Changelog 2014-06-25 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 / politically 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!]

001. added:

the vitalism [science-ejected subset naturopathy] claims of:

ND Arce;

ND Hassberger;

ND Kruzel;

ND Telfair;

the State of Iowa;
the State of Virginia;

the 'science subset naturopathy' category claims of:

ND Brody;

ND Paddock;

ND Telfair;

002. video link and commentary:

002.a. the very well-spoken Rahman, M. (ND CCNM 1996), of Ontario's Pinewood Natural Health Center -- a practice comprises of NDs Kern, Nozari, Sasson, Zambri -- who uses "Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique" states in "Top TEN things to Talk to a Naturopathic Doctor About - Michael Rahman, Top Naturopath in Toronto" [vsc 2014-06-25; my comments are in unquoted bold]:

[tags: #NDRahman #Ontarionaturopathy #PinewoodNaturalHealthCentre #codedvitalism #scienceclaim]
"[from the description] have you been considering going to see a naturopathic doctor? In this video, hear top naturopathic doctor, Dr. Michael Rahman discuss[es] what Naturopathic medicine is, why to visit this kind of doctor, what is different, what's similar. Learn about Pinewood Natural Health Centre at, like us on [...]"; 

ah, yes, interesting, "top".  I'm always interested in a naturopathy's explanation of 'what naturopathy is'.  Will it be truthful?  Complete?  Enough information to make an informed choice?  Well, the video is about 16 minutes long, plenty of time to provide the pertinents from someone who's "top". 

"[from the video] welcome, my name is Dr. Michael Rahman [...practicing in] Toronto, Ontario [...] for well over 18 years [...] hundreds of thousands of people [...] in consultation or when I'm doing lectures [...]"; 

wow, sounds like one of those STADIUM-filling rock bands! 

"there's a lot of valuable information here in terms of what you might expect with natural medicine [...]";

lets get some value. 

"[from a slide] what is naturopathic medicine? [...] diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease using scientifically proven natural therapies [...]"; 

ah, the old science claim.  And here I though we were going to get VALUE!  Instead, we get MISLABELING.  See 002.b. below for all the junk at his practice that is truly, NOT epistemically speaking scientifically proven or even, ontologically speaking, NATURAL.

 "there are some main principles here we have to understand [...from the slide] #2. the healing power of nature [which he verbally ACTUALLY skips, I'll write that again ACTUALLY skips...] #4 doctor as teacher [...] I look towards educating a person [...] you can expect that everything will be looked at [...]";

ah, but obviously, not everything will be revealed up front because there's that coded vitalism.  So, NO transparent explanation of naturopathy's foundational premise!  We DON'T DESERVE to know.  So, you are NOT teaching me, you are DECEIVING me!   By way of omission.

"the mental, emotional, and spiritual components [...] Chinese medicine [...] acupuncture [...] homeopathy [...] advanced diagnostics [] heart rate variability [...abbreviated] HRV [and]
BTA [...] allergy elimination, NAET [which is applied kinesiology...]";

ah, the scientifically proven spiritual context! Because in naturopathy, there is no distinction truly between what science supports and what is an article of faith, yet those two areas are falsely labeled as distinctly "scientific".  And homeopathy is a great test: totally scientifically discredited, falsely labeled scientific in a commerce and supposedly professional context by this ND.  Also NAET garbage.  Now Wikipedia states about NAET: "several reviews of the available evidence for various alternative techniques in allergy diagnosis have determined that applied kinesiology, the primary diagnostic technique in NAET, is ineffective at diagnosing allergies and advise against its use. Various medical associations also advise against its use, including the European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology,  the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology,  the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy and the Allergy Society of South Africa."

002.b. now, at the Ontario practice of ND Rahman:

002.b1. the adult intake form does not transparently reveal naturopathy's fundamental vitalistic science-exterior basis, merely stating about HPN:

"the following principles are the foundation for naturopathic medical practice [...#1] the healing power of nature, vis medicatrix naturae: naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent healing ability in the body which is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to recovery, and facilitate and augment this healing ability [...]";

I find it repugnant that this coding is happening.  Always happening with naturopathy. 

002.b2. in "Electrodermal Screening", the bogus diagnostic, archived here, we're told:

"EDS is the measurement of the body's acupuncture points and meridian systems [which don't actually exist!]. It is a blend of technology and traditional Chinese medical theory. The process consists of the individual holding a brass rod in one hand, while the naturopathic doctor touches a certain point on the body (usually the hand or foot) with a stylus (pen-type probe) and a measurement is recorded. It is a resistance measurement procedure that is based on 'electrical engineering physics.'  This process is non-invasive (it does not puncture the skin) and does not give shocks. The system is used to assess the function of the organ systems such as the intestines, lymph, kidney, liver, etc. It may be used to determine the overall state of regulation and may also be used to identify infection, dental problems, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, weakness to heavy metals and toxins, and food and environmental allergies or sensitivities [...]"; 


002.b3. the bio. page of fellow practice ND Zambri states:

"her practice focuses on women's health issues and pediatrics including perinatal health, well-child check-ups, homeopathic prophylaxis, female hormonal imbalances, and infertility." 

I'm guessing that "homeopathic prophylaxis" is a coding for homeopathic vaccination.  It is hugely ethically untenable to use homeopathy, the empty pill bogosity, to supposedly prevent childhood infection diseases.
