Universidad del Turabo: New AANP-AANMC-CNME School, Same False Labels

here, more falsehoods from naturopathyland, of course:

001. the North American Board of Naturopathic Examiners, on their home page [2015 archived] states:

"welcome Universidad del Turabo!  The CNME Board of Directors granted candidacy status to the ND program offered by the Universidad del Turabo in Puerto Rico, effective May 31, 2015.  CNME candidate ND programs are required to achieve CNME accreditation within five years. NABNE has accepted applications from students who have completed biomedical science coursework at the naturopathic medical education […]";

so, AANMC-AANP-CNME-NABNE growth.  Licensed falsehood marches on. By the way, it is NABNE that runs NPLEX, the ND licensure exam that falsely labels homeopathy as clinical science.

002. at Universidad del Turabo's:

002.a. "Principles of Naturopathic Medicine" [2015 archived], we're told:

"the practice of naturopathic medicine emerges from six principles of healing. These principles are based on the objective observation of the nature of health and disease and are examined continually in light of scientific analysis. These principles stand as the distinguishing marks of the profession."

so there's the claim, that continuous false label, that the core of naturopathy survives scientific scrutiny, including its vitalism, teleology, supernaturalism, and homeopathy and kind.

002.b. the student handbook "Universidad del Turabo School of Health Sciences Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine Program" [2015 archived] obviously also labels naturopathy as "science."  The root or stem "homeop" is within that document at least 26 times.
