Britt Marie Hermes was a naturopathic physician in the US for three years before becoming disillusioned with the profession. Realizing that Naturopathy was primarily an ideology based system rather than science based one, Britt made the difficult decision to leave her career. Hoping to help educate others as to the “inner workings” of Naturopathy, Britt started a blog called Naturopathic Diaries (www.naturopathicdiaries.com).
