How to Find a Naturopathic Doctor

Finding a naturopathic physician can be an intimidating chore if you have never done it before, but it can be well worth the effort. A naturopathic doctor is an important member of your health care team, which includes your general practice family doctor and any specialists which are required based on your particular case. A naturopath can add a valuable dimension to both prevention and cure.

I have been using a naturopath for the last 10 years, in concert with my family doctor, medical specialists, and chiropractor. In my experience, an ND has been critical to finding a workable hormone balance during my menopausal years. I know several people who have used naturopathic care to support their body system during courses of radiation and chemotherapy. Their quality of life during these procedures was greatly increased due to naturopathies.

Finding a naturopathic physician is as easy as opening your local phone book, or searching the web for your area. Better yet, talk to your friends and colleagues to get a referral. You can also ask this friend or colleague more details about their doctor and what to expect during an appointment.
