On June 5, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed a bill that allows qualified naturopathic doctors to register in that state, making the current number of states where naturopathic doctors can practice legally, with all of the responsibilities and privileges that implies, up to 17, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto and the U.S. Virgin Islands. With his signature on the bill, consumers in the majestic state of Colorado now have an expanded choice in health care providers and can seek out the care of doctor-level practitioners of natural medicine.
