Support Pending Legislation for Licensed Naturopaths in Maryland

51Maryland residents have a chance now to help get important legislation passed regarding licensing of Naturopathic physicians in our state. Naturopathic medicine is an extremely important option for people who want to improve their health by getting to the root cause of their symptoms or the disease. It is also an important option for those who have not had success with conventional medicine. And, it is an important option for people who want to prevent illness to begin with. To have licensed Naturopaths in Maryland would be a great step forward in alternative healthcare here.

At Village Green, we are strong proponents of Naturopathic medicine and believe this approach is critical to improving the health of people, and the health of our healthcare system. Naturopathic medicine is – we hope – finally, in 2014, on the verge of becoming licensed in our home state of Maryland, as it is already in a number of other states and the District of Columbia. Dr. Kevin Passero, one of our naturopaths-in-residence who also is a Past President of the Maryland Association of Naturopathic Physicians, has urged us to spread the word about this legislation, and and about taking action by calling or writing to your state senators, if you live in Maryland. Information on how to do this is in the Action Alert below, from Dr, Emily Telfair, current President of the Maryland Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Thank you!  Continue reading “Support Pending Legislation for Licensed Naturopaths in Maryland”
