Switzerland approves profession!
Switzerland approves Naturopath as legitimate profession
Nationally qualified Naturopath becomes a reality.
On April 28 2015 the State Secretary for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI) approved the advanced professional examination for Naturopaths. This ensures the nationally recognised and protected title: Naturopathic practitioner with Advanced Federal Diploma of Professional Education and Training. The profession recognizes four specific therapeutic fields: Ayurvedic Medicine, Homeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Traditional European Naturopathy (TEN).
Thus, a core requirement of the constitutional article 118afor the establishment of national diplomas for non-medical professions in the field of complementary medicine is fulfilled.
