Both are primary care providers. Naturopathic doctors do not prescribe antibiotics or medications that treat acute concerns that require immediate attention. Otherwise naturopathic doctors treat the same conditions as your family medical doctor, treatment can be an alternative or in many causes integrative. Integrative means a patient will be using conventional and naturopathic treatment together to reach their health goals.
