"Naturopathic medicine is rooted in the belief that the body's innate capacity for healing is the best possible medicine and that illness presents when obstacles stand in the way of that healing process. An obstacle may be a pathogen like a bacteria or virus out of balance in the body, a specific nutrient level or overall nutrition being too low, the stress of a fast-paced lifestyle leading to digestive imbalance, a loss of a loved one or other kinds of loss. Visits with Naturopathic doctors are generally longer than visits with conventional medical doctors, with extra time spent gathering physical, mental and emotional, social, and environmental aspects of your history and getting to know more about you as an individual. Treatment modalities that are utilized often include dietary changes, herbal and supplement recommendations, lifestyle or daily routine changes, and bodywork or musculoskeletal adjustments. Naturopathic doctors attend 4-year doctorate programs that include conventional medical subjects, diagnostic procedures, and pharmacology, and their education and training qualify them to practice as licensed primary care providers in 22 states"
