Alex PI had the pleasure of interviewing my husband Alex Poptodorov regarding his journey to pursuing his N.D. Degree. I am excited to be bringing this interview to our Mother Earth News readers to provide some insight into Naturopathic Medicince and why he chose this field.

At one point you wanted to practice Western medicine. What created the shift in your life and why did you decide to pursue the Holistic route instead?

There were two main reasons. One is that I always had an affinity for health and vitality. I admired people who looked strong and lived the healthy lifestyle.

The second reason was when my health started to fail. I had anxiety, panic attacks and was officially diagnosed as bipolar.

I also had severe digestive and eliminative issues.

After 8 solid years of going to psychiatrists and being on heavy medications and being told there was no cure I thought to myself, there has to be a better way.
