You’re probably thinking to yourself: Naturopath? Shouldn’t I just visit a fortune teller and peer into a crystal ball instead?

This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, naturopaths are educated with the same background as medical doctors; they simple choose to apply a holistic approach to medicine, using nutrition, acupuncture, and other natural treatments.
