Naturopathic doctors look at you as a whole person, not as an illness. Naturopathic doctors understand that the body has strong natural defenses and the ability to heal itself, even from many serious conditions. Chronic illnesses occur when these protective mechanisms are not working properly. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are general medicine doctors who focus on restoring health and preventing disease.

Licensed naturopathic doctors are regulated at the state level to practice naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic medical students attend accredited, four-year, in-residence, naturopathic medical schools where they study biomedical sciences such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, and pharmacology. Their medical education incorporates the latest advances in science and natural approaches to illness prevention and management. Students complete a minimum of 4,100 hours of class and clinical training, including over 1,200 hours of hands-on, supervised, clinical training.

Like traditional medical doctors, NDs may choose to further specialize their care and/or work in cooperation with other disciplines.

  •  True health is not just personal. It’s social! It involves you, your neighbors, and your environment. Together we create solutions for a healthy California and work to extend this vision even further.

A naturopathic doctor can help you, whatever your health concerns.
Many acute and chronic health problems can be cured, others
significantly improved.

Poor diet, stress, lack of exercise, and a number of environmental toxins disrupt the body’s natural balance. NDs use a wide range of non-toxic therapies such as dietary change, nutritional supplementation, detoxification, homeopathy and herbs to strengthen the body. Following a naturopathic doctor’s guidelines is a sure path to better health, and often fully restores a patient’s well-being.

Naturopathic medicine combines the best of conventional medical diagnostic testing with alternative medicine treatments, allowing people to maximize health, minimize reliance on prescription drugs, and take active steps toward longer, healthier lives.
