Welcome to the RIANP

OUR MISSION
To increase access to quality healthcare and forward the field of Naturopathic Medicine in the areas of public education, accessibility, and efforts toward licensing naturopathic doctors in Rhode Island.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained as general practice physicians and are experts in natural medicine, blending non-toxic natural therapies with current advancements in the studies of health and human systems while covering all aspects of family healthcare from prenatal to geriatrics.

A Naturopathic Physicians Act:

What a licensure bill will do: The legislation would require licensure for naturopathic doctors to practice in Rhode Island, by establishing educational and practice standards and a board to regulate the profession. There are U.S. 20 jurisdictions that currently license naturopathic doctors – 17 states, Washington D.C., and all the U.S. territories.

Why a licensure bill is needed:

Licensure ensures high quality naturopathic care in Rhode Island by protecting the consumer from unqualified practitioners who claim to be naturopathic doctors. Licensure will improve access to complementary medicine and promote business development because more qualified specialists in natural medicine will be encouraged to practice in Rhode Island.
