Fuskie, stop and think. Your doctor is paid by his practice or hospital. And who pays their bills? The pharmaceutical giants. So of course it's SOP for them to push prescription medication over naturopathic remedies every day of the week.

There is a lot of research, testing, and verification that goes into prescription medication. How much goes into naturopathic remedies? What I can find seems not to be very rigorous and not very repeatable, done without adequate controls, and not done using "double blind techniques"

And it's certainly true that the people selling naturopathic remedies are also in it for the profit. I'm afraid I can't agree with what you have said.
