"astrology is one of the oldest sciences known to mankind [...] the study of the influence that distant cosmic objects, usually stars and planets, have on human lives. The position of the sun, stars, moon and planets at the time of people's birth (not their conception) is said to shape their personality, affect their romantic relationships and predict their economic fortunes, among other divinations. The GOD Djanthi-Thoth introduced the science of astrology to mankind thousands of years ago [...] astrologia will examine the science of astrology in the way that it was meant to be taught [...] astrologia will examine the correct use of this ancient science in building wealth, increasing your magical power, and advancing your spiritual prowess";

"naturopathic medicine includes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, as well as the promotion of health. It weaves together healing traditions from around the world with modern scientific principles and technology [...] the BC Naturopathic Association stresses that while NDs are trained and examined in complementary therapies, they must acquire a science based education equivalent to traditional MDs [...] in Oregon, the government regulator for academic colleges stated that 'it would not be possible for an individual to pass all of the tests—which is necessary for licensure [as an ND]—without having a comprehensive foundation in the biological and biomedical sciences' [...] this underscores the shared knowledge amongst NDs and MDs. The solid grounding in biomedical sciences prepares NDs to know when a referral is required or when emergency intervention is necessary [...] medicine changes with the advent of new tests, procedures, medicines and scientific research [...] all medicine relies on science to inform and ensure efficacy of treatment [...] 'while most of my patients want alternatives to drug-based therapies, I am a science-based provider of health care services and I know when drugs are required,' Dr. Spooner said";

NPLEX Part 2 - in August 2007 the Core Clinical Science series examinations were combined into a single examination that  [...includes] homeopathy [...] note that homeopathy is no longer a Clinical Add-On exam and has been integrated into the Core Clinical Science exam";

The integrated examination will include homeopathy [...] a candidate who has not passed all examinations in the Part II - Core Clinical Science Series, or who has not passed the Homeopathy Add-On Examination prior to August 2007, will be required to take the entire Part II - Core Clinical Integrated Examination";

"demand for naturopathic medical services continues to rise as patients seek valid, science-based alternatives [...] naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care: the science [...] the approaches of naturopathic and allopathic physicians [...] both disciplines are guided by scientific, evidence-based approaches to treatment and intervention. In addition, both disciplines evolve with advances and changes in science and technology [...] academic requirements for NDs include at least four years of premedical education, followed by four years (4400 to 4600 hours) of naturopathic medical training and clinical sciences [...] graduates possess current pharmacotherapeutic knowledge and skills grounded in scientific research as well as in historical, clinical experience (as do medical graduates) [...] this report also concludes that naturopathic medicine diverges from allopathic medicine only 'at the point where professionals in common possession of scientific facts conscientiously disagree on how best to use their shared knowledge in treating patients' [...] patient care under an ND is primary health care, based on a shared scientific foundation and body of expertise, but with a different focus [...] 'a comprehensive foundation in the biological and medical sciences' [...] beginning in 2007, nine of the ten examinations, including the Core Clinical Sciences and homeopathy, will be integrated into a single examination, which must be passed in its entirety";
