Before attending your first visit you will fill out an intake form for the naturopathic doctor. The intake form will ask you questions about your health, such as what are your health concerns and goals, do you have any current illnesses or diagnoses, do you take any medications or supplements, do any of your family members have any health conditions, how is your sleep, energy, stress, what does your typical diet look like, do you exercise, and some other questions.
You may be wondering how does someone become a naturopathic doctor? What is their training? Are they licensed? And, how is the profession regulated?
To become a naturopathic doctor, you need to graduate from an accredited naturopathic institution. But, before that, you need to complete a 3- or 4-year undergraduate degree from a recognized university.
