Exercise of the Medical Permission

A naturopath is who practises medicine professionally without being appointed as a doctor. The practice of medicine is any professional or commercial activity to detect, cure or alleviate diseases, suffering or bodily harm in human beings, even if it is carried out in the service of others.

If you want to establish yourself as a naturopath for the practice of medicine, you need a permit. Permission entitles you to the professional title "Heilpraktiker" or "Heilpraktikerin".
