Not hard: Naturopathic practitioners offer sensitive and charismatic counsel but have no serious diagnostic or therapeutic skills. They depend upon their public recognition and so advertise, run "health" fairs and prey upon those who mistrust conventional doctors. Any that are "recommended" are self recommended and not by actual medical doctors. Let the buyer beware. ...Read more

Why would my naturopathic doctor not recommend a 2 hr glucose test even if I have hypoglycemia symptoms?
Not needed: In my opinion, hypoglycemia is a clinical diagnosis. If you get shaky, irritable, nauseous or even dizzy when you haven't eaten in over 2 hours, you have hypoglycemia. The treatment is diet changes, eliminating, refined sugars, adding small amounts of protein every 2 hours. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma 11 years ago,but I prefer to follow a naturopathic doctor, may i know your opinion about naturophatic medicine?
No: People should stick with our regular allopathic medicine. There are as many ways to practice regular allopathic medicine as there are doctors. Each doctor is a little different in personality and practice style. After all, we're all human. I don't recommend any other types of "doctors". ...Read more
Are Lyme tests Elisa & western blot actually unreliable half the time like holistic/naturopath doctors or LLMD's say?
Not true: Naturopaths spend a great deal of time and effort promoting themselves by debunking conventional medicine. But who do you think they go to when they are sick? The tests you mention are mostly reliable but there is a small margin of error for any tests. To say these are unreliable at the 50% level is marketing and untrue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was given 500 mg by a naturopathic Doctor. I am on40 mg of Prozac (fluoxetine). Are these two safe together. How risky is it for serotonin syndrome?
500 mg of what?: You neglected to tell us 500 mg of what so it's impossible to know, but I'm guessing 500 mg of L-tryptophan. While tryptophan and Prozac (fluoxetine) can theoretically cause serotonin syndrome, in a research study 2000 mg of tryptophan and 20 mg of Prozac (fluoxetine) was safe and showed better outcomes than Prozac (fluoxetine) alone: http://tinyurl.com/h7z53le 500 mg of Tryptophan is unlikely to cause this but watch for symptoms. ...Read more

Who knows ?: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". Be careful.

Why won't western medical doctors use more natural remedies then drugs? There is great value in chinese and naturopathic remedies. Why not combine ?
You're right, but...: These products are not regulated like prescription and over the counter drugs endorsed by the fda are. 500 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) is 500 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen). I have no idea how much active product is in one tablet of willow bark extract or milk thistle. Not can i ensure my patient is getting the same amount across different brands. Finally, medical drugs do a lot of the same things that herb do, only better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
