The World Naturopathic Federation (WNF) represents naturopathic organizations from around the world. The goal of the WNF is to support and promote the naturopathic profession globally, to support regulation and recognition of the naturopathic workforce, to promote accreditation and the highest in educational standards for the global naturopathic profession and to encourage and support naturopathic research.
Naturopathy / Naturopathic Medicine is a traditional system of medicine originating in Europe and that is part of Traditional and Complementary Medicine (T&CM) around the world. It is defined by distinct philosophies and principles and naturopathic care is guided by distinct naturopathic theories. Naturopathic practice is individualized, complex and multi-modal and incorporates core naturopathic therapies, modalities and practices.
Environmental pollutants are all around us, in the food we eat, the air we breath, and the products we use. These pollutants can be associated with many health problems. Learning how to limit exposure to these pollutants is an important step towards improving our health.
WNF fundraising supports key naturopathic initiatives including naturopathic research projects, humanitarian efforts and initiatives focused on the international development of the naturopathic profession.
The WNF worked with the global naturopathic community to compile a Health Technology Assessment (HTA) on Naturopathy to provide an evidence-based summary of naturopathic practice and the safety, economics and effectiveness of naturopathic care. The scope of the HTA was informed by research conducted by the international naturopathic community over the last thirty years encompassing over 2000 peer-reviewed scientific articles of which more than 300 clinical studies involving over 100 different health populations are outlined in the HTA.
Live Review on NHPs Researched during the Pandemic
The goal of this living map of evidence is to act as a resource, attesting to the abundance and nature of the published peer-reviewed evidence being synthesized on natural health products (NHPs) for application to COVID in the form of research reports that have used a systematic (and reproducible) strategy. This live review will be divided by the prevention of COVID, the treatment of COVID and post-COVID syndrome. It will be updated at the end of each month.
