Skeptical Letter Writer To ASA About CNM, 2010-11

here, I cite from the blog "Skeptical Letter Writer" [SLW; see 001., below]:

001. SLW writes in "The College of Naturopathic Medicine (again)" (2010-11-13)[vsc 2010-11-15]:

"here's another installment in my continuing series of complaints against the College of Naturopathic Medicine [...] can the college substantiate any of their claims [...about] reflexology [...and] applied kinesiology [...e.g., the former] 'helps to restore natural balance of the body resulting in an improved sense of health and well being [sic]. Energy, mood, circulation and immunity can also be enhanced. This relaxing treatment benefits many health conditions such as: stress, anxiety, insomnia, muscular pain, headaches, migraines, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances e.g. PMS, menopause, and more' [...and the latter] 'uses muscles testing to identify imbalances within the body, so removes the need for guess-work in treating a client, friends and family [...] kinesiology [...] produces results quickly' [...] I suspect that the booklet may be in breach of the British Code of Advertising, Sales Promotion and Direct Marketing (CAP Code) [...for both,] under Section 12.1, I challenge whether the advertisers can substantiate their claims."

002. well, it can't hurt to complain about part of the weird diagnostics and treatments that are within 'the hugely weird naturopathic'.
