The key thing here is "knowledge", to treat a child you need the proper diagnosis and after that you need to do 'best practice'.
It does not matter if it is naturopathic or modern medicine, a treatment only needs to work.
And in any case, parents are free to choose how to treat their child, we can only hope for responsible parents. And no, it is not the job of the government to choose for the parents.
As a natural healer myself this naturopathic treatment they used seems silly and misguided, they did use foods that are natural healthy but natural food is not natural medicine when there is a clear sign of sickness, natural healing food should be eaten by all but it is mostly to prevent sickness. As natural medicines i would recommend herbal (and plant) remedies and oils, they can be used for a lot of general sicknesses. A healthy child would not get meningitis (ofcourse), if a child does have it, it depends on the veracity if 'any' natural remedy can help.. but i would recommend to go to a GP maintream. After the mainstream treatment a parent could choose to als do natural food/medicine that is proven to boost healing.
