Clinical Naturopathic Medicine is a foundation clinical text that integrates the holistic traditional principles of Naturopathic philosophy with the scientific justification of evidence-based medicine to support modern-day practices and principles. There is a focus on all systems of the body, related conditions and clear, accessible directions that outline how a practitioner can understand health from a Naturopathic perspective and apply Naturopathic medicines to treat patients individually. It is arranged by system at a macro level and arranged by condition within each chapter, enabling ease of access so that readers are able to find the same type of information about a body system or condition within any given chapter. Heading hierarchies are consistent across all chapters to facilitate this organisation.
