Naturopathic Student Debt: Starts with Institutionalized Falsehood and Doesn't End

here, I point out the false labels naturopathic North American educational entities and overseers use including schools, schools' consortia, ND organizations, States, the Federal government, and accreditation bodies [see 001., below]; then, I remind any such future educational consumers that student loan debt is hugely nondischargeable / for life [002., below]:

001. institutionalized falsehood / a "branch of medical science" that is, at its heart, of claims and methods that are patently science-exterior:

Note: what I will point out here is the claim that naturopathy is "science based" or a "branch of medical science" or "of the same science foundation", and then show that that very-same area has, at its heart, quite a science-ejected or non-science-employing core.  And one thing to note too: this is SO EASY TO DO.

001.a. schools:

I have, for years, collected and archived many of the 'science subset naturopathy' claims of the North American schools.   On this web page (here), see section I.01.a2. through I.01.a8.

001.b. schools' consortia:

on that same page, see section I.01.a1.

001.c. ND organizations, States, Federal:

on that same page, see section I.02. and I.03.

001.d. accreditation bodies:

I'll just list the accreditors for the 5 U.S. schools:

in Connecticut for UBCNM, this is UB's page listing their overseers;
in Illinois, for NUHS, this is their list;
in Arizona, this is SCNM's list;
in Oregon, this is NCNM's list;
in Washington State, this is Bastyr's list.

Note: what a RICO-type apparatus.  You have more consumer rights on a used car lot, though a naturopathy education is like a quarter of a million dollars in cost if you include the prerequisites.

002. student loans are for life according to the United States Federal Government Department of Education [perhaps in essence just a branch of the banking industry], in "Forgiveness, Cancellation, and Discharge":

"you must repay your loans even if you don’t complete your education, can’t find a job related to your program of study, or are unhappy with the education you paid for with your loan.  However, certain circumstances might lead to your loans being forgiven, canceled, or discharged."

Note: "certain circumstances" my ass.  The conditions look quite favorable for banks never to have their loans discharged.  But, I notice, there is one category missing in the title of this .gov site: prosecution.  I have written in the past to the ed.gov requesting they pursue prosecution of the naturopathy apparatus.  This is highly unlikely, as they'd have to prosecute themselves.

and you will be quite wrong, in sum, claiming professionalism subset science subset naturopathy subset nonscience.
