Maryland ND Licensure Passes Both Houses: Did They Tell the Truth to Get There?

here, I cite from the Facebook page of the NYANP [see 001., below], then from the MDANP [see 002., below]; and finally I provide a link to the Governor of Maryland:

001. according to the NYANP Facebook page:
.

.
"Maryland's legislature passes [naturopathy] licensure bill."

Note: licensed falsehood marches on!


002. at MDANP you get the typical absurdity that any legislator who wasn't negligent should be able to figure out:

002.a. naturopathy's science claim, such as in "Practitioner Support Letter 2012":

"naturopathic physicians are trained in the scope of primary care physicians with a focus on disease prevention and use of science-based natural therapies to stimulate healing [...] naturopathic physicians are trained in the scope of primary care physicians with a focus on disease prevention and use of science-based natural therapies to stimulate healing."


Note: that "science-based" claim.

002.b. upon the patently not science supported, such as homeopathy.

002.c. and, of course, naturopathy's quite concealing language concerning 'the essentially naturopathic', in "Principles of Naturopathic Medicine" wherein we're told:

"[#1] respect the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): naturopathic medicine recognizes in the body an inherent healing ability, which is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic Doctors identify and remove obstacles to recovery and facilitate and augment this ability."

Note: ah, I WONDER what all that ACTUALLY means, which they have here decided WE DON'T DESERVE TO KNOW, and how that actual meaning relates to their label "science-based"?

003. it's up to the Governor of Maryland now, I guess, to approve this legislative subterfuge:

you can contact the Governor here.

Note: next up will be a look at the language of the law the Legislators, in their infinite and thorough wisdom, passed overwhelmingly.
