Britt Marie Hermes
I am a writer, scientist, and a former naturopathic doctor. I practiced as a licensed naturopath in the United States for three years and then left the profession after realizing naturopathy is a pseudoscientific ideology. I have been working to understand and communicate how I was tricked by alternative medicine, so others do not repeat my mistake. I now write to expose issues with naturopathy, the current rising profession in alternative medicine. My work focuses on the deceptions naturopathic practitioners employ to scam patients and contrive legitimacy in political arenas. My writings can be found at Forbes, Science 2.0, KevinMD, and Science-Based Medicine. I hope my stories will protect patients from the false beliefs and bogus treatments sold by alternative medicine practitioners.
