Alex Loyd and Healing Codes

     A reader of this blog has directed us to "Cancer Cure" and "Healing Cure" promoter Alex Loyd of Leipers Fork, Tennessee. It is reported that he has a PhD in Psychology and a Naturopathic Doctorate, which we have yet to verify.
     According to the website , naturopathic physicians combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. Naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. Their role is to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.
      Naturopathic physicians work in private practices, hospitals, clinics and community health centers. This website also states qualified naturopathic physicians are licensed health-care practitioners.
     On first blush, naturopathic medicine sounds a lot like "energy medicine" which has no basis in science-based medicine, but we have a lot of research to do on this topic and are interested in hearing experience that readers may have had with Dr Alex Loyd, other than the promotion that is plastered all over the internet.

Comments from a retired physician about claims of Loyd
     Also do not wish to take the time to research such a ridiculous claim but a couple of thoughts from skimming the first link (from the above noted reader).
     I've mentioned that my father spent two years in his late teens in the mid 1920's as a fiddler for his uncle's medicine show. His uncle sold various home concocted similarly ridiculous cures. People from all over the USA continued to request more long after he had died and we had used his stock to start campfires. Many ills are still not well addressed by conventional medicine. Those sufferers will grasp at even the most ridiculous claims for relief.  If this really worked the process would be adopted as standard of care in under five years. Physicians are not that set in our ways.
