Naturopathic Medicine is a medical system that has evolved from a combination of traditional practices and health care approaches popular in Europe during the 19th century.
People visit naturopathic practitioners for various health-related purposes, including primary care, overall well-being, and treatment of illnesses. In the United States, naturopathic medicine is practiced by naturopathic physicians, traditional naturopaths, and other health care providers who also offer naturopathic services.
