Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit Invited Speaker Series 2018/19
**CHANGE OF DATE AND VENUE**
In North America, naturopathic doctors (NDs) are actively lobbying for state licensure and broad scopes of practice that would allow them to practice like medical doctors, despite not having completed legitimate medical training. NDs argue that regulating their field ensures public safety. In reality, licensed naturopathic doctors are far more dangerous than their unlicensed counterparts. Join former naturopathic doctor Britt Hermes for a terrifying presentation about the ways NDs are experimenting on patients, often with their blood, and getting away with it. Prepare to be horrified!
Britt Hermes is a writer, scientist, and a former naturopathic doctor. She practiced as a licensed naturopath in the United States for three years and then left the profession after realizing naturopathy is a pseudoscientific ideology. Since this time, Britt has been working to understand and communicate how she was tricked by alternative medicine, so others do not repeat her mistake. She now writes to expose issues with naturopathy, the current rising profession in alternative medicine. Her work focuses on the deceptions naturopathic practitioners employ to scam patients and contrive legitimacy in political arenas. Britt’s writings can be found at Forbes, Science 2.0, KevinMD, and Science-Based Medicine. She hopes her stories will protect patients from the false beliefs and bogus treatments sold by alternative medicine practitioners.
