Forum:Naturopathic Medicine would not be so bad if they were more evidence based

I know there is not much evidence for Naturopathic Medicine but it would not be so bad if they actually went by actual science. But what I will give N.D's is that there is more evidence for their practice than Chiropractors (Not saying much though)--Rationalzombie94 (talk) 01:24, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Citation needed on that claim. Chiropractors do have evidence that their techniques are effective at treating lower back pain. What do naturopaths have? CorruptUser (talk) 02:56, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
If naturopathic medicine were in fact evidence-based, it would converge with conventional medicine to the point of being hard to distinguish from it. The only difference would be that some doctors would wear white frock coats, and others would tie-dye theirs. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 03:53, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
Or to quote Tim Mincin: "You know what they call alternative medicine that works? Medicine" Super Dude,What does mine say? Sweet! 10:22, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
