At Sacred Healing Arts,
Our naturopathic physicians listen, educate, empower and serve. We provide an individualized holistic approach to creating vibrant wellness by combining the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Steeped in traditional healing principles and practices, it is the naturopathic physician's role to identify and remove barriers to optimal health by creating an internal and external environment which supports a person’s innate healing process.
What is a Naturopathic Physician?
A licensed naturopathic physician (ND) attends a graduate level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all respects as a general practice MD. In addition, a naturopathic physician is required to complete extensive studies in clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology and counseling, naturopathic philosophy, and holistic nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and wellness optimization. A naturopathic physician takes national standard professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care for the whole family – a philosophy, art, science and practice of preventing, diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions of the mind, body, emotions and spirit. Our physicians specialize in natural childbirth education, prenatal, labor and delivery, post partum, and neonatal care, pediatrics, and women’s health.
Promotion of wellness and prevention of disease are emphasized through educational empowerment, encouragement and guidance to adopt a lifestyle which is conducive to optimal health.
