Is Doug perhaps thinking of homeopathy here?

Anyway, even if not, I don't see the corpses piling up -- at least not as
high as with allopathic medicine. Could just be because the latter is more
widespread and accepted that more people die from it, but I prefer to let
the individuals decide for themselves how to deal with their health issues.
(For the record and to avoid the kind of idiotic attacks that this list is
noted for, I do NOT go to a naturopathic doctor. I just don't want to limit
other people's choices.)

(At the same time, I, of course, also think the government should not
mandate health insurance as it now does. Nor should license anyone.

Anyway, I'm glad Doug agrees on not outlawing, but how many people from this
list have actually bothered to write or email Jeb Bush on this?
