It just means that we will most likely never be able to prove that it is effective [...] where some holistic health practitioners get into trouble is when they present a healing modality that is fundamentally non-scientific as being science-based. This in an unethical practice known as pseudoscience which unfortunately seems to be increasing in recent times [...] the main thing to remember about pseudoscience is that just because something sounds scientific doesn't mean it is scientific. Perhaps more important is to realize that having a scientific degree or medical license does not make a practitioner immune to pseudoscience. While pseudoscientific beliefs and practices are more commonly found among lay practitioners, many of them are also practiced by naturopathic physicians and medical doctors [...] holistic therapies [...] the problem arises when a practitioner presents them as being science-based when they are not. What scientific investigation offers us [...] with non-scientific holistic practices [...] science-based medicine practitioners [...] a 2012 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that the proportion of scientific research retracted due to fraud has increased tenfold since 1975 and that more than two-thirds of retracted studies are due to scientific misconduct [...] we cannot simply hang our hats on 'trusting in science' because science is conducted by human beings with a wide array of biases, ethical standards, and ulterior motives [...] when choosing the right naturopathic doctor, there are three main factors to keep in mind [...] the level of utilization of science-based vs. nonscientific modalities";

"homeopathy is a practical science [...] curative use of homeopathic medicines is most effective when a remedy's symptoms (found in a repertory, materia medica, or other practical guide book) are most closely matched to a patient's symptoms [...] acute (recently acquired) symptoms are often effectively treated with higher potencies (12C, 30C, and higher) [...] do not change the remedy until you are sure that the previously effective remedy has finished its work [...] homeopathy can be astoundingly effective and deceptively subtle [...]  ;

"it’s important to note that naturopathic doctors are trained at accredited, four-year, post-graduate medical colleges. The training consists of conventional basic sciences courses such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and microbiology along with physical, clinical and lab diagnosis during the first two years of education [...] they must take and successfully pass the NPLEX part I basic sciences boards and NPLEX part II clinical sciences boards";

The four-year naturopathic medical program incorporates over 4,500 hours of classroom training in basic medical science courses, clinical sciences [...] we have reached an age where there is ample scientific and empirical evidence to support the use of both conventional and alternative treatments";

"naturopathic physicians artfully blend modern, cutting-edge diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with ancient and traditional methods. They are succeeding in their goal to present the world with a healing paradigm founded on science and respect for nature. Because naturopathic physicians believe in understanding patients on a cellular level, they actively pursue the latest biochemical findings which relate to the body. Alternative therapeutics, such as: botanical medicine, nutrition, acupuncture and homeopathy, are increasingly being supported by scientific evidence [...] ND's are trained in medical sciences [...] are naturopathic treatments scientific? Many of the therapies used by Naturopathic Physicians have been subjected to controlled scientific studies. Dr. Munro makes every attempt to stay up to date with medical literature in order to use therapies with documented scientific efficacy, or ones that offer a long history of clinical safety and effectiveness [...] is there any research on homeopathy? Yes, there is scientific research to support that homeopathy works";
