Detailed information on education requirements for Naturopathic Doctors. Not all states regulate all forms of alternative care and, unfortunately, there are those that fancy themselves providers of some kind without proper education and training. I feel this gives the realm of alternative care as a whole a bad wrap, as one bad experience spreads like wildfire among a community. If we hope to have alternative care accepted by the health community and covered by insurance we must be willing to put the work into knowing our craft. You as the client/patient deserve the best care available, regardless of what realm of care you choose. Please do your homework when looking into any alternative care to ensure you are receiving care by a qualified provider.
