Who We Are

The American Naturopathic Research Institute (ANRI) and the Naturopathic Oncology Research Institute (NORI) are co-dependent, non-profit, research institutes focused on studying, understanding, and developing Naturopathically oriented solutions for persistent problems in healthcare. ANRI/NORI have jointly formed this IRB in order to provide oversight of basic and clinical research related to therapeutic interventions and strategies that are based upon the historical imperatives that have shaped the evolution of modern Naturopathic medical practice. Our research oversight includes, but is not limited to, safety and efficacy studies for novel, natural therapeutics as well as study design for use within the clinical setting of independent practitioners to validate safety and efficacy of complex, multi-component therapeutic interventions. This IRB serves an international community with oversight over a number of small, clinician run, independent clinical studies being conducted worldwide as well as several large university–based, federally grant-funded, investigational studies being conducted in the US, Canada and Europe.

“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom… Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people who want doctors and treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.”
