"EBM as the selection of therapies according to the evidence presented in the scientific literature [...] Quadrant II scientific literature [...] because I am a naturopathic doctor (ND) and not a medical doctor (MD) I have been called anti-science.  Let me be clear, I am NOT anti-science.  I value and use science, but I also do not revere science.  For me it is one of four quadrants of evidence, not the only quadrant.  Science is incredibly valuable.  At its best it helps us to uncover mechanisms of action so we can more deeply understand how diseases and medicines work, and how to better use our medicines.  It also helps us strip superstition and bias out of tradition and our own personal experiences.  But science is also a human endeavor and not something passed on down from ‘on high’.  Recent expos’s have shown the bad side of science, manipulated for monetary gain: some scientific studies are ghost written by marketing people looking to influence the prescribing habits of doctors, some pharmaceutical companies hold back scientific data that would make their drug look worse, and that studies are manipulated from the very beginning to give the results that are being looked for. Scientific studies are not gospel, and in my opinion, need to be taken in the context of other quadrants of information.  So to them we add [...] a doctor’s experience working with their therapies, seeing what works and what doesn’t on real people in front of them, gives personal knowledge of that therapy that cannot be learned from tradition or the scientific literature [...] medicine is not just a science, it is also an art.  Hunches, gut feelings and intuitive leaps of thought play a vital part in the practice of medicine, even for the staunchest scientific practitioners.  Sometimes we choose therapies because it simply feels right [...] the strongest evidence is where each quadrant converges with the others, where a traditional use is verified by modern scientific studies, the clinical experience of the doctor and their peers, and by the practitioners and patients non-logical intuition.  This I believe is truly comprehensive, holistic EBM and best serves patients";

"'even scientists, from time to time, won’t let the facts get in the way of a good story.'  Most of us in modern societies look to science (at least in part) to help us understand what is right.  Science after all is the modern human endeavor to understand the truth of our world.  Unfortunately, the practice of science rarely lives up to the ideals of science (to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, no matter where it leads) [...] I would like to believe that the scientists involved in the study are smart enough to be able to interpret their own data correctly, which means that they chose to deliberately report false conclusions.  It is likely they did this, because they realized that in order to continue their funding (ie – keep their jobs) they needed to report 'acceptable' conclusions.  Since everyone knows that saturated fatty acids are dangerous, scientists who consistently report that they are in fact safe and healthy, tend to lose their funding and their positions.  This is NOT scienceScience should not tell us what we want to hear, that isn’t its job, it should tell us, to the best of our ability, what the truth is. Unfortunately studies like this cheapen and distort the body of scientific knowledge.  Most people, whether they are your average lay person, or your media person [...] doctors, and even many scientists, don’t have or take the time to review every study in depth and rely on the abstract to be truthful.  Studies like this impair our ability to use evidence based medicine effectively.  When scientific studies lie, we all lose";

[in "Types of Natural Medicine Practitioners" (2017)]

"there are generally three types of practitioners of natural medicine you will find out there, and they fall on different places on the spectrum from modern scientific knowledge to traditional knowledge [...#1] those who only use therapies that have scientific studies – There practitioners will only use natural medicines that have been ‘proven’ by modern science [...#2] those who only use modern interpretations of traditional knowledge [...] often because of a lack of conventional medical training these practitioners don’t know how to read scientific studies, and they are often untrained in biochemistry, physiology, etc. These practitioners will most often be lay (unlicensed) practitioners such as herbalists, energy workers, ‘traditional naturopaths’, etc., and will use medicines based on energetic or non-modern scientific indications. I believe these practitioners are drawing on a valuable reservoir of knowledge in traditional medicine, but again are leaving out valuable modern scientific knowledge [...#3] those who combine scientific and traditional knowledge – doing this well is a very difficult job, kind of like mixing oil and water together. Both are valuable, both provide useful information and insight, neither is the best choice for every situation. Modern scientific knowledge often needs to be placed in the context of traditional knowledge. Put another way, we have learned a lot (modern scientific knowledge) but lost our wisdom (traditional knowledge). Traditional knowledge often needs to be evaluated in light of what modern science has taught us. Tradition knowledge contains a lot of insight gained over the course of thousands of years, but it also contains a lot of superstition that modern scientific knowledge can help us purge. ‘Throw out the bathwater, but keep the baby.’ There is no particular type of practitioner who is best at this, as it requires a tremendous amount of education, though I am biased and think ND’s are probably all around best at this [...] one quick litmus test: when you see a practitioner look at their bookshelf. If they don’t have one, be very, very suspicious.  If you ONLY see texts on biochemistry, anatomy, prescription drugs, or other ‘science-y’ looking books, etc. then you are probably looking at a type 1 [...] if you DON’T see ‘science-y’ books and only see books on traditional herbalism, energy medicine and the like, then you are probably looking at a type 2 [...] if you see a combination of ‘science-y’ books and books on herbalism and other traditional therapies, then you are probably looking at a type 3. Also be sure to ask them about their approach. Do they use scientific studies? Are they familiar with traditional natural medicine? Make sure that their style matches what you are looking for in a practitioner";

In simple terms, elements of RCT design features random allocation of treatment recipients versus those who do not receive treatment (control group). There are many advantages to this design, but there are also many limitations. One such limitation is that often only one ‘treatment’, ‘intervention’ or ‘substance’ is studied.
