Don't hinder access to alternative medicine

I am writing in response to the new law disallowing naturopathic doctors to write prescriptions for their patients.

I have used  naturopathic doctors for 12 years now and depend on them not only for a second opinion, but to help stay healthy. They call it alternative medicine for a reason, it gives us an option for fighting health problems. These are well educated doctors that do not need to be shackled by more by laws that hinder them from doing their jobs.
