Naturopathic Medicine 'Blends', Conflates, 'Integrates', 'Combines'...

[this is very simple: look through a search engine at how naturopathy / naturopathic medicine claims to be science, science-based and scientific {the nonspiritual, nonvitalistic, non-science-discarded, non-science-refuted and kind} -- and -- that naturopathy contains the supernatural, the science-discarded, and the unscienceable {spirit, vitalism and kind}!!! -- the irrationality!!! of 'we are this specific knowledge type...we are all knowledge types'...]
.
[so, naturopathy is all about BLENDING, BLENDING, BLENDING...
and equating / melding knowledge type -- overall, the unlimitation of scientific type, creating pseudoscience -- because they state the blend of the supernatural / not-science-supportable or -testable / and the scientific is still science / science-based / scientific medicine; 'science unlimited' to the point wherein the footprint of science gets so big, ANYTHING stated in the language of science -- particularly those naturopathic grounding tenets -- are decreed by naturo. as science-based, scientific, science etc. -- when not. Like VFS. Thus, the scientific for them is the same as the 'centuries old'; science is 'natural health sciences that integrate body, mind, spirit and nature'; ayurveda is a 'natural science' when it's really the world religion of Hinduism; overarching: the a priori - a posteriori wall is demolished, and each type fuses with the other and is therein indiscernible from the other - in a sort of 'all ideas are equal' 'no ideas are individual' amalgam -- as if knowledge type results solely from language selection and RESEMBLANCE, as opposed to authenticity and reason; as if science isn't a method (science is DONE, in a worldly kind of way) and is merely a lexicon (science is a mentalistic or rationalistic, worldless representation of what pleases you)].
