What is Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is based on a holistic approach to healthcare, with a focus of the doctor as a teacher. Accredited Naturopaths are trained as family practice doctors in medical schools, but the curriculum contains an additional focus on nutrition, counseling, herbal and nutritive supplements, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, and physical medicine.
