Canada's ND Pincott Labels Naturopathy and Homeopathy "Science-Based" This 2011 Naturopathy Awareness Week

Pincott, I. (ND NCNM) states in "2011 is lucky 13 for Naturopathic Medicine Week" (2011-05-03)[vsc 2011-05-03]:

"this year marks the 13th year that Naturopathic Medicine Week (NMW) has been proclaimed in Canada [...] over the course of the week naturopathic doctors across Canada will be providing open house clinic hours as well as public workshops and lectures [...] to educate the public [...] naturopathic physicians (ND’s) are primary health care providers with seven to eight years of post secondary education who practice safe, effective, science-based natural health care [...] ND's diagnose, treat and prevent disease using natural therapies including [...] homeopathy [...] across Canada there are over 1,600 registered ND's and in B.C. there are 376 practicing ND's. ND’s take the time to educate their patients [...] the ND, as educator [...] sift[s] the wheat from the chaff when the media paint a negative view of natural therapies [...] naturopathic medicine week is to help educate the public about the extensive expertise of naturopathic physicians in their role as coach in helping people achieve optimal health and preventing chronic disease [...] Dr. Ingrid Pincott, naturopathic physician, has been practicing since 1985 and can be reached at 250-286-3655 or www.DrPincott.com [...also see] www.cand.ca [...and] www.bcna.ca."

Note: I HUGELY disagree with the science label that here has been placed on what is hugely not science, homeopathy.  But, this is naturopathyland, where false labels and commerce go hand in hand.  So, when is what isn't science science?   And when is educating miseducating?  You got it.
