THIS ONE DECRIMINALIZES MY PROFESSION
HB0722 by Niceley: Physicians and Surgeons - As introduced, removes the Class B misdemeanor offense of practicing naturopathy.
THIS ONE OFFERS LICENSURE
SB1630 by Beavers: Medical Occupations - As introduced, provides for the licensure of naturopathic physicians.
HERE'S THE HISTORY
Wikipedia has the history of how Naturopathy got to be illegal in TN and TX. It is because of the lobbying efforts of the AMA.
Did you know that only 26% of MD's in the US are members of the AMA?
I just heard that on NPR the other day, after Obama's speech to the AMA.
