"What drew me initially to naturopathic medicine was the emphasis on prevention of diseases through lifestyle and diet changes. Naturopathic doctors can help decrease the burden on the current healthcare system by providing patients the opportunity to discuss their health concerns, prioritize, and set goals for managing their concerns. The nature of our profession fosters an environment where individualized care is heavily emphasized so that the patient's lifestyle, preference, and values are prioritized to ensure compliance and satisfaction. Ideally, naturopathic doctors work alongside other healthcare professionals as a part of the patient's healthcare team. An integrated healthcare system allows for patient-centered care where ALL patients' concerns are addressed; by collaborating with each other, not only are all healthcare providers involved fully informed of their professional counterparts' involvement, but are also better able to distribute and collaborate on patient concerns."
