001. via [they've misspelled his name, apparently as 'Kelley' when it should be Kelly]:

002. the 2001 Bastyr ND's web pages are archived here; and here's his YouTube account;

[update 2017-04-10] 003. former-ND Hermes writes at in "Confirmed: Licensed Naturopathic Doctor Gave Lethal 'Turmeric' Injection" (2016-04-10):

"California licensed naturopathic doctor, Kim Kelly, gave an intravenous injection of a turmeric solution to Jade Erick, 30, that resulted in her death, the San Diego Medical Examiner confirmed. Erick was being treated for eczema, a benign skin condition [...] according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), curcumin for any medical condition is not supported by strong evidence [...] a recently published review of the clinical evidence and pharmacological prospects of curcumin in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, concluded, '[curcumin] has never been shown to be conclusively effective in a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial for any indication' [...] Erick’s death raises questions about the ability of the naturopathic profession to educate and train its graduates to evaluate medical research and practice evidence-based medicine [...]"; 

hear, hear.  Also, that there are real-world consequences to believing in magic, beans, unicorn tears, and flying carpets.
