Question by Optimist: How do you feel about the licensing of Naturopathic physicians?
Currently, 16 states, the District of Columbia, and the United States territories of Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands have licensing laws for Naturopathic doctors. There are 4 accredited colleges of Naturopathic medicine in the U.S. How do you feel about Naturopaths being licensed to diagnose and treat disease?
Answer by SmartAss
Well, a license is something, while it’s also nothing.
I got my best massage in Kuala Lumpur from a non-licensed man, without any diploms. He understood the body, as well his as others.
At the other hand I have had therapy from people with a university diplom which had a lot of mental knowledge and no understanding.
Statistically you will maybe have more chance to have a good treatment by a licensed practitioner.
But that’s just statistics…
How high you value statistics is your business…
