Naturopathic Doctors Call For Real Health Care Reform

Today, 100 naturopathic doctors and supporters met on Capitol Hill to advocate for an overhaul of the nation’s healthcare system.

“The healthcare system must address the underlying factors that lead to chronic disease,” says Karen Howard, Executive Director of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. “Nearly 40% of all U.S. deaths are from heart disease, and more than two thirds of Americans are overweight. We need to move past this broken model and create a system that focuses on overall health, wellness and enabling the body’s natural healing process.”

This is the change we need. By empowering people to take charge of their health by incorporating more whole foods, exercise and stress reducing activities we can significantly lower the amount of money we spend on medications and operations.

This is exactly what Integrative Nutrition students are doing. Yes, we are a school, but we are also a movement. Students and graduates are out in their communities teaching men, women and children the importance of whole grains, fruits and vegetables as well as balancing other aspects their lives.

Do you want to be a part of this movement?
