Changelog 2013-06-25 and ND Video

here, I summarize recent 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:

[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!]

odds and ends:

Bastyr Center for Natural Health tells us 
(2013-06-17)[vsc 2013-06-22]:
"[by way of Garrett, J. (ND Bastyr 2012)] homeopathics:
small scraps, bumps and bruises 
can be hard to avoid. Having a few vials of
 homeopathic remedies on hand can help. I like 
to carry arnica for bumps and bruises, 
apis for insect bites,
 hypericum for small cuts and 
rhus tox for poison ivy";

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

002.a. from a Colorado Association of Naturopathic Doctors page, there's a link to the AANP video "Naturopathic Physicians - Show #2, Chapter 2: Integrating Cancer Treatment (2 of 5)"(uploaded 2010-08-27)[vsc 2013-05-26] which states:

tags: #naturopathiconcology #NDRubin #CTCA
"this program is brought to you in part through a grant from Cancer Treatment Centers of America [...] Daniel Rubin, ND FABNO [...speaks of] raw physician talent [...]";

Note: this week's video is merely a springboard to other ND web pages!

002.b. more on Rubin, D. (SCNM 1997):

002.b1. we get the essentially naturopathic in "Naturopathic Medicine: Ways, Means, and Practicality" [vsc 2013-06-25]:

“[naturopathy's] precepts: vis medicatrix naturae [slide 010...] vis medicatrix naturae. Vis = energy, strength or force [...] the body possesses the inherent ability to restore health. The physician's role is to facilitate this process with the aid of natural nontoxic therapies [slide 011...] the vital force. This describes the energy essential for life, the innate life principle, or the inherent power within every living organism. Naturopathic doctors seek to support the vital force [slide 012]”;

Note: ah, ye old science-ejected vitalism at the heart of naturopathy.

002.b2. oddly termed by the practice as science:

002.b2i. in "Dr FAQs" [vsc 2013-06-25]:  

"a licensed naturopathic physician (ND) has attended a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an MD";

Note: same?  Same science as the science that is science at a quality college or university?  Same as in opposite!

002.b.2ii. in "Meet Our Physicians" [vsc 2013-06-25]:

 "Lise Alschuler, ND, FABNO [...] she believes that her job as a naturopathic physician and educator is to stimulate and support the innate healing processes within each individual by applying a scientifically based strategy";

Note: ah, yes, the scientific treatment of patients within the overarching figmentation-context of vitalism, coded of course.  FABNO is the new 'naturopathic oncologist' designation, and those two words are two of the scariest I can think of.

002.c. more on CTCA:

well, there's the pages that states vitalism and homeopathy and labels it all science grounded.
