Naturopathic medicine is defined to include such procedures as venipuncture, naturopathic acupuncture, and minor office procedures.  Naturopathic doctors may not perform surgery, practice obstetrics, administer ionizing radiation, or prescribe, dispense, or administer any controlled substances or any prescription-only drugs except those listed on the naturopathic formulary adopted by the Kansas board.  The council consists of five members, with the governor appointing a member of the general public, three naturopathic doctors appointed by the Board of Healing Arts, and the president or designee of the Board of Healing Arts.  Insofar as possible, persons appointed to the council shall be from different geographic areas.
