NDVerify.com was created to enable prospective patients the ability to verify that they are seeking out a qualified Naturopathic Physician.  In states that do not license Naturopathic Physicians, the titles Naturopath, Naturopathic Doctor, or Naturopathic Physician are often used by individuals that were not properly trained at an accredited 4-year naturopathic medical school.  There are many distance learning schools that have self study programs of 200 to 700 hours that claim to offer degrees in naturopathic medicine, which opens the door in unlicensed states for just about anyone to refer to themselves as a naturopathic doctor.  Even though someone completing one of these courses may be a wonderful healer, a student completing 200 hours of self study canít possibly have the same level of training as someone completing 4,500 hours of classroom and clinical training.  It is also important to verify the naturopathic credentials of a Medical Doctor (MD), Osteopathic Doctor (DO), or a Chiropractor (DC) if they are also calling themselves an ND.  Believe it or not, it is common that a Medical Doctor or Chiropractor will do a short self study course so that they can start calling themselves a Naturopathic Physician.
