A page you started (Jennifer Gunter) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Jennifer Gunter, Robincantin!

Wikipedia editor Nick Moyes just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

I've tagged the Talk page for WP:BLP, and a check of references currently suggests this article conforms very well to Wikipedia requirements for living people. You could do with adding more categories linking to women's health issues - perhaps one of the sub-cats under Category:Reproductive rights, or equivalent, might help. You could also consider looking under Category:Alternative medicine, though I couldn't find one best suited to debunkers of alternative medicine. (not my field of knowledge, I'm afraid)

To reply, leave a comment on Nick Moyes's talk page.

You're welcome- keep up the good work! Nick Moyes (talk) 21:31, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
I removed some of the advocacy, both here and in the article on Timothy Caulfield. WP articles provides accurate information on health issues, emphasising the scientific perspective, but they do not advocate for them. A plain factual presentation without highlighted quotes or repetition best gives the readers the information. DGG ( talk ) 10:14, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you DGG, I think those are helpful changes. These were pretty much the first pages I wrote, the style was a little off. Are you comfortable removing the "news release" tag from the Caulfield article at this point? Robincantin (talk) 15:51, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
There is still a lot of promotionalism there. One of the ways I define promotionalism is that promotional writing is what the subject would like readers to know about himself, in contrast to encyclopedic writing, which is what a general reader might want to know. A key example in the current text is anecdotes. They're good anecdotes, and express views that we both probably wholeheartedly agree with. You're obviously a trained writer, and use them effectively, better than I could, and the entire article with them included would be perfect--for some other place.
I find it harder to write objectively about things I like, than those I do not; I therefore prefer to deal with things of importance, in fields where I know something but which I do not greatly care about specifically, or to make the sort of copyedits that would improve any article.

Description of the Correactology correction[edit]

You say snapping of the fingers??? This is very inaccurate. The practitioner places his hand on a specific area of the body and proceeds to apply a corrective momentum as to stimulate the receptors of the skin. This in return causes a cascade of events which ultimately changes the behaviour of the body’s proteins. This mechanisms viability is often proven during Bruce Lipton’s lectures eg. Biology of belief. Nowhere on the informational website does it mention snapping of the fingers. I am a patient and I thought that this needed to be addressed. Otherwise, good work. Thank you.

Hello, Factualistmaxim! Thanks for the message. I was surprised by the finger-snapping, but it does come up in the conversation between the CBC reporter and the show host in the audio news report I used as one of the sources. Perhaps different practitioners use different techniques. I can only go with what reliable secondary sources (i.e. not the commercial website of the founders) tell us. I hope it will be possible to refine the article as more sources become available. Robincantin (talk) 22:46, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

A cupcake for you![edit]

Choco-Nut Bake with Meringue Top cropped.jpg Great improvements on 'barn fires' (article moved since)! I just reviewed the article and saw that you had an almost equal hand with the page creator in making the article what it is now, so, thank you for that and keep it up!
