KPCC Asks: What has been your experience with naturopathic medicine?

LONDON - AUGUST 26:  Staff at Ainsworth Pharmacy make up homeopathic remedies on August 26, 2005 in London. British medical journal The Lancet has attacked the use of homeopathic treatments saying that doctors should be honest about homeopathy's lack of benefit. A joint UK/Swiss survey of 110 trials found no convincing evidence that homeopathy worked any better than a placebo.  (Photo by Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images)

Naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care providers and treat both acute and chronic health conditions. They use a variety of treatments, including clinical nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine and hydrotherapy.
