Changelog 2018-01-30 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!]

odds and ends:

there's the excellent belfasttelegraph.co.uk article
(2018-01-26) which in part states:

"got a touch of tonsillitis? Why not pay a therapeutic
visit to a witch? Eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of
bat and tongue of dog - into the cauldron they all go,
plus a bit of 'double, double, toil and trouble', and there
 you are, a potent hell-broth that'll soothe your sore
throat in no time. To be honest, you may as well consult
a witch about whatever ails you, rather than visit a
homeopath [...] because, despite the popularity of 
homeopathy treatments, they simply don't work
They're woo-woo stuff, a pseudo-scientific carry-over from 
another, less-enlightened era and they don't have the
active power to make you better [...] the inefficacy of 
homeopathic treatments has been demonstrated time 
and time again [...] you're just dosing yourself with  
hocus-pocus [...] the Royal College of Veterinary 
Surgeons recently stated that vets should only offer
treatments that are 'underpinned by a recognised
evidence base or sound scientific principles'. 
So that rules homeopathy out, which is fair enough,
 since it works on neither man nor beast. Edzard
Ernst has suggested the homeopathic remedies 
belong not in the pharmacy section but in the
confectionary aisle. It makes sense, because 
they're effectively nothing more than sugar pills [...]";
hear, hear. And remember, homeopathy is essential
to naturopathy, and is within, for instance, the supposed
"science" that I entail below at UB.

002. video link and commentary:

002.a. ah, an oldie but baddie, 7+ years of continuing UB video bullshit of 'health sciences subset naturopathy', ISYN but they do all over you, aka the 2010 uploaded video "University of Bridgeport Health Sciences Spotlight - Dr. David Brady" [saved 2018-01-24]:

[tags: #UB #sciencesubsetnaturopathy #NDBrady #assurance]

"[from the description] the University’s professionally accredited health sciences programs [...include] the College of Naturopathic Medicine [...] Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) [...a] state-of-the-art curricula [...with] the members of the faculty [...of] backgrounds in the biomedical and clinical sciences [....from the video] University of Bridgeport Health Sciences Center [...] my name's Dr. David Brady, I'm the vice-provost of the division of health sciences at the University of Bridgeport [...] we're not the typical health science division [...] we combine many standard or traditional health science programs [...] but we also have programs from the other side of the spectrum";

so there's the perpetual claim of 'UB subset science subset naturopathy.'  With the false assurance of "professionally accredited." To add emphasis, they state "state-of-the-art" and 'science, science, science'.  Occurring in commerce, first and foremost. Brady is both a chiropractor and UB-ND. I sat in classes there with him and he also was my instructor.   And that's quite an admission: "not the typical", because, as you can see, at UB, there's junk [see p.081] within that categorical science label that is science-ejected or -exterior.  Patently. And I'm still amazed at how many enablers are involved in this racket.

002.b. speaking of, the State of CT DPH warns us in the 2017 document "Report to the General Assembly A Report Based on the Committee on the Practice of Naturopathy
Convened Pursuant to Special Act 16-3" [2017 archived; they seem to have removed access to the live document]:

"the physician and APRN committee members unanimously assert that naturopaths do not have sufficient education and training at this time to safely prescribe the medications proposed [...] the rationale for this opinion was the lack of scientific foundation of the profession of naturopathy, and a lack of commitment to evidence-based therapy [...]"; 

so, there's just something really gross about these UB people, epistemically speaking, perpetually.  Just gross.

002.c. because Wikipedia, not co-opted by the naturo. nuts and the State of CT's enablers, warns us in its "Naturopathy" entry:

"naturopathy or naturopathic medicine is a form of alternative medicine that employs an array of pseudoscientific practices branded as 'natural', 'non-invasive', and as promoting 'self-healing'. The ideology and methods of naturopathy are based on vitalism and folk medicine, rather than evidence-based medicine [...] naturopaths and naturopathic doctors have repeatedly been accused of being charlatans and practicing quackery [...]';

hear, hear.

002.c. and there are emailed detox offers from ND Brady:

[tags: #detox #NDBrady #pseudotherapy #donotwasteyourmoneyonthis]

002.d. while, as Science-Based Pharmacy, Scott Gavura tells us, concernign detox, in "The Detox Delusion":

"it’s reasonable to conclude that any product with the words 'detox' or 'cleanse' is only going to be effective at cleansing your wallet of cash. If anyone suggests a detox or cleanse to you, you’d do well to ignore any other health advice they may offer."

so, piles upon piles of bullshit.  Perpetually, without sanction, with assistance.  Unbothered by it all, unbothered in terms of permissions...
