here, I cite from the product descriptions at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble for the future edition of naturopathy's "Textbook of Natural Medicine" which has been so rife with NATUROPATHILLOGICALITY in earlier editions that, really, I'm salivating thinking of what further absurdity / irrationality has been conjured up:
001. Amazon.com states in "Textbook of Natural Medicine, 4e [Hardcover]" (ISBN 1437723330 , 9781437723335 ) [vsc 2012-01-31]:
"more than 10,000 research literature citations show that the content is based on science rather than opinions or anecdotes [...] coverage of the philosophy of natural medicine includes its history and background, with discussions of toxicity, detoxification, and scientific documentation of the healing actions of nature and natural substances [...] a scientific presentation [that] includes the science behind concepts and treatments [...] a comprehensive, scientific treatment plan [...] evidence-based coverage of diseases and conditions to help you make accurate diagnoses and provide effective therapy [...] in-depth, evidence-based coverage of 73 diseases and conditions includes key diagnostic criteria, pathophysiology of diseases, and therapeutic rationales [...] diagnostic procedures include practical, easy-to-follow descriptions of evidence-based techniques";
Note: science, science, science. And, of course, within all this, are naturopathy's "common therapeutic modalities [...like] acupuncture, homeopathy." I have the book on preorder for May. Looking forward to exposing MORE of the naturopathic nonsense that is so ABUNDANT within the second and third editions of this book.
002. Barnes and Noble states in "Textbook of Natural Medicine / Edition 4" [vsc 2012-01-31]:
"covers in-depth, evidence-based natural medicine approaches [...like] ayurveda [...] colon therapy [...] homeopathy [...and speaks of the] scientific basis of acupuncture";
Note: the publisher is, we're specifically told, "Elsevier Health Sciences."
