Changelog 2015-03-02 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 University of Bridgeport;

the 'science subset naturopathy' category claims of:

the State of Iowa;

the 'scientific rejection of vitalism':

the College of DuPage;

Connecticut ND Skowron of NCNM on NBC: NDs Have "The Best Education" (Huh? But what about...)

here, a Connecticut NBC video featuring ND Skowron, a 'naturopath pediatrician', who uses the word "best" to describe ND education [see 001., below]; then, I visit the ND's alma mater, NCNM, which is QUITE NOT BEST in terms of academic claims, IMHO [see 002., below]:

001. on NBC Connecticut's "Prescription Rights for NDs in Connecticut" (2015-02-27) [vsc 2015-02-28], ND Skowron states [my comments are in unquoted bold]:


"[the host] help Dr. Skowron out and we'll see what we can do here in Connecticut [...]";

this is BLATANT advocacy.  Journalism: extinct?

The Naturocrit Podcast - Episode 008b - Script & Annotations

here, I provide an annotated script for the Naturocrit Podcast's Episode 008 Part 2, titled "The 2015 Iowa NPA Naturopathy Bill", wherein I compare 'naturopathy's preponderance' to the language of INPA's 2015 draft naturopathy licensure law:

001. the Episode 008b script and annotations:

Standard Introduction:

Welcome to, as that robot voice says, The Naturocrit Podcast, and thank you for boldly listening.

What ARE we even talking about?

Well, this podcast series is my take on naturopathic medicine, an area I've been studying for about twenty years, including my time in so-called 'scientific nonsectarian naturopathic medical school'.

My approach is a pairing of scientific skepticism and a deep knowledge of naturopathy's intimate details.

In previous episodes of this series, I established that naturopathy is, essentially, a kind of knowledge blending, misrepresentation, and irrationality.

The Naturocrit Podcast - Episode 008b Mp3 Link

in this Naturocrit Podcast Episode 008, titled "The 2015 Iowa NPA Naturopathy Bill", I compare 'naturopathy's preponderance' to the language of the Iowa Naturopathic Physicians Association (INPA) 2015 draft naturopathy licensure law.  In this Part 2, I further build that preponderance and compare such to the language of INPA's 2015 draft naturopathy licensure law:
