001. MD Polevoy, "founder, www.quackerywatch.com", writes in "Skeptical on Naturopathy"(2014-04-15) [my comments are in unquoted bold]:
"[a recent] Citizen article contained not one word of skepticism about the nature of naturopathy [...]";
because, to follow the line of though regarding 'natural', it MUST be good. Therefore, give it a free pass when it comes to a counterargument!
"naturopathy is largely based on pseudoscientific claims, providing a clinical diagnosis by using unproved diagnostic instruments or tests [and wacko treatments!...] the public needs to be protected from unscientific practices and dangers advanced by naturopaths [...]";
hear, hear. Instead, what's happening is the opposite: states like Maryland recently partnering with naturopathy in licensing its falsehood.
