Naturopathy's Essential Vitalism Secticity - UBCNM SGA 1999, the ND Oath:

an excerpt from my UBCNM 1998-2002 archives concerning naturopathy's essential science-ejected vitalism premise -- the primary sectic belief of naturopathy's sectic belief system -- as taught and required at AANMC naturopathic colleges and university programs [see 001. below]; and a UBCNM web page that directly equates naturopathy's "life force" with naturopathy's "healing power of nature" [HPN; see 002. below]; and a Canadian ND who demonstrates, through naturopathy's official oath [see 003. below]: a) naturopathy's obligation to HPN / vitalism; b) naturopathy's false label of "science" they -- by oath -- place upon 'the naturopathic principles;' c) the wacko idea that this lie of 'naturopathy's scientific vitalism premise' is 'from a position of integrity and without prejudice, serving humanity' while the a priori, dogmatic belief called vitalism is itself a sectic nonscientific prejudice falsely postured as scientific and of the 'without prejudice' / nonsectarian:

001. the secretary of the UBCNM student government writes in "Naturopathic Student Government Meeting Minutes" {1999-08-24}:

"vitalism club [...] the vitalism club will have meetings to discuss and explore the life force which is a part of us all. Dr. Sensenig, N.D. will be advising";

Note: Sensenig was the founding dean of the college, and the founding president of the AANP.

002. UBCNM states in "Guiding Principle #1":

"the healing power of nature, vis medicatrix naturae: the body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the response of the life force. The physician's role is to facilitate and augment this process";

003. the naturopathic oath obligates one to such vitalism, per "Naturopathic Physician's Oath" hosted by CNPBC ND Seth-Smith, P. (ND ?) :

"I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art and science [yikes!!!] of naturopathic medicine [...] I will conduct my life and practice of naturopathic medicine with integrity and freedom from prejudice [!!!...] I will honor the principles of naturopathic medicine [...including] to cooperate with the healing powers of nature [life force!!!...] with my whole heart, before these witnesses, as a doctor of naturopathic medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath";
