of petition GOUV. for the recognition
under the laws of the S-40 chapter of the trade-union
laws, published in the Official Gazette of Quebec in August
1991, the CPMDQ is a Trade union with nonlucrative goals
which manages mainly therapists with-in alternative medicine.
Since 1991, the Corporation also gathers naturopathes. The
CPMDQ legally reserved the name “ Quebec Union of Professional
Naturopaths ” with the Registraire of the Inspector general
of Quebec. The recording of this name was to identify
our naturopath members in a respective group of their
Medicine Counsil of Canada"
Council of Naturopathic Examiners"
Conseil des Examinateurs en
Naturopathie du Québec
who at summer formed
like service with the profession of the naturopathes.
Its objective is to standardize the formation of the naturopathes
of Quebec. The “CENQ” makes sure of the quality of teaching
as well as competence of the students and/or candidates
who answered requirements for acceptability of examination.
The “CENQ” is thus an office of examination and quality
control of the education of the naturopathes. The council
of five members “CENQ” works in consultation with a Consultative
Committee which is structured to have representatives
CENQ is a non-profit organization independent and of which
the goal is to prepare high quality, the reliable examinations
which evaluate the competence of the naturopathes of entry-level
to go well to the doctor naturopathy license/register.
The Council of the CENQ has chairs of examination which
supervises the process of development and examination,
is charged to receive the candidates naturopathes, wishing
to be recognized by an assembly of their piers.
entitlement of the naturopath's title;
title of Naturopath is a label of competence, a reference,
following what the naturopathe will be registered in the
directory of the Quebec Union of Professional Naturopaths.
may also be able to present himself at the General meeting
if he wishes to become a member of the Board of directors
of the Quebec Union of Professional Naturopaths.
Commission of naturopaths;
commission meets to receive the candidates whom are entitled
to recieve the title of Naturopath with at least five
members, except with the exemption of a vote by the A.C.
Punctually, any member of the board can sit at this commission.
meets once a month to receive the candidates whose file
of request for establishment of the naturopath title is
complete, i.e. presents all written information answering
the requested criteria and information.
discussion with the candidate lasts thirty minutes, the
following which the Members of the Commission of naturopaths
vote (they cannot abstain from), in favour of the establishment
of the naturopath's title or the adjournment.
decision is ratified by the board, starting from the report/ratio
which is submitted to him by other naturopath members
of the (CENQ) present during the interview of the candidate.
the case of an adjournment, the candidate is invited by
mail to deepen such or such insufficient criterion. The
preliminary study of the file generally avoids the convocation
of a candidate who would not present any qualification
at the trade of naturopathe.
more so as during adhesion to the Trade union, three possibilities
are proposed which distinguish the people being able to
claim with the establishment of those which do not enter
the criteria: associate members (it acts people exerting
another trade but wishing to receive the information disseminated
by the trade union of the naturopathes), them
studying (the student registered in a recognized educational
establishment), and the adherent members (who are already
naturopathe, even beginners).
addition to the reception of the candidates, it (CENQ)
worked more specifically on the manner of evaluating the
qualities awaited at the applicant with establishment.
Thus for each principal criterion:
- the professional experience.
- the supervision.
we sought to distinguish the observable indices from the
measurable and quantifiable indices of a naturopath.
to assess is the qualities of a naturopathe are eminently
subjective (psychotherapy), how thus to objectify part
of the necessary criteria?
report of this work will be soon available in the form
of summary in this heading.
of discipline for naturopathes;
The CPMDQ established the highest standards formation
ethics with, inter alia, a committee of discipline of
the naturopathes which treats effectively very felt sorry
for written of the public.
“Alternative medicine” are medicines which do not use
or very little the chemical substances, nor the surgery.

users of alternative medicine, Office of the professions
of Quebec, August 1991, page (6) article (1.5)
in spite of the absence of legislation, the naturopathy
is not illegal. It is simply a profession not yet legally
recognized by the Office of the professions of Quebec
as it is the situation for the physical teachers, the
biologists, and for good of other disciplines which however
have a formation recognized by the ministry for Education
or that of the Higher education and Science, which is
not yet the case for the naturopathy.
its name indicates it, naturopathy called upon natural
methods to bring a quality of life, form and environment.
In spite of a good hygiene of life, we all are likely
to be exposed to various stresses or of living experiments
harmful, traumatic, which will undermine our health. The
profession of naturopathe, in the field of the care of
health, is centered on the prevention and it employs natural
methods and substances to improve the re-establishment
of the people. The naturopathes examine the patients,
pose diagnoses and look after the patients. Their method
stresses the support and stimulation of the mechanisms
of cure inherent in the body. It will be then necessary
to intervene to choose therapeutic the most adequate.
Expensive with the antiques traditions, the naturopathy
treats vital energy human being of which great care should
be taken. This vital energy, partly generic, becomes exhausted
little by little with the age and the many ones devitalizing,
for example; tobacco, alcohol, the abuse drugs or drug,
chemical pollution, the electromagnetic ones, stress,

HOMEOPATHY: the prestigious medical
journal Lancet, reports in its issue today that homeopathy
doesn't work. Homeopathy has been around for hundreds
of years, and it is considered "alternative" medicine
in Canada. Lancet, based on a study, questions the effects
of homeopathy compared to a placebo. CBC's Dave Bronstetter
