Unlike many other states, Florida does not provide licenses for individuals practicing naturopathic medicine. Thus, under Florida law, naturopathic doctors are not permitted or licensed to practice medicine and solely operate in a consulting capacity.  Dr. Ramona Shires has her doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine and uses her  knowledge to educate clients and provide information on natural wellness intended to be used under the supervision of your primary care physician or specialist.  If you do not have a current primary care physician or other specialist, Dr. Shires maintains an extensive referral network in the area.

The information on this website is not intended to provide or replace medical advice, nor should it be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. Dr. Shires is not licensed to practice medicine in the state of Florida. Information that she posts may not apply to your specific healthcare needs and should be discussed with your personal healthcare practitioner before applying.

Naturopathic medicine strongly stresses that all people react differently to different treatments.  What works for one person may not work for you.  If you would like to see a naturopathic physician in your area as a client to receive individualized treatment, the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians has a member directory on their website.  Go to naturopathic.org and click “find a doctor.”
