001. MSU's Department of Biomedical Sciences states in "Naturopathic Physician (NDs)":
"naturopathic physicians cooperate with all other branches of medical science [...and we're told that the essential] principles of naturopathic medcine [sp., medicine; include #1] the healing power of nature [HPN, and that's it about that...that] the naturopathic physician treats the 'whole person' - mind, body, and spirit [...and that NDs' schools include the] University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine [UBCNM]."
Note: nowhere on this page is the term "life force" or "vital force." There is no transparent language clearly and honestly explaining the central premise of naturopathy! So, we must therein DECODE naturopathy's essential vitalism: HPN is a code for naturopathy's essential vitalistic premise, as provided by UBCNM; while NDs' supernatural-spiritism is obvious, but here's UBCNM's anyway.
002. such vitalism is profoundly science-ejected, as well as such supernaturalism.
003. the math [something is not within a category it is essentially excluded from!]:
the essentially naturopathic is PROFOUNDLY not scientific, and putting the misleading label "science" upon the HUGELY nonscientific is quite a deceptive practice, from any institution!
