Senate Passes Naturopathic Medicine Week Resolution

Oct 01, 2013 11:08PM

The U.S. Senate recently unanimously passed a resolution designating October 7 to 13 as Naturopathic Medicine Week. The resolution recognizes the value of naturopathic medicine in providing “safe, effective and affordable health care” and encourages Americans to learn about the role of naturopathic physicians in preventing chronic and debilitating conditions.

Passage of this resolution is a historic achievement for naturopathic medicine. The Congress has now officially recognized the important role naturopathic medicine plays in effectively addressing the nation’s health care needs as well as in addressing the increasingly severe shortage of primary care physicians.

The resolution will soon be posted on Congress’ official website, For more information, visit
