Naturopathic Medicine Week 2011: CAND Absurdity Marches On

here, I cite from a Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors [CAND] press release for Naturopathic Medicine Week 2011 [NMW; see 001., below]:

001. CAND states:

001.a. in "Naturopathic Medicine Week" [vsc 2011-05-07]:

"free events [will be] held across Canada May 9-15. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) will be hanging up their lab coats during Naturopathic Medicine Week to teach members of the community about natural medicine, health promotion and disease prevention. During the week of May 9-15, 2011, NDs across Canada will be conducting free events [...] click on a province below for event listings."

Note: CAND is famous, in my mind, for labeling naturopathy "science based" in two separate Youtube videos that have been up for a few years here and here on their Youtube channel.

001.b. in the 2011 Youtube video "What is a Qualified Naturopathic Doctor and How can I Locate One?" [vsc 2011-05-07]:

"I'm doctor Mubina Jiwa [(ND CCNM) bio. here and here] and I'm a qualified naturopathic doctor practicing in Toronto [...] a qualified naturopathic doctor [...has studied at ND school] medical and clinical sciences similar to that of medical doctors [...and are licensed through their] naturopathic physicians' licensing examinations or NPLEX [...in order to practice] naturopathic medicine."

Note: what's so interesting about that NPLEX is that it labels homeopathy "clinical science", which it is NOT.

you can also find naturopathy's science-ejected vitalism -- as "vital force" and "chi" -- and supernaturalism -- as "spirit" and "spiritual" -- that defines CAND naturopathy here. Also notice there that they list the ND program at National University of Health Sciences and that is a gross misrepresentation of the naturopathic, overall: naturopathy is primarily NOT SCIENCE or science-based.

NDs are qualified by way of irrationality and absurdity, and the absurdity known as naturopathy marches on.
