The 'Nonscience Labeled Science' of ND Monette

here, I cite from the web pages of Connecticut's ND Monette, who labels naturopathy "science" [see 001., below]; while detailing the nonscience basis of its therapies [see  002., below]:

001. Monette, A. (ND SCNM) states in "Naturopathic Medicine" [vsc 2011-03-20]:

"naturopathic physicians are educated and trained at accredited naturopathic medical schools in the art and science of natural healthcare [...] all NDs graduating from nationally accredited naturopathic medical programs have fulfilled the following criteria [...] two-step licensing exams administered nationally by NABNE: basic science exams in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and microbiology."

Note: science, science, science.  That same exam labels homeopathy "clinical science."

002. ND Monette states:


"naturopaths are trained in this ancient form of medicine, which includes diagnosis and acupuncture [...] the basis of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the concept of qi flowing along invisible meridians in the body. Qi is the energy within that controls our organ functions and helps to prevent illness."

Note: vitalism / the science-ejected.

002.b. in "Services > Homeopathy" [vsc 2011-03-20]:

"based on the principle that like cures like, homeopathic medicines are diluted thousands of times in order to create a compound that, when matched to the symptoms of the patient, can stimulate the body to heal itself.  This form of medicine has been used for centuries in order to stimulate the body to increase its vital force."

Note: vitalism / the science-ejected.
