The mission of the Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians is to support our members and improve the health of Oregonians through the advancement of Naturopathic Medicine.
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are an excellent choice for your Primary Care Physician. They are trained in both natural and conventional medicine and have a comprehensive scope of practice.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct method of primary health care that combines centuries old natural, common-sense therapies with current advances in biomedical and diagnostic sciences covering all aspects of health, from prenatal to geriatric care.
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are guided by principals that are based on the premise that healing is intrinsic to the nature of living organisms. The principles:
While Oregon NDs are licensed to prescribe all pharmaceuticals needed in primary care, can perform minor surgery and can even deliver babies, the real specialty of Naturopathic Doctors lies in treating you as the complex, inter-related system that you are (a whole person), rather than as just a series of symptoms.
If you are being treated by a Naturopathic Physician, congratulations! You are on your way to optimal health!
If not, let us help you find one today. Your health will certainly benefit from it!
