Inside Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is one of many areas of alternative medicine. Those who are pursuing an education in medical and health professions may choose to focus on naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic doctors treat their patients through methods of natural healing, such as fasting, osteopathy, acupuncture, shiatsu and more. Common ailments treated include chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalances. These physicians avoid using chemicals, drugs or surgical procedures.

Education Information

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), educational requirements can vary for those practicing naturopathic medicine, but formal education is often a must (www.bls.gov).
