The California Naturopathic Doctors Association (CNDA) is a professional membership association representing California naturopathic doctors (NDs). The CNDA is incorporated as a California mutual benefit 501(c)(6) nonprofit corporation.

Scope Modernization

2022 will be an important year for legislative efforts for the CNDA. Our licensing body, the Naturopathic Medicine Committee is set to sunset and, as we do every 4 years, we have to prove the need to keep it running. There will be opposition to this from unlicensable NDs in the state and we will need your support to assure a smooth process.

We are also planning to introduce legislation to allow NDs to hire Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs). This legislation will have a significant impact on many of your practices -- but we can’t do this without your support. 

Take Action Now

  1. Become a CNDA member, if you’re not already
  2. Donate Now to our legislative campaign (and keep donating, please!)
  3. Sign up/Take Action on current legislation through Voter Voice
  4. Connect Us to your own legislative stories and patient experiences that can help support our advocacy efforts.

The Holistic Human: Advances in Naturopathic Primary Care

As licensed primary care physicians, naturopathic doctors are expected to be knowledgeable about the
management of a variety of acute and chronic conditions.

In addition, patients come to us with the desire for updated knowledge and evidence-based treatments.
Keeping up to date in primary care practice is key to providing the best naturopathic care to our patients.
