President of NHAND on New Hampshire's HB 351 (2011-02-21)

here, I cite from a recent letter by the President of the New Hampshire Association of Naturopathic Doctors to the Concord Monitor [see 001., below]:

001. in "Bill Removes Obstacle For N.H. Patients" [saved 2011-02-26][my comments are in bold]:

"Jaclyn M. Chasse [ND Bastyr...] president of the New Hampshire Association of Naturopathic Doctors [...states in answer to Lorna Landry's] 'This Health Mandate Fails the Science-Geek Test' [...]";

"HB 351, an act providing insurance parity for licensed naturopathic doctors [...it will] decrease health care costs, improve access to primary care and support a free market [...]";

How does imaginary medicine like homeopathy treating imaginary figmentations like a vital force save money?  Primary whackaloon care access.  I'm not sure how happy all other people paying into the pot will be so a few can treat themselves with unicorn tears and magic beans.

"NDs attend four-year clinically-based medical schools [...it's] rigorous training [...they're] prescribing science-based diet and lifestyle changes and prescribing both evidence-based natural and pharmaceutical medicines [...] the most effective multidisciplinary medical care possible [...]";

Quite a science claim and efficacy claim.  How is falsely labeling the hugely science-exterior rigorous, science- and evidence-based?  Most effectively nuts.

"opposition to this bill is often rooted in lack of knowledge regarding the training NDs obtain and the care they provide [...]";

Oh, how much I know about naturopathy!  I know things like: what it is based on, essentially, is a bunch of science-exterior sectarian figmentations and habits.  So much is not being said by the president of the NHAND.  Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky.

Overall note:

It's NDs' explanations that are soooooo lacking and unwilling to let the public make an informed decision.

I find ND Chasse's own biography page interesting at NHAND. We're told naturopathy is "natural health science."  At NHAND's page "About Naturopathic Health" we're told NOTHING TRANSPARENT about the underlying science-ejected vitalism that their principle "healing power of nature" signifies:

"naturopathic doctors are guided by six principles [...#2] the healing power of nature [...] this set of principles, emphasized throughout a naturopathic doctor’s training, outlines the philosophy guiding the naturopathic approach to health and healing and forms the foundation of this distinct health care practice."

Their basis is the coded science ejected, and part of their spiel is to label it falsely as scientific and evidence based.

Lies of omission; you are being manipulated.  It is their M.O.
