An E-mailed Pseudoscience Offer From NUNM

here, excerpts from an email I just received from National University of Natural Medicine falsely posing naturopathy as 'grounded in science':

 001. I received from NUNM an e-mail which states:


"thank you for your interest in natural medicine!  AANMC shared that you’re considering a career in the field, so I’m excited to share with you the ways our Doctor of Naturopathic (ND) Medicine program at National University of Natural Medicine will prepare you for a career of healing others.  Our ND program, grounded in biomedical science [...] NDs combine time-honored practices with cutting-edge advances to bolster the body’s natural mechanisms to heal itself [...] I encourage you to reach out or plan a visit so we can discuss how a degree from NUNM can propel you to a career in patient-centered medicine.  I look forward to speaking with you!  Kind regards, Danielle Law Associate Director of Admissions [...]";

so that's a claim that naturopathy is "grounded in biomedical science" and "patient-centered medicine".  Yet, NUNM has the page "Naturopathic Principles of Healing" which states:"these principles stand as the distinguishing marks of the profession: [#1] the healing power of nature, vis medicatrix naturae.  The body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the response of the life force. The physician’s role is to facilitate and augment this process." Well, that's the science-ejected goal of naturopathy's activities.  And also there's NUNM's homeopathy in their ND. So this is truly abject pseudoscience-fraudulence.
