the 'naturopathy is not science, is pseudoscience and / or quackery' claim of:

MD Lipson at

the New York University Langone Medical Center
[all the while simultaneously absurdly 
labeling naturopathy a branch of medical science
and employing a 'naturopath urologist']
points out that several 'essentially' naturopathic treatments
and theories are not science supported

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

002.a. Shields, A. (ND NCNM) [vsc 2013-02-16], AANP and OANP member in good standing, mentions at that page:

"Dr. Shields has received advanced training in homeopathy, nutritional response testing, craniosacral therapy, applied kinesiology, IV therapy, iridology and injection therapies for pain and dysfunction."

Note: what a cluster of unicorn tears and magic beans.

002.b. and to see AK in action, there's "Dr. Alexis Shields, Naturopathic Doctor" [vsc 2013-02-16]:

[tags: #appliedkinesiology #drybloodanalysis #homeopathy #nutritionalresponsetesting #miseducation
"I'm looking for the underlying reason [...and we see her practicing pediatrics apparently, and with an adult in an examination room with a collection of AK test tubes, her doing applied kinesiology muscle testing and she says she specializes in] homeopathy [...and uses] nutritional response testing [...which is AK] muscle testing, acupuncture points, and organ reflex points to figure out exactly what is imbalanced in the body [...] so that we can treat the underlying issue [...] a holistic complete picture of that person's health [...] I think it is a common misconception that we are completely against conventional medicine [...] my biggest reward is really educating people."

Note: we're shown that she is an alumnus of NCNM, and shown the ND oath which claims "the science of naturopathic medicine." On a list of therapies is mentioned something called "dry blood cell analysis" and we see a blood sample being applied to a slide from someone's ear lobe and looked at under a microscope.  Here's another ND claiming that DBA is a huge diagnostic tool.  I'm reminded of something MD Crislip wrote at "with live blood analysis, practitioners take the seed of truth that the evaluation of the blood constituents can give valuable information and grow a forest of fantasy and magic. It is something to behold."

Overall note: there IS an underlying reason / an underlying issue as to why people like this are being churned out to victimize society with clinical magic beans and unicorn tears medicine.  They are called naturopathy schools, like NCNM.  The question is, if miseducated -- which is what an ND education is, miseducation -- is it right to then be educating people 'as if'?

here's a video shot at NCNM uploaded in 2009 apparently by NCNM, "Dr Schleich-NCNM" [vsc 2013-02-16; his name is pronounced Slike], featuring the president of that school, the alma mater of ND Shields.  He mentions many of the institutional accomplices involved in this licensed falsehood: local, regional and federal.  He tells us, in a video mostly dealing with getting naturopathy licensed in the Philippines:

"I am the president of National College of Natural Medicine [he was previously the president of Canada's CCNM...] we have been offering for 53 years a doctorate program in naturopathic medicine [...] our college is the parent of naturopathic medical education in North America [...] we have for example a project called the Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Project, a large reference text is being produced by Elsevier Science".

that continual science subset nonsense claim, from end-product practicing ND all the way up to the guy at the top!
