Naturopathic Philosophy | Whitefish Montana
Naturopathic Doctors (ND’s) from accredited four-year medical school institutions are trained to be primary care physicians blending scientific knowledge and medical training with the healing power and wisdom of nature. They are trained in all the same sciences, diagnostic techniques, and clinical skills as medical doctors with an emphasis on natural therapies.
Doctor means teacher. It is also the doctor’s job to help each person discover his or her own healthy balance, creating the proper environment for healing and continued vibrant health. The goal of natural medicine is not simply to palliate, although this may be a necessary step at certain times, but above all to discover where the imbalance that created the illness arose, so that the problem may be corrected and prevented in the future.
The truth is eloquently simple – clean air and water, good food, adequate rest, a balanced psyche, and correction of current and past insults to the body result in the restoration of health.
