2008 Sunrise Review: Naturopathic Physicians is the fourth response since 1993 to applications submitted by the Colorado Association of Naturopathic Physicians. It is the third time that regulation is being recommended to the legislature. The report acknowledges that controversy surrounds this profession, but points out that the public is being demonstrably harmed by some individuals using the title naturopath. Protecting the public from such harm, not determining whether a practice actually works, is the only appropriate standard for regulation. The report provides detailed information on oversight in the fifteen states and the District of Columbia which currently regulate naturopaths. Read the report.
