Changelog 2016-12-09 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!]

"Proposed Pa. Law Would

"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: Training and accreditation
do not guarantee fundamental soundness: the newly required
licensing exam falsely labels homeopathy 'science', for instance.
What has the State of Pennsylvania got into bed with?
Pseudoscience and such.  Doesn't sound like public protection
 to me.  And so there's more to naturopathy than merely the
marketing patina of 'preventative care.'  Much more, and it
leaves you wondering: why is so much nonsense tolerated? -r.c.",
Be Exploited By The Supplement Industry"

"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: What I find
more basically amusing is this fact: naturopathy
claims that a vital force spirit runs physiolog
purposefully.  Now, placing, as ND Lynch does,
so much emphasis on a physiochemical basis of life,
by way of his positioning of genetics as so useful and
important, actually belies that naturopathic central
vitalistic-spiritistic-teleological belief.  If life in structure
and function is causally due to one’s genetic inheritance,
and environment, it makes naturopathy’s vital force spirit 
claim irrelevant.  That’s what fascinates me about
naturopathy, the irrational muddle that it all is.  
Naturopaths want to be simultaneously two things,
at least: science, with all its causalistic determinism
and physiochemical basis for life, in order to actually
be ‘in this world’, and yet also vitalistic and supernaturalistic,
so it can float away into ‘otherworldly New Ageisms’.
These are mutually exclusive positions, yet naturopathy
calls both science. Guess which part isn’t science?!?!?! -r.c."

odds and ends:

republished Appendix I.07.01.;

002. video link and commentary:

002.a. Casey, B. (ND NCNM) (2016 archived) states in "Dr. Bridget Casey in 60 Secs" (2016-11; saved 2016-12-04):
"[from the video] I am a naturopathic doctor [...] I practice family medicine [...] we're looking at the whole person [...and] trying to look at the underlying issues [...] a dectective in that sense [...] I'll treat with things like [...] homeopathy [...]";

homeopathy, aka pseudopharmacy, because that's SO naturopathic. Let's go to her practice!

002.b. her bio. tells us:

"I have additional training and certification in applied kinesiology (AK) from the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK)";

a pseudodiagnostic, because that's also SO naturopathic!
