What is a Naturopathic Doctor? Part 4: Scope of Practice
What does a naturopathic doctor do? The answer is surprisingly complex. Not only do ND's often specialize in different body systems, but they may also specialize in various types of treatments (like physical medicine, nutrition, herbs or homeopathy). In addition to various specialties, naturopathic scope of practice is greatly impacted by the difference in laws regulating naturopathic medicine from state to state.
