Montana Naturopath Warns Us About Misleading Labels - Really.

here, I cite from a recent article by Montana ND and MANP Secretary Kennedy about labels that are deceptive [see 001., below]; then, I go to the State of Montana's naturopathy regulatory language which FALSELY labels homeopathy a "science" as naturopathy ITSELF usually does on their LICENSURE exam [see 002., below]:

001. ND Kennedy of Montana's "Great Falls Holistic Health Clinic", who is listed as the current Secretary of the Montana Association of Naturopathic Physicians and who apparently is an NCNM graduate as she is listed at that school, writes in "Supplement Labels Can be Misleading" (2015-02-25) [my comments are in unquoted bold]:

 "if you are like most Americans, you take nutritional supplements to help you stay healthy [...]";

false premise: MOST people, if they eat well, DON'T NEED supplements.  This is a settled matter.

 "supplement labels can be misleading. If you buy products over the counter from large national chain stores, you may want to re-evaluate that strategy [...] these fraudulent products [...] most naturopathic doctors carry lines of supplements in their offices [...] the products that they carry have met all standards of safety and efficacy [...]";

naturopaths, of course, sell in competition with these national chain outlets and can average a third to half their monthly income on their dispensary.  As so let's talk about mislabeling of "products" at the "core" naturopathic level by way of a ".gov" accomplice to naturopathic epistemic fraud.


Note: MANP tells us their State of Montana regulatory board is the "Alternative Healthcare Board", here, so let's go there.
002. and though so WARNED by the ND, it turns out NATUROPATHY labels themselves are misleading.  Take for instance, mt.gov's "Alternative Healthcare Board", which tells is:


002.a. in "Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Amendment" (2014 archived):

"the board determined it is reasonably necessary to amend this rule in response to changes made to the Naturopathic Physician Licensing Examination (NPLEX) by the North American Board of Naturopathic Examiners (NABNE). The five individual basic science NPLEX examinations presently in use are being converted to a single integrated examination called the Part I - Biomedical Science Examination. The eight individual clinical science NPLEX examinations formerly in use have been converted to a single integrated examination called the Part II - Core Clinical Science Examination. The rule amendment clarifies that the compensatory scoring model for the eight individual clinical science examinations will still be accepted so long as all examinations were taken prior to the availability of the single integrated Part II - Core Clinical Science Examination. Formerly, the homeopathy examination was a separate add-on examination required for licensure in Montana but homeopathy is now incorporated into the integrated Part II - Core Clinical Science Examination [...]";

so, there you have it in a nutshell: naturopathy's science subset nonscience mislabeling.  Because a homeopathic pill is an empty pill.  So, do you see the FAKE efficacy standards and FRAUD at the "core" naturopathic level?  It is SO OBVIOUS.
