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:
the vitalism of:
OHSU to Appendix B.01.c.;
the science claims of:
NDs Berkebile, Day, Hangee-Bauer, Horowitz, Metz, Zengion to Appendix I.05.b.;
ND Pizzorno et al and the L.A. Times to Appendix I.07.02.;
ND O'Dell; ND Olic; ND Oskin; ND Ouano to Appendix I.05.L.;
BINM to Appendix I.01.a3.;
002. video of the week link [not to pun]:
MacLeod, C. (ND CCNM) states in "Naturopathic Medicine and Cancer - Dr. Colin MacLeod" [vsc 2012-03-24; my comments are in unquoted bold]:
#naturopathiconcology #iscador #vitaminC #pancreaticcancer
"what is naturopathic medicine: careful investigation, in-depth evaluation, gentle, effective treatment, long-term wellness, proper diagnosis --> proper treatment [...]";
sounds very different from the absurdity that I know naturopathy to be! For instance, being "careful, in-depth, and seeking what is proper and effective IMMEDIATELY knocks out one of their favorite treatments, homeopathy. It also leads to the conclusion that the naturopathic claim that science legitimately contains what is nonscience. But, in naturopathyland nonsense is sense;
"what naturopaths do [...includes] naturopathic oncology [...] how we are different from medical doctors [...we treat] the root cause [...and speaks of cancer] physiology [...and] genes [...and] mistletoe injections, intravenous vitamin C [...and studies that are] very mainstream [...for] pancreatic cancer [...regarding] Iscador [...and] vitamin C [...as] viable treatment in pancreatic cancer [...] I've seen quite a few naturopaths use it [...] I've seen it work [...] although the research isn't there [...] there's good results [but such doesn't work, and why should it]."
again, that naturopathic thought-muddle: useful for cancer but not known in any rigorous way to be useful. Yet, they do make money along the way.
