Naturopathic Doctors in Massachusetts would like your support to help in our licensing effort. Licensing would allow ND’s to provide the depth of health care that they are trained to give, providing you better service and more treatment options. Most importantly, it would protect the health care consumer by preventing untrained people from calling themselves naturopathic doctors.
What it takes to get licensed.
Naturopathic Doctors, while practicing in Massachusetts since at least the late 1970’s, remain unlicensed in this state. That may be a surprise to some. Licensing is a function of the state legislature. A law has to be passed to allow a profession to be licensed. Though we have been trying since 1995 to pass a licensing law we have not yet been successful.
