Naturopathy differs from traditional allopathic medicine in that it treats the cause of disease rather than the symptoms of disease. Most allopathic physicians, M.D. or D.O., treat the patient for specific symptomatic relief through pharmaceutical medicine. A naturopathic doctor, N.D. or N.M.D., treats the patient for specific causes through homeopathic medicines, many of which come from Europe. The difference is solving the problem so that a cure is affected versus treating symptoms for perhaps a lifetime of prescription medications.
