This could be a mine field developing.... and I just am not sure what to think. Ever since I found out that Phizer Pharmaceuticals put in a million dolllars into Bastyr Naturopathic School in Seattle I have been worried about alliances, predjudices, payoffs, funding for studies, and all the nasty deeds that come with pharmaceutical companies.
Do I really want my naturopath trained by a pharmaceutical company? Absolutely not. But none the less it is happening across the board in all naturopathic schools.
They do come out weilding a prescription pad you know.
Do I want my medical doctor promoting himself and a natural healer? Absolutely not.
Until the industry can clean up its ethics and morality I say keep a clear and difinative line drawn in the sand. That way the consumer can know exactly what they are getting.
That the two diciplines interface in afacility may be OK but I just don't see how it can happen on equal footing. Naturopaths know their superiority in many areas of health care. How long can you watch a patient that came to you be inticed back into the world of poisons without getting really upset. And of course naturopaths recognize the need for the skill of surgery and emergency medicine and would aquiesece instantly in cases of true need. I just see a real hot bed developing if things get too close.
What would the medical (drug) doctor have to offer of ture merit when it comes to developing a long term health strategy that is drug free and disease free?
Its like when the patient comes in you say to them......Now, we need to select which physician would be best for you. Do you want to take about $400 dollars worth of drugs with toxic side effects each month for the reaminer of your life or your would you really like to clean house and reorganize, cure your condition and live twice as long as you would while on the drugs. Just sign here please!
Please be advised
I advocate all health blogs to linked to NMT.
Read them and explore MMS and CS.
It may be the best chance that you have to heal yourself
of long term and chronic illness.
