A note about naturopathic medicine in Florida: The state of Florida does not currently license naturopathic doctors. There are efforts underway in the state government to allow licensure of naturopathic physicians. State representatives need to hear from their constituents regarding their choices to obtain healthcare. Licensing naturopathic doctors would help the public know what kind of training a practitioner received and how they can help you attain better health. Your input is very important. Your local legislators need to know that your right to see the practitioner that you choose is limited. If you are interested in promoting natural health initiatives in Florida please contact Judith or visit www.FNPA.org
Always discuss any health concerns or questions with your primary care physician or medical doctor.
The N.D. course of study is an intensive four-year graduate program including approximately 4,500 hours of academic and clinical training. The program leads to licensure as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.). Consumers beware of the terminology. “Naturopathy” has in the recent past been used as a generic and vernacular term to describe an individual who utilizes non-drug and “natural” therapies in working with customers. For example, in the State of California, anyone can call him/herself a naturopath, but naturopathic doctors have to be licensed. An unlicensable naturopath has NOT graduated from four-year, doctoral-level, accredited naturopathic medical education programs, and therefore is NOT trained or licensed to diagnosis and treat. The terms “naturopath”, “naturopathic physician” and “naturopathic doctor” are protected titles in many states. Unfortunately, the term “naturopath” is often utilized in unlicensed states as an equivalent to naturopathic doctor and is heavily utilized by graduates of diploma mills. Always check your practitioner’s credentials.
