What are naturopathic doctors trained to do? Do they prescribe medications? Or do they only use herbs and homeopathy? Most people are surprised to learn that we are trained extensively in pharmacology and are trained to prescribe pharmaceuticals as well as nutrients and herbs. We are also trained to do all basic physical exams and we are trained to collaborate and refer to other medical specialties. We are trained to be primary care doctors with a holistic focus.
In this video, I discuss training for naturopathic physicians. How it differs from both the training recieved by medical doctors and the training recieved by tradidtional naturopaths.
