001. first, there's a California Department of Consumer Affairs 3-hour-long YouTube video "Naturopathic Medicine Committee Meeting - May 15, 2017" [saved 2017-06-18]:
[I haven't watched this but I have read its agenda].
002. there's a DCA page that has NMC agenda's posted and this meeting's specific agenda as the PDF "Naturopathic Medicine Committee Notice of Teleconference Meeting
May 15, 2017";
003. and it all looks awfully boring and bureaucratic except for this point I'd like to make:
naturopathy is inherently a pseudoscience;
yet, DCA promotes naturopathy's false 'science subset nonscience' marketing labels and national exam substandards;
while DCA has a mandate of consumer protection.
004. there's a collective NMC member web page which lists an ND Weisswasser:
004.a. who, on his practice's bio. page, along with his ND wife, states:
"Dr. Greg [...] went on to earn his naturopathic doctorate from Bastyr University, a leading educational institution in the Natural Health Sciences [...] Dr. Carolyn Weisswasser [...] went on to earn her doctorate degree at Bastyr University, considered by many to be the leading institution in science-based natural medicine [...]";
so, there's a categorical science claim.
004.b. who collectively state on their practice page "About Naturopathic Medicine":
"naturopathic doctors are skilled in diagnosis and treatment of disease utilizing natural therapeutics including clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, and hydrotherapy [...]";
so, how does something so science-exterior as homeopathy get falsely grouped into "science-based" and "sciences"? Because naturopathy's idea of science is so lax, aka pseudoscience. The irony of a member of a consumer protection State entity who does not have high consumer protection standards!
