listen Listen: Johanna Simmerman - Student at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine
KTAR's Corbin Carson talks with local student Johanna Simmerman about Naturopaths Without Borders.

PHOENIX -- It's called naturopathic. It's a theory that believes medicine should be used to support the healing process, and that the body can heal itself.

"In addition to traditional medicine practices, [we] also use nutritional support, physical medicine (which is usually adjustments), homeopathy, botanical medicine and acupuncture," said Johanna Simmerman, a medical student at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe.

Simmerman also works with Naturopaths Without Borders, which believes naturopathic medicine is well-suited for resource-poor settings.

"Once a month we usually host a free clinic to the local community of Rocky Point, she said. "Naturopaths Without Borders is a global organization that is committed to providing naturopathic medicine to communities in need."

Naturopaths Without Borders is looking to build a clinic here in the valley next, she said.
