Education in Naturopathic Medicine training in US Education in Naturopathic Medicine schools

Focused on natural health care, naturopathic practitioners use certain foods, herbs, modified diets, and other organic techniques to help cure and alleviate common illnesses, disorders, and diseases. There are various fields of study within naturopathic medicine, such as homeopathy and herbalism, all of which aim to treat the entire person and to educate them on how to stay healthy naturally, without the use of traditional medicine or machines.

Is a Career in Naturopathic Medicine Right for Me?

Naturopathic medicine, sometimes called natural or alternative medicine, is based on the belief that the body is capable of healing itself through processes of exercise, meditation, natural food, massage therapy, herbal treatments, accupuncture, and more. It also focuses on preventing illness in the long term by creating the optimum healthy lifestyle. Naturopathic practicioners may often recommend that patients combine their treatments with those of medical doctors when meainstream protocols like medication are deemed necessary.

What Training is Required?

For a Naturopathic degree you may attend a naturopathic medicine school, which may be just as intensive and competitive as medical school.

Professionals working in naturopathic medicine careers other than a licensed MD (see below), may only be required to hold a specific certification. For more advice on choosing a training program, you may visit the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges or the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

What Career Options It May Give Me?

A career in naturopathic medicine may mean working as an ND, but it may lead to careers as a researcher, author, teacher, health advocate, or consultant. As an ND you might work anywhere, in a hospital or clinic, a private practice, a teaching facility, a health or athletic club, or even a rehabilitation center.
