Why did you become a member of the NYANP?

I am a proud member of the NYANP for many reasons. Initially, I joined as a new naturopathic graduate who was interested in supporting state licensing efforts through the financial contribution of membership. Over time, I had the opportunity to attend our annual conferences and experienced that membership was also about meeting naturopathic colleagues here and cultivating a sense of community with others who have very similar and yet unique experiences working in this large diverse state.

Membership provides me the opportunity to grow my referral and resource networks as well as helps prospective clients/patients find me through the NYANP website’s “Find a ND” feature.

In the last year, I have participated more actively as a Board member, getting to see firsthand just how much is going on inside the organization. This role has allowed me to work with colleagues to engage directly in ongoing legislative efforts and to connect with and grow our naturopathic community here. The Board is leading efforts to expand statewide membership, offer more educational opportunities and provide more services and resources. I’ve no doubt that member benefits will continue to increase; especially as more people join the NYANP and get involved!

Why did you become a member of the NYANP?

Being an NYANP member is one of the primary ways I support naturopathic medicine in New York. To me, it doesn't make sense to be practicing here and to not support the organization that tirelessly represents and fights for us. For me, it's less about what I get from the organization and more what I can give because it is in giving that we are going to be made stronger as a profession. We all need each other, as much as we can give of our time and resources. We are a small but mighty group in this state; anything we can do to work together and combine our efforts will only serve to build each and every one of us up and lend legitimacy to the work we do day in and day out.

I love that my financial contribution supports our efforts in New York, as well as the annual conference, which is a terrific time of coming-together for NDs in our state. I've been practicing for a decade and I absolutely love my practice and my patients; but I can sometimes feel disconnected from my colleagues. I joined the board this past year not only to contribute what I can to our profession but also to find ways I can bring us together as physicians and friends. Never has there been a time when our medicine is more needed. The NYANP is here for us and I hope in the upcoming months we will find ways to come together more and more, supporting one another and supporting naturopathic medicine in New York.

Dr. Joseph Mercola has been passionate about health and technology for most of his life. As a doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) and family physician, he performed routine checkups, school physicals and treated chronic illnesses, seeing more than 20,000 patients over 20 years.

Because he was trained under the conventional medical model, Dr. Mercola treated patients using prescription drugs during his first years of private practice and was actually a paid speaker for drug companies. As he began experiencing the failures of the conventional model in his practice, he started exploring natural medicine and found great success with preventative, holistic approaches.

Dr. Mercola founded Mercola.com in 1997 to share his own health experiences, spread vital health information and promote natural ways to achieve optimal health.
