Changelog 2017-10-10 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!]

001. added:

at thechronicaleherald.ca,
there's an article by ND MacLeod
"Studes: Cup of Coffee or Two
in a Day Could Help You Live Longer"
"it's always interesting when naturopathy invokes
'science' and research...yet when you look at what
 is essentially naturopathic, science and
research say 'nut-ah.' -r.c."

at latimes.com, there's the Opinion page
"The Naturocrit Podcast and Blog: As a supporter of
scientific skepticism, I'm quite in agreement with the
latter opinion e.g. 'giving any credence to homeopathy
and naturopathy in medical school is akin to adding alchemy
and astrology to chemistry and astronomy programs.'
As for the former opinion e.g. 'the placebo effect, 
in which a group of clinical trial subjects who receive an
inactive treatment experiences a benefit close to that
experienced by the group receiving the active treatment',
well:if placebo equals experimental group then that treatment
is NOT active. Duh. Sorry to sound curt, but there is QUITE
a difference between placebo nonspecific effects and the
effects of a therapy that is, well, effective. -r.c."

at sciencblogs.com, there's Orac's
Orac Responds" (2017-09-29):
"also, which may be quite telling, is the fact that Mr. Weeks
was the AANP's first 'Exective Director', and that may fit well
 with the observations above regarding what I often term a 
'reversal of values.'After all, it is naturopathy by way of the AANP
 that still quite falsely terms homeopathy a 'medicinal science.'
So if you like physics and vectors, if 'science' is the actual value, 
what we have in Mr. Weeks is deviation and indistinction:
'-science'. -r.c."

002. video link and commentary:

ND Reebs, an NUNM ND graduate, has up the YouTube video "Three Advantages of Naturopathic Medicine" (2017)[saved 2017-09-14] which states:

"hi, I'm Dr. Ben Reebs a naturopathic doctor and the educated vitalist and I'm here today to talk about three advantages of naturopathic medicine [...] the first advantage is something known as the vital force or the vis medicatrix naturae [...] there's an innate healing mechanism in the body that can be awakened and simulated [...] what Obi Wan Kenobi meant when he said 'may the vital force be with you Luke' [...] the conventional version of the vital force is something we call homeostasis [...] a regulatory mechanism in the body that keeps things in balance in the body.  And according to naturopaths, there's a vital force, which is an energetic force in the body that's always working to restore normal structure and function in the body [...which is] treating the underlying cause of disease";

ah, that contradiction-in-terms: educated vitalist.  You don't hear of 'educated science-ejected supporters', but that's what is truly being communicated.  And OWK did not say "vital force", which is not the scientific concept of homeostasis.
