Naturopathic medicine is a distinct and comprehensive system of primary health care that emphasizes the use of natural therapies. Licensed naturopathic doctors (NDs) complete a four-year post-graduate medical program and are formally trained to integrate conventional and natural medicine.
In the State of California, ND’s in collaboration with MD’s are licensed to prescribe a wide variety of prescription medication. What sets ND’s apart, however, is their unique professional qualification in integrating conventional therapies and natural therapies, such as nutritional medicine, botanical medicine, bio-identical hormone therapy, homeopathic medicine, lifestyle modifications, mind-body therapies, hydrotherapy and other healing modalities.
