The Practitioner’s Journey by Dan Clements and Tara Gignac, ND
I read this book years after I finished Naturopathic medical school and I remembered thinking “how did the authors know exactly what I was feeling when I first graduated?” This book details the common journey that all (complementary) healthcare professionals share as we go from student to doctor, and offers wisdom and clarity to our own unique roads along the way.
Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds by Jenny McCarthy
This book is so passionate, honest and inspiring as you hear the stories and triumphs of parents who believe in natural healthcare for a disease such as autism that comes in so many different shades and affects us all, but is not well understood by conventional medicine. Instead, the parents and complementary healthcare providers have shifted their thinking to treating the children, and not the disease, and have achieved great medical success.
The Revolution of Naturopathic Medicine: Remaining True to Our Philosophy by Daniel M. Block
This book was given to me as a 1st year naturopathic medical student and I treasure it to this day. It discusses the roots of the profession and our philosophy, and helped me understand why this profession has withstood the medical tests of our time, remaining true to our roots, and is so necessary for our healthcare system.
