Naturopathic medicine is a regulated health profession that has a similar level of training to a General Practitioner (GP), but has a philosophy rooted in rebalancing a system through natural means. Naturopaths have a minimum 8 years of education (4 years University Undergraduate, and 4 years professional college/institution) and are trained in minor surgery, pharmacology/prescribing, differential diagnosis, botanical medicine, orthomolecular medicine, clinical nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, physical medicine, and more.

If you’re looking for a health professional that practices alternative and/or functional medicine, a naturopathic doctor is a safe way to receive primary care.
