[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!]
the vitalism [science-ejected subset naturopathy] claims of:
to Appendix B.05.i.i.00.;
to Appendix B.05.i.i.02.;
the 'science subset naturopathy' category claims of:
to Appendix I.05.d.;
the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians;
the British Columbia Naturopathic Association;
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: Great article.
What I also find amazing is that in licensed states,
naturopaths’ laws usually don’t mandate a code of
ethics or standard of practice. It’s the
Wild Wild Wild West!

Butler-Birmingham, K. (ND CCNM) tells us in "Dr.K's What is Naturopathic Medicine?" (vsc 2016-06-01):.
[tags: #claimoftreatingcause #signsconfusedwithsymptoms].
"hi, I'm Dr. Kaitlin Butler-Birmingham, naturopathic doctor [...] naturopathic medicine is pretty unique [...because] it tries to address the root cause of disease [...]";
this is the accusation that modern medicine doesn't do such.
"it looks at the physical, mental, emotional and even environmental causes of illness [...]";
as if MDs don't. Where's that spiritual, that NDs claim to have expertise in too? Hidden...Occult... (wink-wink).
"it's not just let's treat the symptom, being high blood pressure [...] the symptom, which is the high blood pressure [...]";
well, need I remind the doctor that high blood pressure is objectively measured, it is not a symptom. It can be secondary to an underlying pathology, but it is not a symptom. A symptom is experienced by the patient. Naturopathy can't seem to tell the difference between objective fact and subjective whatever.
"my focus is actually in sports medicine [...] soccer and working out [...] physical activity [...]";
doesn't sound very naturopathic to me.
