    I'm not clear from the article - is this naturopaths who trained in naturopathy or GPs who've developed an interest in naturopathic medicine?

    I think a lot of trained GPs turn to frameworks like naturopathy and functional/integrative medicine because they are frustrated with the impotence of medicine in a lot of areas, and that frustration somehow becomes merged with their more general views about what constitues a wholesome lifestyle and environment (hence the emphasis on trace minerals).

    The other framework that GPs turn to is the biopsychosocial framework, and I think for the same reasons. They feel impotent and so they turn to psychology to give their profession meaning, and genuinely believe they can treat real complaints by listening to the patient.
