Changelog 2017-08-08 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!]

002. video link and commentary:

002.a. there's ND Drennen of "Naturopathy Toronto Naturopathic Doctors at Pacific Wellness" (2017) [saved 2017-08-06] which states:

[tags: #naturopathy #NDDrennen #homeopathy #detox #PCP]
"[from the description] Naturopath & Naturopathic Doctor Toronto at Pacific Wellness:
 http://www.pacificwellness.ca/naturopathic-services.html [...] naturopathic medicine can be used to treat, manage or prevent a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions. Call 416-929-6958 [...from the video] what is naturopathic medicine? [...] a holistic approach to health care [...] naturopathic doctors are general practitioners of natural medicine [...and use] clinical nutrition, botanical / herbal medicine, Asian medicine, homeopathy [...and they speak of treating] diabetes [...] candida overgrowth [...] allergies [...] improve your immune system [...] improve digestive function [...] effective detox program [...] safe and effective detox [...] laboratory testing [...]";

so, typical naturo. woo and promises promises.

002.b. the ND listed there is "Bianca Drennan, BSc, ND Naturopathic Doctor BSc in Nutritional Sciences" and her bio. states she's a CCNM graduate.

002.c. her very large naturopathy page [2017 archived] at the practice, which has the above video embedded in it, states:

"naturopathic medicine can be used to treat, manage or prevent a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions. The following is only a small sample of how Toronto naturopathic doctors can help you: lower high blood pressure and cholesterol, relieve or reduce the symptoms of PMS and hormonal imbalances, detoxify toxins from your body, improve conditions for pregnancy, prevent or manage cancer Manage diabetes and blood sugar, plan or fine tune your fitness or diet regime, reduce the Candida overgrowth, manage menopause related symptoms, reduce or eliminate allergies, naturally treat skin conditions [...] stress management, help deal with depression and anxiety, improve your immune system, improve digestive function, manage autoimmune disease [...]";

notice the Toxin Boogeyman and the Candida Boogeyman on the list. And the WIDE treatement context.

"Dr. Bianca Drennan, BSc, ND [...] naturopathic doctor [and] BSc in nutritional sciences [...] Bianca followed her passion for diet and health to McGill University, where she graduated with a bachelor of science in nutritional sciences [...] Bianca moved her passion into a career by studying the relationship between what we eat and how our bodies perform through the lens of science [...]";

a science promise?  And then all the woo...

"Toronto naturopathic doctors are the general practitioners of natural medicine who deliver healthcare using the following naturopathic principles [...] help and use the body’s natural ability to heal itself [...] naturopathic treatments are based on age old traditions and modern science such as: clinical nutrition, botanical/herbal medicine, Asian medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine [...] lifestyle counseling [...] Pacific Wellness Detox Program Naturopathic Doctor Supervised Detox Program: our naturopathic doctor, Dr. Bianca Drennan is currently offering a 5 week whole body detoxification program at the Pacific Wellness Institute. The beginning of a new season is the perfect time to reset your body and help restore balance. During the 5 week program, Dr. Drennan will monitor you regularly to ensure a safe and effective detox [...]";

that's coded vitalism, because we don't deserve to KNOW, so we can then CHOOSE.  And blending of knowledge.  And woo.  And detox woo.

"what kind of training does a naturopathic doctor receive? [...] a licensed and registered ND has received at least 4 years of post-graduate training from an accredited naturopathic medical institution. Pre-admission requirements include three years of pre-medical studies at a university. Training includes basic, medical, and clinical science [...] graduates must pass rigorous board examinations to be eligible to practice as a doctor of naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic doctors in Ontario are regulated under the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) [...]";

except that "rigorous board examination" falsely labels homeopathy a "clinical science."  Which is therein regulated falsehood. 

"why does naturopathic treatment cost so much? At first glance, naturopathic treatment may seem much more expensive than current conventional medicine because it is not covered by OHIP. But in the long run naturopathic treatment can afford you a life with lower medication costs, fewer days affected by illness and pain and less dependence on a healthcare system [...]"; 

promises!  But imaginary things like toxins and candida overgrowths, and homeopathy efficacy, seem like a WASTE of money to me.

"naturopathic medicine is an investment into your health and long-term wellness. The primary focus is on prevention and achieving optimal health, in addition to treating the root cause of disease. A naturopathic visit is typically longer and more comprehensive than a typical visit with your MD [...] naturopathic medicine views each person as truly individual, and treatment will target the root cause of illness. All treatment decisions will be made based on clinical experience, leading research, and specific goals of the patient. This results in a comprehensive and individualized treatment protocol [...]";

and, of course, a postuer of 'better than regular medicine.'
