001. CAND states in "Guiding Principles" [vsc 2010-03-08]:
"naturopathic doctors are guided by six principles [...] emphasized throughout a naturopathic doctor's training [...that form] the foundation of this distinct form of health care [...#2] the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae) [HPN-VMN...] the powerful and inherent healing ability of your body, mind and spirit [...an] ordered and intelligent healing ability."
Note: and that's all you get. There is NO MENTION -- in any straightforward kind of manner -- of the actual context of this #2 principle, which is that human physiology is run by a 'purposeful life spirit' aka 'vital force'.
002. upon the preponderance:
when the beast is cornered and light is shone upon it [when HPN-VMN is decoded], #2 is a sectarian vitalistic context that is thoroughly science-discarded.
Note: what kind of supposed 'profession' opaquely communicates its essential premise?
Not much different from Scientology getting their foot in the door with a personality test!
