001. ND Koda writes, in "Association Spotlight: A New York Bill for the Naturopathic Medicine Profession" [NDNR 2014-09, not yet on line]:
"this year the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians (NYANP) added a new definition of naturopathic medicine to be included in an amended version of the licensing bill in New York State [...]"
and this completely fascinates me, in terms of deceptive or incomplete language, this 'selective defining'.I went thoroughly through this bill language in the Naturocrit Podcast Episode 004.
"defining the profession [...] it became apparent that we needed to find wording that clearly distinguishes the practice of naturopathic medicine from other professions [...]";
ah, yes, and the 'of the professions' claim, which is also in the title of the article. In not clearly stating naturopathy is based upon sectarian science-ejected claims falsely labeled as science based which is quite unprofessional, nothing IMHO has been clearly distinguished.
