The authors comment on a paper by Hans A. Baer et al on naturopathy and critical medical anthropology (CMA). They illustrate the similarities and differences between worldviews of naturopathic medicine (NM) and CMA in their perspectives on health. They discuss how NM has shaped naturopathic practice and place. They also explore the structural barriers that limit the expansion of NM and other complementary alternative medicine (CAM) disciplines.
