I was perusing the internet and noticed that the steaming pile of …baloney known as naturopathy in many states can be licensed as “naturopathic’doctors’”.  PAs, on the other hand,  who are not trained in wackadoodlery, but are trained in evidence based medicine, can’t go to the bathroom without asking permission from their physician overlords.  I’m sure the naturopathic doctors got some blowback but they are licensed to spread their water and snake oil (which may or may not contain snakes and/or oil) Willy nilly.

I have the best/worst ND story ever. One of my oldest friends simply lost his memory. Not amnesia but couldn't remember things and it go so bad he had to stop working. He saw a few people who couldn't sort it out and was referred to a (supposed) neurologist who was also a ND.

The guy comes in and asks him a bunch of questions and then opens this big wooden box full of little vials with different unknow substances. He gets out a tuning fork and gives it a whack and holds it against my friends forehead with his left hand while, with his right index finger, touches all the vials one by one. Finally he says something along the line of "aha!" and pulled the vial out of the case and says "you are deficient in (insert name of some obscure metal)" and Offers to sell him a supplement.

Turns out he had a vertebral artery occlusion. Got it fixed and resumed work.
