Naturopathy - Medical Scam

     With all the discussion of measles vaccination the pseudo-medical field of Naturopathy comes into focus.
Much of the ideology and methodological underpinnings of naturopathy are in conflict with the paradigm of evidence-based medicine. Their training adds up to a very small amount of that of primary care doctors. Many naturopaths oppose vaccination based in part on the early views that shaped the profession
With the unquestionable success of vaccinations one must question the credibility of any political candidate or organization that encourages unnecessary distrust in this medical miracle.  Without a question no valid debate should exists about its efficacy. The motives of the politicians is obvious and disingenuous.  But what about the Naturopathy scheme and those who practice it?  HUGE caution is necessary of any person claims to practice it or chooses to include the credentials of ND (Naturapathy doctor)

In Tennessee the practice of Naturopathy is ILLEGAL.

2010 Tennessee Code: Title 63 - Professions Of The Healing Arts
    Chapter 6 - Medicine and Surgery; Part 2 - General Provisions 63-6-205 - Practice of naturopathy. [Amended effective June 30, 2012.]

          (B)  In any instance involving natural health information exchanges, the seller obtains a signed acknowledgement from the buyer that the seller is neither a licensed practitioner of the healing arts in this state, nor meets the recognized qualification criteria that would allow the provision of any form of diagnosis, treatment recommendation or medical care in this state. For the purposes of meeting the requirements of this section, the seller shall keep the signed acknowledgement from the buyer on file for a period of three (3) years.
