Our Naturopathic Doctors

Our Naturopathic doctors (ND) are licensed health care practitioners who have graduated from a four-year, postgraduate naturopathic medical school and passed an extensive postdoctoral board examination (NPLEX).  It is the Naturopathic doctor’s role to assess the body as a whole and identify and remove barriers to good health. The body is a complex, integrated system which is affected by our environment, emotions, genetics, dietary and lifestyle factors. 

The Naturopathic doctors at Naturally Well will consider the multiple factors which may contribute to your health concerns, and will provide an individualized treatment plan which will encourage a healing internal and external environment, and will help you to reach your personal health goals.
