Principles & Practice
Steeped in traditional healing practices, naturopathic medicine emphasizes holistic, preventive care. By focusing on prevention, optimal health and wellness, and diet and lifestyle as first-line interventions, naturopathic physicians educate and empower patients to take responsibility for their health.
As a naturopathic physician and graduate of UBSNM, you will not only help people optimize their health, you will change the way they think about health – for themselves, their families, and the planet.
Rooted in naturopathic philosophy, our goal is to train students to become physicians who are experts in individualized patient-centered care that focuses on disease prevention and optimization of health throughout the lifespan.
"Naturopathic medicine extends beyond what labs may reveal about a current physical state. Using a preventative eye, I assess labs with a narrower reference range which allows for detection of imbalance in the body before symptoms of discomfort may arise."
