A Close Look at Naturopathy
Naturopathy, sometimes referred to as "natural medicine,"
is a largely pseudoscientific approach said to "assist nature"
, "support the body's own innate capacity to achieve optimal
health" , and "facilitate the body's inherent healing
mechanisms."  Naturopaths assert that diseases are the
body's effort to purify itself, and that cures result from increasing
the patient's "vital force." (Whatever that is!)
