Naturopathic Doctors have the ability to make a very good and rewarding living helping people attain good health and wellness.
According to a survey done by the AANP (American Association Of Naturopathic Physicians), the average income of a Naturopathic Doctor or practitioner falls in the low to mid range of family practice doctors. The average salary is $80,000 per year, but the range can be anywhere from $40,000 to $200,000 per year. This, of course, depends on experience and specialization.
Twelve states and four provinces allow the practice of naturopathic medicine:
States: Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, Oregon, Utah, Vermont and Washington (as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands)
Provinces: British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan
Note: Many states are now considering naturopathic legislation, as the realization of having trained physicians in preventative medicine is making more and more sense.
