What Can NDs Treat?


Naturopathic doctors are primary health care practitioners. They are trained to treat virtually all health concerns from acute to chronic, pediatric to geriatric and physical to psychological.

Naturopathic doctors work with three main groups of people:
  • Patients that are looking for disease prevention and health promotion.

  • Patients with a range of health concerns and no clear diagnosis.

  • Patients with chronic and severe illnesses.

Individualized Treatment

Naturopathic treatments are highly individualized. Each patient has a unique story, history, genetics, dietary habits, lifestyle and associated health concerns.

A naturopathic doctor will work to determine the underlying cause(s) and create an individualized treatment plan to stimulate a person’s innate healing ability. Patients are also involved in their health program and learn to make effective, educated, self-care decisions that can prevent future health problems.

Working With Conventional Medicine

Naturopathic doctors can and do work with conventional medical doctors. ND’s are trained to refer patients to other health care practitioners, where appropriate. Most naturopathic doctors cross-refer extensively to other health care practitioners.
