Who We Are

WE ARE AN INTERNATIONAL PROJECT OF NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIANS, HEALTHCARE PRACTITIONERS, AND ACADEMIC COLLEAGUES dedicated to supporting the goal of healthy individuals and healthy populations through effective, whole-person-focused primary care — or more simply stated 'whole person care' — designed to support health by restoring balance, rather than by suppressing the symptoms of illness. Naturopathic physicians are well-schooled in many diverse therapeutic modalities, with expertise that integrates many healing practices into the restoration of health. By articulating the naturopathic philosophy, principles, and clinical theory that underlie practice, we seek to address the question: How does any therapeutic intervention support the goal of restoring health and integrate with the overall objective of the naturopathic physician?
