are naturopaths real doctors?

I earned my doctorate in naturopathic medicine (ND) from National College of Natural Medicine. NCNM is a four-year, fully accredited institution training primary-care physicians. After passing rigorous national examinations, I am licensed in the state of Oregon.

Naturopathic students study all the sciences you would expect any doctor to know, as well as pharmacology, minor surgery, basic clinical specialties and extensive clinical training. What distinguishes my medical education is the philosophy of getting to the root of your concerns plus intensive additional focus on the tools of natural medicine, which include herbs, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, nutrition, physical medicine and mind/body medicine.
