What Are Naturopathic Doctors?

Unlike medical doctors, naturopathic doctors tend to have more individualized treatments and practice habits. So, while their education is standardized much like a medical doctor’s, a naturopathic doctor’s practice may reflect much of their clinical and life experience. Dr. Steinke prefers a holistic, individualized health-based approach to each person’s integral whole (physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental and lifestyle). This approach helps to determine a direction so the client may find a higher degree of health.
