Welcome to NHAND
The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution designating October 7 – 13 as Naturopathic Medicine Week. The resolution recognizes the value of having a national awareness week for naturopathic medicine. It provides “safe, effective, and affordable health care” and encourages Americans to learn about the role of naturopathic physicians in preventing chronic and debilitating conditions.
NHAND is proud to be sponsored by

What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a branch of medicine that believes that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and focuses on the underlying cause of disease. NDs utilize many different modalities, including herbs, vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic physical medicine and nutritional counseling, as well as having a pharmaceutical formulary of their own. NDs may also specialize in certain modalities or health conditions.
What is a Naturopathic Doctor?
Naturopathic Doctors have been licensed as primary care doctors in New Hampshire since 1995. They offer the widest array of complementary and alternative medical services available in healthcare today. In order to become a licensed ND, the state of New Hampshire requires that an applicant be a graduate of an accredited Naturopathic medical school and has passed all state and national required board examinations.
