I am looking for someone to replace my current family MD.<br>
I found a Homeopatic pratitioner about 25 miles form me, a longer drive than I would like, but OK since I don't go to the doctor much anyway, and a Naturopath about 1 hour away, which is way too long of a drive for me.<br><br>
Which one would you choose, and why?<br>
Does anyone know of a good on-line directory to look for such pratitioners? I was just Yahoo searching, and going crazy to boot!

hi Tracey,<br>
A great resource to find naturopathic doctor's closer to you (if there are any) is aanp.org It is the professional organization for naturopaths and they have a great referral system. Are you looking for a PCP for your little one, or just adjunctive treatment? I would go with the naturopath if you want a PCP, the homeopath if you want extra alternative info.<br>
Hope this help!<br>

hi<br>
try <a href="http://www.naturopathic.org" target="_blank">www.naturopathic.org</a> to find a naturopathic doctor in your area who has attended 4-5 years of post graduate medical training.<br><br>
ND's are trained in the basic medical science and are licensed primary care physicians in 13 states. The modalities we are trained in include homeopathy, nutrition, botanical medicine, naturopathic manipulative therapy, hydrotherapy, counseling and more.<br><br>
hope this helps<br>
