Homeopaths are licensed in only three states in the U.S. (Arizona, Connecticut, and Nevada), although some practitioners may hold other medical licenses. Naturopaths, chiropractors, or acupuncturists may also have taken training to practice homeopathy. In addition to the state licenses, there are national certifying boards for medical doctors, chiropractors, and naturopaths who want to practice the full classical specialty of homeopathy.
The homeopathic community is in the process of certifying the training of nonmedically licensed homeopathic counselors. Until this comes to pass, it is best to seek out a licensed M.D., D.C. or D.O. who is also trained in homeopathy to avoid a potentially dangerous misdiagnosis of your condition.
Be sure to ask where the homeopath received training and how long the individual has been practicing this form of medicine.
