Clinical Naturopathic Medicine

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Clinical Naturopathic Medicine is a foundation clinical text integrating the holistic traditional principles of naturopathic philosophy with the scientific rigour of evidence-based medicine (EBM) to support contemporary practices and principles.

The text addresses all systems of the body and their related common conditions, with clear, accessible directions outlining how a practitioner can understand health from a naturopathic perspective and apply naturopathic medicines to treat patients individually.

These treatments include herbal medicine, nutritional medicine and lifestyle recommendations. All chapters are structured by system and then by condition, so readers are easily able to navigate the content by chapter and heading structure. The content is designed for naturopathic practitioners and students (both undergraduate and postgraduate levels) and for medical and allied health professionals with an interest in integrative naturopathic medicine. Key Features

  • detailed coverage of naturopathic treatments provides readers with a solid understanding of the major therapeutic modalities used within naturopathic medicine
  • each system is reviewed from both naturopathic and mainstream medical perspectives to correlate the variations and synergies of treatment
  • only clinically efficacious and evidence-based treatments have been included
  • information is rigorously researched (over 7500 references) from both traditional texts and recent research papers
  • the content skilfully bridges traditional practice and EBM to support confident practitioners within the current health care system

A must have for nutritionists and naturopaths.


Clinical Naturopathic Medicine by Leah Hechtman is a professional tool for naturopaths and nutritionists or anyone who wants to take charge of their health. Some concepts and information it contains may be over the head of casual readers and it is really meant for practitioners and students of health sciences.

Excellent textbook for naturopaths


I am studying Naturopathy and this is my favourite textbook. Well written and comprehensive. I refer to it all the time. I would have preferred a hardback edition as it is a big & heavy book and paperback makes it quite unwieldy to handle. The online edition (included) is very useful and enables me to have the book with me on my iPad.



An excellent book with great extras


This is a textbook that I bought for my current studies in Naturopathy. It is a great book with so much information in it. The best part of it for me is that I was able to download an electronic copy of it for free. I have some problems with my vision and this enables me to enlarge the text to a size that I can easily read, with automatic pagination (a bit like a Kindle). I can also do searches easily. For a textbook that is a real help.
