[Mission emphasis: I do this continuous exercise to expose the inherent fraud that naturopathy is logically, academically, commercially, legislatively / politically and clinically. Hugely misleading category labels such as "science based" and "evidence based" "nonsectarian" are being placed upon what truly is science-exterior and even more so disproven sectarian / quack nonsense! Then, the largest of betrayals toward the public occurs with highly orchestrated'.gov' endorsements of naturopaths as "licensed" and "professional." Beware, the naturopathic licensed falsehood racket marches on!]

ND Alschuler states, from the AANP's account at Vimeo.com, in "Patient Empowerment by Dr. Lise Alschuler" (2015) [vsc 2015-10-11]:
*obviously we're not privy to this secret knowledge as an embed. But the link above will get you to the video..
[tags: #NDAlschuler #falseempowerment #miseducation].
"one of the most fundamental rights that each of us has is the right to healthcare [...] access to quality healthcare [...with a provider who] employs strategies to educate us [...] that aspect of empowerment [...] its actually something that naturopathic doctors take very
seriously [...] it's not uncommon for naturopathic visits to take 30 to 60 minutes [...] and
all of that translates into better healthcare ultimately [...] that they [patients] leave feeling more empowered and better informed than when they went in";
ok. So, yes, quality healthcare as a right. And then talk of naturopaths' ability to "educate" and "empower." But, what if NDs' education is batshit crazy? For instance, this ND, a past AANP President, is a 1994 graduate of Bastyr: that ND-granting institution that is steeped in pseudoscience. How, from that knowledge based, does QUALITY and EMPOWERMENT happen? If NDs are miseducated, then the result is patient miseducation. Ah, the continuous values reversal which is naturopathy.
