Welcome to NDI's Family
Natural Doctors International is the oldest naturopathic global health organization in North America. Our work of more than a decade has brought integrative healthcare to the underserved by providing an opportunity for naturopathic physicians, licensed acupuncturists, integrative MDs, nurses and other health care practitioners the opportunity to serve and collaboration wtih our larger global community.
Our policy work creats a space for dialogue on the value of naturopathic, integrative and traditional medicine in global health policy and has been integral to the formation of the World Naturopathic Federation. Our collaborative model promotes responsible volunteerism and brings together change makers working towards solutions to health - mind, body, spirit, individual, community, planet.
Since 2005, NDI has collaborated with the Nicaraguan Government, MINSA, and the local community of Ometepe, to run a naturopathic clinic. That clinic has provided over 25,000+ patients free naturopathic integrative primary medical care by volunteer naturopathic physicians and CAM providers and donated $500,000 USD of medicines. Our CE course, Global Health in Natural Medicine, has graduated more than 500 students and physicians and remains the leading course within its field to train students, interns and physicians in global medicine.
