This informational publication informs patients about naturopathic physicians. They can be distributed in your practice or used to educate legislators. An excerpt follows:

A naturopathic physician (ND or NMD) is an expert in natural medicine. NDs blend natural, non-toxic therapies with current advancements in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care. They are committed to bringing cutting edge medical knowledge and tools to the resolution of their patients' health issues and to maintaining the agility necessary to create health solutions that can be uniquely tailored to each individual patient's needs. NDs partner with their patients and take the time to listen to their needs so that they feel part of the health care solution. NDs provide patients with the time, space and answers they need to feel cared for and supported.

Naturopathic physicians attempt to find the underlying cause of the patient's condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. For example, an ND focuses diagnosis and treatment on causal factors of congestion, such as a food allergy or an environmental factor, to prevent it instead of getting rid of the symptoms alone. NDs collaborate with all branches of medicine referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate. NDs are pledged to fostering individual and community health through the application of naturopathic principles.
