Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of primary healthcare that addresses the root causes of illnesses, and promotes health and healing using natural therapies. With a well established history, and support from an increasing body of evidence-based research, it offers results not available through conventional means, making it an important choice in Manitoba's healthcare system.
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) have a minimum of seven years of post-secondary education, including 3 years of university pre-medical sciences and four years post-graduate training at an accredited naturopathic medical school. Rigorous international and provincial examinations must also be passed before licensing can occur. Continuing education throughout their careers is also mandatory.
