Non-medical practitioners look across national borders on the special topic "Boundless Naturopathy in Europe"
Can naturopathy be classified as an intangible cultural heritage according to UNESCO criteria? What has the 5th EU Symposium in Brussels on “Legal Practice of CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine)” revealed? The profession of naturopath in Germany is one of the European health professions. But why does an international and worldwide health system like that of naturopathy or, politically correct, traditional medicine / complementary and alternative medicine (TM / CAM) not yet have a profession in a united Europe? There are currently only national job profiles in Switzerland and Germany. In an open discussion on the subject of “Boundless Naturopathy in Europe”, Nora Laubstein, Chair of the Association for Natural Medicine in Europe eV (ANME), will discuss on Saturday, December 7, 2013, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the occasion of the 9th alternative practitioner Symposium in Hanau on current perspectives. Developments will also be discussed that result from the practice of medicine in other European countries as well as on the German health care market. Participation is free.
