What is a Naturopathic Doctor?

In Utah, Naturopathic Doctors play a pivotal role in addressing your healthcare needs. Here’s a concise overview: 

Holistic Integrative Approach: Naturopathic medicine integrates modern medical knowledge with time-tested traditional medicines, emphasizing holistic wellness to prevent diseases and treat acute and chronic conditions effectively. 

Root Cause Focus: At the heart of naturopathic medicine is the pursuit of optimal health and well-being by addressing the root causes of illness, rather than solely alleviating symptoms.

Comprehensive Care: In addition to providing expert guidance on natural medicine, Naturopathic Doctors in Utah have the authority to prescribe medications and order necessary tests, ensuring all aspects of your health are addressed. 

Thorough Evaluation: During your appointment, your Naturopathic Doctor will typically discuss your goals, medical history, diet, and lifestyle, and conduct a physical exam along with lab work. They may also consider advanced specialty testing and other health factors such as your mental health, sleep patterns, toxic exposures, and digestion.

Licensure and Continuous Education: Naturopathic Doctors in Utah undergo rigorous training from accredited schools, including a residency, and are licensed by the Utah Department of Professional Licensure (DOPL). Committed to ongoing education, they stay updated with the latest healthcare advancements.

Specialty Care: Some Naturopathic Doctors further specialize in areas such as bioidentical hormones, women’s health, digestive care, and environmental medicine.

Community Involvement: Naturopathic Doctors are actively engaged in community outreach, promoting health and wellness through education and empowerment.

As experts in natural medicine, Naturopathic Doctors are dedicated to supporting your journey to optimal health, providing personalized, comprehensive care tailored to meet your unique needs and empower you to live your healthiest life.

Before seeking care, verify a provider’s licensure through the DOPL for transparency and confidence in healthcare services. Members of the UANP listed on our website have undergone thorough verification of active licensure in Utah.

What Do Naturopathic Doctors Do?

We believe that food is medicine. Most NDs integrate nutritional recommendations into every treatment plan. Nutritional deficiencies are considered an “obstacle to cure” – meaning, the body can heal more quickly when deficiencies are corrected.

NDs utilize conventional blood tests and imaging alongside functional diagnostic testing to look for the root cause of symptoms disease.

NDs utilize a variety of treatments, including herbal medicine, physical medicine, dietary modifications, injection therapies, homeopathy, and more.

NDs are licensed to prescribe medication in Utah. We are guided by the principle of primum non nocere meaning “first, do no harm” – sometimes this means using a prescription instead of (or in addition to) natural treatments. 

NDs are not considered primary care doctors by insurance plans in Utah. Some NDs do the majority of primary health care for their patients, while others may specialize in a particular condition or type of treatment.

We believe that healthcare works best when we work as a team. NDs refer to patients’ primary care doctors and other specialists as appropriate.
