Rhode Island AANP Affiliate's Science Subset BUNKUM: Falsehood Immediately Post Licensure

here, now self-regulating, we see the utter nonsense of RI naturopathy in action:

001. up at providencejournal.com, there's "Health Matters: Week of Dec. 3" (2017-12-02)  which states:

"Rhode Island Association of Naturopathic Physicians fundraiser, Flatbread Co., 161 Cushing St., Providence. Tuesday, Dec. 5, 5 to 9 p.m. The RIANP will receive a donated percentage of every pizza ordered in-house, or for takeout or home delivery. Additionally, the RIANP will host a raffle with health-related prizes, including Bowen bodywork sessions, a homeopathic consultation and a Shiatsu massage [...] go to RIANP.org to learn more about the specific raffle prizes. To purchase raffle tickets before the event, email RInaturopaths@gmail.com or contact a naturopathic doctor. Raffle ticket prices are one ticket for $1, six tickets for $5, 14 tickets for $10 and 30 tickets for $20." 

so that's naturopathy subset homeopathy and Bowen.  Homeopathy is fake, and Bowen is considered a nebulous technique not known to help anything medically speaking.  It's like creating and selling widgets: each one is WHAT exactly?

002. meanwhile, at RIANP, where they asked us to go to, there's this claim:

002.a. in "Naturopathic Medicine" [2017 archived]:

"naturopathic medicine is a scientifically proven and tested system of (successful) health care."

my arse.  Science subset set homeopathy is an utter falsehood.  Baked into the ND licensure exam, even according to RIANP.  A pseudotherapy RIANP calls "powerful" affecting the "vital force."
