Naturopathy's #2 Principle at CAND.ca -- The Vitalism CAND Dare Not Transparently Communicate:

here, I quote from the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors' [CAND] opaque description of the #2 essential principle of naturopathy, HPN-VMN [see 001., below]; and then I provide a little transparency [see 002., below]:

001. CAND states in "Guiding Principles" [vsc 2010-03-08]:

"naturopathic doctors are guided by six principles [...] emphasized throughout a naturopathic doctor's training [...that form] the foundation of this distinct form of health care [...#2] the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae) [HPN-VMN...] the powerful and inherent healing ability of your body, mind and spirit [...an] ordered and intelligent healing ability." 
 
Note: and that's all you get.  There is NO MENTION -- in any straightforward kind of manner -- of the actual context of this #2 principle, which is that human physiology is run by a 'purposeful life spirit' aka 'vital force'.

002. upon the preponderance:

when the beast is cornered and light is shone upon it [when HPN-VMN is decoded], #2 is a sectarian vitalistic context that is thoroughly science-discarded.

Note: what kind of supposed 'profession' opaquely communicates its essential premise?
 
Not much different from Scientology getting their foot in the door with a personality test!
