ND Cutler Says You Are Toxic! So Use a Rife Machine. That's Balderdash!

here, I briefly quote from an ND who claims we are very so very TOXIC [see 001., below]; then, I visit his practice [see 002., below]; and, the pages of his alma mater SCNM [see 003., below]:

001. the "Fitness News Desk" of broadwayworld.com writes in "Cutler Integrative Medicine Offers Tips for Living a Healthier Life" [2014-10-01, saved 2014-10-02, archived here 2014; my comments are in unquoted bold]:


"leading Detroit health and wellness center, Cutler Integrative Medicine [...]";

so, "integrative."

"according to Dr. Cutler, women should start each day with meditation, prayer and breathing exercises [...] other health and fitness tips include: drink half your weight in ounces of filtered water (not tap water) daily, start exercising [...] find acts of service for others on a weekly basis. Selfless acts feeds and increases a person's spiritual health [...]"; 

ah, the ND as lifestyle and religious guru.  The anti- tap water police!  The spiritual adviser.

"'you are more likely to meet your health goals when you are accountable to a well-qualified ND [...] we live in a very toxic world so it is never a question if you are toxic, but how toxic?' says Dr. Cutler [...] meet with a licensed naturopathic physician in your area to holistically address and correct any health complains or conditions [...] as the only doctor in Michigan to specialize in 'extensive' detoxification and depuration therapies [...] individuals interested in Dr. Cutler's advanced treatments can consult with a detox specialist by calling 248-663-0165 [...these] environmental toxins [...]";

the scare them with a false claim of universal TOXICITY!  I call a constructed false problem [toxicity] that then the constructor conveniently can solve [detoxification]...racketeering.  Ah, holistic integrative NONSENSE.


"Dr. Cutler's philosophy and expertise, as a licensed naturopathic physician, is in discovering the root cause of illness while not only treating the symptoms [...]";

so, if toxins are posed as such a problem but they are not, isn't this a FALSE statement about what an ND can do?  And there's that implied 'regular medicine doesn't treat the actual issue.'

"Doug Cutler, ND received his doctorate of naturopathic medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine [...] visit http://www.cutlerintegrativemedicine.com [...]";

let's go there.

002. ND Cutler's practice pages [here's his bio.]:

002.a. science-ejected vitalism:

002.a1. explicit:


in "Colon Hydrotherapy" [archived here 2014], we're told:

"what are the benefits in using a TDP Mineral Lamp? [...] restores qi (energy-life force) [...]";

so, ye old life force or qi.


in "Acupuncture in Michigan" [archived here 2014], we're told:

"acupuncture is based on the belief that everything in the body is interconnected, and that a vital energy force called ‘qi’ (pronounced ‘chi’) runs through the body via twelve invisible channels called meridians. Illness and disease result when the flow of qi becomes blocked or imbalanced. Acupuncture corrects the flow of qi by stimulating the appropriate meridians, each of which is linked with a different organ system [...]";

so, ye old vital energy force or qi.

002.a2. coded:


"naturopathic medicine in Michigan is a distinctively natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the wisdom of the natural healing process. By emphasizing the treatment of disease through the stimulation, enhancement, and support of the inherent healing capacity of the patient, naturopathic medicine achieves a deeper level of healing [...] naturopathic medicine is based on the following principles [...] 2. the healing power of nature: the human body possesses the inherent ability to restore health. The physician’s role is to facilitate this process [...] Dr. Cutler gets to the root by identifying the underlying cause of your condition, and uses treatments that stimulate the natural healing mechanisms of the body [...]";

so, hugely coded vitalism.  This is typical for naturopathy.  Claimed as the source of illness, the so much more IMPORTANT source of illness.


"naturopathic medicine is a distinctively natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the wisdom of the natural healing process. By emphasizing the treatment of disease through the stimulation, enhancement, and support of the inherent healing capacity of the patient, naturopathic medicine achieves a deeper level of healing [...] naturopathic medicine is based on the following principles [...#2] the healing power of nature, vis medicatrix naturae: the human body possesses the inherent ability to restore health. The physician’s role is to facilitate this process  [...] symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body’s natural attempt to heal."

and more of the same coding.  Because we don't deserve to be told the truth.


"the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix nature[a]) - trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself [...] symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body’s natural attempt to heal [...]"; 

again, coded vitalism.

002.b. yet, though based on the science-ejected, there's the science claim of naturopathy:



"to obtain a naturopathic medical credential (ND) that qualifies the recipient to sit for licensing examination, students must have the following [...] prerequisites including three years of pre-medical sciences at a University with a cumulative grade point average (3.00) on a four-point scale. Prerequisite courses: biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, English, psychology and humanities [...] pass the NPLEX (Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations) board exams that are written after the 2nd year (Part I – Biomedical Science Examination) and 4th year (Part II – Clinical Science Examinations) of study [...]";

so, there's the "science subset naturopathy" claim.  As if.

002.c. whackaloon diagnostics and therapeutics:


"applied kinesiology is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and emotional aspects of health through manual muscle testing [...] homoeopathy is based on the principle of similia similibus curentur ('like cures like') and utilizes infinitesimal and diluted doses of extracts derived from nature, including plant and mineral compounds. These doses of homeopathic remedies are selected based on an individual’s 'specific symptoms' and can have positive effects on both a physical and emotional level  [...] Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique has been used to eliminate sensitivities and allergic reactions to common foods, chemicals, plants, animal dander and other substances. NAET is based on the theory that sensitivities and allergies are a result of 'energy blockages' in the body caused by contact with the offending substances. NAET releases the blockages and reprograms the body so it learns not to be hyper-reactive [...] TrueRife Technology is based on the 'mortal oscillatory rate' (MOR) of living organisms. TrueRife Technology locks in on the MOR and increases the intensity of frequency that resonates naturally with these microbes. The increased resonant frequencies cause the harmful bacteria, viruses, fungus and parasites to disintegrate from structural stresses, while leaving the human cells completely unharmed [...]";

so this is the holistic, the crazy science exterior falsely labeled clinical science: AK, homeopathy, NAET, Rife nonsense.  Wikipedia states "Rife's work and claims were ultimately discredited by the medical community."

003. and let's go to SCNM too, to the source:

at SCNM [that's the archived 2013 page], you can get the science claim upon the patently science-exterior as well by way of "SCNM is a school of medicine and health sciences grounded in naturopathic principles."

of course, because that's where this ND was taught.  The apple, the tree, the not falling far!!!

004. the bogey man of toxicity, a quack's marketing pal:

there is the critical and thorough "The Detox Myth: What Your Alternative Health Provider Isn't Telling You" at Science-Based Pharmacy, which concludes:

"any product or service with the words 'detox' or 'cleanse' in the name is only truly effective at cleansing your wallet of cash. Alternative medicine’s ideas of detoxification and cleansing have no basis in reality. There’s no published evidence to suggest that detox treatments, kits or rituals have any effect on our body’s ability to eliminate waste products effectively. They do have the ability to harm however – not only direct effects, like coffee enemas and purgatives, but the broader distraction away from the reality of how the body actually works and what we need to do to keep it health."

hear, hear.
