Hi, there. I am 58 years old, and have been under Naturopathic care for the last eight years. I am well, and take no prescription medications, finding the regimen of herbs, and vitamins prescribed by my Naturopath to be wonderfully effective for the long term.
I think of Naturopathy as the "organic" arm of medicine, with pharmaceuticals akin to chemical fertilizers. I do know from my Naturopath, however, that she will prescribe drugs with great discretion. The new prescription capability means, however, that she can legally take a patient off of a synthetic medication, something she previously could not do. Since she has the training and experience to make that call, this is the greatest benefit to her, and her patients.
