Who we are
The Gastroenterology Association of Naturopathic Physicians are a group of dedicated practitioners specialized in the treatment of digestive disorders using the principles of naturopathic medicine coupled with the latest evidenced-based research. We have come together to build a community of like-minded naturopathic physicians and students to share research, clinical knowledge, practice tips and other relevant topics within this body of knowledge. Through the use of our community forum, monthly webinars, podcasts, and document library we provide useful information with direct application of the treatment of digestive disorders in clinical practice.
The Gastroenterology Association of Naturopathic Physicians is committed to advancing the philosophy, science, research and practice of naturopathic gastroenterology by serving as the world’s leading resource for information on the unique perspective that naturopathic medicine brings to the understanding and treatment of gastrointestinal disease and dysfunction.
