A Growing Debate Over Whether Naturopaths Should Treat Children After Death of Toddler in Canada

Trial is still underway for the Canadian couple accused of allowing their toddler son to die of meningitis after they treated him with herbs instead of taking him to the hospital. David and Collet Stephan have pleaded not guilty, but the case is sparking a larger debate over whether naturopathic doctors should be permitted to treat children at all.

There were 2 reasons someone I know chose their pediatrician, and it was based on negative Yelp reviews:

  1. The pediatrician would not see any parents who had guns in the home.
  2. The pediatrician refused to serve parents who refused to vaccinate.

Sounded like a good criteria to me.
