Taking Charge of Your Health


IT IS A PRACTICE THAT MAKES NAVIGATING THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM EVEN MORE COMPLICATED. SEARCHING FOR MEDICAL DOCTORS ONLY TO WIND UP WITH SOMETHING. NATURAL PAVIK DOCTORS HAVE BEEN USING A TITLE THEY SHOULDN’T. HERE IS RICK SALLINGER. Reporter: THE DEATH OF SEAN GALLAGHER TOUCHED OFF STEAM. HE RECEIVED TREATMENT FROM A MAN WHO CALLED HIMSELF A NATURAL PAVIK DOCTOR. I HAVE PEOPLE LIKE BRIAN O’CONNELL WHO CAN CLAIM TO BE A DOCTOR. Reporter: THAT SO-CALLED DOCTOR WAS SENT TO PRISON AND LEGISLATION WAS LATER PAST TWO DOCTORS OF NATURAL PATH HE. BUT IN THE LAW, ONE POINT WAS MADE VERY CLEAR. NATURAL PATHS CANNOT REFER TO THEMSELVES BY A KEYWORD. A NATURAL PAVIK DOCTOR CANNOT SAY IN COLORADO THAT THEY ARE A PHYSICIAN. Reporter: HERE IS ONE THAT REFERS TO NATURAL PASEK PHYSICIANS. ANOTHER CALLS HERSELF A SPECIALTY POSITION. WE FOUND THE NATURAL PAVIK DOCTOR PRACTICING HERE MADE REFERENCES ON HER SIDE TO BEING A PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN. BUT AFTER OUR INQUIRIES, THAT WAS CHANGED. IT’S DEFINITELY CHANGED. Reporter: DOCTOR ROWAN IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE COLORADO ASSOCIATION OF NATURAL PAVIK DOCTORS. OUR MEMBERS HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT THE CORRECT TERMINOLOGY IS NATURAL PAVIK DOCTOR. SO THEY SHOULDN’T BE USING THE WORD PHYSICIAN. THEY SHOULD BE USING THE THERE. NOT PHYSICIAN. Reporter: THE COLORADO CITIZENS FOR SCIENCE AND MEDICINE CONDUCT A SURVEY OF WEBSITES CLAIMING MOST NATURAL PAVIK DOCTORS VIOLATE THE COLORADO MEDICAL PRACTICES ACT IN — AND STATE STATUTES. IT WOULD BE HARD NOT TO BELIEVE THEY ARE MEDICAL DOCTORS GIVEN THEIR OWN DISCUSSIONS. Reporter: SOME NATURAL PAVIK DOCTORS CLAIM THEY ARE LICENSED, BUT THEY CAN’T BE. THE STATE SAYS THEY ARE SIMPLY REGISTERED. WHICH CARRIES LESS SCRUTINY. THE PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION POINTS OUT THAT PATIENTS SIGNED DISCLOSURE FORMS THAT MAKE CLEAR THEY ARE DEALING WITH AN ENDING, — AN ND NOT AN MD. WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS? OFTENTIMES THEY MOVE FROM ANOTHER STATE.

  1. The 2017 naturopath sunset bill requires naturopathic doctors to now use the title "Registered Naturopathic Doctor," or "RND." This came about after Colorado state senators learned about NDs referring to themselves as "physicians." They thought that "ND" looked too much like "MD."

    But most disturbing are the many worthless or potentially dangerous practices RNDs offer to the public.

  2. CBS scum ! Real medicine is Naturopathic ! Fake medicine is drug pushing and deadly ALLOPATHIC. CBS scum ! CBS PROPAGANDA !!!!!

  3. Mainstream physicians are responsible for thousands of unnecessary deaths each year. I'll stick with holistic and naturopathic doctors.
