About Dr. Rose
Dr. Katie Rose found naturopathic medicine the hard way- after coming to a point in her own health where her conventional physicians said they had “reached the end of the road” in their treatment options. The irony was that this statement marked the beginning the road leading Dr. Rose to a career devoted to getting to the root cause of disease and utilizing compassionate medicine that treats the whole person. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences at The University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ, she continued her education at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ with an emphasis in women's health and pediatrics. She now practices in Tucson, AZ. Her interests outside of medicine include gardening, cooking, enjoying the outdoors and of course- the Arizona Wildcats.
What is a Naturopath?
A naturopathic physician (NMD) is a primary care physician clinically trained in conventional medical sciences with an emphasis on holistic preventative care. The goal of a naturopath is to find and eliminate the root cause of a patient's symptoms while educating, inspiring and empowering the patient to reach optimal health.
In Arizona, naturopathic doctors are licensed and regulated by the State of Arizona Naturopathic Physicians Medical Board. Physicians must have graduated from an accredited four-year, graduate-level naturopathic medical school and pass national board examinations.
The scope of practice in Arizona includes limited prescription privileges, minor surgery, diet and nutrition counseling, homeopathy, acupuncture, botanical medicine, environmental medicine, nutrient IV therapy, physical manipulation and other physiotherapy modalities.
