Every two years, the Townsend Letter holds a competition for naturopathic students, faculty, clinicians, and practitioners to submit an article for our "Best of Naturopathic Medicine" competition. The first competition was held in 2003. Entries have been submitted by NDs and ND candidates from the National College of Natural Medicine, Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, Bastyr University, Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, National University of Health Sciences, and University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine. Since 2003 there has been more writing by naturopathic physicians in the Townsend Letter, reflecting the greater role that they are playing in proving functional, integrative, and complementary/alternative medicine.
The Best of Naturopathic Medicine articles from 2003 through 2013 are listed below. Each of these issues is available for ordering from the Townsend Letter.
