A 2011 Push For Naturopathy in Iowa, Where It is Presently Illegal
here, I briefly cite from an article in Iowa regarding attempted 2011 naturopathy licensure:
001. Ken Black reports for the Times-Republican in "Naturopathic Medicine Could Come to Iowa" [saved 2011-02-27](2011-02-27):
"Dr. Jessica Curcio, president of the Iowa Naturopathic Physicians Association [INPA], is spearheading the effort to get naturopathic medicine recognized as a legal form of medicine in Iowa [...presently] it is not allowed [...in] Iowa [...] 'I really think we'll see floor action on this soon' [she says...] naturopathic physicians are experts [...] Sen. Steve Sodders, D-State Center [...says] 'if you look at their training as it relates to those other medical trainings, they are very similar'."
Note: what does it take to get beyond all this shallowness? What kind of expertise is 'naturopathic knowledge muddle'? I don't get it: naturopathy falsely labels as science that which is hugely science-exterior. That doesn't seem similar to medical training at all. It doesn't seem legal, actually.
