Naturopathy's "Conventionally Trained Medical Professional" Claim - Fox, S. (ND NCNM):

here, I quote an ND who recently stated an ND is a "conventionally trained medical professional" [see 001., below]; and, I elucidate NDs' "philosophical grounding" in vitalism claimed as scientific when HUGELY not -- YES, that's how ABSURD naturopathy is!!! [see 002., below]:

001. naturopath Fox, S. (ND NCNM) states in "Naturopathic Physicians: Up and Coming Partners in Diabetes Care" (2009-07-24):

"although they [NDs] are conventionally trained medical professionals, naturopathic physicians are distinguished by their extensive post-graduate outpatient and clinical experience, and deep trust [faith!] in the body’s ability to heal itself [BATHI...] naturopathic medicine differs from conventional Western medicine in its deep grounding in a set of philosophical tenets [...] their philosophical grounding [...] foremost among them a profound trust [faith!] in the body's ability to heal itself [BATHI...per] the body's innate self-healing design [BISHD...] the body's self-healing mechanisms [...per] the self-healing mechanisms [SHM...NDs are] a licensed medical professional [s...] primary care physicians [...and] medical experts [...] trained in four-year accredited postgraduate medical programs [...] naturopathic physicians are well-trained [...with a goal of] empowerment of people to make beneficial choices for themselves, naturopathic physicians are often an excellent choice [...] accredited programs in naturopathic medicine are currently offered at National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR, Bastyr University near Seattle, WA, Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Phoenix, AZ, and the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, CT."

002. now, what MUST the specific context of BATHI-BISHD-SHM premise be to particularly an NCNM graduate such as Fox? Vitalism claimed a scientific when hugely not [a.k.a. ABSURDITY]:

002.a. the vitalism that dare not speak its name [coded]:

002.a1a. [as spoken at the source / alma mater, NCNM] NCNM states in "Principles of Healing":

"the practice of naturopathic medicine emerges from six principles of healing. These principles are based on the objective observation of the nature of health and disease and are examined continually in light of scientific analysis [SS]. These principles stand as the distinguishing marks of the profession: the healing power of nature -- vis medicatrix naturae [HPN-VMN]. 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 [LF...] symptoms [...] in fact [are] expressions of the life force [LF] attempting to heal itself [...we're all about] the practice of promoting health through stimulation of the vital force [VF]."

Note: vitalism [HPN-VMN, LF, VF] is claimed as able to survive SS, in fact. But, vitalism is PROFOUNDLY science-ejected, in fact. Now, NCNM is the trunk of the tree of the this sectarian movement. As NCNM recently stated in "National College of Natural Medicine":

"National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) is the oldest accredited naturopathic college in North America. Its graduates have gone on to establish all of the accredited naturopathic colleges now operating in North America [...] NCNM meets or exceeds all pertinent regulatory standards."

Bastyr NDs Burnett x2 a testament to this 'trunk of naturopathy' fact, as they employ NCNM's language in "Naturopathic Medicine":

"naturopathic medicine is distinguished by the principles which underlie and determine its practice. These principles are based upon the objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually reexamined in the light of scientific advances."

I will state this as simply as possible: engaging in commerce under the guise of legitimacy [science as a marketing label] when actually nonsensical [calling the nonscientific science] MUST violate basic strictures of commerce regulatory standards [we don't even have to go to the even higher strictures of professionalism regulation, which cannot be met until lower, easier strictures are met].

002.a.1b. vitalism at two of NCNM's other branchings, UBCNM and SCNM:

UB states explicitly in "UB Spotlight: Health Sciences Programs":

"health science programs [...] the University's professionally accredited health sciences programs [...include] the College of Naturopathic Medicine."

Note: the claim of professionalism and science per the naturopathic.

But, also at UB is "Six Guiding Principles: Guiding Principle #1" which states:

"the healing power of nature, viz 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."

Just like NCNM, the nonscientific is stated as scientific.


"the principles of naturopathic medicine are based upon objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually re-examined in the light of scientific advances [...] the degree of doctor of naturopathic medicine requires four years of graduate level study in the medical sciences [...] the major belief is in the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae)."

And SCNM states in "2004 SCNM Fall Newsletter":

"this therapy fits well with one of the basic principles of naturopathic medicine: 'the healing power of nature'. The healing power of nature or vis medicatrix naturae is based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health [IATEMARH]. 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."

Again, vitalism [IATEMARH-LF] claimed as science, but also acknowledged as belief.

00.2b. do NDs sound:

002.b1. conventionally trained?

when the profoundly science-ejected is STRANGELY labeled science, I don't think so.

002.b2. professional?

when does a professional disguise and manipulate, and when is a profession based upon the completely false?

002.b3. extensive post-graduate & medical?

how are sectarian concepts that for several decades have been science-ejected [NDs' vitalistic belief amalgam], portrayed falsely as science, of post-graduate caliber education and medical?

003. overall note:

crazy like a Fox ND? [irresistible].

Also note, NCNM, Bastyr and SCNM were part of the 'education robbers science not belief' AANP-Alliance BIG LIE that I've discussed elsewhere.
