here, I suggest that there be established a Naturopathy-Induced Career Damage Fund [NICDF] due to the falsehood known as 'AANMC Naturopathy Education' [see 001., below], and I suggest where the fund should get its resources from [see 002., below]:
001. the falsehood known as 'AANMC Naturopathy Education':
001.a. the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medicine Colleges [AANMC]:
001.a1. itself states in "About Naturopathic Medicine" [vsc ]:
"naturopathic physicians cooperate with all other branches of medical science."
Note: I have a collection of such 'AANMC science, science, science' statements here.
001.a2. itself states, liked to from the above, in "The 6 Principles" [vsc ]:
"naturopathic medicine celebrates the healing power of nature [HPN]. Naturopathic medicine is dedicated to the study and celebration of nature’s healing powers [coded vitalism...] naturopathic medicine is defined by principles [...] above all, it honors the body’s innate wisdom to heal [coded vitalism...] naturopathic physicians practice the six fundamental principles of naturopathic medicine: [#1] the healing power of nature. Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself [coded vitalism]."
Note: and that's all you get. HPN is not simply what they are stating; it is more complex than that. Now, let me be clear: AANMC has a) labeled naturopathy science (here's my naturopathy-wide repository), and b) stated that HPN essentially defines naturopathy. You would think and expect, therefore, that when you go into an ND or NMD program, that you'd get science (that you'd get what you paid for). But, this is not the case. HPN is, when you look close enough [beyond AANMC's coding], a science-ejected concept (see here) [along with supernaturalism, which they are also falsely positioning as 'within science']. So, you will pursue a few years of 'medical school prerequisites' and then go into an ND / NMD program with an understanding that 'this is science' yet when you boil it all down that is not what naturopathy essentially is all about. You will have been induced into a long, costly falsehood because naturopathy does not accurately and transparently communicate its essential science-exterior sectarian nature [literally].
002. where would a Naturopathy-Induced Career Damage Fund come from? I suggest:
the AANMC member schools; the naturopathic State associations and apparatus; and individual NDs / NMDs.
003. truly, for anyone suckered into naturopathy's racket, it is only just that there be restitution for those ethically offended by this falsehood that then trains its marks to be falsehood purveyors.
