What is the difference between a homeopath and a naturopath?
A Naturopathic Doctor uses homeopathy as one of the therapies that may be integrated into the total treatment plan, according to your case. A homeopathic practitioner uses only homeopathy. NDs are the only health-care professionals who are examined in homeopathy for licensing purposes.
