What is a Naturopath, and what does one actually do? How does a "Traditional" Naturopath differ in philosophy and scope of practice from other types of so called "alternative" practitioners? What can I expect to gain by seeking out and consulting with a practitioner like Shauna? Are my health freedoms and choices in the United States and beyond really under attack? These are just a few of the questions and answers that are addressed by Shauna K. Young, a Certified Traditional Naturopath (CTN) with a PhD in Natural Sciences, in this unconventional and revealing look at a medical art and health option that is being exponentially embraced by the public, and is therefore under increasing scrutiny and literal attack from a number of forces within the government and other medical communities. With the way that the healthcare (or rather "sick-care") industry functions in this country and elsewhere today, books and other sources of information addressing these issues are vitally important. Even though these works are certainly not fun and sometimes even a trial to read, they are necessary for gathering the kind of information not being readily or voluntarily disseminated by the Allopathic medical and pharmaceutical powers-that-be. This is NOT one of those books.... Just from the lighthearted title alone, it should be easy for the potential reader to anticipate that this is not going to be a "hard" study, or that taking on this book will prove to be one of those tasks you feel you probably should do, but don't really want to do. Rather than shrink from the label of "Quack" that is so often attributed to anyone who dares to challenge conventional thought or tread outside the confines of the dogmatic and exclusionary medical paradigm, this book embraces it - taking it more as a compliment in being recognized as freshly different from the stagnant norm. While there is undoubtedly a lot of extremely useful and easy to understand healthcare and wellness information in this book, that education is probably not the primary impression the reader will be left with. No, instead this book is purposely conversational in tone to be easily understood. It is presented as more of a memoir and cautionary tale than a medical lecture. This book is like no other - Part informational, part personal memoir, part plea for people to wake up and take charge of and protect their own health freedoms, this book shines always with humor, love, intelligence and passion. It will definitely make you laugh, and maybe cry, but mostly it will make you think. After reading this, hopefully there will be many more people out there who will believe and assert that their own health shouldn't be up to anyone else, and that they should always defend personal options and choice when it comes to their own bodies. Rather than "live and learn," this book instead encourages people to "learn and live"
