Maine AANP NDs Are Against Water Fluoridation

here, a recent Facebook post by the Maine Association of Naturopathic Doctors (MAND) against a public health measure that is both safe and effective: 

001. at Facebook, MAND posted:

002. meanwhile, at the blog Science-Based Medicine, there's the post "Cochrane Review on Community Water Fluoridation" from 2015, by dentist Grant Ritchey,  which states:

"so until further research is in, you don’t have to attend anti-fluoride rallies or write a letter to your local newspaper calling for the cessation of community water fluoridation. It is still safe and effective, one of the best prevention values in health care.  Each dollar that is spent on fluoridation reduces dental costs many fold, not to mention untold pain, suffering, loss of teeth, and loss of productivity [...]";

and yet the naturopaths of Maine are against this "safe and effective" public health measure!

003. and at, there's such peculiarities as:
promotion of the therapeutic bogosity known as homeopathy;

promotion of the combined bogosities of "craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, biotherapeutic drainage, botanical medicine, homeopathy and hydrotherapy";

004. and the author of that antifluoridation post, ND Rau, has the page up "Naturopathic Philosophy" [also here] at her practice, which states: 

"the process of healing includes the generation of symptoms, which are expressions of the life force attempting to heal"; 

which is a science-ejected explanation, WHILE the MAND tells us that NDs are "well-versed in current medical science";
