It’s important to keep in mind that there can be a difference between clinical effectiveness and scientifically proven effectiveness [...] modern scientific studies are now validating the use of a variety of dietary supplements traditionally used by naturopathic doctors [...] lack of funding and restricted resources for research into natural therapies hamper progress in scientific validation [...] where would I find research supporting the scientifically proven effectiveness of naturopathic medicine?  Scientific journals of many disciplines report research that supports naturopathic treatment protocols. In fact, the Textbook of Natural Medicine surveyed the scientific basis for about one hundred naturopathic procedures and found more than four thousand scientific references to support those methods";
