Important Terms to Know About Naturopathic Physicians
Naturopathic physicians are doctors skilled in homeopathy, holistic medicine, and acupuncture, among other alternative medical practices. They recommend the use of herbs and natural health care practices as part of a branch of alternative medicine that is based on a holistic approach to therapy. Naturopathic physicians have NDs or NMDs (Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine) and may own their own practice or work in a clinical setting. Here are some important terms to know about naturopathy:

Naturopathy: This form of alternative medicine, based on the principles of vitalism, takes its roots from the vital energy or force that guides metabolism, reproduction, growth, and adaptation. This holistic approach to healing allows for the least invasive measures necessary to improve or relieve symptoms, which means unnecessary drugs or surgery are frowned upon.

Holistic Therapy: A branch of medicine that takes into account the body as a whole functioning unit.

Homeopathy: A form of alternative medicine where treatment of disease is given by small doses of natural substances that in a healthy person would show symptoms of disease.

Acupuncture: A form of disease or pain treatment whereby fine needles are placed at strategic points on the skin. This practice originated in ancient China, and according to traditional Chinese medicine, can correct imbalances in the flow of "qi" through meridians, or channels.

Bloodletting: The practice of withdrawing blood from a patient to cure illness or disease. This ancient medicine practice was thought to restore balance for good health. This was the single most common medical practice up to the late 19th century.

Naturopathic physicians must attend special medical schools geared toward practices of naturopathy. They may take courses in alternative medicine, holistic therapy, acupuncture, herbal remedies, and natural health care. Once licensed, they are officially NDs or NMDs. Special skills to possess include gentle bedside manner, proficiency in natural health care, and excellent communication skills.

Naturopathic physicians may offer a variety of naturopathic treatments for patients within a clinical setting, including homeopathy, therapeutic nutrition, hydrotherapy, and botanical medicines. One may specialize in acupuncture, while another may specialize in herbal remedies. Doctors in this field may offer natural remedies to cure anything from allergies and digestive problems to detoxification and cleansing. Weight loss and emotional support are two other areas where naturopathic healing is used.

Related sub categories include chiropractic care, alternative medicine, acupressure, and holistic practitioners. Professionals in each of these areas of medical care tend to down-play conventional medicine and use natural remedies to heal the body.

Patients can get in touch with naturopathic physicians by talking with their primary care doctor to get a referral. Doctors who specialize in naturopathy can provide a diagnosis for a patient, suggest natural treatment options, and give prevention tips and advice. A quality doctor will have a gentle bedside manner and offer holistic treatments within a calm, quiet setting.

They may have assistants on hand to help them in their daily practice. Additional services offered may include massage therapy, amino acid therapy, counseling, and detox programs. Some naturopathic physicians also sell natural health care products, such as vitamins and herbs, within the office.

Reputable naturopathic physicians should possess the proper licenses and certification, having attended a distinguished naturopathy school.
