The New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians (NYANP) is the professional organization for Naturopathic Doctors in New York State. The NYANP is a not-for-profit organization. Our members are graduates of accredited four-year, graduate-level, in-residence naturopathic medical programs. While New York State does not license Naturopathic Doctors at this time, all of our professional members maintain a license as a Naturopathic Physician in at least one of the 20 states that do license NDs.
The mission of the NYANP is to pursue licensure of NDs in NY and to increase the public awareness of naturopathic medicine.
The NYANP has several options that make applying for membership easier than ever! Join your colleagues and be a part of the winning team focused on licensure for Naturopathic Doctors in the State of New York. By becoming a member, you'll get discounted rates for our annual conference and have your practice information listed on the website. The public can trust that our NDs have graduated from a fully accredited naturopathic medical school.
Naturopathic medicine celebrates the healing power of nature. Naturopathic medicine is dedicated to the study and celebration of nature's healing powers. It is as old as healing itself and as new as today's medical breakthroughs. It is a dynamic philosophy as well as a profession that recognizes the interconnection and the interdependence of all living things. It utilizes the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies to treat illness and to promote wellness by viewing the body as an integrated whole (AANMC).
Naturopathic medicine honors the body's innate wisdom to heal. Rather than being defined by methods or modalities, naturopathic medicine is defined by 6 principles.
Naturopathic doctors practice these six fundamental principles of naturopathic medicine:
Trust in the body's inherent wisdom to heal itself.
Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.
Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.
View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions..
Focus on overall health, wellness, and disease prevention,
