LICENSING STATUS: Because of the way the new law governing Naturopathic Doctors here in Colorado has been written (House Bill 13-1111), my education does not qualify me to be licensed, certified, or registered by the state as a Naturopathic Doctor. Only those who attended Naturopathic medical schools can be licensed. My training was in historical/traditional naturopathy…which is entirely non-medical. That said, according to Senate Bill 13-215 I am free to continue helping people as I always have (nutritional consulting), but I can’t use the ND designation that I earned from Trinity, nor call myself a Dr. I can use the designation of Naturopath/Nutritionist.
OTHER LEGAL ISSUES: You need to know that part of the law states that I am to instruct you to discuss any of my recommendations with your primary care physician and/or other licensed health care professionals from whom you’re seeking help. You also need to know that I carry no liability insurance applicable to any injury caused by any of my advice.
