The origin of naturopathic medicine, sometimes called "naturopathy," goes back thousands of years, drawing on the healing wisdom of many cultures including Indian (Ayurvedic), Chinese (Taoist), Greek (Hippocratic), Arabian, Egyptian, and European (monastic medicine) traditions
The earliest doctors and healers worked with herbs, foods, water, fasting, and tissue manipulation — gentle treatments that do not obscure the body's own healing powers. Today's naturopathic physicians continue to use these therapies as their main tools and to advocate a healthy dose of primary prevention. In addition, modern NDs conduct and make practical use of the latest biochemical research involving nutrition, botanicals, homeopathy, and other natural treatments.
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of medicine that emphasizes prevention and the use of natural therapeutics to support health. Naturopathic Medicine was developed in the United States over 100 years ago and has evolved into an integrative system of medicine that combines cutting edge diagnostic techniques and non-invasive therapies with an ancient philosophy of healing that draws on the holistic relationship of the body to nature.
