Changelog 2016-02-13 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:

the British Columbia Naturopathic Association;

ND Bailey;

ND Glidden;

ND Paulson;

the 'science subset naturopathy' category claims of:

NDs Abercrombie, Martin, Sandford;
ND Adamiak;
ND Aguiar, DeHaas, Fassler, Heckt, Quinn;

ND Paternak;

ND Somody;
ND Stegmaier;

ND Tapp;

the 'scientific rejection of vitalism':

F.A. Carey in the textbook 
"Organic Chemistry"

"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog:
I commend the space given for conflicting
opinions on homeopathy in this article. -r.c.";, in
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog:
Interesting. Invoking 'the Toxin Boogeyman.'
-r.c.";, in
"CKNW Health Series: Homeopathy, Help or Hoax?" (2016-01-29):
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: I think implying
‘homeopathy works’ because therapies all produce a placebo
effect is irrational and naive.  Even effective medications
produce a placebo effect.  The trick is to compare
a therapy with a known inert dummy therapy and
then see how much ABOVE placebo the results are,
to eliminate the placebo background effect.
And don’t forget that a larger confound exists in
terms of studying efficacy, larger than placebo:
regression to the mean.  It turns out most ill people
enrolled in trials are getting better because
they enrolled at their worst: the get better anyway effect.
Which is now known to be a greater confound than
accounting and adjusting for placebo.
I suggest the article:
417-427 (1983).  Yes, 1983. -r.c.";,
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog:  Quite the
promotional piece.Naturopathy has quite an 
uphill battle to establish the PLAUSIBILITY of much
that is listed here. And much listed is science-ejected,
like homeopathy woo.  But you wouldn't know that
from the article.  You'd think it all has scientific support,
with the presence of a stethoscope around a person
of authority's neck, when in fact, such things as
homeopathy, toxins, candida [wow how 1980s],
and supplementation are quite without such.  I
love the 'we do lots of things, something works'.
Aka, 'we don't bother to find out specifically...'
Naturopathy:a failed medieval paradigm. -r.c.", in
"Maple Ridge Naturopath Fined by College" (2016-02-04):
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: Interesting, 
we're informed: "the college investigated, after it
received a written complaint form Health Canada alleging that
Strauss had imported and used the non-sterile, counterfeit,
injectable product in his practice."  I only ever see naturopaths
sanctioned from outside the profession!  With all the oral
homeopathy and 'biopuncture' that they do, aka
homeopathic injections, aren't
 those counterfeit pharmacy too?  
Won't see themselves sanctioning 
themselves about that... -r.c."',
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: Not sure of the logic here:
a chiropractor authors a naturopathic titled article
about a subject, exercise, that isn't essentially chiropractic
or naturopathic. Wouldn't it be better to have a
exercise scientist? -r.c";

002. video link and commentary:

Wannigman, P. (ND SCNM), also a registered pharmacist, states in "Heart Expansion Radio 4: Dr. Peter Wannigman N.D. Exploring Naturopathic Medicin" {that spelling} (2016-02-09):

[tags: #codedvitalism #scienceclaim #allopathiclabel #homeopathyefficacyclaim]
"[the ND says] the paradigm of a naturopathic doctor [...] naturopathic paradigms [...including] the healing power of nature [...] understanding that the body, given the opportunity, will always take avenues to heal itself [...] it doesn't just stop stagnantly trying to get well [...and]  [...] allowing the body to heal itself [...] its natural abilities [...he went to SCNM with] 2 years of general sciences [...] and so you are studying those basic sciences [...] general science boards [...] basic science boards [...] pretty much just like standard medicine is [...] they're set up on the same kind of platform [...and there are] clinical boards [...] we as nauropathic doctors in understanding the biochemistry of the body [...] very similar to what standard allopathic physicians do in their school [...] regular medical allopathics [...] a naturopathic doctor versus being an allopathic doctor [...] naturopathic doctors against allopathic intervensions, and allopathic doctors against naturopathic interventions [...] naturopathic medicine [...and he speaks of] toxicity [...] essentially an naturopathic doctor is always going to look for the cause [...] it's about treating the cause [....] it's not just about treating the symptom [...and naturopathy] treat[s] from that cause basis rather than from the symptoms [like regular medicine supposedly does, and he indicates that regular medicine is like Whackamole, not treating the cause...] because ultimately, if you are just going to put a drug in it, well every single drug you give to somebody, its going to ultimately create many other diseases.  We call them side effects [...]";

ah, coded vitalism, that science basis claim, that slur of "allopathic" and that MDs don't practice competently because all they do as opposed to naturopathy is treat symptoms, and scare tactics.

"[the host says] can we go into really quick the six guiding principles of naturopathic medicine? [...] those are awesome principles [...the ND] they're pretty prominent throughout the whole training  [...] the guiding principles [...these] six tenets [...] these ancient tenets [...] doctor as teacher is to be able to bring forth the information and allow the patient to really fully embrace it, to become conscious of what this is [...] it's about me being able to bring it home to them [...] me as a teacher [...]";

and what do we have taught to us by the ND pharmacist?

"[the ND says regarding] the use of homeopathy [] nature cure [...] these tried and true ancient healing laws of nature [...] really fundamental old school techniques which have been proven through and through [...]";

homeopathy as part of the "proven through and through"?  I don't think so.  Ah, naturopathy's reversal of values continues...
