in healing. It blends traditional therapies from many cultures with current scientific research.

Naturopathic doctors are trained as general health care practitioners who practice complementary medicine. To achieve a truly integrative form of medicine, it can be used in conjunction with care provided by other types of health care practitioners.

Naturopathic doctors must be trained at an accredited naturopathic college by receiving 4,500 hours of classroom training in basic medical science courses, clinical sciences and naturopathic therapies, as well as 1,500 hours of supervised clinical experience. They are licensed by the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy – Naturopathy in the province of Ontario.
