Appearance for a Caution Sep 06, 2018 College of Naturopaths of Ontario On September 6, 2018, the Member attended before a panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (the Panel) to be cautioned.

At the outset of the Caution, the Panel outlined the concerns related to the Member’s false or misleading advertising, implying a specialization in the profession, and advertising and providing services that he was not authorized to perform.

The Member was cautioned that in accordance with October 13, 2015 Advisory issued by the College, any advertising of naturopathic care addressing cancer symptoms must be clear in stating that it is intended to be adjunctive to conventional treatments and not misleading to the public who may interpret it to be used in place of conventional cancer treatments, or as a cure for cancer.

In addition, the Panel was concern about the Member’s use of the term Naturopathic Oncologist and statements that he “specialized” and had “additional training and expertise” in naturopathic cancer treatment. The Member was reminded that Naturopaths do not have specialize training in treating cancer or the tools to diagnose cancer, and that Member may not use a term, title or designation indicating or implying a specialization in an area of practice of the profession except in accordance with any formal specialist recognition program of the College.

The Panel further stated its concern with the Member’s failure to amend his advertising while being aware that some areas of his advertising did not meet the requirements outlined in the Advertising Standard of Practice. In view of the Panel, this raised very serious concerns regarding the Member’s governability as a Naturopath.

The Member was reminded that he must adhere to the College’s regulation at all times.
