Naturopathic and Conventionally Trained Doctors Work Together to Deliver Optimal Care for Some Patients



WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A growing number of naturopathic and conventionally trained doctors are working together to deliver optimal care for patients with certain health conditions. This is according to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), which today released a new FAQ with advice for consumers on how naturopathic and conventionally trained doctors work together, in partnership with the Institute for Natural Medicine (INM). Examples of patients who benefit include:

"These are situations in which naturopathic doctors excel, providing diagnostic approaches and treatments that complement those of conventionally trained doctors," said Michelle Simon, PhD, ND and Chair of the INM Board of Directors. "Patients benefit. But in addition, naturopathic and conventionally trained doctors who work together report that each practitioner learns from the other?opening up new possibilities for both and improving patient outcomes."

The complete FAQ, "How do naturopathic and conventionally trained doctors work together?" can be found here.
