Breaking News: On October 2, 2013. the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed HB 612 by a margin of 161-33.
House Bill 612 now up for consideration in the Pennsylvania Senate.
The Pennsylvania Association of Naturoapthic Physicians (PANP) is a dedicated group of highly trained primary care practitioners who specialize in natural medicine. Combining centuries of knowledge in healing sciences with new and innovative techniques, naturopathic doctors (NDs) strive to provide the best care possible for patients suffering from a variety of conditions. These include, but are not limited to: chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal exhaustion syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep disturbances, allergies and asthma, and other illnesses.
Our voting members are trained as naturopathic doctors who have graduated from accredited programs and who hold and maintain licenses in other states through continuing education. However, we are not currently licensed to practice medicine in Pennsylvania. Rather, we act as natural health consultants. The PANP has submitted a Bill to the Pennsylvania legistlature to providing licensure for naturoapthic doctors. Passage of HB 612 would greatly expand the ability of naturopathic doctors in Pennsylvania to provide the health care necessary for all patient needs. For more information on the benefits of state licensure, please visit the licensure section of this website.
