"training for naturopathic doctors consists of attending a four-year, graduate-level accredited naturopathic medical school. A bachelors degree which includes standard pre-medical courses is required for admission. Naturopathic education starts with the same basic medical sciences required of all doctors. The second phase of training consists of the diagnostic sciences [...] the naturopathic physicians licensing exam (NPLEX). This is a set of 13 individual exams: 5 in the basic medical sciences, and 8 covering the clinical diagnostic sciences and naturopathic treatment [...ND schools include] National University of Health Sciences";

"naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and lifestyle counseling. Naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care practitioners and they can also complement and enhance health care services provided by other health care professionals. They cooperate with other branches of medical science";

This is where titles such as 'quacks', 'pseudoscience' and 'voo-doo practitioners' are used [...] not only are naturopaths taught varying degrees of science, but also modalities [...] make sure they have a license displayed in their office from one of the following schools [...] National University of Health Sciences (NUHS): Lombard, Illinois [...] successfully passed the 2-part NPLEX (Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examination) board exam series regulated by NABNE (North American Board of Naturopathic Examiners): Part 1: Biomedical Science, Part 2: Core Clinical Science [...] my MD colleagues told me they had a 30-minute lecture on ‘alternative medicine’ where everyone was clumped into non-scientific practices along with case studies of poor practice management [...] NDs and MDs have similar science training [...] science credits earned at the University of Washington MD program and Bastyr University ND program.

"supporters of the conventional medical model will argue that there is limited ‘scientific’ evidence to support the use of integrative medicine and its inherent naturopathic principles. When using the term ‘scientific’, they are referring to randomized controlled trials, or RCT’s. RCT’s have long been considered to represent the ‘gold standard’ in medical research. In simple terms, elements of RCT design features random allocation of treatment recipients versus those who do not receive treatment (control group). There are many advantages to this design, but there are also many limitations. One such limitation is that often only one ‘treatment’, ‘intervention’ or ‘substance’ is studied. This reductionist concept simply does not function in the integrative medical setting where health is dependent on a multitude of factors [...] thus, to understand the true value of the whole-person approach to care, the very ‘scientific model’ used to determine whether or not there is value and how much benefit is to be obtained from the intervention, must be adapted to the art of the type of medicine that we are seeking to understand – in this case, whole-person, individualized medical care rather than disease-model medicine [...] at the International Research Congress on Integrative Health (May 15-18, 2012), a recently published study of naturopathic treatment for diabetes was presented using a different ‘scientific model’ than the RCT. The study compared type 2 diabetics receiving adjunctive naturopathic care (ANC) with those who did not [...] yet despite the evidence presented in these studies, many MD’s and medical researchers would contend that the study does not follow the gold standard in medical research and therefore does not ‘fit’ the definition of ‘scientific evidence’ and is rejected because it is considered to have limited or no value simply because it does not fit the RCT model' [...] in search of the science to support whole person, integrative medical care, the emerging guild of board-certified integrative M.D.s may use a strategy favored by the naturopathic doctors 30 years ago'";
