A growing number of medical, paramedical and social professionals find the naturopathic approach offers a new way of looking at illness.

In sports clubs, rejuvenation centers, and thalassatherapy centers, naturopathic practitioners offer complimentary services centered on prevention and education.
Education and Training
There is an increasing demand for therapists to work in schools, and in businesses as diverse as restaurants, cooperatives, daycare providers, and retirement homes. These jobs vary greatly. Some may involve giving regular courses or occasional lectures to employees. Others may involve mentoring, organizing internships, or thematic retreats.
Because of the increasing interest in alternative medicine, newspapers and magazines may seek columnists or stand alone articles.
