“Remaining true to our naturopathic roots (radicle) keeps us person-centered and able to care for any dis-eased patient with confidence. Assimilating ourselves into the current dominant medical paradigm does not change the paradigm. Conventional medicine is responsible for hundreds of thousands of patient deaths each year… Why is this important? As I see it, the naturopathic profession is slipping toward ‘integration’… And while this shift might be seen as a potentially beneficial political move, I am concerned that the philosophy and belief system of our ‘whole’ will be lost.” -Dr. Christie Fleetwood ND, RPh
