Naturopathy has been practised in Australia since the early 1900s and since this time the profession has matured and evolved. Contemporary naturopaths face new challenges that require a strong and unified voice that represents all sectors of the profession – education, regulation and professional associations. In response, the Australian members of the World Naturopathic Federation (WNF) have formed the Australian Naturopathic Council (ANC). The organisational members of the ANC are committed to a common purpose to improve communication and understanding as well as to share resources and efforts to the benefit of the Australian naturopathic profession. The formation of the ANC is a milestone in the continued maturation and professionalisation of naturopathy in Australia.
