Principles and Practices of Naturopathic Medicine is written specifically for the student of naturopathic medicine, whether the 'student' is enrolled in a formal course of study or simply has a keen interest in health sciences. Designed to comply with the curriculum standards established by the Council of Naturopathic Education (CNME), this book will enable students of naturopathic medicine to complete the formative part of their basic training in a shorter period of time, allowing them to enter their clinical training with increased confidence, while encouraging them in their efforts at self-study and, ultimately, life-long learning. Practicing physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals will also find this book a useful reference. Because the book covers the basic therapies involved in this healing profession and follows a systems and disease oriented approach to medicine, it will be useful as a clinical companion.
