What is Naturopath?

Naturopathic clinic services include nutrition, treatment of specific diseases, and preventive care. Naturopaths work with nature as a guide and not to cure patients with prescription drugs or surgery. Naturopaths are medical practitioners who specialize in the care of nature. In order to practise naturopathic medicine, you need a master’s or doctoral degree in naturopathy and be an expert in natural healing. You will also need to be willing to work with patients who may not be healthy. Naturopaths should also be licensed through the State Board of Health, which will verify their education and training.Learn more about us at San Diego Naturopath

There are two types of naturopathic clinic services, traditional and holistic. A traditional clinic offers medication and surgery but is less focused on prevention. Holistic clinics offer holistic treatments, including alternative medicine and lifestyle changes. They treat their patients holistically by seeking to prevent disease, promote optimal health, and cure patients when they are already sick. In many cases, traditional clinics will work closely with naturopaths that specialize in holistic medicine.

If you are thinking about opening a naturopathic clinic, your state board of health may be able to direct you to qualified professionals in the field. Many state boards provide online applications that allow patients to request a list of certified and licensed medical practitioners and clinics. When you contact these doctors, be sure to ask if you can take a short tour in their facility. While this is not mandatory, it can be helpful to check to see if your prospective clinic staff are skilled at working with your patients and their families.
