Our purpose at Naturae’s Path is to reconnect our clients with their own Vis Medicatrix Naturae (the Healing Power of Nature). That is, we strive to develop for you an individualized health care plan that is designed to awaken the inherent healing power of nature that already exists within you.
We utilize state of the art laboratory testing, individualized dietary plans, plant based medicines, bio-identical hormones, homeopathic medicines, food allergy/intolerance testing, lifestyle modifications, and a variety of other safe, non-invasive, natural medicine based modalities to accomplish this.

Our intention is to assist you in the restoration of optimal health and vitality on all levels: mentally, emotionally, and physically.

What is a naturopathic doctor? What’s the difference between an ND and MD?
A licensed naturopathic doctor (ND) attends a four-year, graduate-level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an MD, but also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic physician also studies clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling. A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional (basic science and clinical) board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice doctor.
