An ND is $200,000: NUHS's Tim Says It Ain't Woo-Woo [Yet I Found Woo-Woo EASILY]

here, I quote from nuhs.edu web pages by "Tim", who tells us an ND degree is "science-based" and costs "$200,000" [see 001. and 002., below]; then, I fish out from NUHS 'that which belies' that science label [see 003., below]:

001. in "Finances" (2013-02-15)[vsc 2014-12-14], ND student as of 2013 Tim Ammons writes:

"this week, I will discuss a few financial considerations of attending naturopathic medical school, regardless of which university you choose to attend. This is a direct look at the money side of attending school [...]";

oh please, do go on!

"as nurturing and inclusive as our medicine is with regard to the health of body, mind and spirit, or the whole person [...]";

ye old supernaturalism at the heart of naturopathy.

"we are not a medicine of 'woo-woo' or one devoid of a solid scientific foundation [...] as a naturopathic medical student, each of us is expected to know the science behind the body, mind, and spirit connection [...]";

yet, ironically, the supernatural was just invoked.  So, now, MAGICALLY, the naturopathic- supernatural somehow has a scientific foundation.  Hand out the Nobels!

Changelog 2014-12-13 and ND Video

here, I summarize recent additions to my public naturopathy database.  I also link to an ND's video each changelog, quote from, and tag the video in some detail:

[Mission emphasis: I do this continuous exercise to expose the inherent fraud that naturopathy is logically, academically, commercially, legislatively / politically and clinically.  Hugely misleading category labels such as "science based" and "evidence based" "nonsectarian" are being placed upon what truly is science-exterior and even more so disproven sectarian / quack nonsense!  Then, the largest of betrayals toward the public occurs with highly orchestrated '.gov' endorsements of naturopaths as "licensed" and "professional."  Beware, the naturopathic licensed falsehood racket marches on!]

001. added:

the vitalism [science-ejected subset naturopathy] claims of:

the Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Project;

ND Kawai;
ND Kreft;

the 'science subset naturopathy' category claims of:

ND Arce;

NDs Brignall, Gignac, Reilly;

cshisc.com.au Reports Naturopathy and Homeopathy Degrees to be Done Away With

a brief snippet on a schwacking of quackademic medicine in Australia:

001. at cshisc.com.au, in "Removal of Advanced Diplomas of Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Nutritional Medicine and Western Herbal Medicine", we're told:

"the removal of the advanced diplomas of homeopathy, naturopathy, nutritional medicine and Western herbal medicine will take effect in December 2015 [...] following a unanimous recommendation from the TPAC, the CS & HISC Board has made the decision [...] with no extension [...] Rob Bonner, Chair, TPAC";

hear, hear.

Society For Science-Based Medicine vs. Maryland Naturopathy!

here, some excerpts from and my comments upon a SFSBM page, in terms of Maryland naturopathy:

001. in "SFSBM Pleased to Report that Its Report Displeases Maryland Naturopaths" [2014-12-07; my comments are in unquoted bold], we're told:


"the Science-Based Medicine blog has done a terrific job of educating the public about pseudo-medicines such as chiropractic, acupuncture and naturopathy [...] and the tools of their trades: homeopathy [...] subluxations, colonic irrigation, moxibustion, cranial sacral therapy [etc....aka] quackery";

agreed.

"this quackery and deceit [...] the tide of bamboozlement [...]";

ah, one of my most favorite words for deceiving others.

"the 'root cause' of much of the pseudo-medicine unleashed on the public is the government itself, mostly the state legislatures [...]";

yes indeed.  And trunk where those roots spring from in terms of naturopathy in the United States is the State of Oregon and its accomplicing to naturopathic fraud.
