What is a Naturopathic Doctor? Part 5 Prescriptions, Surgery and Vaccines
Are naturopathic doctors all anti-vax? Do they believe in surgery? Are they opposed to prescription medications? Actually no.
Naturopathic physicians view all healthcare approaches on a contiuum. We are trained to give vaccinations, perform minor surgery, refer for major surgery, and prescribe basic pharmaceutical medications. Wheather or not a naturopathic physician actually does these things depends on their specialty, their personal philosophy and the medical laws in the state in which they practice.
