[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!]

Christensen, J. (ND BINM) states in "Vancouver Real To Whatever Is With the Zaremba Brothers Podcast #009 - Naturopathic 101" (2014-07-11) [vsc 2014-07-26]
and this is LONG and PAINFUL to watch and rather POINTLESS, because here's a gaggle of four people talking about things very vaguely and they all basically barely know anything! Why this has to happen for an hour and twenty minutes, I've no idea. The hosts own a floatation tank business. So of course, we're all overstimulated and need such! I'll briefly excerpt stuff I found:.
[tags: #NDChristensen #scienceclaim #detox #homeopathy].
"[the ND] the modalities that we use to treat patients are a little bit different [...] acupuncture [...] adjustments of the spine [...] homeopathy [...] homeopathy would be throughout the four years, Chinese medicine would be throughout the four years [...] we sort of learn a little bit of everything [...] as a naturopath, we are being trained in homeopathy [...] it works on the premise of like cures like [...] like a vaccine [...] you would give poison ivy homeopathic [...] there's no actual poison ivy in the remedy [...] 30 usually is what we dose [...] there's actually no residue left of that poison ivy in there [...its] energetic [...]";
my arse it's energetic and like a vaccine, in the scientific sense.
"[the host] placebo effect [...] how that's a very real thing [...how the mind] reconstructs the very matter that's the ailment or the biochemical imbalance [and fixes things...] just through the power of our minds [...the ND] totally [...]";
yeah, sure. Yeah, man, totally.
"[the ND] food is becoming toxic [...with sleep we] detox [...]";
yeah, the old toxins scare.
"[host] is naturopathic medicine [...] based off of science? [...the ND] yes [...] I had a kinesiology [degree...] which is very science based [...host] is it [homeopathy] scientifically tested too? Like the result of it, with placebo, the way that they always test medicine? [...the ND] I think it's so hard to in homeopathy, because it's such vague symptoms that it could be helping out with [...]";
science, up to the point where science isn't actually TRIED. And as opposed to SIGNS and measurables, there's a kind of admission here that a typical patient of an ND is rather quasi-ill, to be polite.
"[the ND] you don't necessarily come to a naturopathic doctor expecting that your results are going to be that quick [...] we're not going to fix you overnight [...]";
"[the host] no more room for thoughts [leads to a kind of ideal...]";
wow, never heard so much talk of NOT THINKING.
Note overall: I found this video a complete waste of time. There's a kind of 'it's all good' incredulity, and if this is 'selling' naturopathy, then FAIL.
