Dr. Marchese explains the best way to locate a licensed naturopathic physician.
Well right now there’s 15 states that naturopathic medicine is licensed in and so, the best way to find those states, or to find a licensed naturopathic physician is through our national organization’s website which is www.naturopathic.org. That is the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians’ website and all the physicians listed there on that site and all the states that are listed are licensed naturopathic physicians and states that license them.
Some of the unlicensed states do have naturopathic physicians practicing in them. However, there’s nobody regulating if it’s a naturopath with proper training or not and again, I would stick to the site at naturopathic.org even for those unlicensed states and pick a doctor off of that website.
