To: To: Pennsylvania State Senate Consumer Protection & Professional Licensure CommitteeVOTE NO ON PENNSYLVANIA SENATE BILL 834 (NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR PRACTICE ACT).
Why is this important?
Legislation May Affect Choices in Pennsylvania's Naturopathic Care
We are urging citizens to contact their state representatives to vote “no” on proposed senate bill 834, introduced this past July. The bill would repeal Act 128, which Governor Tom Wolf signed into law November 2016.
The law requires registration of practitioners in the naturopathic field. Act 128 is an amendment to HB 516, which would regulate naturopathic doctors, set education and training requirements and allows only those that meet those qualifications to present themselves as “naturopathic doctors” or a “doctor of naturopathic medicine”. Bill 834 includes much of the licensing requirements and penalties originally presented in HB 516.
“Basically, there’s a select group that qualifies themselves as ‘naturopathic physicians’ claiming that they are medically trained, and they want exclusivity with the title ‘naturopathic doctor,’”
This law could adversely affect consumer choice and access to natural products and could also put 250 practicing Traditional Naturopaths out of business.
The issue is a group trying to claim that these natural products and natural foods and herbs are medicine, and it will make it more difficult for consumers to access preventative care. Prevention is what traditional naturopathy is—an educational model teaching clients about health and laws of nature, rather than diagnosing and prescribing.

Several Signs That Your Body is Full of Toxins and How to Naturally Detox
These are the symptoms that we should not ignore:
1.Increased Belly Fat (liver fat)
Excess abdominal fat can indicate that your body is full of toxins, as they disrupt the body's ability to regulate glucose levels and metabolize cholesterol they get stored in fat cells..
Excess amounts of toxins in the body can lead to skin issues, like skin inflammation, rosacea, eczema, and itchy skin. This is due to the efforts of the body to eliminate the toxins in a natural way. Here, our skin acts as our 3rd kidney to helps rid the body of toxins .
Poisons present in the body irritate the central nervous system and cause headaches.
Too many toxins (free radicals) in the body force the liver to overwork. Therefore, the liver creates extra heat, and as a result, the whole body is overheating.
5.Low Energy Levels
Toxic overload can cause the body to constantly feel tired and exhausted, even after a nights sleep.
Your sinuses can easily become congested as a result of the contaminated air you breathe.
When toxins accumulate in the tissues, they irritate and obstruct the circulation and cause the body to become restless and unable to sleep.
8.Problems with the Gallbladder
Deposits of toxins in the liver can make the bile heavy and can lead to a clogged gallbladder. Also you will notice pain or discomfort under the first rib on the right side.
9.White or Yellow Coated Tongue
If your tongue has a white or yellow coating, it is a sign that there are too many toxins in your blood.
Here we reveal three of the most effective detox remedies:
1.Epsom Salt Bath
Epsom salt baths are extremely effective in detoxifying the body, as it raises the levels of magnesium, which is especially needed for detoxifying cells. And it helps to eliminate heavy metals and can help alleviate the pain in the body. It also has laxative properties.
What you need to do is to add one to two cups of Epsom salt in a bathtub filled with warm water and soak in it for around 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat this detox method three times a week.
Warning: Please note that this treatment is not recommended in the case of heart problems and high blood pressure.
2. Green Tea
Green tea is abundant in antioxidants, so it is extremely effective in eliminating free radicals. Moreover, it has epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is a powerful antioxidant that prevent toxic damage of the liver.
All you need to do is to consume two to three cups of green tea every day. You can also take green tea extracts (100 to 750 mg per day).
Lemon juice is one of the most potent alkalizers and detoxifiers. Furthermore, it triggers the liver’s bile production and stimulates mineral intake as well as absorption.
Lemons are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C which boosts the immune system. These fruits, and particularly the peels, are rich in an antioxidant called d-limonene, which successfully activates enzymes in the liver that help with the elimination of toxic compounds.
Therefore, regularly consume a cup of room temp water mixed with the juice squeezed from one lemon or lime as soon as you wake up.
