[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!]

and one of my comments was:
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: Homeopathy
is not a science. Check the science. I think a
retraction is in order regarding labeling
homeopathy as science. I'd ask the same
if you'd labeled astrology a science. -r.c."
Pennsylvania Legislature" (2016-10-30),
and one of my comments was:
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: Having
personally attended one of these 'approved'
schools that the Penn. legislature finds so
'qualifying', for four years, having left in
disgust at what naturopathy is all about,
and now writing and podcasting deeply and
broadly about 'the essentially naturopathic',
here's my advice: stay away from them. They
essentially are an 'unethical sectarian
pseudoscience.' Any especially NEW law
should first and foremost communicate that
on any Penn. ND's landing page. Instead
what you get with a new ND law is licensed
falsehood. Wherein these creeps will
get to self-regulate. -r.c."

Bastyr University tells us in "What Is Naturopathic Medicine?" (2016-10-10)[vsc 2016-11-04]:
[tags: #codedvitalism #efficacyclaim #supernaturalism].
"what is naturopathic medicine? [...] it's integrative, preventative, and personalized medicine that puts both health and care back into healthcare [...] a holistic approach to healthcare that treats the mind, body and spirit [...] it has been show to effectively treat some of the most common medical conditions [...such as] allergies, chronic pain, depresison and anxiety, diabetes, digestive issues, fertility problems, fibromyalgia, heart disease, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, skin conditions, sleep disorders [...] by integrating traditional healing methods with modern medical science [...] and following six principles [...including #3] utilize the healing power of nature [...aka] naturopathic medicine encourages the body's self-healing processes [...] naturopathic doctors must pass a national standardized licensing exam after at least four years of medical school [...] where they are trained to employ a range of evidence-based techniques and modalities [homeopathy is not listed...see] bastyr.edu [...and we're shown BU's seal which says] vis medicatrix naturae [...]";
so, CODED vitalism because we don't deserve to know the truth, even though it's in the school's seal in Latin. And isn't it interesting that they decided NOT to list homeopathy though it is taught there as "science-based". And the supernaturalism! Plus, that accusation that modern medicine doesn't "care" and isn't concerned with "health." So much opacity and falsehood.
