NDs Gain Mass. Licensure: Onward Marches Self-Policing Deviance

here, I quote from the conclusion of the Naturocrit Podcast's Episode 012:

001. from the script:

"Naturopathy's Unethical Code of Misconduct:

Now, for a long time, I have been watching naturopathy from near and far, obviously.
And I can summarize the behaviors that the schools inculcate, minimally and simply as:
#1. Lie.  Lie to yourself first and foremost, and then lie about naturopathy in order to get patients in the door and to grow naturopathy, and then lie to yourself that you are lying to yourself;
#2 Pretend.  Pretend that what constitutes science as an understanding of reality is arbitrary and mainly an exercise of ink to paper;
#3 Mimic.  Mimic modern medicine, science and academia but don't let your marks get too close because they may see the ruse.  When they do, pretend they don't and lie;
#4 Cling.  Overall, cling to the narrow, egotistical, outdated and irrational premises of naturopathy at all cost, like a gosling that just hatched imprinting upon the first moving entity it encounters.

Gaming the System:

And finally, let's talk about gaming the system, aka licensed falsehood.
This is actually a simple formula.
First, by way of naturopathy's unethical code of misconduct, get your schools established, get a gullible lawmaker to sponsor your naturopathy bill, and get all your commerce going.
Second, self-accredit by stocking your self-designed specialty accreditor with your own 'experts' who demand deference from general accreditors, populate your naturopathy licensure board with naturopaths who demand that only naturopaths can judge naturopaths, and ignore basic and professional commerce ethics.
Third, publish in the medical literature in places that don't really care to look deep enough to understand your unethical code of misconduct, therein polluting the medical literature with junk propaganda, places that can hold their noses shut quite firmly as they nervously look at your commercial, ethical, and epistemic transgressions.
Indulge Me:
Let me repeat a part of my general introduction:

In previous episodes of this series, I established that naturopathy is, essentially, a kind of knowledge blending, misrepresentation, and irrationality.

I have termed naturopathy both 'an epistemic conflation falsely posing itself as an epistemic delineation' and 'the naturopathillogical':

the science-exterior is mixed with what is scientific, and then that whole muddle is absurdly claimed to be science as an entire category, while particular sectarian science-ejected oath-obligations and -requirements are coded or camouflaged, therein effectively disguising naturopathy's system of beliefs in public view.

Naturopathy's ultimate achievement is a profound erosion of scientific integrity and freedom of belief packaged in the marketing veneers "natural, holistic, integrative and alternative" and improperly embedded in the academic category "science".
And licensed falsehood marches on.
