NMD Hinojosa-Sinks: Naturopathy's Essential Science-Ejected Vitalism

here, a citation illustrating the essentially naturopathic science-ejected vitalistic [see 001., below]:

001. Arizona NMD Hinojosa-Sinks, J. (NMD SCNM) states:

001.a. in "Meet Your Doctor" [vsc 2010-12-17]:

"naturopathic medicine is based on the belief [it is indeed a belief system] that the human body has an innate healing ability [coded vitalism...] Dr. Hinojosa-Sinks [...] firmly believes [it is indeed a belief system] that each person has the ability to heal [coded vitalism]. She focuses her assessment and therapies on finding and stimulating the body's inherent power to heal [coded vitalism], which is known as a person's 'vital force' [explicit vitalism...] she is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) and the Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association (AZNMA) [...] naturopathic physicians base [a belief basis] their practice on six timeless principles [as in 'science-ain't-ever-gonna-sway-us'...#1] let nature heal [coded vitalism]."

Note: so, vital force.

001.b. in "Acupuncture" [vsc 2010-12-17]:

"acupuncture is a therapy of traditional Chinese medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago [...and] is based on the belief [yes, belief] that people have a vital energy, called 'qi' [explicit vitalism], that circulates through twelve invisible [as in nonexistent] energy [a misuse of the term, scientifically speaking] channels known as 'meridians' on the body [...that] irrigate and nourish the tissues [...each] is associated with a different organ system. An imbalance in the flow of qi [explicit vitalism] throughout a meridian is how disease begins [...] acupuncturists insert needles into specified points along meridian lines to [...] reestablish the regular flow of qi [explicit vitalism] through the body [...] acupuncture treatments can help the body's internal organs correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy [coded vitalism] through the meridians [...] all ages and all conditions can benefit from acupuncture [panacea-like promise]."

Note: yes, the invisible-figmentatious as causative, manipulable, and highly efficacious!

Wow, and not a lick of admission that this is science-ejected crap.  I do not consent.
