The Journey to Becoming a Naturopath: What Traditional Naturopathy Is & How It Can Impact Your Life

I could not be more excited to share my journey to becoming a Traditional Naturopath with you. Specifically, I will detail out why I chose this field and what exactly the 'Traditional Naturopath' does as I view it as life changing.

Ever since I was a young child, I had an affinity for health, the human body and nutrition. I was born and raised during my formative childhood years in Bulgaria. I still have fond memories of spending my Summers in the village in the Balkan region of Bulgaria with my grandparents, surrounded by pristine land to say the least.

My grandmother practiced 'holistic' health and I still remembered her torn and tattered books with recipes & nutrition information. She grew herbs in the village and had a garden. My Grandmother instilled in me early on that 'sodas' were bad & other basic health information that was just enough for me to absorb. As basic as this was, this is where it all began.

I come from a well educated family of physicians, structural engineers, architects and lawyers. I think deep down that I always had a desire and drive to do something big with my life and something that made my parents proud.



Originally, I thought I wanted to become an orthopedic surgeon so I was a major in micro-biology with a chemistry minor. It became clear early on that while this was an 'affluent' career choice, it was not my passion or purpose. I quickly became confused as to what exactly I was to do and I had to go back to the drawing board.

Thank you for this Great article! My specialization is in homeopathy, which is a system of medicine used widely and successfully throughout the world. But, as a naturopath, a healthy lifestyle ( as free from toxins as is possible, proper diet, physical activity, supplementation as needed, etc) is the foundation of everything that I do. I appreciate the author's passion for naturopathy! Teresa, ND

I have a sensitive question to ask. I don't mean to judge, I am curious. I read many biographies and success stories from people who have serious diagnoses like those mentioned by Mr.Poptodorov: anxiety, depression, ADHD, Bipolar. And yet, he was able to start and run a successful business, be a successful personal trainer, help his wife, and go to school to be a naturopath before he was able to make himself better than ever with naturopathic medicine. I have mild anxiety, arthritis, neuropathy, spine problems--nothing real serious, but enough that if I do not eat right and get enough sleep, I cannot function. No way can I be a super achiever like this man was before he got himself well holistically. This is not the first story I've read with this seemingly--to me--dissonant or contradictive information. How in the world do people accomplish so much with serious health issues? If I could do all that I would not be very concerned with my diagnoses and health issues. Can someone, the author maybe, enlighten me?
