[Mission emphasis: I do this continuous exercise to expose the inherent fraud that naturopathy is logically, academically, commercially, legislatively and clinically. Hugely misleading category labels such as "science based" and "evidence based" "nonsectarian" are being placed upon what truly is science-exterior and even more so disproven sectarian / quack nonsense! Then, the largest of betrayals toward the public occurs with highly orchestrated '.gov' endorsements of naturopaths as "licensed" and "professional." Beware, the naturopathic licensed falsehood racket marches on!]

Mittman, P. (ND NCNM 1985) and Guiltinan, J. (ND Bastyr 1986) state in "Naturopathic Physicians - Show #3, Chapter 1: Chronic Disease (1 of 5)" [vsc 2013-06-07; my comments are in unquoted bold]:.

"[ND Guiltinan says NDs believe in] an innate ability to heal [IAH...] a ladder of intervention or a therapeutic order [...] the doctor plays a critical role in education, in being a teacher";
ah, yes, that science-ejected essential-to-naturopathy vitalism (archived here) which here is coded as IAH. The therapeutic order also has vitalism as a centerpiece (archived here). Now, Bastyr claims to be science-based, but also based on the science-ejected. What kind of educator could someone who thinks so conflatedly, like that, that be?
"[ND Mittman says] naturopathic physicians have the capacity to add something to the healthcare system today [...] it's people who have a very deep understanding of chronic diseases, the causes, and the solutions [...the future is] a place that is screaming out for naturopathic medicine [...] a future with naturopathic medicine is far better than a future without naturopathic medicine [...]";
really? Mittman's SCNM has also labeled as science (archived here) that which is quite science-exterior (see page 003 of their catalog) for decades. How deep of thought is it to think in the same manner as if 2 + 2 = 5? This junk thought ADDS something to healthcare's future? I don't think so. I think the future is intelligent, and not naturopathillogical.
Note: the sponsor for the segment is Integrative Therapeutics. Their medical advisory board consists mainly of NDs who provide "scientific counsel, guidance, and direction. They assist in developing rigorous scientific protocols." Hmmmm. I'm quite skeptical of supplements, which are getting quite a lot of criticism these days.
