OICC Naturopathic Integrative Oncology: Paying Attention Only to the Science That's Liked

here, my comments upon a recent Facebook post by the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Center [OICC]:

001. the Facebook OICC post goes like this:

that's "new research".  But, if such RESEARCH was consistent across this integrative oncology...

002. you would destroy the so much of its contents with science.  For instance, the OICC states:

the clinical staff includes, ISYN, a reflexologist and a reiki practitioner, along with naturopathy and acupuncture';

while, in "Naturopathic Medicine" we're told:

"as a clinician scientist [...] as founder and executive director of the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Center (OICC), Dugald is pioneering a contemporary cancer treatment model based on scientifically grounded, evidence-informed complementary medicine." 

science, science, science.  Yet, the essentially naturopathic, like homeopathy, is hugely science-exterior.  Like reiki and reflexology.  They're not posting THAT on Facebook.  The victimization of the ill goes on...
