Over the past 100 years we have witnessed the birth of "science-based" medical education and practice. The focus on this model has left in its wake a number of supposedly "non-scientifically" grounded treatment modalities. Among these are the techniques integrated into the core philosophy of naturopathic medicine. This presentation will demonstrate that the core concepts of naturopathic medicine have been identified by basic scientific and clinical research over the past twenty years to be well within the purview of "scientific medicine." The conclusion of this presentation is that it is not the lack of science that has retarded the acceptance of naturopathic concepts within allopathic medicine, but rather the way that the available science has been interpreted and applied through the pathophysiological model of medicine over the past fifty years.
