This is the end.
I have decided to STOP.
Someone perhaps will take up the mantle.
Licensed falsehood will continue.
I've complained to all supposed oversight bodies without response.
I'm tired of being an audience to myself.
Looking to jet out of the U.S., start life anew without a crazy fraudulent USDE student loan mortgage over me [science subset naturopathy 'my arse']:
(guerrilla-skeptical-musings upon the 'science subset nonscience' absurd meme known as naturopathy / naturopathic medicine / natural medicine aka 'the naturoPATHillogical')
Friday, August 26, 2011
here, it cite from an ND's explanation of the basis of naturopathy, vitalism and an equation of such with imaginary / mythical figmentation!!! [ISYN]:
001. Clemons, J. (ND NCNM) states [my comments are in bold]:
001.a. in "What is a Luck Dragon?" [vsc 2011-08-26]:
"naturopathic medicine is founded on the idea of a healing force of nature [HFN] or vis which resides within every living thing. In Chinese medicine this could be compared to qi [with] the focus of Chinese medicine being the cultivation, preservation and restoration of the smooth flow of qi [...]";
so, it's HFN = vis = qi as the defining context of 'the naturopathic'.
"this healing force [HF...is like] a mythical creature, a Luck Dragon, which can’t be seen or touched, yet promotes our growth, healing and regeneration [...]";
so, it's HF = figmentation / the mythical!!! And that's accurate, scientifically speaking, because there is no healing force. There's healing, but we know those mechanisms very well and they are anything but IMAGINARY and MYTHICAL! Welcome back to the middle ages and all its superstitions, folks.
"this force [F...] this vis [is] working to protect our body and enable our healing defenses [...] our own Luck Dragon! Within each of us is an individual life force [LF...]";
so, it's F = vis = Luck Dragon = LF.
"preservation of this vis requires careful, conscious medicine that works to support the Luck Dragon, rather than suppressing the protective life force of the body. Luck Dragon Medicine is the medicine that works to cultivate the life force within the body. Naturopathic medicine is a medicine that works to preserve and support the Luck Dragon to prevent dis-ease and promote lasting health [...]";
yes, go on...and talk to me more about the little gnomes in your garden that make it grow...aka the dragons in your body that make it heal.
"through naturopathic medicine patient and practitioner work to support the vis, to encourage the unique, individual Luck Dragon in each of us. The naturopathic practitioner works to educate and to empower the patient to understand how they can work to support their own Luck Dragon. If we look at it this way, Naturopathic medicine could then can be seen as teaching the care and feeding of your Luck Dragon."
so, the essence of naturopathy is a weird, evidenceless, mythical figmentation centerpiece! Well, I fee educated and empowered now...now knowing how WACKO naturopathy is in its thinking!!!
001.b. in "What Is Acupuncture?" [vsc 2011-08-26]:
"the focus in acupuncture is to restore healthy movement of energy or qi [...so that it is not] obstructed or impeded. Treatment is focused on removing blockages, expelling pathogens, and restoring the flow of qi or vital force, thereby supporting the body’s inherent ability to heal itself [...]";
again, healing by vitalistic figmentation: energy = qi = vital force. Of course, energy is a scientific term for something actual and physical and not a figmentation.
"the Chinese medicine practitioner [...] use[s] techniques [...] to affect or improve qi flow in the body."
002. overall note:
if you go to the alma mater of this ND, you will be told quite incorrectly that such 'mythic figmentation' -- shall we call it -- survives rigorous scientific scrutiny as objective fact...because that's the naturopathy racket, falsely posing junk thought as quality knowledge and scaring people into thinking they need to fix something THAT DOESN'T EVEN EXIST with naturopathy the means to do that.
is it wise to put your health in the hands of a practitioner whose basis is imaginary and who is committed to falsely representing the imaginary as scientific fact? Who conflates medically irrelevant dragons and superstitious forces with that which is real, medical, and scientifically supported?

UB's Knowledge-Type Claim: Science Subset Health Subset Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Chiropractic [jpg]
so, I've a new digital camera and this is the first picture taken with it [from the streets of Bridgeport, CT; the racket continues!!!!]:
and though UB has been paring back the live versions of these well-established and thoroughly-archived web pages (see http://www1bpt.bridgeport.edu/ub/nm/Six_Prihtm.htm , http://www1bpt.bridgeport.edu/ub/nm/Six_Prithree.htm ), it is still a 'live fact' that naturopathy [and kind!] is NOT SCIENCE at all but based ESSENTIALLY on the science-ejected vitalistic and supernatural [and kind!].

NMD Kracoff Claims You Are Toxic (Though Scientifically Speaking This is B.S. aka Strap in for a Woo-ful Pharmacy-Based Racket)
here, I cite from a recent article that warns us all of our organ-debilitating toxicity, and coincidentally the authors sell from their own pharmacy solutions to this fake toxicity problem [see 001., below]:
001. "Dr. Gary Kracoff NMD" and Steve Bernardi write in the Milford Daily News's "Over the Counter: Consider a Cleanse" (2011-08-23)[vsc 2011-08-23]:
"the body cleanse is an important aspect of the well lifestyle [...for] wellness [...] the build-up of toxins must be dissolved in order to help the body function properly [...they] can create harm and weaken the performance of key organs [...these] toxins [...] remain in the digestive system and need to be removed through the cleansing process [....aka] a detox [...which] can assist in weight loss, a healthy sleeping pattern and can also improve arthritis by decreasing aches and pain [really!...] toxins are in the air we breathe as well as food and water [...and no matter] there is still a need to detoxify [$$$$$$...] we recommend to those visiting our store to do a cleanse twice a year [$$$$$$...you can do a] colonic irrigation [...to] cleanse the colon [...or] herbal teas [...or a] fast [...] we recommend an all-in-one approach, such as the Whole Body Integrative Cleaning System [ka-ching ka-ching $$$$$ (something like this)...which is] a super milk thistle supplement [...] fiber [...] and a laxative [...you should also buy from them] a daily probiotic [...] ancient faiths [...] involve a purification or cleansing ritual [...] cleansing of the inside of the body is much the same [...to] become pure again, as when we were born [...] Steve Bernardi is a compounding pharmacist and Dr. Gary Kracoff is a registered pharmacist and a naturopathic doctor at Johnson Compounding and Wellness Center in Waltham (www.naturalcompounder.com) [$$$$$$$]. Readers with questions about natural or homeopathic medicine, compounded medications or health in general can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-893-3870."
Note: now, this toxins myth has been super-analyzed by scientific skeptics as BUNK, and in my view, engaging in commerce wherein fake problems are posed to people and supposed solutions to such fake problems are sold...is racketeering. Shame on these two for scaring, literally, the shit out of people. What other specific junk is here: colonic irrigation which recently was hugely criticized medically as non-beneficial and risky, homeopathy which we know is nothing but an empty remedy which doesn't even warrant further scientific investigation though NMD Kracoff promotes it, health / medical practices equated with religion [which has nothing to do with medical science and factual reality, essentially -- aka these toxins are as much an article of faith / figmentation and as health promoting as a baptism ritual or a belief in a Tooth Fairy].

Vitalism: Naturopathy's Falsely Labeled Science-Ejected Context Currently, According to THE FOUNDER (NDNR 2011-08)
here, I quote from the current NDNR which talks about naturopathy's contextual hub / central premise / requisite obligation [see 001., below]:
001. in "Early NDs Understood the Power of Mother Nature" (NDNR 2011-08, pp. 027-028), Czeranko, S. (ND CCNM 1994) [vsc 2011-08-12] states:
"Lust [the founder of naturopathy] states poignantly 'naturopathy is a philosophy founded upon the simple theorum that vital-force is in all living matter which gives expression in health and disease' (1923, p. 136) [...and we're also told this] 'nature cure [aka naturopathy...] is the art and science of supplying Nature [coded vitalism] with the conditions necessary to a cure and is constructive (1923, p. 186)'."
Note: so there you go, science claimed upon nonscience ['mother nature' aka 'vital force' aka 'nature' -- vitalism, in sum] -- naturopathy's MO to this day but seen even almost 100 years ago. In my view, NDNR stands for 'not a doctor, not rational'. Meanwhile, though based on the science-ejected vitalistic, this ND's alma mater falsely labels naturopathy with such claims as "a rigorous scientific foundation" and "science- based" (for my collection of such claims from this naturopathy school, click here). Yet, simultaneously, CCNM claims vitalism as the basis of naturopathy (click here). So, TO THIS DAY and throughout the last say 100 years, naturopathy has FALSELY claimed that the hugely vitalistic / science-ejected is indeed science while profoundly science-ejected. But don't worry, it's here to stay as they've written such irrationality / absurdity into .gov statutes such as in Oregon, the trunk of the naturopathy tree [which serves as a Rosetta Stone of sorts for interpretation of all other state's ND / NMD usually incomplete 'naturopathy principles' iterations].

"The Run", Naturopathic, Homeopathic - A Search Surrounding a Publicity Stunt and an Absurd "Natural" Pseudotherapeutic
here, I do a Google.com web search with the parameters "naturopathic "the run" homeopathic" [without the outside quotes] and report on the results [see 001., below]:
001. the top three first-page hits include:
001.a. the naturopathic practice page of Krudowski, J. (NMD SCNM) who specializes in homeopathy and asks on her home page that "The Run" be supported and on her page "FAQs" [vsc 2011-08-07] states:
"naturopaths experience the same four years of basic bio-medical science training as that of allopathic practice [...] homeopathy is a science."
Note: that's rich. But homeopathy is truly science-demolished. So when is something the same when it is not: naturopathyland.
001.b. the naturopathy proponentry / endorsement page of the American Medical Student Association "Naturopathic Medicine" [vsc 2011-08-07] which states:
"naturopathic physicians (NDs) attend 4 year full-time residential medical schools and are primary care providers trained in conventional medical sciences [...and] homeopathy [...one school being] National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL [...] all licensed NDs must complete four years of graduate medical education at a school accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) and pass a two-step board examination (similar to USMLE Steps 1 and 2) [called the NPLEX]."
Note: so, I think the obvious claim here is science subset naturopathy subset homeopathy, which is QUITE FALSE. The NPLEX exam mentioned is claimed to be "science" in title on both parts, with the second part including homeopathy -- nonsense on stilts wearing a tuxedo.
001.c. the practice page of Godby, D. (NMD NCNM 2004) and Caban, P. (N NCNM 2005):
NMD Godby is one of the runners for "The Run", which is explained as "moving natural medicine forward."
Note: if you go to the alma mater of these two naturopaths, the school itself clearly states in their 2010-2011 catalog the science-ejected premises that naturopathy is based on WHILE falsely labeling the whole thing objective scientific fact. Forward, these days, is not the progressive advancement of knowledge, apparently, that it used to be. Science has already moved forward, and in the dust, on the trash-heap of the discarded sectarian and whackaloon, lies homeopathy. And naturopathy, in falsely labeling what is HUGELY science-ejected as science -- in a stubborn, absurd, pig-headed manner common to sectarian systems of pseudomedicine -- is actually quite regressive.
this is science by publicity stunt, truly, and nonsense on stilts wearing a tuxedo....running....away from scientific consensus and into its own private Idaho of pseudotherapeutic absurdity.
