The World Naturopathic Federation represents over 70 naturopathic organizations from across the globe. Our goal is to promote naturopathy, increase awareness of naturopathy within our member countries and provide education to countries about the value of naturopathy to the health of all people.

Naturopathy is a system of healthcare with deep traditional philosophies and practices, and with a breadth of natural treatment options to serve patients.

Naturopathy is practiced in every world region, spanning over eighty countries. Statutory regulation of the naturopathic profession currently exists in jurisdictions in North America, India, Europe and Latin America.

Health Technology Assessment – Naturopathy

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.

The HTA is a 720 page book with 41 Chapters titled Naturopathy, practice, effectiveness economics & safety. We would like to thank Naturopaths And Herbalists Association Of Australia (NHAA) for their generous support in helping to fund this project. We would also like to acknowledge the 51 naturopaths/naturopathic doctors who contributed to chapters of this HTA (See Appendix IV) and to those that reviewed sections of the HTA (See Appendix V).
