Doc by Any Other Name

Thanks for the great article in the paper; really well done! [“The Way to Wellness,” 4/29/10.] I’m very excited to share it with all my friends and family. The comments on the internet version are hysterical. I’m hoping we can correct something in the online version though. I’m not a “naturopathic doctor.” I’m a traditional naturopath and in California can actually get in a quite a bit of trouble for calling myself a naturopathic doctor, so if you guys can change that it would be better. —Kathy Gruver, MS, LMT, RM, NHC, with a doctorate in traditional naturopathy
