Can you see a Naturopath at the same time as a Doctor?

 

It is highly beneficial to work with a Naturopath alongside a Doctor. Naturopaths have been  trained about specific medications and particular nutrient deficiencies they may cause and can help assist you accordingly. Prescriptions from a Naturopath do not interfere with your medications and Naturopaths will often refer to your doctor for updated blood test pathology, further investigations or other health-related referrals.
