Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct healthcare profession that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern, traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are experts in Natural Medical Care. ND’s are licensed doctors by the State of Maine as specialists in natural medicine.
Naturopathic doctors are educated and trained in 4-year accredited naturopathic medical colleges. ND’s diagnose, prevent, and treat acute and chronic illness to restore and establish optimal health by supporting the person’s inherent self-healing process. Rather than just suppressing symptoms, naturopathic doctors work to identify underlying causes of illness, and develop personalized treatment plans to address them.
