Not at all. In reality it is best to have at least 2 or more professionals on your health team. As a naturopathic physician I often collaborate with medical doctors in the best interest of my client. Having been trained and worked as an RN in my first career for 25 years, I know the advantages of western modern medicine. I also know and practice as a whole body healer now, and enjoy seeing my clients reach an even higher level of health.
