As I was reading the first part of this article, I thought -- Maybe this forum should have a "WTF?" section... for stuff like this.

Legit naturopaths deserve a place in health care
BY JULIE DEARDORFF
Chicago Tribune


(KRT) - As a critical-care specialist, Marcy Zwelling-Aamont is incredulous that naturopaths, of all people, have been appointed to the Medicare Coverage Advisory Committee. What's next, federally funded witchcraft?

Naturopaths, or natural healers, believe that tar-coated tampons, rather than antibiotics, can treat pelvic inflammatory disease, Zwelling-Aamont charged during a recent American Medical Association policy meeting in Chicago. Naturopaths, she went on, make a mockery of "evidence-based science."

Zwelling-Aamont, representing the California Medical Society delegation, urged her colleagues to support their resolution to boot the two naturopathic practitioners off the 100-member committee, which recommends what medical services should be covered by Medicare.

"Where did science go?" she implored. "Where did professionalism go? I'm insulted I have to even ask they be removed."

THE American Government has acknowledged that participants in a US-funded health training programme in Haiti may have taken part in voodoo ceremonies, after allegations that the US is funding "witchcraft" in the Caribbean island.
