Mercy Hospital's Definition of Naturopathy: MD Diagnosis, alternative treatment.

I was very pleasantly surprised by Mercy Hospital's lovely discussion of CAM.  I like their definition of Naturopathy, which is succinct if a little inaccurate.  Generally we spend an great deal more time diagnosing than what is allowed by a fifteen minute office visit.  We also tend to try and link different body symptoms together:  chronic tension and upset stomach, insomnia and foot pain, etc. 

I've compiled a definition of Naturopathy under What in the World is a Naturopath?  It gives the scope of Naturopathy in comparison to MDs and DOs.
