The Maine Association of Naturopathic Doctors (MAND) is a professional association of naturopathic doctors (NDs) who live and work in Maine. Our members are graduates of accredited four-year, graduate-level, in-residence naturopathic medical programs. The MAND is dedicated to advancing the principles of naturopathic medicine and expanding Maine’s consumers’ access to this important natural, prevention-based form of health care. In Maine, Naturopathic Doctors (ND’s) must hold a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from one of five accredited naturopathic medical schools in North America. This degree is a guarantee to the public that the holder possesses the requisite didactic and clinical training to practice Naturopathic Medicine. The doctorate degree prepares ND’s to be primary care general practitioners and to work together with other medical providers. Naturopathic Doctors are experts in the use of natural therapies and drug/nutrient, drug/herb interactions. For this reason Naturopathic Doctors are nationally recognized as experts in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and are included on the White House Commission on CAM and the advisory board for the National Institutes of Health.

2017 Speaker Biographies
Dr Miles Simmons MD As a holistic psychiatrist, Dr. Simmons looks to nutrition, lifestyle modification and various healing techniques to affect the greatest outcome for the patient. In working with patients over the years, Dr. Simmons has come to believe that love in its many forms and/or coping with the absence of love, constitutes the fulcrum upon which suffering and healing turn. He believes that love in the form of listening with full presence, whether as a friend or family member or healing practitioner, also includes listening to the body as a teacher. His services include Holistic Psychiatry, Functional Medicine, Psychopharmacology, Psychotherapy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy through Casco Bay TMS, Thought-Field Therapy/ Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Tappas Accupressure Technique. In addition to his work at Integrative Health Center of Maine in Portland, Maine and his private practice of over 26 years, Dr. Simmons has managed treatment units in private and public psychiatric hospitals, consulted in therapeutic high schools and residential treatment centers, and served in community mental health centers.
