ARONAH – protecting the public, advancing the profession

An independent regulatory body to ensure minimum standards for naturopathy and Western herbal medicine in Australia

The Australian Register of Naturopaths and Herbalists has been established to provide minimum standards of education and practice for naturopathy and Western herbal medicine. The Board has developed this independent register which mirrors government requirements for the regulation of health practitioners.  Specifically, ARONAH mirrors the statutorily regulated Boards administered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA) of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme. Naturopathy and Western herbal medicine are not regulated professions in Australia and do not currently fall under this scheme.

ARONAH formed in December 2010 and the ARONAH register opened in July 2013.
