"naturopathic doctors (NDs) are primary care physicians clinically trained in natural therapeutics and whose philosophy is derived in part from a Hippocratic teaching more than 2000 years old: vis medicatrix naturae -- nature is the healer of all diseases. Their practice is based on the same basic bio-medical science foundation that allopathic practice [...] the naturopathic medical profession endeavors to avoid unnecessary judgment of new methods and theories but rather to review them critically, embracing those which stand the test of time and scientific scrutiny";

"[regarding science] naturopathic programs include basic and clinical medical sciences [...] NDs study the same basic medical and clinical sciences as other healthcare professionals, such as MDs, DCs, DDSs, and RNs. These sciences lay the foundation for detailed history, intake, physical and laboratory diagnosis [...] is naturopathic medicine proven by science? Many naturopathic treatments have been researched and been proven safe and effective for numerous conditions [...] scientific examination of naturopathic methods is important, helping to bring clarity and refinement to the traditional and historical use of various therapies [...] there are also numerous randomized control trials and evidence‐based studies in the literature that have shown the efficacy of the approaches and modalities used in naturopathic medicine";
