It is a completely different field of medicine now. They have their own medical schools and residencies in clinics. Look for homeopathy / Ayurvedic medicine / alternative medicine / herbal therapy.

Most of the schools are west coast and near Seattle / Arizona / California.

Your usmle steps are useless for them you have to go their licensing route which looks much easier actually
