Naturopathic Medicine : Essentials & Peculiarities

Watershed Wellness podcast

Jun 2 2022 • 21 mins


In this episode, I continue my conversation with Dr. Melinda Nickels, ND, LAc, this time discussing some specifics about Naturopathic medicine, and her focus on homeopathic treatment.

Naturopathic medicine is a diverse system that includes many modalities - this episode will get you started in understanding it. But, if you want more information, check out the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, or this page created by National University of Natural Medicine, where Melinda and I both went to medical school.

We discuss the scope of practice available for NDs in Oregon and then discuss some of the peculiar features of natural medicine treatment, including why sometimes a patient gets worse before they get better.

Enjoy and as always, submit your questions or ideas on our website.
