Corruption and Naturopathy!

here, I muse upon the essentially naturopathic and Wikipedia's definition of "Corruption":

001. Wikipedia states in "Corruption" (2014-09-04) [my comments are in unquoted bold]:

"the word corrupt when used as an adjective literally means 'utterly broken'."

I can't think of something more utterly broken than naturopathy, epistemically and ethically.


 002. some thoughts:

002.a. epistemically speaking:

when what is utterly exterior to science, like naturopathy's vitalism figmentation, supernaturalism, and activities like homeopathy

are falsely labeled as within science

when what is hugely not science and what firmly is science are equated

then corruption comes to mind.

Odd, for an area claiming to be a profession.

002.b. ethically speaking:

when naturopathy uses the label science upon its essential contents

and then hides those contents with disguising language

which even happens in the naturopaths' Oath FFS

thus violating the well-established idea of informed consent

where we are adequately given necessary information so we can then decide

then corruption comes to mind.

Odd, for an area claiming to be a profession.
