Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A newer wave of medicine is making its way here from the west coast.

Doctors at Prairie Naturopathic in Moorhead are trying to raise awareness during Naturopathic Medicine Week.

Naturopathic medicine uses more natural treatments that are cheaper and less invasive and focuses on the whole person.

Doctors say they look at the cause of illness, not just the symptoms.

They say this type of medicine is becoming more widespread now with more than 4,000 naturopathic doctors in the country.

Alli Svobodny, Prairie Naturopathic Doctors: “There's definitely some momentum being gained in terms of our profession. We've been around for a long, long time, but now they're starting to recognize our value in terms of health.”

Doctors at Prairie Naturopathic say there are only a few other people licensed here in the Fargo Moorhead area
