Now is the time to contact these Committees! These discriminating legislation would deny you the right to practice as Naturopath. Your action is needed, even if you do not live in one of these State!

These bills require you to be licensed and they only recognize CNME accredited schools. ANMA and many graduates from CNME accredited schools do not believe they are any more qualified than you to practice naturopathic medicine. ANMA does not believe a small special interest group should control the naturopathic profession.

It is important that you contact these representatives, as soon as possible, even if you do not live in these States. Urge these representatives to vote NO, as it violates your freedom to practice and strips you of your hard-earned title. If you live in these States, meet with your representatives in person and have a conversation on how these bills could hurt Naturopaths. Forward this to everyone you know. Encourage them to call, fax and email, representatives. Post on Facebook and Twitter. It takes EVERY member to stop harmful bills before it affects your state. Together we can protect naturopathy from falling victim to special interest legislation and maintain the freedom to practice our profession. 

Please do not ignore this if this is not in your State or if you use a different title in your state to practice. IF this Bill does pass it will hurt all Natural Health Care Providers!
