    If any of the "Naturopathic" practices could be proven in a properly controlled (and hopefully blinded) study they would cease to be alternative medicine and simply become ‘medicine’. The idea that ‘Western Medicine’, what fans of ‘woo based practices’ call ‘Allopathy’ simply ‘masks symptoms’ is false and this should be apparent to anyone with even a laymen’s understanding of history. Though naturopathy and other such treatments have hundreds, if not thousands of years ‘head start’ on ‘Western Medicine’, they’ve been completely eclipsed.
    Our quality and quantity of life have grown unbelievably in a very short period of time.  Many of the ailments we are today struggling to understand and deal with are a direct result of our increased lifespans!
    Smallpox, TB, Polio, Mumps, Measles have been eradicated or greatly reduced, HIV – a nasty killer just a decade or so ago is now put into near remission by new drug regiments; asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, depression, OCD and so many other chronic, potentially life threatening diseases now have effective treatments with minimal side affects (those affected can often live full, productive ‘normal’ lives). They’ve vastly improved survival & detection rates for most cancers and it goes on and on…
    The improvements in the understanding, monitoring etc of infants has also lead to a slashing of infant mortality…Just a few short generations ago burying a child  would be almost common-place; and it still is in parts of the world where "Western Medicine" hasn’t well established itself or made itself accessible
