001. Ontario's Hunt, A. (ND CCNM) states in "Naturopathic Doctor, Angela Hunt" (2016) [vsc 2016-03-26]:
[tags: #NDHunt #naturopathyscienceclaim].
"Dr. Angela Hunt, N.D., naturopathic doctor [...] combining natural therapies with medical science [...] are there any misconceptions about naturopathic medicine? A big misunderstanding with naturopathic medicine is that it is not scientific based, which is completely inaccurate. Every clinical decision I'm making [...] I'm researching that I'm using science to help me make better decisions [...] so just because I'm not using pharmaceuticals doesn't mean I'm not using science";
it is not "completely" inaccurate to state that naturopathy's homeopathy, for starters, is science-ejected. So, this idea of naturopathy categorically being science is false. The ND's own words, "combining" BELIES this categorical science label. On her practice page, she lauds homeopathy as "incredibly gentle and effective". And there she writes: "Dr. Angela Hunt BSc., Naturopathic Doctor." But that doesn't magically make homeopathy or naturopathy science. In fact, the undergraduate science standards that make science science demarcate naturopathy and homeopathy as pseudoscience.
