Looks like this forum has died. What similar place to exchange memories of Dallas has arisen?

I'm all for keeping it going. I check it regularly, post occasionally. It's not dead, but is really slow lately.

O.K. I'll start. Can anyone on this site expound about the the Naturopath purge in 1953-54? I know it happened suddenly.They had clinics, I think, all up and down Ross ave. Jim

I don't remember the purge (I was pretty young at that date), but do remember my folks speaking of naturopaths, equating them with quacks of other stripes. Later in time, I do not recall naturopaths in Dallas or anywhere else in Texas or elsewhere I've lived (see exception below). They were right, of course, since anything diluted ad infinitum has been diluted until any given volume of it contains none.

Despite this, naturopaths are treated in the state of Washington where I now live as legitimate medical practitioners, and insurance is even required by law to cover their services. I doubt that that applies to Medicare, since federal rules fit there. But the matter seems bizarre to me, as the practice is akin to what we used to call "snake oil," so far as efficacy is concerned.

edit: My bad! It is homeopaths who are licensed and practice in Washington, not naturopaths. Insurance policies must cover homeopathy in Washington, not naturopathy.

But homeopathy is quackery as well, partly but not only for the reason I cited above.
