Homeopathy and Science: Bastyr U. versus U. Alberta Health Law Institute

here, differing points of view on what survives scientific scrutiny:

001. from the YouTube account HLI Alberta, which is the Health Law Institute at the University of Alberta, there's the recent video "Seeking Asthma and Allergy Treatment From a Naturopath: A Wise Decision?" (2016-12-20)  wherein we're told:

"she might have come to a doctor like me to discuss safe and proven treatment options [...but] just last week Anne's friend Jason said that he went to see a naturopath [...] Anne went to see the naturopath [...who] prescribed some homeopathic remedies [...] the naturopath used scientifically unsupported testing methods to diagnose several food sensitivities that likely don't exist [...] and homeopathy, the most common treatment advertised by naturopath is literally water, it is the most scientifically treatment in all of alternative medicine [...] if you find yourself split, know what's science and what's bunk [...]";

ouch!!! Tue that.  Bravo.

002. and what's fascinating is that:

002a. the naturopath regulatory board of Alberta, the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta, on their page "Council Members", the CNDA list themselves as;

"President: Dr. Beverly Huang; Vice-President/Registrar: Dr. Stephanie Yaremko; Treasurer: Dr. Joe Klassen; Member-At-Large: Dr. Michael Mason-Wood; Member-At-Large: Dr. Christine Perkins; Member-At-Large: Dr. Christopher Schlee; Public Member: Maryanne Doherty; Public Member: Ralph Westwood."

so, "Dr."

002.b. what they don't indicate is that they're ALL NDs.  So NDs get to self-regulate.  And as I often say, "why would nonsense have a problem with itself?"

002. currently, at bastyrcenter.org, Bastyr University tells us in "How Naturopathic Medicine Can Help You":

"naturopathic medicine emphasizes [...] encouraging the body’s inherent healing ability [...] while firmly science-based, modern naturopathic medicine also preserves the century-old wisdom of successful natural therapies [...including] homeopathic remedies [...]";

so, when is the junk falsely termed science?  Naturopathy.
