001. from the YouTube account HLI Alberta, which is the Health Law Institute at the University of Alberta, there's the recent video "Seeking Asthma and Allergy Treatment From a Naturopath: A Wise Decision?" (2016-12-20) wherein we're told:
"she might have come to a doctor like me to discuss safe and proven treatment options [...but] just last week Anne's friend Jason said that he went to see a naturopath [...] Anne went to see the naturopath [...who] prescribed some homeopathic remedies [...] the naturopath used scientifically unsupported testing methods to diagnose several food sensitivities that likely don't exist [...] and homeopathy, the most common treatment advertised by naturopath is literally water, it is the most scientifically treatment in all of alternative medicine [...] if you find yourself split, know what's science and what's bunk [...]";
ouch!!! Tue that. Bravo.
002. and what's fascinating is that:
002a. the naturopath regulatory board of Alberta, the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta, on their page "Council Members", the CNDA list themselves as;
"President: Dr. Beverly Huang; Vice-President/Registrar: Dr. Stephanie Yaremko; Treasurer: Dr. Joe Klassen; Member-At-Large: Dr. Michael Mason-Wood; Member-At-Large: Dr. Christine Perkins; Member-At-Large: Dr. Christopher Schlee; Public Member: Maryanne Doherty; Public Member: Ralph Westwood."
002.b. what they don't indicate is that they're ALL NDs. So NDs get to self-regulate. And as I often say, "why would nonsense have a problem with itself?"
Huang is a CCNM ND graduate; Yaremko is a CCNM ND graduate; Klassen is a Bastyr ND graduate; Mason-Wood is a CCNM ND graduate; Perkins is a CCNM ND graduate; Schlee is a CCNM ND graduate.
002. currently, at bastyrcenter.org, Bastyr University tells us in "How Naturopathic Medicine Can Help You":
"naturopathic medicine emphasizes [...] encouraging the body’s inherent healing ability [...] while firmly science-based, modern naturopathic medicine also preserves the century-old wisdom of successful natural therapies [...including] homeopathic remedies [...]";
so, when is the junk falsely termed science? Naturopathy.
