There are two kinds of Naturopaths. Good ones and the kind you have. I have run across the kind you have before. They live crippled in fear from prosecution from mainstream medicine so they become ineffective. Your naturopath obviously wants to fall in line with the domineering illness industry (mainstream medicine). If I were you I'd be on the hunt for a real naturopath, one who has done the cleanse herself/himself and knows the benefits firsthand.
These articles that you have read about where people require emergency surgery, could you point me to them please. Sounds like something that the dubious Quackwatch team would fabricate to scare people away from doing proven effective flushes. They are the fear casters for modern medicine but once you begin getting positive results from natural proven methods, you will see through their ploy. Gallbladder surgery is huge business and therefore must be protected at all costs as far as those who profit from it are concerned.
The other thing I key into, is your fear. Where does it stem from? This will become an important aspect of your healing.
I would also suggest you post your concerns to Andreas Moritz .
It'll be interesting to see what he has to say.
