Yes. Naturopathic medicine has its own unique body of knowledge, evolved and refined for centuries. It also incorporates scientific advances from medical disciplines throughout the world. Many of the individual therapies of naturopathic medical practice have been scientifically validated, especially in the areas of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, immunology and hydrotherapy. The trend is that those naturopathic methods which are tested are validated. More detailed information is available from the AANP. The research departments of naturopathic medical colleges also conduct ongoing research, exploring experimental models appropriate to the eclectic and individualized approach of naturopathic practice. They have also produced state-of-the-art double-blind and placebo-controlled studies, published in peer-reviewed scientific journals";

Physically, these remedies are just sugar pellets, which have undergone so many dilutions of a plant, animal, or mineral substance that it no longer physically exists in the sugar pellets. Remedies, however, work through principles of quantum physics. The explanation is complicated but to put it simply, physical particles and energetic wavelengths are interchangeable at the atomic and subatomic level, known as the 'wave-particle duality' in science";

In high school I oriented my studies toward the raw objective sciences of physics and mathematics but soon realized the human dimension (except the thinking mind) is completely ignored in these sciences. Through discussions with one of my best friends who was studying experiential life sciences of biology, histology, physiology and through the influences of the Baha'i writings which had attracted my curiosity greatly in my teenage years and which places the science of the healing arts as the 'the noblest of all sciences' [...] I became fascinated with the marvels of scientific medicine [...] in its theory, I was enthralled; scientific medicine is a profound system of knowledge and diagnostic power [...] it soon became clear to me that my intellect alone and all the scientific teachings available could not bring me to a full understanding of what the human being requires to heal and be healed from. This encouraged me to delve deeper into a rigorous and 'scientific' understanding of the complexity of the mind-body-spirit connection and, as the Spirit component of this connection is completely ignored in the scientific world [...] my soul came to a deeper understanding of the true nature of the human being, of the union between intellect and spirit, between science and soul [...] 'we are here to practice scientific medicine, and our scientific research shows Zantac is superior to placebo therefore it is the treatment of choice' [...] isn’t this more logical and therefore more scientific? [...] something was terribly wrong with our reductionism and scientific medical system [...] the whole being in front of us is sacrificed at the cost of rigorously applying a scientific approach [...] sadly, it appeared that if something was not a drug, or has any 'natural' label attached to it, then it is not scientific";
