Naturopathic Licensing

The licensure of Naturopathic medicine is governed by state legislatures in the United States. Help bring licensing of Naturopathic Medicine to Michigan. 

The Benefits of Naturopathic Licensing

  • Licensure would allow Naturopathic Doctors to practice under the full scope of medicine for which they were trained.
  • Local communities would enjoy an increase in safe and natural healthcare options and highly individualized medial care.
  • Naturopathic Doctors would help ease a stressed and overburdened medical system by filling the much-needed role for primary care medicine in the State of Michigan.
  • Licensure would make it more feasible for patients to get insurance coverage for Naturopathic Medical Care.
  • Patients would not have to travel outside Michigan to see licensed Naturopathic Doctors.
  • Licensure would help increase jobs by encouraging more Naturopathic Doctors to move to Michigan communities and relieve rural areas without availability of health care.

Naturopathic Licensing Status in Michigan

Michigan does not currently have legislation for licensure of Naturopathic Doctors to practice to their full efficacy and capacity in Michigan. The Michigan Association of Naturopathic Doctors is spearheading an effort to license accredited Naturopathic Doctors. Senate Bill 826 to license NDs passed the Michigan Senate in May 2018 and is currently pending in the House of Representatives. Michigan needs your help to move the bill forward! Financial support is a necessary component of lobbying for effective legislation to accomplish this feat, and we need your help!
