Breaking new ground for naturopathic medicine is nothing new for National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), now celebrating its 61st year as the “Mothership” of North American naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Kirsten Wright’s first encounter with naturopathic medicine was when several of her family members failed to find relief from conventional care and turned to alternative treatment for their autoimmune conditions.
Dr. Amy Bader always tells people that she didn’t choose naturopathic medicine, it chose her. She stumbled upon the field while she was in the process of applying to conventional medical school. When she was young, Dr. Bader’s mother was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Her family pursued a wide variety of approaches. Dr. Bader believes this is what led her to have an open mind about medicine.
