Why anyone is licensing Naturopaths in Canada or the US is beyond me. It isn't evidence based medicine. Britt Hermes who has a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from an accredited US school turned into a whistleblower. She speaks around the country at science events. Hermes moved to Germany where she earned a Master's in Science and is working on a PhD. She is quite concerned about how a lobby has managed to convince more and more states and provinces to license them or is being lobbied to do so. She felt what she was doing wasn't ethical (not helping people) and saw some really unethical things that led her to leave it. She thinks most Naturopaths realize it but you invested a significant portion of your life and 160,000 on a degree so you push on. Somewhere I saw a Canadian news piece about homeopathic medicine in Canada (which is a different subject). It is sold in pharmacies and stores alongside real medicine and even packaged to look like it. Consumers with sick children have been fooled. Homeopathy is junk (not sure it even rises to the level of junk science).
