What is a Naturopathic Doctor

By Dr. Alexsia Priolo (she/her), Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Alexsia Priolo ND from West End Mamas explains what a naturopathic doctor is and how one can help.

What is a naturopathic doctor?

Naturopathic doctors are primary health providers using both natural and conventional medicine to help you achieve your health goals. As previously mentioned we use a wide variety of tools to help you achieve this. One of the main differences between us and medical doctors is that we actually don’t use pharmaceuticals. However, that doesn’t mean that we are against pharmaceuticals. They are definitely needed for a wide variety of conditions and so if you are taking any pharmaceuticals we are happy to work integratively with your medical other health care providers in helping you achieve your health goals.

Taking care of yourself doesn't have to be hard
