Changelog 2017-08-18 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 the very short video "The Association of Naturopathic Practitioners" which only presents the org.'s logo

002.b. so let's go to!

002.b1. where we find naturopathy's essential vitalism, in full regalia in "What is Naturopathy?" [2017 archived], as they state:

"the naturopathic principles are: [#1] the healing power of nature: the body can heal itself, given the right condition / treatment. There is a ‘vital force’ which is stimulated to promote health [...]";

so, vitalism as HPN.  Simple.

002.b2. and, of course, a claim of science-is-anything upon that in "Naturopathy is Something to Celebrate" [2017 archived], as they state:

"naturopaths are a fast growing population. There aren’t many branches of medicine that can claim to have a history of over two and a half millennia. Naturopathy can trace its origins back to Hippocrates who took the view that a person’s health was not simply a set of symptoms but a product of personality, well-being, environment and way of life. Twenty five centuries ago we were all much more connected with the environment around us and the distinctions between medicine, metaphysics and science were much more fluid [...]";

ah, that epistemic and ontologic conflation at the heart of naturopathy.  Simplicity, truly.  Archaic simplicity.  The good old days.  Medicine can trace its roots back to Hippocrates, except it progressed from "vital force" to scientific rigor.  Proof: that 002.b.1. page has the term "iridology" on it at least five times. The "naturopathic diagnostics" pseudodiagnostic list there is, in full:

  "traditional Chinese medicine (pulse, face, tongue); reflex zones of the body (Feet, hands, ear, back); iridology; kinesiology testing and bio resonance
