Montana Naturopathic Physicians

Licensed as primary care physicians, Montana's ND community are dedicated professionals who combine nature's wisdom with the rigor of modern medical science. Engaging with a ND means you will focus on comprehensive diagnosis, proactive prevention and effective natural therapies. By using treatments that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate your inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping you heal both your internal and external environments.

Naturopathic physicians work in private practice, in hospitals and clinics and in community health centers. Accountable and qualified, NDs undergo rigorous graduate-level naturopathic medical education and supervised training in federally accredited naturopathic medical colleges. To be eligible for licensure, a graduate ND must pass the NPLEX (Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examination),  in order to be regulated by state or US territory as health-care practitioners. 

Naturopathic medicine has something to offer very heath condition. NDs are prevention specialists! Start your kids off right with personalized nutrition advice; learn how to adjust your own habits to reduce your risks. Among the ailments naturopathic physicians treat are chronic conditions like allergies, pain syndromes, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, women's health conditions, men's health conditions, child-specific conditions, adrenal dysfunction, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as acute illnesses like colds and flu. NDs can perform minor surgeries, such as removing cysts or closing superficial wounds. NDs are fully educated and experience supervised training in the therapeutic use prescription drugs; in Montana your ND may prescribe certain medications you may require. However, the emphasis of naturopathic medicine is patient education, self care and prevention and the  safe, effective therapeutic use of natural healing agents. 

You will be assessed in all the familiar and appropriate ways, through physical exam, testing of body fluids or cells, or diagnostic imaging. Your ND may also offer specialty testing. You will be educated about your diagnosis and your doctor's thinking regarding your plan of care. You will be a full partner in your healing process. Your naturopathic physician will always optimize your nutrition with whole food choices as well as vitamin, mineral, amino acid and fatty acid supplements. Your treatment may include botanical tinctures or teas; you may benefit from infusion or injection therapy or a homeopathic prescription. A naturopathic physician will employ cognitive behavioral therapies or teach you relaxation techniques or therapeutic breathing if these make sense for you. Your ND can act as a gatekeeper on your health care support team when your best interests are served by referral to a medical specialist, an acupuncturist, a yoga teacher or a surgeon.   Your ND will collaborate with your whole health care team in order to serve your needs thoroughly and effectively.
