The advice given on this website is not written with the intention of replacing sound Medical Advice or a face to face consultation. Up until about twenty years ago anybody could hang a "shingle' up outside their door and call themselves a Naturopath. Many of these practitioners are still covered by the "Grandfather Clause" whereas I have a Diploma of Applied Science from the Academy of Natural Therapies. I am not an Alternate Practitioner. I consider myself a Complementary Practitioner.
I have been working in conjunction with up to thirteen Doctors at any one time for seventeen years now and am more than happy to work with them not against them.
