Hello MS3,

Thank you for your response. I will take your comments into consideration in my decision. I am somewhat suspect of your claim that you were taught that illnesses were due to the “trendy diagnosis of the week””. After all some of these modalities have been used for thousands of years in various cultures so I find it hard to believe that they are so susceptible to weekly change. This sounds to me a little more like another type of medical philosophy which relies on corporate driven research. But alas, I will stop there. I do think that both allopathy and naturopathy have wonderful things to offer humanity. I do recognize that gross trauma such as gun shot wounds, or having a limb severed should be addressed by allopathy and that certain genetic birth defects can and should be corrected to some extent by surgery, one of my best friends is a hydrocephalic. I also realize that for many people who have been subject to our modern world of intense stress pollution and lack of emphasis on prevention that many require allopathic intervention due to the extent their conditions have reached. To help teach people how not to allow conditions to reach this end and to help individuals reverse often chronic conditions, induced or facilitated by stress and lack of awareness of what non-toxic natural substances and procedures are available, Naturopathic medicine can be literally life saving or at least quite life enhancing.
