the State of Massachusetts Legislature states:

[in "Majority Report of the Special Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medical Practitioners: A Report to the Legislature January, 2002"]
.
"[the legislature's report tells us] following are the definitions of naturopathic medicine and its scope of practice as supported by the AANP: 'naturopathic medicine is a [...] science [...] naturopathic medicine is distinguished by the principles which underlie and determine its practice. These principles are based upon the objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually reexamined in the light of scientific advances. Methods used are consistent with these principles [...] naturopathic doctors are primary health care practitioners, whose diverse techniques include modern and traditional, scientific and empirical methods (American Association of Naturopathic Physicians)' [...and the legislature tells us] in order to ensure that all naturopathic health care providers possess the same minimum level of skill and competency, the majority of the Commission’s members believe that it is essential to standardize the educational and training process by which they prepare for entry into the field. In particular, Commission members agreed that rigorous training in the basic principles of biological and chemical science which govern human anatomy, physiology and disease processes was essential for proper professional preparation and that the adequacy of such training should not be left to chance. Requiring candidates for licensure to obtain their preprofessional training through uniform, standardized programs of study at educational institutions is the only truly reliable and efficient method of ensuring that each practitioner possesses the knowledge base and practice skills needed for safe practice in the field of naturopathy. Furthermore, oversight of such programs of study by governmentally-recognized accrediting organizations which possess proper levels of expertise in evaluating the quality and adequacy of those programs and their teaching methods is necessary to ensure that the preprofessional education is both sufficient and up to date";
