Changelog 2012-06-10 and 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 science claims of:

ND Caprio; ND Campitelli;

ND Mann and ND Yates;
ND Marcus; ND McCalment-Fuqua

ND Doig

the 'naturopathy is pseudoscience and quackery' claim of:

Orac / MD PhD Gorski 
 at National Geographic's Science Blog Respectful Insolence 

002. video of the week link [not to pun]:


#Galarowicz #naturopathicdoctor #scienceclaim #professionalclaim
"[title on video] Robert Galarowicz ND.  Naturopathic Doctor.  Expert in Clinical Nutrition, Mind-Body Health & Natural Health Sciences [...he states] what is a naturopathic doctor? [...] professionals like me [...] a naturopathic doctor [...] the human body is pretty much viewed in the same way [...] we use natural treatments to help someone [...] vitamins, minerals [...] lifestyle changes [...] I'm in an office with a couple medical doctors [...] what we are looking for is the root cause [...] toxicities, nutritional deficiencies [...] visit my web site."

So, lets do that.

"naturopathic medicine is a natural approach to health.  It recognizes that the body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process has a set order and intelligence, and that it knows that nature heals through the power of its own life force [vitalism]. The physician’s role is to guide and nurture this process [...] it is these principles that distinguish naturopathic medicine from other medical approaches: [#1] the healing power of nature: naturopathic medicine is a distinctively natural approach to health and healing.  It understands that the body has an innate ability to fix and repair."

And in "Natural Health Services" [vsc 2012-06-10]:

"the term natural health describes a fully scientific, reason-based approach to health care. The unifying beliefs, concepts, and general attitudes of natural health practitioners fall under the term [...] much of the knowledge and practice of such techniques have repeatedly stood the test of modern scientific scrutiny. Natural health is not anti-scientific or anti-rational; it rests on a foundation of objective study and research into natural phenomena [...] 'an evolution is occurring in health care as more natural medicines gain acceptance. Interestingly, this acceptance is largely a result of increased scientific investigation and the public's awareness of this research [...] science is paving the way for the medicine of the future -- a medicine that recognizes the healing power of nature.' [from] Encyclopedia of Nutritional Supplements by Michael T. Murray, N.D."

Note: so, we have the label professional and science placed upon the patently science ejected vitalistic and this is called reason-based, not anti-scientific and not anti-rational.


now, this ND is of the nonAANP type, but says exactly what the AANP types do.
