Subject:         Code of Conduct for raw food educators
Date: September 1, 2014 at 1:43 am PST

There are many raw food educators/coaches/counselors/leaders etc out there who are not formally registered health professionals. It is important to point out that even when someone is not registered, there may be laws which stipulate the rules that must be followed, and which are designed to protect the rights of the clients.

An example is the following Code of Conduct for Unregistered Health Professionals in Australia:

Practically, in Australia, anyone who presents themselves as a person dispersing health advice, is considered a health professional, and whether they are registered or not, they have to follow the Code of Conduct. The details of legislation can be found here:

What I would hope to see within the raw food community, is people being familiar with the practices under the Code of Conduct and trying their best to do the right thing. For the examples on what doing the right thing means, see link [1] above.
