New 2015-10 AANMC Recruitment Videos...And My Incidental Musings.

here, new 2015-10 marketing / recruitment video links from the North American naturopathy schools' consortia YouTube account [my thoughts are in unquoted bold; the people are either NDs or soon-to-be NDs]:

001.a. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Venessa Madrigal":

.

.
"the spiritual / emotional components that often aren't addressed in the conventional medical model [...] I'll be graduating later this year [...]";

I always find it interesting how the supernatural is conflated with the emotional in certain belief system.  I think conventional medicine has PSYCHOLOGY, which does deal with the emotional.  But, it is RELIGION that is best suited to deal with the spiritual.  In what way are naturopaths competently trained to interface regarding matters of faith?  Instead, they term matters of faith to be science-based, which is quite harmful IMHO to freedom of belief.

001.b. there's "Change the World and Your Life - Your Naturopathic Medicine Career Awaits":
.

.
"[that's ND Guiltinin, BTW] we are going to change the world [...and] holistic patient centered care [...] if your values are about creating health [...] naturopathic medicine is a fantastic career to consider [...] it's the foundation of people reaching their dreams [...] its about caring for humanity, helping humanity reach its full potential [...]";

lots of idealism.

001.c. there's "A Journey Into Naturopathic Medicine - Ushta Aryan":
.

.
"for me naturopathic medicine is a holistic way of approaching patients [...] that is science-based [...] the real solution to your healthcare crisis [...]";

so, science-based holistic.  As in science-based supernatural.  Bogosity.  Is the solution to the healthcare crisis conflation of science and the supernatural?

001.d. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Molly Langteau":
.

.
"it was in high school where I first came across the healing power of nature [...] the healing power of the body [...] what really entails natural medicine [...] different philosophy of medicine [...] NCNM [...] the philosophy really struck me [...] the foundation of what naturopathic medicine is about [...is] the basis of my care for patients and especially with children [...]";

HPN is of course coded vitalism, which is the foundation or basis of naturopathy, which is science-ejected.

001.e. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Michelle Niesley":
.

.
"[an ND at CTCA] so I went to a student-for-a-day session [...at NCNM] it just seemed to get at the core of the problem.  It wasn't putting a band-aid on the issue.  It was actually solving the issue for the patient [...] take the risk [...] the kind of provider you'd want to be [...]";

ah, that claim that 'we do it right, they don't'. do you want to be a provider who tells a cancer patient that homeopathy is science-based as naturopathy schools teach?  Do you REALLY want to be that kind of person?

001.f. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Maurice Werness":
.

.
"the reason I chose to become a naturopathic doctor is because it lines up with who I am [...] the world really needs what we do [...] I'm very curious about life.  I'm very curious about what makes us tick as human beings [...] to me the most sane thing I could do as a human being was to bring this medicine to other human beings [...] to me its totally common sense how this medicine works [...] you throw enough toxins at the body, the body's going to say 'hey we got issues here' [...] the gift of this medicine and bringing sanity back to healthcare [...] it's very much needed by the world [...] go deep inside [...] the way I look at naturopathic medicine: it's the foundation of people reaching their dreams [...] if I don't have the energy and intellect and so forth to reach after what I'm after [...] we haven't scratched the surface of what's possible for us as human beings [...] the cool thing about naturopathic medicine, you can package it anyway you want [...] at the end of the day, it's about caring for humanity [...]";

I appreciate this man's emotional involvement. But I don't see how 'science subset nonscience' is a boon for the world's troubles.  I of course thing 'science subset homeopathy and supernaturalism' is batshit crazy, with is what you find out 'in the depths of naturopathy' as compared to science.

001.g. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Matthew Hicks":
.

.
"well, I'm a bit of an idealist [...] the six principles and the different healing methods [...] it's very comparable to a conventional medical program [...] so being prepared for the rigors of medical school is very important [...]";

ah, those principles, which say their contents survive scientific scrutiny and which contain science-ejected and science-exterior activities and ideas.  From the get-go, not rigorous thought.

001.h. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Marisa Soski":
.

.
"the six principles and the paradigm of naturopathic physicians [...] you will not regret it [...]";

ditto.

001.i. there's "A Journey into Naturopathic Medicine - Marcy Feibelman":
.

.
"the philosophy [...] go for it [...] this is a really great field of medicine and we're going to really change the world";

what is so great about batshit crazy?
