Fantastic series geared toward holistic health
As a recent graduate, I have found ND Update to be extremely useful for following trends including clinical pearls, recent research, and practice administration geared to the health professional. The host Dr. Strickland is personable, humble, and he always seems to ask the questions that I’m thinking of. I find it worthwhile to download the episodes automatically & listen to them while running around or in the car.
Fantastic Resource for Naturopathic Students & Practitioners!!
The depth of insights shared on these podcasts is amazing!! There is a wealth of info for both the naturopathic medical student as well as the practitioner. Matthew's enthusiasm and dedication to the naturopathic profession is palpable and infectious! Keep up the great work!!
I’m such a fan!
I’ve been listening to The ND Update since I was in naturopathic medical school, and I continue to listen as a licensed ND. I found the episodes about boards, what to do after graduation, and starting a practice especially useful. Students and practitioners alike will find valuable information on this show. Matthew is a professional and enthusiastic host, and I am so grateful to him for putting together such a helpful resource!
