How to determine if naturopathic medicine is right for you.
Have you ever considered if your personal beliefs about health care align with the medical care you are receiving?
When it comes to your health, it is important to have access to competent, professional and caring health care providers. In addition to our training as primary care providers, the practice of naturopathic medicine is guided by six core principles, as defined by American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP). You can read more about these principles here (1).
Find out if these core principles align with your personal beliefs about medical care.
Is it time to see a naturopathic doctor?
If you’ve just taken the quiz, then you understand that naturopathic medicine is defined by principles, rather than methods or modalities. What we do (3), the tools we use (4), and the training we receive (5, 6) is based on these core principles. It is the philosophy of naturopathic doctors that sets it apart from other forms of health care.
