[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!]

"naturopathy medicine is pretty unique [...] because it tries to address the root cause of disease [...]";
so there's the dog-whistle accusation that modern medicine doesn't, in negligent.
"how does it do this? It looks at the physical, mental, emotional and even environmental causes of illness [...]";
as if regular medicine doesn't do this. Notice that she conveniently leaves out their supernaturalism.
"high blood pressure [...] the symptom, which is the high blood pressure [...] it's not just let's treat the symptom being high blood pressure [...]";
hypertension is not a symptom, its measured objectively so it's a sign. In fact, it's so NOT a symptom that it's often called 'the silent killer' because the patient DOESN'T feel it. When there are causes of hypertension, it's still not a symptom.
