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 SCNM video "The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine" [saved 2018-01-21], from the Vimeo account "Manfredi Productions" which describes itself as "Manfredi Productions offers video production services for Phoenix, Arizona and surrounding cities" -- which I assume means this is a local TV spot recently used or to be used by SCNM -- wherein we're told:
[tags: #SCNM #codedvitalism #fakeempowerment #belief].
"nature is our best insurance for living well and staying well, and observing the body's innate spark for healing [...] we're the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences [...] who believe in the simple truths of nature [...] doctors, teachers and believers [...] moving away from dependency and towards personal responsibility [...] simply inspiring [...see] scnm.edu";.
so, there's coded vitalism, the dog-whistle of "belief" and "truth" because I think they're sending that out to a certain religious-ideological sector that may be watching, and this idea of empowerment. But how empowering is opacity? Ridiculous...
002.b. at scnm.edu, we can decode that "body's innate spark for healing" with the PDF "2017-2018 Course Catalog" [2018 archived], which tells us:
"[p.030] "therapeutic order [...] stimulate the healing power of nature: use various systems of health such as botanicals, homeopathy, Chinese medicine, ayurvedic medicine, nutrition, and mind-body medicine; tonify weakened systems: use modalities to strengthen the immune system, decrease toxicity, normalize inflammatory function, optimize metabolic function, balance regulatory systems, enhance regeneration, and harmonize life force";
so, inherent is the ACTIVITY of stimulating a "life force" aka HPN that doesn't actually exist. Therein, like spiritual activities of religion and such, this is a belief system IN ACTION. That is historically known as sectarian medicine. And look at the homeopathy and medieval nonsense systems involved! Because ANYTHING GOES! NOT empowering, ridiculous..
