17 Fraudulent Years On!!!

here, I mention that I've updated a certain stand-alone 2007 Blogger page:

001. so:

in 2007, I'd published "10 Fraudulent Years On", entailing a lot of the naturopathy fraud I'd experienced and which I deal with on this blog as my area of expertise.  I've just republished that long-neglected page to "17 Fraudulent Years On."  Not much has changed, literally: I've updated the template, and removed the embedded Youtube slideshows that once were at the end.  And, of course, in the seven years since the first version, my case has only gotten stronger and the fraud has only gotten deeper and more coordinated!

NMD Petke Questions What's "Really", then Recommends Homeopathy, Reiki, CST, Polarity, UNDA ect. Really!

here, I cite from a recent ndnr.com article about differentiating what's real from what is not -- by way of "really" -- which then advises the use of fake remedies aka homeopathy [see 001., below]; then, I visit that naturopath's practice pages [see 002., below]:

001. NMD Petke, R. (ND SCNM) states in "Is It Really ADHD?":


"it becomes the job of the naturopathic physician to figure out what is really going on and how to effectively treat the child [...]";

really.

"natural remedies for true ADHD [...include] homeopathy [which] can be effective [...]";

so, empty pills are effective?  Fake remedies for a true disorder.

NCNM's ND Kennedy, Secretary of MANP: Homeopathy is Effective, 2014!

here, can you believe it in this here 2014, is an NCNM ND still claiming quite incorrectly that homeopathy is effective [see 001., below]; oh, that's because NCNM still claims homeopathy survives scientific scrutiny and is "powerful" [see 002., below]; yet, these claims are false [see 003., below]:

001. Kennedy, K. (ND NCNM) states in "Homeopathy a Safe, Effective Approach to Healing" (2014-09-22) [vsc 2014-09-23]:


"homeopathy is a safe and effective approach to healing [...]";

there you go.

MD Crislip at SBM: Naturopathic Oncology as Cow Pie [Mud!]

here, I reflect on some points MD Crislip made in a recent sciencebasedmedicine.org article:

001. in "Rationalizing the Ridiculous" (2014-09-014), MD Crislip writes [my comments are in unquoted bold]:

"what about using naturopaths? [...] the short answer is no [...]";

hear, hear...and there you go.  IMHO, with the profound irrationality that sits at the heart of naturopathy, I wouldn't even let one look at a blister on the sole of my foot.

"[NDs'] mostly harmless, although mostly fantasy-based, therapies [...] they are trained in unproven, often irrational, fantasy: nutritional supplements, homeopathy, acupuncture, hydrotherapy and electrical stimulation. There is no nonsensical therapy that is not in the naturopathic armamentarium [...] any and all medical magic is in their purview [...]";

agreed.  Though, as I've said many times before, the mislabeling of figmentations as science-based, and the fact that money is exchanged, is quite a harm in the legal sense of fraud of unfair business practice, and academic standards.  Plus, since NDs' core is comprised of 'coded articles of faith falsely posed as scientific fact', I think freedom of belief is quite harmed too.

"referring to naturopathy as a credible source for medical diagnosis and treatment doesn’t make it so [...]";

hear, hear.

"to quote me, if you mix cow pie with apple pie, it does not make the cow pie taste better; it makes the apple pie worse. Our patients need a better apple pie, not cow pie [...]";

agreed.  Or, as I formulated a long time ago: wine plus mud does not equal wine.  It's all mud then.
