Some Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a system of medicine based on the belief that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. The goal of naturopathy is to correct the internal environment, eliminate obstacles to a cure, and stimulate the individual's healing force to restore health. Modern natural medicine is a combination of traditional medicinal wisdom and science-based clinical evidence. Naturopathic treatments include nutrition, herbal medicine, physical medicine, body-mind therapies, therapeutic diets, nutrient supplementation, homeopathy and hydrotherapy. NDs (naturopathic doctors) can also order diagnostic tests and prescribe many conventional medications, and will use them when appropriate.

What is a Naturopathic Doctor?

Naturopathic Doctors (N.D.s) are licensed in Montana as primary care physicians who have received special training in natural medicine. To be licensed by the State of Montana, NDs must have a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from a licensed and accredited 4-year Naturopathic Medical School. Naturopathic Medical Schools have entrance requirements similar to those of any medical school, requiring and undergraduate degree and advanced coursework in the premedical sciences.
