"nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods has always been a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine. A growing body of scientific knowledge in this area is reflected in numerous professional journals of nutrition and dietary sciences, validating the naturopathic approach to Dr. Bill Nager - Naturopathic Physician, Chiropractor, Acupuncture - Manchester CT Connecticutdiet and nutrition [...] many plant substances are powerful medicines, with advantages over conventional drugs. They are effective and safe when used properly, in the right dose and in the proper combinations with other herbal or treatments. A resurgence of scientific research in Europe and Asia is demonstrating that some plant substances are superior to synthetic drugs’ in clinical situations. Naturopathic doctors are trained in both the art and the science of botanical medicine";

"in what ways are naturopathic and conventional physicians alike? The academic training in medical sciences of naturopathic and conventional physicians is similar [...] the first two years - like those of an orthodox MD - are in basic medical sciences [...] is naturopathic medicine scientific? Yes. Naturopathic medicine has its own unique body of knowledge, evolved and refined for centuries. It also incorporates scientific advances from medical disciplines throughout the world.  Many of the individual therapies of naturopathic medical practice have been scientifically validated, especially in the areas of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, immunology and hydrotherapy. The trend is that those naturopathic methods which are tested are validated. More detailed information is available from the AANP.  The research departments of naturopathic medical colleges also conduct ongoing research, exploring experimental models appropriate to the eclectic and individualized approach of naturopathic practice. They have also produced state of the art double blind and placebo controlled studies, published in peer reviewed scientific journals";

She utilizes blood type science in the alleviation of disease, as well as many different modalities of medicine such as acupuncture, homeopathy, aromatherapy, holographic memory resolution, soul retrieval/extraction and botanical medicine [...] think about what quantum physics might really be: the science of manifestation.
