001. so, here is a Facebook screen capture of an NCNM post
Note: yes, right off of their stream.
002. so, what does HPN MEAN?
003. well, if you are not brain-dead [unlike the Maryland legislature], this is a definition that is simple to find:
003.a. at NCNM, we are told, in "About Naturopathic Medicine":
"the healing power of nature, vis medicatrix naturae: the body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the response of the life force."
004. and YET, at the Next Generation Science Standards we are told:
"science is replete with ideas that once seemed promising but have not withstood the test of time, such as the concept of the “ether” or the vis vitalis (the 'vital force' of life)."
Note: and yet, NCNM claims this is science. Why does my OWN government, which PROFITS from students loans towards this sectarian pseudoscience, DECEIVE ME?
