Bastyr University Library Historical Collections: Naturopathy

Trace the Development of the Profession


Bastyr University historical documents provide a fascinating insight into the development of the field of Naturopathy. Looking through our materials you can trace the conversations that took place in the 1950s, as practitioners started the process of codifying the guiding philosophies of the field.

The conversation is still going on as the profession continues to reflect on and refine what "Naturopathy" means. The Bastyr archives have provided material for scholars who are tracking the historical debates and decisions that have shaped the modern profession.
