In brief: Non doctor treatment
Naturopaths are individuals who provide treatment based upon a curriculum which essentially says the body will heal itself with proper diet, exercise and the administration of 'natural' herbs.
Few of their ideas have ever had clinical trials and their stock in trade is to debunk allopathic medicine. They wear white coats and call themselves 'doc'. Let the buyer beware.
