Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is based on six principles:
What kind of training do Naturopathic Doctors receive?
Are you Medical Doctors?
No, we are not MDs. We are naturopathic doctors (ND).
In Pennsylvania we work as a consultant to address your health concerns with a comprehensive and holistic approach. We use preventive and natural medicine to address the roots of your health challenges and help you achieve your goals. We can confer with your primary care doctor and local team of healthcare professionals if required.
Accredited Naturopaths currently have a bill before the State of PA legislature to license Naturopathic Doctors who graduated from accredited four (4) year Naturopathic medical schools.
Do you prescribe medications?
No. Even though we are trained in pharmacology, we are not licensed in PA to prescribe medications. We focus on natural, non-toxic, non-invasive methods to address your health concerns.
Do you take insurance?
No. Currently the state of PA does not yet recognize Naturopathic doctors as physicians. Pennsylvania naturopaths are currently working on getting licensure passed for Naturopathic Medicine in PA. Once licensure is passed, insurance billing can be pursued.
We provide every patient with an itemized receipt after each consultation. We encourage you to submit it to your insurance for reimbursement anyway (some patients do receive coverage), and of course, contact your local representative.
