[Mission emphasis: I do this continuous exercise to expose the inherent fraud that naturopathy is logically, academically, commercially, legislatively and clinically. Hugely misleading category labels such as "science based" and "evidence based" "nonsectarian" are being placed upon what truly is science-exterior and even more so disproven sectarian / quack nonsense! Then, the largest of betrayals toward the public occurs with highly orchestrated '.gov' endorsements of naturopaths as "licensed" and "professional." Beware, the naturopathic licensed falsehood racket marches on!]

the 'naturopathy is not science, is pseudoscience and / or quackery' claims of:
[specifically, naturopathy's homeopathy is not science]
by way of the UK's Telegraph article
"Prince Andrew Risks the Wrath of Prince Charles on Homeopathy" (2013-08-11):
"at Cambridge University’s Center for Science and Policy conference
in London earlier this year [...] Sir Mark Walport, the
chief scientific adviser to the Government, and an implacable
opponent of alternative medicine [...] said: 'my view
scientifically is absolutely clear:
homeopathy is nonsense, it is non–science.
My advice to ministers is clear: that
there is no science in homeopathy.
The most it can have is a placebo effect'";
002. Luther, M.A. (ND Bastyr 2012), a rather freshly minted naturopath, states:
002.a. in her video "Homeopathy and Naturopathy" [vsc 2013-08-14]:
"I want to explain the difference between a naturopath and a homeopath [...] I'm a naturopathic doctor [...who studied at] Bastyr University [...] naturopaths use a specific philosophy of medicine [...] we use many different modalities [...including] homeopathy [...] my physical medicine specialty is craniosacral therapy [which is a nonsense therapy!...comparing homeo. to naturo.] we both have our own philosophies [...] and there is a lot of overlap in the philosophies [...including] stimulating the body into self-healing [coded vitalism alert!...] if you have any questions don't hesitate to give me a call."
Note: so, not much specifically mentioned about vitalism, vital forces and such which is the essentially naturopathic. Do you feel manipulated yet? Because I don't see transparency here regarding 'what naturopathy is'. I see the typical CODING of what naturopathy truly is about. Let's scratch beneath the surface and go to her web pages! Oh, the questions I have, beginning with 'how dare you'!
#occultvitalism #craniosacraltherapy #homeopathy #Bastyr.
002.b. her web pages:
002.b1. naturopathy's vitalism is quite evident in "Find Relief: An Everyday Guide to Naturopathic Medicine" [vsc 2013-08-14]:
"naturopathic medicine considers each person to have a 'vital force.' The vital force is what gives life to the body. The vital force is how each of us will respond to stressors and illness in life. The vital force is a measurement of vitality one contains [...] when our vitality is strong as a result for example, from eating well, making positive lifestyle choices like exercise, fresh air and stress reduction, we are able to better bounce back from an illness or stress. Thus, when we need our vital force to respond, it does. Our vital force is affected by many factors, including genetics, daily dietary and lifestyle habits, past medical history, our ability to process and express emotions and thoughts, and how rich our life is filled with enjoyment for what we are doing. The naturopathic doctor will use therapies that support the vital force to respond in a way that moves the body toward healing and good health [...] the homeopathic remedies are then administered based on the patient’s whole symptom picture. The remedy stimulates the patient’s vital force to start the healing process. Remember, our vital force is the part of us that is not seen but felt. Please refer to the 'The Philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine' section for a discussion of the vital force [...] 'naturopathic physicians (NDs) take a holistic approach to healing, and aim to cure disease by taking advantage of the body's self-regenerative powers and harnessing the restorative power of nature [...] naturopathic physicians work to identify and eliminate the cause of disease, and are guided by six basic principles [...#2] utilize the healing power of nature [...] Principles the Naturopathic Doctor Lives By [...include #2] the healing power of nature. This principle provides the foundation for naturopathic medicine. The body is self-healing and always wants to move toward health [...] naturopathic doctors support the body’s own healing mechanisms."
Note: that's a lot of vital force, so I don't think it was accidentally typed. That is the common philosophy, as they call it, that is shared by naturopathy and homeopathy. That concept is, of course, a belief and therein I'd more accurately call it 'naturopathy's central article of faith'. And such vitalism is quite science ejected if you know your biology.
002.b2. yet ND Luther uses the broad label of science upon naturopathy [as a footer in most if not all of her many web pages] in "Frequently Asked Questions" [vsc 2013-08-14]:
"NDs are trained [...] the training includes education with classes in the following medical sciences [etc....] students must sit for 2 board examinations including a basic science and a clinical exam for licensure [...] naturopathic medicine is a scientifically-based practice of medicine."
Note: ah, and there you have it, the naturopathillogical. Science subset nonscience. Licensed and accredited falsehood marches on.
