Welcome to the website of Naturopaths & Medical Herbalists of NZ (Inc).(NMHNZ)

NMHNZ was formed in 2017 by the amalgamation of two long-standing societies, the NZ Society of Naturopaths and Naturopaths of NZ. This was a much-celebrated union in response to a desire for members to be united in their quest for the recognition and advancement of naturopathy in New Zealand. Our aim for our member naturopaths is to provide support and to progress and protect the development of naturopathic medicine in New Zealand.

To the general public we provide a guaranteed standard of natural health care ensuring members of NMHNZ are qualified to the best standards of education and update their education on a yearly basis. Practicing certificates are issued each year provided ongoing professional development requirements have been met. By choosing a Registered Naturopath, you can be certain your naturopath adheres to these requirements.

Who can use the term "Naturopath"?

At present New Zealand has no legislation around naturopathy, which means anyone can call themselves a naturopath. NMHNZ only accepts members who meet our stringent educational standards and who continue professional education on a yearly basis. This means you are assured of a highly qualified health care professional for your safety and well-being.
