What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine seems like an odd term unless you know that conventional medicine is really allopathic medicine "the use of pharmacologically active agents or physical interventions to treat or suppress symptoms." In comparison, Naturopathic Medicine engages with the normal healing process of a person's body.

The NIH would classify me as a Naturopathic Physician, a term Maine doesn't allow, I'm a Naturopathic Doctor here. Except in the yellow pages (remember those?)
