Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM)

I have heard on several occasions that the practice of naturopathy should be respected because licensed naturopaths have to go to school for many years. Unfortunately a large chunk of what is learned in naturopathy school is a load of bull. What does the CCNM teach about vaccines? I investigated.

A quick plug into their website indicates that the school propagates vaccine fears. I put "vaccin*" into the "find materials" search bar of the Learning Resource Centre of the CCNM website and returned this: http://lrc.ccnm.edu/polaris/search/searchresults.aspx?ctx=3.1033.0.0.1&type=Keyword&term=vaccin*&by=KW&sort=RELEVANCE&limit=TOM=*&query=&page=0&searchid=4

That alone makes it obvious that the school supports and spreads vaccine misinformation, but is there more? Yes. Where to begin? Saveria (Rena) A. Zambri has been a clinic supervisor at the campus out-patient Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic since 1997. She specializes in "...pediatrics including perinatal health, well-child check-ups, homeopathic prophylaxis (as a choice for/with convential vaccinations)...". http://www.ccnmihc.ca/practitioners/saveria_zambri

The Robert Schad Clinic info online includes a pediatrics tab. It states: "We provide....[e]ducation and counselling around vaccination decisions". A clinic supervised by a person that believes in the power of homeopathic immunization is providing vaccination counselling to parents. http://www.ccnm.edu/pediatrics

More to come on the CCNM and vaccination.
