A study of medicine based on the physiological pathways of the body’s own ability of healing.  Often ND’s will study homeopathy, nutrition, acupuncture and essential oils.  The main difference is that they will utilize products to assist the natural pathways of detoxification and elimination to assist the body’s natural elimination of the “DIS-EASE”.  The belief is that the body made the “dis-ease” as a means to control the disruption to function and natural flow of the body and that we can utilize the natural physiological pathways to eliminate the need  for the “dis-ease.”
