Celebrate Canada's Naturopathic Medicine Week 2014 (In an Informed Way!)

here, I itemize my gratitude for Canadian naturopathy! [wink-wink]:


Note: the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors reminded me that Naturopathic Medicine Week is coming up May 12 until May 18. Also here, in "The Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors Presents Naturopathic Medicine Week: May 12-18, 2014."

001. let's celebrate Canadian naturopathy's claims of being "science-based":
.
.
By way of CAND:



.

By way of BCNA's "The Nature of Naturopathic Medicine":
.
"naturopathic medicine is science based natural medicine."
.
Note: overall, is it NATURAL to mislabel things like homeopathy SCIENCE when SCIENCE-EJECTED?  It is for naturopathy.  It isn't for me.
.
002. let's celebrate Canadian naturopathy's essential vitalism principle:

002.a. both explicit:
.
.
By way of Ontario's NDs Slipacoff, Koch, Richards, Sachdev:
.
"the practice of naturopathic medicine emerges from six underlying principles of healing. It is these principles that distinguish the profession from other medical approaches: [#1] 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. The physician's role is to facilitate and augment this process."
.
.
002.b. and coded:
.
.
By way of CAND:
.
"the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): your naturopathic doctor works to restore and support the powerful and inherent healing ability of your body, mind and spirit [supernaturalism!  Within science?  I think not, unless you are science illiterate...] this ordered and intelligent healing ability."
.

003. let's celebrate the scientific ejection of "life force" vitalism:

as Wikipedia.org states, "'today, vitalism is one of the ideas that form the basis for many pseudoscientific health systems that claim that illnesses are caused by a disturbance or imbalance of the body's vital force. Vitalists claim to be scientific, but in fact they reject the scientific method with its basic postulates of cause and effect and of provability."

004. let's celebrate Canadian naturopathy's activities:

like homeopathy, with CAND's coded informed consent destroying vitalism.

005. let's celebrate how science-unsupported those activities are:


006. let's celebrate the fraud that Canadian naturopathy is!!!
