Naturopathic Training

What is the Education of a Naturopathic Physician? Naturopathic physicians must have an undergraduate degree including premedical courses before attending a four-year graduate level medical program from an accredited Naturopathic medical school. Their education includes all the convention sciences such as medical pathology, physical diagnosis, and laboratory diagnosis, as well as, Naturopathic modalities which include botanical medicine, homeopathy, clinical nutrition, physical medicine, counseling, and hydrotherapy. Naturopathic physicians are also trained in pharmacology, minor surgery, and cooperate with all other branches of medical practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.

Can I Afford Naturopathic Care?
Naturopathic medicine is extremely cost-effective. There can be high health care costs associated with long-term symptomatic relief. However, by treating the underlying cause of illness, health care costs are significantly reduced. Preventative care ensures lower health care costs for you and your family. Some insurance providers may reimburse for Naturopathic Medical Care.

A majority of insurance companies consider my service out of network, once their deductible is paid, many patients are re-imbursed 80% of health care service. Fees are paid in full at the time of service but a majority of the time are re-imbursed. This is good news to Integrative medicine and Naturopathic Services. Check with your individual policy if you have any questions.
