[Mission emphasis: I do this continuous exercise to expose the inherent fraud that naturopathy is logically, academically, commercially, legislatively / politically 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!]

ND Barlow writes in "The Healing Power of Nature" [vsc 2013-10-11](2013-10-01) :
"the fourth principle of naturopathic medicine is the utilization of the 'healing power of nature'. Don’t worry, this is not some 'woo woo' concept where we believe that nature magically cures everything [...]";
really? Hmmmm, a never-measured and scientifically-discarded idea of life force disguised as HPN...sound's like magical thinking to continue the deception of using naturalistic language to disguise this sectarian vitalistic-spiritistic science-ejected idea.
"'the healing power of nature' refers to the innate healing ability that exists in our organs, tissues, and cells [...] this innate healing ability [x2...] the body’s healing mechanisms [...] the body’s innate healing responses [...] the body’s innate healing mechanisms [...]";
oh, what I would give for some TRANSPARENCY! I guess we don't deserve it in this article. He does have some qi at his clinical web site, though, here.
002. video link and commentary:
but, her other web site, puremednaturopathic.com, tells us "naturopathic doctors [...] cooperate and refer to other branches of medical science."
that's odd because she explains on an even other web address that acupuncture and TCM are based on "qi", which is a science-ejected concept.
ah yes, the science marketing label, the actual nonscience underneath. And you have to love how in Canada every ND lists their "BSc", which is another science marketing veneer.
