Medical Notebook: South Bay = naturopathic=20 doctor one of first licensed by state
California now licenses = naturopathic=20 doctors; shock or stress may trigger "broken heart" = syndrome, a=20 condition that mimics heart attack.
By Lee Peterson

They want to treat you in harmony with nature, and now = they can=20 also treat you in harmony with a standardized set of = requirements=20 overseen by a state agency.

California started licensing naturopathic doctors this = year after=20 a long effort by the profession to gain a formal license = procedure=20 for their practice.

3D""=20

Torrance naturopathic doctor Arlan Cage received his = state=20 license one week ago, becoming one of the first licensees = out of=20 about 200 such practitioners in the state expected to = apply.

The relatively newly minted naturopathic doctor and = former=20 engineer set up practice in old Torrance almost two years = ago, but=20 has long been following efforts in the state to formally = license the=20 profession.

Naturopathic doctors say they use nutrition, homeopathy, = herbal=20 remedies, and botanical medicine to bolster the body's = natural=20 self-healing powers.

Cage said the alternative health approach has lagged in = gaining=20 formal licensing in California -- the 13th state to licence = "N.D.'s"=20 -- because it's sometimes difficult to rally the offbeat=20 personalities that tend to go into the profession.

"Getting naturopathic doctors organized is a bit like = herding=20 cats," Cage said.

N.D.'s sought licensing because it demonstrates a level = of=20 expertise and training to the consumer. To obtain a license, = the=20 naturopathic doctor must have graduated from an accredited = college=20 of naturopathic medicine -- there are four in the country -- = and=20 must have passed a national exam.

The practice of naturopathy is not well-known among the = public,=20 said the 44-year-old Cage, who used it for himself for many = years=20 before he decided to become a naturopathic doctor. This is a = second=20 career for Cage, who had been working in the aerospace = industry,=20 including a 12-year stint at TRW in Redondo Beach.

While it may be widely accepted on the Westside, = naturopathy is=20 still regarded as fringe, perhaps, in the South Bay, Harbor = Area and=20 Long Beach area that Cage sees as his market.

Though a naturopathic doctor is not the place to go when = you have=20 a broken bone, he said its strength lies in dealing with = chronic=20 diseases, for example obesity, arthritis, and even heart=20 disease.

"Naturopathic medicine is living -- and treating the = human body=20 -- in harmony with nature," Cage said. "We have a natural = ability to=20 heal and if we didn't our species wouldn't be here."

Using various noninvasive modalities, the naturopathic = doctor=20 seeks to build up strength and the immune system. While he = uses a=20 variety of means, Cage said that nutrition is the one common = treatment for all his patients. "In naturopathic medicine, = we say,=20 'Before you do anything, heal the gut.' "

Cage said a naturopathic doctor can work as a = primary-care=20 practitioner, or in conjunction with medical doctors.

He said about half of his patients are well-versed in=20 naturopathy, having regularly visited naturopathic doctors = in the=20 past. The other half are people who don't know much about=20 naturopathy, but are not feeling good and have tried other = things --=20 "naturopathic medicine is just next on their list."

Sometimes it works out, sometimes not. Naturopathy is not = for=20 everyone, Cage said. People who come and say, 'Just give me = a pill'=20 to make them better, they are perhaps not ready for the = long-term=20 approach.

Naturopathic doctors tend to each have a different = emphasis and=20 certain types of patients who will gravitate to them. Cage = said he=20 tends to see people with serious chronic illness such as = arthritis,=20 bronchitis, heart disease and diabetes.

As of last week, about two dozen naturopathic doctors = have been=20 licensed in California.

Cage said he hopes it's the beginning of a wider = awareness and=20 acceptance of the practice of naturopathy.

Shock or stress and the 'broken heart' = syndrome

Sudden emotional shock or stress can trigger a "broken = heart," a=20 condition with symptoms that mimic a heart attack, but don't = quite=20 add up to the real thing, say researchers at Johns Hopkins=20 University School of Medicine.

News of the death of a loved one, shock from a surprise = party,=20 being robbed, and a fear of public speaking were found to be = precursors of an event formally called "stress = cardiomyopathy," a=20 reversible weakness of the heart muscle that is sometimes=20 misdiagnosed as a heart attack.

Researchers said a stressful event can trigger the = release of=20 huge amounts of stress hormones in the body, "stunning" the = heart=20 muscle and leading to shortness of breath and chest pain,=20 traditional signs of heart attack.

Broken heart syndrome seemed to be most common among = older=20 women.

Researchers hope the study will help physicians = distinguish=20 between broken heart and heart attack, and serve to reassure = patients who experienced broken heart syndrome that they = have not=20 had permanent heart damage.
