    sbhikes, that annoys the crap out of me, too! Homeopathy is patently absurd, yet I always see supposedly learned alternative medicine practitioners including it in their services. Any credence given to homeopathy whatsoever is a dealbreaker for me in hiring someone's services.

    To jump on the homeopathy bunny trail....

    Actual homeopathy is a load of crock, but what gets me is when actual medicine gets labelled "homeopathic" simply because it is not a standard-chemical-medicine.

    Those Hyland's teething tablets actually work. I don't know why. How can that actually be "homeopathic"?

    And what really got me recently was I got some activated charcoal caps because my husband came down with food poisoning. On the front of the box it was labelled "Homeopathic"! what? Activated charcoal is not "homeopathic"! In Europe doctors will write you a script for it!

    To the OP: If you go MD you could get certified in nutrition by one of the Paleo-type groups, then do a combo-practice. It starts with food, after all, and stuff.

    Professional Education
    A licensed naturopathic physician (ND) attends a four-year, graduate-level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an MD, but also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic physician is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling (to encourage people to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health). A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician. Please see the AANMC’s Professional Competency Profile for more information.

    Additional information on naturopathic schools can be found on the American Association of Naturopathic Medical Colleges Web site.
