001. BU states in "Academic Degree Programs: Principles of Naturopathic Medicine" [vsc 2010-08-06]:
"[#1] the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): naturopathic medicine recognizes the body's inherent ability, which is ordered and intelligent, to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to recovery, and to facilitate and augment this healing ability."
Note: nowhere on this page is their the term "life force", "vital force" or "vitalistic". There is supernaturalism, though [which is science-exterior]: "[#5] total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual path."
002. even now, I say wow. Wow. What they aren't telling us about! Their mother-ship school, so to speak, NCNM, is useful to decode what Bastyr has coded. This is how naturopathy gets the hook set: opaque language and falsely labeling that coded stuff which is science-exterior as science. So, uninformed consent and falsehood.
