These days modern naturopathic medicine is closely aligned with functional medicine where practitioners are trained in general and functional pathology and refer to the latest evidence-based research on herbal medicine, nutrition, diet and lifestyle. Consultations typically involve detailed questioning to help determine patterns of ill health and to get to the underlying causes. Naturopaths treat the cause, not just the presenting symptoms.
