This is a quote by Dr. Weil, in response to a question from a CA resident, from his web site http://www.drweil.com:

“Having spent most of my professional career working with healthcare providers all over the world from the conventional, alternative, and complementary professions, I value the critical role that NDs play in the emerging field of Integrative Medicine. At the Program in Integrative Medicine here at the University of Arizona, NDs are an essential part of the formula for health system renewal. In the 12 states with naturopathic licensure, MDs and NDs are working collaboratively to meet the unique needs of their patients. They regularly involve providers from other disciplines, such as chiropractic and acupuncture, in coordinating their patients? treatment plans.
