CONNECTICUT: Ask State Representatives to Support Health Freedom Bill that Protects Access to Healing Practitioners!

Dear [[First_Name]],

Did you know that 40 percent of Americans use some form of alternative medicine? These services are provided by herbalists, homeopaths and acupuncturists, just to name a few.

Connecticut lawmakers are considering a bill, HB 5759, which would protect your right to access thousands of traditional, complementary and alternative care practitioners in Connecticut.

TAKE ACTION: Tell your state representatives to protect your right to access the healthcare of your choice by passing HB 5759!

HB 5759 would provide an exemption to protect non-invasive alternative healthcare practitioners from being charged with practicing without a license as long as they avoid any of the prohibited conduct listed in the bill, and as long as they provide proper disclosures.  

Safe harbor exemption laws are a great common-sense way of addressing the thousands of healers and practitioners and the many businesses providing services in the public domain, explains the Natural Health Freedom Coalition, which promotes access to all health care information and the freedom of individuals to make their own health care choices.

So far, 10 U.S. states have safe harbor exemption laws, including Minnesota, Rhode Island, California, Louisiana, Idaho, Oklahoma, Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado. Arizona has a safe harbor for homeopaths. About 20 more states have introduced similar legislation.

TAKE ACTION: Tell your state representatives to protect your right to access the healthcare of your choice by passing HB 5759!

Thanks!
