F.A.Q.

Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving health and treating illness. Focusing on prevention and using natural substances and treatments, naturopathic doctors (NDs) support and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself.

The primary goal is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply treat or suppress the symptoms. The patient is seen as a whole person and the ND takes the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions into account when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.

Virtually all chronic and most acute conditions may benefit from treatment by naturopathic doctors. People of all ages can be helped.

Like a conventional doctor, dentist or chiropractor, naturopathic doctors must first complete pre-medical studies at university. A four year, full-time program in naturopathic medicine is then completed at an accredited naturopathic college. The first two years of study focus on basic medical sciences and diagnosis. The last two years concentrate on naturopathic principles and therapeutics, including extensive clinical practice in a supervised teaching clinic. To become licensed two sets of standardized NPLEX exams must be passed. Naturopathic doctors must take ongoing continuing educational courses to maintain their licenses.

At this time, naturopathic medicine is not covered by Saskatchewan Health, but the majority of extended health care plans include naturopathic medicine. Insured patients should contact their employer or insurance agent to see whether they are covered and for what amount.
