The AANP 'Stands Up' For 'Homeopathy is Efficacious' This 2017 - Vimeo Video

here, and isn't it amazing, I link to an American Association of Naturopathic Physicians video defending the pseudopharmacy known as homeopathy, which is integral to naturopathy, and without scientific merit:

001. at vimeo.com, the AANP account recently uploaded the video "Homeopathy_ Standing Up Under Scrutiny" [saved 2017-07-06] and here's the embed, sort of because the account set the upload to 'have to go there', and the title's link will get you there too:
.

"[we get the AANP's logo and we're told this is part of] the State Alliance Webinar from the AANP [...and the narrator tells us the program is] all about homeopathy [...and on comes] Mike Jawer [...] AANP Government Affairs Director [...who says] 'you know, homeopathy benefits thousands of patients of NDs [...] in recent years questions have arisen [...] over how homeopathy works [...]";

well, homeopathy, through the lens of science, doesn't work and is implausible aka can't work.  You don't need a mechanism besides placebo effect and regression to the mean and other confounds.

"[Jawer goes on] so, what can we say about the clinical value of homeopathy, its scientific basis, and what's happening in the regulatory arena [...in terms of] FDA [...and] FTC [...]";

again, homeopathy HAS NO SCIENTIFIC basis.  And has been studied enough to say it's over, it has no value.  And the FTC has given homeopathy the JUSTICE it deserves.

 "[we're told the speakers are] Lisa Amerine, ND: President, Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians [...who will] speak to the clinical value of homeopathy [...] Iris Bell, MD PhD [...] Standard Homeopathic / Hylands' Inc. [...who will address] the science and efficacy of homeopathy [...] Mark Land [...of] Boiron USA [...who will talk about] homeopathic pharmacists [...]";

so, an ND and two homeopathic remedy manufacturers.  How COZY!!!  "Homeopathic pharmacists" is like 'vegetarian carnivores' and 'the science of homeopathy'.

"[we're told there are only 35 DHANPs in North America and ND Amerine says homeopathy is] 'so effective when used correctly' [...a slide says homeopathy is] 'an art and science' and has aspects including 'prophylaxis, diagnosis, and therapeutics' [...and she says] 'I hear young [naturopathic] doctors say homeopathy is not scientific and I 100% disagree [...] one of the fundamental of the science of homeopathy is always like cures like [...] to me it is naturopathic medicine [...and she talks about] streptococcinum nosode [...] to prevent [...] I have my daughter's first grade class all have been taking it [...] it's pretty awesome for prophylaxis [...] if you don't apply that law of similars, then homeopathy doesn't respond [...] homeopathy shines [...and she shows a pediatric case] a 5 yo little girl [...with] really bad ringworm [...and she gave] Tellerium 200c [...] to show the power of homeopathy clinically and the usefulness [...] you can see this over and over [...] and she tells us 'goal in medicine: treat effectively, treat gentle, treat swiftly [...] this did this [...] I don't know what I would do without it [...and Jawer says] that's a remarkable case and a very impressive illustration of the value that homeopathy can have even extreme circumstances [...]";

wow!  Quite the efficacy posture for empty remedies.  As a skeptic I must say: the ND's experience with the patient is not proof of efficacy.  There are SO MANY other things going on that need isolated.  An N of one is merely an anecdote.  Amazing that something so crazy is being done to a child.

"[and then MD Bell whose presentation is] 'The Nature of Homeopathic Remedies in Triggering Adaptive Biological Responses to Remedies' [...and we're told she's of] the University of Arizona [...and she speaks of] the skeptic's argument that homeopathy isn't scientific [...] the skeptic's always say 'look, the remedies themselves are so dilute by the time you finish making them there's nothing there [...] this is completely unscientific, it's all placebo' [...yet she insists on] the signal property of remedies [...and then a bunch of weirdo nanoblather]";

as if they work, as if they COULD work in terms of all we know about chemistry and physics.

"[and then Land who's part is termed] 'Homeopathy: Standing Up Under Scrutiny' [which talks about intrahomeopathy bureaucracy]";

but homeopathy doesn't withstand rigorous scientific analysis.
