Naturopathic Doctors treat all medical conditions and can provide both individual and family health care. 

The difference between an MD and an ND is that a Naturopathic Doctor often takes a more holistic approach and will seek out natural remedies first before moving to prescription drugs.  They can prescribe these medications if necessary, however, and can also provide traditional care such as yearly check-ups, treatment for common illnesses and more.

Many parents exclusively choose naturopathic care for their babies, while some use it as a complement to other pediatric care to broaden their options for treatment.
