Changelog 2020-02-22 and ND Video


here, I summarize recent additions to my public naturopathy database.  I also link to an ND's video each changelog, quote from, and tag the video in some detail:

[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!]

Tu No Feco! - BC ND Klop Not Allowed to Engage in Fecal Transplant Tourism

here, the BC ND 'regulator' CNPBC takes a stand on fecal transplants while I also point out the BCNA takes a long-standing false position regarding naturopathy's epistemic status:

001.in "Taking Children With Autism to Mexico for Fecal Transplants 'Out of Scope' for Naturopaths, Regulator Says" (2020-01-14):


"B.C. naturopaths are not authorized to transport young patients to another country in order to treat autism with fecal microbiota transplants [...] the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia [CNPBC] has confirmed [...] B.C. naturopaths are not permitted to perform FMT for any reason [...] BCNA executive director Glenn Caissie [sp., Cassie] said that suspending Klop's membership is 'the most serious step we can take' [...]";

Cassie is interesting.  See 002.

002. Cassie, who is not a naturopath, writes at BCNA in "The Nature of Naturopathy" [2020 archived]:

"naturopathic medicine is science based natural medicine [...of]  a science-based platform [...]  the same scientific fashion of allopathic care [...]";

yet, of course, this is not categorically true.  Who will sanction BCNA?  CNPBC?  Don't hold your breath...

British Columbia Naturopath's Fecal Transplants For Autistic Children Criticized

here, fecal microbiota transplants and naturopathy in-the-news:

001. at ca.news.yahoo.com, we're told in "B.C. Naturopath's Pricey Fecal Transplants for Autism are Experimental and Risky, Scientists Say" (2020-01-10) [2020 archived]:

"Jason Klop [...] a Vancouver naturopath who charges $15,000 US for children with autism to have fecal transplants at a clinic near Tijuana, Mexico could put them at serious risk of infection with an unproven treatment, according to doctors and scientists [...the ND] claims in Facebook videos that he's treated kids as young as two from across the world using pills and liquids made from the stool of two American adolescents. He says he's seen 'dramatic improvements' in symptoms of autism spectrum disorder [...]";

wow. Now, you have to wonder, where did he go to school to be inculcated, perhaps, in such an aggressive treatment that seems to be without the normal safety nets of IRB and experiment registration?

002. his online pages:

002.a. there's "About Dr. Jason Klop" [2020 archived] and at LinkedIn, a bio. tells us his alma mater is BINM;

002.b. there's also his "Healthy Gut" podcast episode; ;

002.c. and this may be the FMT practice.




California Licensed Falsehood News: CNMC ND D'Amico Reappointment 2020

here, news of the personnel on the California Naturopathic Medicine Committee, which is the State of California directly hawking licensed falsehood to the population:

001. at californianewswire.com, Christopher Simmons writes in "Calif. Gov. Newsom Announces Appointments for 1.7.20 including to the California Naturopathic Medicine Committee" [2020 archived]:

"Greta D'Amico [...who] earned a doctor of naturopathic medicine degree from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences [...] has been reappointed to the California Naturopathic Medicine Committee where she has served since 2015 [...] a physician at Four Rivers Naturopathic Clinic PC since 2004 [...] D’Amico is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, California Naturopathic Doctors Association [...] National Center for Homeopathy and the Philanthropic Educational Organization [...]";

so wow.  Like saying 'we've reappointed the homeopathy falsehood purveyor...'  State approved.

002. at the ND's practice, we're told in:

002.a. "Meet Our Doctors" [2020 archived]

"after considering a career in conventional medicine I finally decided that naturopathic medicine was the best fit for me. It allows me to practice a form of medicine that actually addresses the cause of illness [...]";

wow, there's some serious shade.  The accusation that modern medicine is negligent, grossly. But of course, homeopathy.... The ND's practice partner states, on the same page:

"my practice is centered in the conviction that our bodies have the innate intelligence to recover health. I believe that my job as a naturopathic doctor is to assist and facilitate that natural process

which of course is coded vitalism.  Something rather honest there: not the scientific fact, the conviction.  Interesting.
