Changelog 2012-02-12 & ND Video

here, I summarize this week's additions to my public naturopathy database.  I also link to an ND's video each changelog, quote from, and tag the video in some detail:

001. added:

         the vitalism of:

ND Hinchey to Appendix B.05.i.c.03.,
many bio. links to Appendix B.05.i.c.03.;

         the science claims of:

ND Quinn to Appendix I.05.n.,
many bio. links to Appendix I.05.n.;

002. video of the week link [not to pun]:
 "pulse diagnosis [...] is a way to measure the vitality of the body [vitalism!'s] not for their heart rate, not for the strength of their heart or how well its functioning [...] your are feeling for more a sense of their vitality [...and] which organ systems might be out of balance [really!...and its] a way to fine-tune what you are choosing for someone as supplement or as a therapy to make sure its going to match their body's energies [vitalism, spiritism whatever woo!] because the body is an energetic system.  Sometimes I use little magnets to put over acupuncture points or over organ systems to kind of stimulate those systems to kind of help bring in energy to the system. Sometimes I use a device called an activator [...] and I'll use it over nerve points along the back";

Note: Chirobase has an article on the activator technique.  Apparently, it is quite woo-ful to use an activator at all USUALLY [as chiropractic is]. I can only say that ND Sutton has taken activator usage into a further UNUSUAL / dubious therapeutic direction.  Looks to me like a parlor gimmick too, like pulse diagnosis. This stuff is so ancient, superstitious or quacky what else is there to say?  He seems to have lots of supplements to sell directly, too.   They are, after all, his backdrop for the videos.  And of course, if you watch the video, the question of all questions is: WHAT'S UP WITH THE WEIRD SHAKING HAND???  I mean, they REALLY want you to see his weird shaking hand in the video.  Are we supposed to be somehow in AWE, like being in the presence of an epileptic king just before his healing touch?  It's actually quite a humorous coincidence that his hand is the video's still image.

  And by the way, yes, that CoAND link above claims 'science subset medical science subset naturopathy subset homeopathy'.  They've been doing that for years.
