Autism And Alternatives To Medicine

"Naturopaths, to put it bluntly, are fake doctors. They are fake because they do not have a professional standard of care that is evidence-based and transparent. They have no standard of care – literally anything goes. What they have is a very loose philosophy with a vague appeal to nature fallacy. That’s it. They use an eclectic combination of disproven, fanciful, and outright pseudoscientific interventions. They may also give some basic nutrition advice, but even there they cannot be trusted because they have no standard of evidence."

"Education is great but we clearly need better regulation. The state should not licence professions without a system in place to ensure external validity and transparency. They should not licence quacks and then let them regulate themselves."
