  1. yes, and even allopathic docs when they first diagnose diabetes, they tell the patient to change their eating habits, but people dont, like my Dad… he has diabetes & still eats all the stuff his allopathic doc told him not to… a naturopath could really help a person bring their whole body into a state of homeostasis through herbal supplements, nutrition & other treatments, their recommendations work well along with allopathic treatments which r generally better suited to acute conditions

  2. -continued… b/c of their intellectual immaturity about reality… this is why they are also not smart enough to figure out that big Pharma has them, the AMA, the med schools, and everyone else in conventional wisdom land by the balls.

    I have six friends with whom I went to college that are now MDs (3 guys/3 girls). I opted for the Marine Corps after college so you’d think they should be more intelligent than me. All six of them are dumber than anvils about anything related to the real world.

  3. A problem in convincing conventional wisdom (MDs, PharmDs, etc) that they aren’t all that smart is that they’ve been taught abstract concepts since they were in honors sciences in high school. B/c of the finite methodology employed by med school curriculum (at least in USA), they continue this mode of non-thinking into their late 20s. That’s about the time the brain begins to question paradigms, rethink the ‘facts’, & begin to use inductive reasoning. In short, they never mature intellectually.

  4. Practices that may/may-not fall under naturopathy that are welcomed under western medicine (to varying degrees, of course): Various forms of exercise, diets, and acupuncture.

    Practices that are not acceptable forms of medicine: Homeopathy.

    The problem with naturopathy is that it encompasses many treatments, prescriptive and preventative… Some are legitimate, some are not. Naturopathic medicine doesn’t require evidence, or testing, to verify it’s accounts of effectiveness.

  5. Jesus heals people. Mohamed heals people. Zeus heals people. Positive thinking heals people.

    I’m not saying there isn’t a lot to be said for exploring all aspects of healing/medicine, however, there are plenty of practices that fall under naturopathy (a huge umbrella term) that are complete bologna. This isn’t to say that some practices are ineffective – On the contrary. Naturopathic medicine that can be tested, falsified, and have its’ results be duplicated end up in western medicine.

  6. Homeopathy falls under naturopathy. Homeopathy is completely ridiculous.

    I’m not saying there isn’t a lot to be said for some forms of treatment/therapy that fall under naturopathy… However, there are treatments that are effective, and there are treatments that aren’t. There are also treatments that are placebo effect (Which, IMO, placebos are VERY powerful). However, unless data can be collected, falsified, and tested… Then it’s all snake-oil.

  7. I can’t really speak for homeopathy since I haven’t done any research on it, but  naturopathy has been documented in many cases curing all kinds of “incurable diseases” such as diabetes, and some forms of cancer. It’s too bad anything that can’t be patented, or make pharmaceutical companies money is called quick medicine.

  8. Granted, there ARE naturopathic methods that work… However, things like homeopathy are a deluded joke – Of which, the only results are that of placebo effects.

    The areas of naturopathy that actually work are tested, falsified and improved upon – These become absorbed into standard scientific medicine and, in turn, are no longer really naturopathic.

    Evidence and logic is what should guide medicine, not faith and mysticism, both of which are common place in naturopathy

  9. @TW157ER Listen, I don’t have time for discussion with no facts. If you are claiming it is quackery, than show me your information and how you derived at this conclusion. Because on my end, I have scientific based evidence, and patients with MRIs depicting malignant tumors which have been cure through naturopathic care. The problem is you are concrete in your unfounded opinion and you are closed off to learning anything new. You are limiting yourself in your education. Be well.

  10. I love how people want to argue but they can’t answer the questions you ask them. All the naysayers can say is that it’s quackery. You are not intelligent, you are just a pompous ass who just want to rant and rave with ridiculous notions that you can cure a symptom. Again, ANSWER my questions. But you can’t. So therefore, there is no point in arguing with your trolls because you will never be enlightened. You are a waste of my time. Good day.

  11. A comment filled with no data or any rationale statement. Give me something to debate and I will. I have done the evidence, it’s called journals. Second, go refute The Bruzynski Movie. But you won’t. YOu’ll just keep spewing your opinion without looking at the evidence. What’s the point of even debating with you. You are just another fool among many. LET ME STATE MY OPINION AND NOT LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE THAT SOMEONE ELSE SAYS POUND MY CHEST WITH MY OWN POMPOUS IGNORANCE!!!

  12. Allopathic medicine doesn’t cure anything. It attempts to cure SYMPTOMS. This is impossible. What medicine has become is over run by Big Pharma. The philosophy has changed. Now, you have a diagnosis BASED on symptoms. THEN, you treat the diagnosis (which is really just a list of symptoms) with medications that make a lot of people money. That’s the bottom line. And IF it wasn’t, then the FDA wouldn’t have stonewalled Dr. Bruzynski with his cure for cancer. Sorry naysayers, you lose.

  14. @TW157ER It’s called root vs route. It’s semantics and they are both correct. You are just one of the many people in this world who has an opinion based what you hear, but yet has nothing to do with information you have actually gained on your own. So, then what you do, is you find the simplest of things to find fault as to discredit someone. Really, because she says a word differently than you it makes her a fraud? Either you are 12, or just one very uneducated adult.

  15. If you naysayers actually do some research for once in your life and watch the two documentaries I mentioned, you’ll see why not all trials are noteworthy. Anecdotal evidence to me is just as good, if not better in some cases. So, go read your eyes to tears at earth clinic dot com and see how people are HEALED and gotten better with naturopathic care.

  16. Here’s a point to ponder to all the ppl have an opinion because the allopathic community says so. If naturopathic care doesn’t work, then why was it continued to be practiced for centuries and millenia long before allopathic Big Pharma took over? Why do ppl pay out of pocket to continue seeing an ND? I guess they’re all delusional right?How about you go SHADOW an ND and LEARN something so you don’t sound like an idiot. Seriously. Because that’s what you sound like – condeming w/o investigation

  17. What planet do you live on? 5000 MORE clinical hours? LOL Dude, ND’s have more schooling than MD’s. ND’s have a harder curriculum. The classes are the same, the boards are the same. Why don’t you actually look at the curriculum side by side. And you are writing an academic article no less? You should fail. You haven’t the faintest idea of what you are talking about. ND’s have to learn ALL that an MD does AND all the other modalities – herbs, homeopathy, manipulation, etc etc

  18. And just where do you think Allopathic medicines are derived from? You people have absolutely no idea of what you are even talking about. Do yourself a favor and watch the marketing of madness – are we all insane so you can stop sounding foolish. Rather than disagree with no basis for your opinion, do some actual research into claims and facts shown.

  19. You clearly have no idea of what you are talking about. You actually sound completely foolish and uneducated.You should understand that and stop parroting people who you think know something, and do your own research. You may want to actually READ a journal before spewing your unfounded opinion. Try NCCAM, or the many others out there BASED on scientific research, data and clinical trials. It’s called MONEY! Go watch The Bruzynski Movie and gain some understanding of TPTB!

  20. It’s not comparable to an MD’s education at all. MD’s get on average 5,000 more clinical hours of training, and they aren’t taught to use completely ineffectual treatments like homeopathy. I am currently writing an academic article on naturopaths, and the research all points to one conclusion: naturopaths should not have prescribing rights.
