20th annual convention of US naturopathic physicians convenes Aug. 24, 2005 in Phoenix

Meeting Set for August 24 27, 2005
Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, AZ

WHO: The nation's top naturopathic physicians are convening in Phoenix to discuss the latest developments in this branch of the complementary and alternative medicine field, and hold their annual convention.

WHERE and WHEN: The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians' (AANP) 20th Annual Convention & Exposition will be held August 24-27, 2005 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, AZ. Research presentations will be offered daily throughout the conference.

WHY: A growing number of Americans are turning to naturopathic care to replace or augment the care they receive from conventional medical practitioners. A 2004 patient survey conducted by the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges (AANMC) found that patients stated that their primary reason for seeking naturopathic care was to gain more control over their health.

Naturopathic medicine is not new. Hipocrates, a physician who lived some 2400 years ago, is considered the earliest predecessor of naturopathic care. His teachings emphasized "nature is healer of all diseases" from which he created the concept vis medicatrix naturae, the "healing power of nature." This concept has been at the core of medicine in many cultures and is a central theme of naturopathic physician care in the United States.

Conventional and naturopathic care differ in three important ways. First, in conventional medical care, each condition requires its own specialist and types of medication. By contrast, naturopathic medical care treats the entire person, not just the "complaint." Prescription medication is not generally used. Secondly, naturopathic physicians believe that prevention is the best cure. Finally, the cornerstone of naturopathic medical care is the belief that the body can do a great deal to heal itself and restore it to its optimum state. Restoring
