In this episode of the ND Update we talk to Dr. Amy Rothenberg about what she did to build her practice and become successful as an Naturopathic Physician. Dr. Rothenberg along with her husband Dr. Paul Herscu have a practice in Enfield, CT. Together they teach homeopathy through the New England School of Homeopathy. You can find out more information about Dr. Amy here and check out her book with stories about naturopathic medicine here. In this episode we talk about:
