License NY Naturopathic Docs

Despite the fact that more people than ever are looking for holistic, functional and natural medicine care from their doctors, New Yorkers are being purposely kept away from being allowed to have naturopathic doctors (ND's) as primary care physicians.

Licensing New York ND's  will help millions of New Yorkers who are not allowed access to the experts in holistic and natural medicine care: naturopathic doctors. 

Right now, 20 states license naturopathic doctors (including Connecticut - licensed since 1922), but the Medical Society of the State of New York is not allowing ND licensing. It wields it's heavy influence and money on the New York legislature to keep the status quo.  It's a David and Goliath story, where the New York Association of Naturopathic Phyisicians, despite the opposition,  have fought valiantly against this behometh in order to have bills far along the legislative path in Albany.

But now we need your help to move it through - to help change health care for millions.

Massachusetts was licensed in December of 2016, and there is now a strong momentum to help get New York licensed too. But the window is closing so we need your support now.

The New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians is a non-profit group that will use your hard-earned money to get the right education to key legislators and influencers to help move through this impasse.

thank you for profoundly changing healthcare for the better. to your health,
