How to Find Holistic Doctors

January 14, 2010

If you, like so many others, are struggling to find Doctors who have a more natural, less pharmaceutical, (at least more balanced) approach to supporting the body’s ability to heal itself.  Spend some time visiting these links.  You’ll be glad you did.  Leave some comments about your victories.

   Holistic Doctors

I’ve found two main ways to locate holistic doctors. The first and most fruitful way has been to contact some of the labs that do alternative medicine nutritional testing, and they have sent me lists of holistic doctors in my geographic area who utilize their testing services. Spectracell is the main alternative medicine lab where my family has had most of our testing done.

(There’s more information on these labs in my section on Nutritional Deficiency and Digestive Testing.)

The other way I’ve found holistic doctors has been to use the directories from the professional associations listed below. Some of the directories contain only holistic doctors, while others list practitioners in other holistic fields, such as N.D.s (doctors of naturopathy). I’ve found there is usually a lot of overlap between the doctors on the databases below and the doctor lists from the labs.

American College for Advancement in Medicine

American Academy of Environmental Medicine

American Preventive Medical Association

International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine

The site listed below has a directory of holistic doctors. You can search their web site online, or pay $15 for a printed directory:

American Holistic Medical Association

Naturopathic physicians (N.D.s) can be found through this site:

American Association of Naturopathic Physicians – the largest database of naturopathic physicians in the U.S., where U.S. residents can find a local naturopathic physician.

Nutritionists

I didn’t see any directory listing of local practitioners in the site below on Clinical Nutritionists, but it does give information about the CNC program.

International and American Associations of Clinical Nutritionists

The following site has an online directory of registered dietitians:

American Dietetic Association
