NCNM Student Remarks:

History and Demise of CNME
In December 1998, the NAC voted 11 to 4 to deny CNME its accreditation
status. At this point CNME had an opportunity to appeal the NAC decision
against them to the Secretary of Education Richard Riley. From December
1998 to January 2001, USDE examined all facts and concluded that CNME
was treated fairly but did not follow its own printed standards, and
failed to meet Integrity issues. The following, dated January 16,
2001, is a reproduction of the Secretary of Education Report,
denying once and for all, CNME recognition by USDE.
Bites The Dust!
An eighteen (18) page report by a staff analyst for the United States
Department of Education (USDE) examining the credibility and integrity
of the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education
(CNME). The report written for the National Advisory Committee on
Institutional Quality and Integrity recommends that CNME be denied their
status as an accreditor of naturopathic programs. Update
Naturopathic Medical Education
Lets examine the misguided rhetoric written about accredited four year
resident Naturopathic Medical schools teaching surgery, drugs and
pretending to produce primary care physicians.
When ANMA posted the page entitled CNME referring to
Caution Naturopathic Medical Education members of AANP responded with
their usual denials. Some individuals have asked us to respond and we do
so in the following manner.
(1997) Based on Government Reports, New Hampshire Board of Naturopathic
Examiners issues licenses to graduates of bogus schools.
Hampshire Government Cavalier Response
In the following letter the deputy attorney general is responding to the
fraudulent licensing listed on our web page, titled
Fraud. He states he is speaking on behalf of the governor. ANMA was
not aware of those individuals seeking licensure until after they were
already granted licenses. It appears New Hampshire is not willing to
license credible and knowledgeable individuals from correspondent
schools, but would rather license individuals pretending to be from four
year resident schools.
AANP from New Hampshire Legislators.
As the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the New Hampshire House Executive
Departments and Administration Committee, we are writing to express our
extreme concern over some blatant misstatements made in the lead article
in the latest edition of "The Naturopathic Physician." This is
the article entitled "New Hampshire Licenses NDs." The
ED&A Committee is the standing legislative committee that has direct
oversight over all of the professional licensing boards in the state.
Our committee worked extensively on the bill to license naturopaths (HB
451), many issues were hotly debated and we sincerely hope that the full
coverage that you promise for your next edition of "The
Naturopathic Physician" provides an accurate description of the law
that did pass in New Hampshire.
Letters from students who attended National College of Naturopathic
Student Report, June 1992
The following is a NCNM student survey report produced in June of 1992
shortly after a company by the name of Sorenson had revealed their
findings and recommendations to National college. ANMA received the
report from the Oregon Office of Educational Policy and Planning as part
of a Freedom of Information request. This report was produced by a
substantial percentage of the National College student body shortly
after National College of Naturopathic Medicine was accredited by the
Council on Naturopathic Medical Education
The following letter is a response to the recent article which included
a section Naturopathy in the February issue of Prevention Magazine. ANMA
suggests the following “corrections” that should be added to your
articles on Naturopathy should you include it in any future editions.
There are closer to 10,000 Naturopaths across the United States.
Approximately 2000 of them are members of ANMA.
We've heard a lot of talk lately about regulation and high standards in
Canada. On April 29, 1991, Dr. David A. Young, Administrator of Academic
Degrees and Program Review of the Office of Educational Policy and
Planning, Salem, Oregon dated and signed a letter to H. Reed Saunders,
Office of Postsecondary Education, U.S. Department of Education,
Washington, D.C. In this letter he stated,....
to the "OAND"
Illness prevention, lower health care costs, reduced drug usage - these
are some of the health care goals of the Ontario Government. Naturopathic medicine can help the
government achieve these goals. Yet the government is impeding the growth of naturopathic
medicine by stalling the introduction of a promised new regulatory law. A new law would:

Lawsuit # 2
Lawsuits Against: National College of Naturopathic
Medicine (NCNM), Council on Naturopathic Medical
Education (CNME), and the American Association of
Naturopathic Physicians (AANP).
A license is a permission to do something that
otherwise is forbidden. In most cases, a license is required or
mandatory for engaging in that activity. For instance, a
drivers license is considered mandatory to drive a car on the public
roads. An exception is that a house may be built by someone who is not a
