Distance Learning for Naturopathic Physicians

The content is completely evidence based. It’s empirical from the perspective of the people who are actually practicing plant medicine within their communities. It gives one an opportunity to collaborate with leaders in the field, share ideas, and come to wholly different conclusions about what is effective for certain pathologies and certain conditions in people.

~ Kenneth Proefrock, N.M.D.
