The Institute for Natural Medicine actively supports Americans' greater use of natural approaches to health care. The INM's mission is to transform health care in America through the greater use of the principles and practices of naturopathic medicine.
The Institute for Natural Medicine is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization partnered with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Our mission is to transform healthcare in America by increasing both public awareness of naturopathic medicine and access to naturopathic doctors for patients. We believe that naturopathic medicine, with its unique principles and practices, has the potential to reverse the tide of chronic illness that overwhelms existing health care systems and to empower people to achieve and maintain their optimal lifelong health.
We strive to achieve this mission through a number of initiatives:
- Education - Reveal the unique benefits and outcomes of naturopathic medicine
- Access - Connect patients to licensed naturopathic doctors
- Research - Expand quality research of this complex and comprehensive system of medicine
INM also works to strengthen the field of naturopathic medicine from the inside by facilitating robust intra-professional communication, cultivating added residency and practice opportunities for NDs, and supporting alliance-building across health care professions. Our long-term vision includes supporting extended clinical studies that compare naturopathic medical care to conventional medical treatments.
