Homeopathic Awareness Week - North American Naturopathy Version 2014

here, I cite from WHAO regarding WHAW [see 001., below]; and then from a more rational source [see 002., below]:

001. the World Homeopathy Awareness Organization writes at Facebook in "WHAW - World Homeopathy Awareness Week":

"April 10-16 every year, celebrating all those who have healed with homeopathy through volunteer coordinators sharing awareness, education and access of homeopathy in communities around the world; beginning on Dr. Hahnemann's Birthday."

yes, let us GET AWARE.

002. now, homeopathy is fused into North American naturopathy:

002.a. for the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians:

002.b. for the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors:

Note: and in fact AANP and CAND categorizes homeopathy as "science."  Here's AANP labeling homeopathy "medical science".  Here's CAND pushing science as naturopathy's vehicle.

003. when it ain't, more and more and more, as the recent article "Homeopathy Awareness Can Make the World a Healthier, Happier Place" (2014-04-11) in The Guardian states:

"[as reported by Michael Marshall] World Homeopathy Awareness Week – the annual promotional campaign organized by homeopaths around the world – kicked off on Thursday. This year, rather than ignore it, moan about it or condemn it, scientists and skeptics alike should join in [...] so, I say: bring on greater awareness … but awareness in its truest sense. Awareness that homeopathy has no scientific basis, is a waste of your money and has the potential for great harm. If we can continue to spread this kind of awareness, we’ll consign homeopathy to the history books where it belongs."

hear, hear. 

Note: but homeopathy's coffin is, apparently, able to accept an endless amount of nails.  It seems unsaturatable with nails!
