What to Expect During an Initial Naturopathic Consultation

During the initial one hour consultation, the ND will take a thorough history so that the underlying issues surrounding your condition or concern can be addressed. A physical examination with clothes on (not internal) will also aid the ND in ascertaining what path to take. The ND will then determine which lifestyle, nutritional, herbal, homeopathic or other types of therapy may best suit your case at which point a joint decision with you will be made as to how best to proceed.

The follow-up visits are usually ½ hour in length and the 2nd visit will usually be within 3-4 weeks of the initial consultation. During that time the ND may ask you to get blood tests or other information gathering as well as start the initial treatment protocol. During the second visit a full plan is usually completed and you will generally not need to return for at least another month.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Are the services of a Naturopathic Doctor covered by insurance?

Many private and company health insurance plans cover naturopathic treatments. Patients and employers are encouraged to request that their policy include coverage of all naturopathic services.

What is the difference between a Homeopathic and a Naturopathic Doctor?

A Homeopathic Practitioner uses only a homeopathic approach. Naturopathic Doctors, on the other hand, use homeopathic medicine as one of the therapies integrated into a total treatment plan. NDs are the only health care professionals trained in homeopathy as part of their standard educational program and are examined in homeopathy for licensing purposes.

How are Naturopathic Doctors in Ontario trained?

Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine have a minimum of 7 years of training: 3 to 4 years of premedical studies at a university followed by the 4 year intensive full time program at an accredited college of Naturopathic Medicine. The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto is the only one in Canada (there are 4 colleges in North America).

After graduating from one of these colleges, the Ontario ND must pass rigorous North American-wide standardized licensing exams to obtain a license. NDs in Ontario are regulated by the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy-Naturopathy.
