The New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians
Vision: Advance Access to and Awareness of Naturopathic Medicine
Mission: Healthy New Yorkers, Licensed Naturopathic Physicians

NYANP sincerely thanks the following donor for their generous support of our mission:


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.

Revitin Natural Toothpaste

Revitin is the world’s only toothpaste that subscribes to the modern science of the human microbiome – our native bacteria, when in balance, do amazing things, such as remineralize our teeth and maintain healthy gums by providing needed oxygen. Formulated with prebiotics, CoQ10, and vitamins; including K2 and D3, Revitin nurtures and balances our oral microbiome, which leads to optimal oral health and is intimately linked to total body wellness.

A new legislative session is starting soon!

We need your help letting legislators know that licensure for NY NDs is good for New York.

In an effort to aid the recovery of a healthier New York, the NYANP has created a committee designated to the collation of clinical research and in review of clinical care outcomes for patients exposed to, diagnosed with or recovering from COVID-19.  Please contact us if you are an active member who would like to join this effort.  The current members are Dr. Peter Bongiorno, Dr. Amy Cole, Dr. Brian Crouse, Dr. Jillian Finker, Dr. Sean Heerey, Dr. Maura Henninger, Dr. Sharon Stills and Dr. Tia Trivisonno.


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.

The 6 Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

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:

The Healing Power of Nature

Trust in the body's inherent wisdom to heal itself.

Identify and Treat the Causes

Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.

First Do No Harm

Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.

Doctor as Teacher

Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.

Treat the Whole Person

View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions..


Focus on overall health, wellness, and disease prevention,
