Over the past few decades holistic alternative health professionals, including doctors, have seen increasing needs to shift from a natural science that was once based on tradition or also known as anecdotal evidence to a situation where decisions are based on the best available scientific treatments. In May 2011 a study was published in Australia that showed most holistic natural health professionals were not using scientific evidence and treatments in their practices.
There were 351 questionnaires sent out to alternative medicine doctors and practitioners. 126 were returned, which accounted to 36%. The majority of alternative holistic natural medicine practitioners and doctors believed scientific evidence and treatments are useful and necessary. This accounted for 93% which was 74% in natural holistic medicine practices.
Most of the practitioners (including doctors, nutritionist, and naturopaths) of alternative medicine reported participation in scientific treatments, infrequently, only a small amount of natural holistic treatments were based on scientific evidence. Majority of doctors and natural alternative medicine practitioners made serious decisions on traditions and unscientific books. Most alternative natural medicine therapist said readily available evidence, time, and lack of skills was what stopped them from using more scientific treatments.
What this study shows is that holistic natural practitioners (including nutritionist, naturopaths, and alternative medicine doctors) may be supportive of scientific treatments but proper education and training is needed of many practitioners.
