[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!]

"Perhaps one difference between farmers and naturopaths
is that farmers don't have magic beans. -r.c."
"Do our veterans who've sacrificed so much
deserve to be sacrificed on an altar of
pseudoscience, pseudodiagnostics, and pseudotherapeutics...
falsely labeled science-based?"

Sandilands, N. (ND CCNM), McCulloch, N. (ND CCNM) state in "Naturopathic Dentistry" (2015):
[tags: #NDSandilands #NDMcCulloch #naturopathicdentistry #seedingquackery].
"[the instructor or administrator tells us to expect] a very unique perspective of oral diagnosis [...and the NDs state] how many of you are familiar with naturopathic medicine? [...] what it is [...and we'll talk about] manifestations of disease as it presents in the oral cavity [...] I'm going to tell you about the schooling and the education to become a naturopathic doctor [...] you have to do a four-year undergraduate degree in premedical sciences [...] there's a series of board exams [...] we're trying always to get to the root cause [...] we want to figure out why [...] a deeper level [...] we try to keep it in the natural realm as much as possible [...] we're really complementary [...] IV vitamins [...] it's something I do a lot in my practice [...] a very quick way of restoring balance [...] we'll use this for a host of different conditions [...] acupuncture [...for] when I'm trying to regulate hormones [...] this works really really well [...and they just had in a] two-week old [...] we're always looking at things holistically, the mouth is obviously an extension of our entire digestive system [...indicating what happening] further down in the digestive system [...] what I want you guys to do is sort of put on your naturopathic hats [...] let's think about the why [...are they eating] really clean [...] we call this in Chinese medicine [...] it doesn't really overlap that well with Western medicine [...] liver qi stagnation [...] that doesn't really matter [...] this is typical North American tongue [...]";
because it's all good, it all works "really really well".
002.b. the NDs' practice promotes reflexology in "Reflexology" and where we're told:
"reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet, and ears which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflex points, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body";
a very unique perspective; science-exterior nonsense marches on. Deep nonsense. Why oh why.
