Naturopathy Is Not Lifestyle Medicine
Naturopaths use a much lower level of evidence than lifestyle medicine practitioners. In fact all complementary medicine uses a much lower level of evidence. Allied Health Practitioners are not lifestyle medicine practitioners. All of these practitioners can become lifestyle medicine practitioners but they have to do the post graduate courses first. Naturopaths are often defined by the medicine they use, in the public eye, but this is clearly wrong.
Lifestyle Medicine is a stand alone discipline. Lifestyle Medicine is a discipline defined by evidence based post graduate courses and research. It is rapidly becoming one of the major mainstream medicine disciplines world wide. Diseases are reversed by using minimalistic interventions, prevention will play a major role in healthcare.
