CT ND Gilfoy: Idealism is Not Science [ISYN]

here, some claimed science expertise by a Connecticut ND:

001. at courant.com, as reported by Christine Aschwanden and Joseph A. O'Brien Jr.,
in "Stone Age Eating: Good Ideas, Shaky Logic Behind The Paleo Diet" we're told:

"Stephanie Gilfoy, a naturopathic doctor in Madison [...who speaks of certain claims being of] idealism, rather than science."

ah, a naturopath DISTINGUISHING.  That's interesting: distinguishing idealism from science, WHILE the whole idea of "natural medicine" aka naturopathy is based on idealism, but falsely termed "science-based."  So I call hypocrisy here.  Naturopaths will invoke "science" when it suits them, but when you point out what they DO isn't science, and what they CLAIM isn't science, they all of a sudden create either a fake science permissiveness or lie.

002. the practice of ND Gilfoy:

002.a. her bio. page:

About Dr. Stephanie Gilfoy Licensed Naturopathic Physician” tells us she's a UBCNM graduate.  That's a school that claims science subset naturopathy, categorically.  Falsely.  How far has the apple fallen?

002.b. her page "Naturopathic Services" states she uses, amongst other things:

"IgG food sensitivity testing: IgG food testing is used to identify delayed sensitivity reactions. These reactions create generalized inflammation that may present as a wide variety of symptoms, but the reaction actually occurs in the body 2-3 days after the food is ingested. By recognizing which foods the body is reacting to with a simple finger prick, the patient can eliminate these foods, thus helping to create a more optimal environment for the body to heal."
