“The North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH) is dedicated to promote, represent and serve as the voice of all professional homeopaths in North America. NASH aims to develop and uphold the highest level of excellence in homeopathic practice while enhancing the role of the homeopathic profession as an integral part of health care delivery.”
Originally founded in 1990, its mission was to set standards of competency and to certify individuals in the practice of classical homeopathy in order to inform and protect health care consumers in search of homeopathic treatment. The past 15 years has seen a rapid evolution of various homeopathic agencies throughout North America.
Since 2001, NASH has worked in close communication with the Council of Homeopathic Certification (CHC), which sets and maintains standards of practice for certification in classical homeopathy, and is one way of becoming a NASH Registered Member. NASH aims to uphold the highest standards of excellence in homeopathic practice and as such has our own Registration process which allows one to become a NASH Registered Member. In 2002, NASH opened its doors to licensed health care providers who have demonstrated their commitment to homeopathy.
An important element of NASH’s mission is to promote and represent professional homeopaths and to enhance the role of the homeopathic profession as an integral part of health care delivery in North America.
NASH’s goal is to further develop an expanded, cohesive organization that gives its members:
- Professional unity and strength.
- A strong voice among other health care modalities.
