“the basis[basic] philosophical premise of naturopathic medicine is that there is an inherent power in nature and in every human being. The physician’s role is to bring out or enhance this innate healing power within their patients. The healing power of nature is often called: the elan vital, the vital force or vis medicatrix naturae […] vis medicatrix naturae – or the healing power of nature – that is present in all living things […] the patient’s defense mechanism […] the body’s inherent defenses and self-regulatory mechanisms”;

vitalism. Homeopathy doctors view disease to arise from inherent or developed weaknesses in the patient’s defense mechanism, creating a susceptibility to morbid influences such as bacteria, viruses, environmental toxic factors and so on [...] homeopathy doctors practice a method of specific induction of non-specific resistance, which stimulates the body’s inherent defenses and self-regulatory mechanisms, rather than, by taking over a function of the body, initiating dependency on the medicine itself”;

Energy from these pathways surfaces at various points on the body, called acu-points. When qi flows freely, the body is healthy. When qi flow is impaired, disease ensues. Acupuncture is used to strengthen the flow of qi or remove blockages in the meridians through the use of tiny, sterile needles which are inserted just under the skin at specific acu-points. It is proven to be an effective, safe, non-invasive and complementary treatment method that can treat a variety of conditions and ailments, and is particularly successful at treating acute and chronic pain";

"the philosophy of naturopathic medicine is to stimulate the body to heal itself. The vital force, or that part of you that coordinates the way your body works as a whole, is very intelligent and will keep the body running in the most efficient manner possible with the materials with which it has to work [...] if you don’t address the cause of the symptom and just cover it up with medication, the vital force will find the next most efficient way for the body to run which may cause another, even more severe, symptom and eventually result in chronic disease [...] when the vital force’s chosen healing reaction is successfully suppressed usually a less effective reaction is produced causing even less desirable symptoms";

"the vital force is that part of us that gives our body life It is incredibly intelligent. The main job it has is to keep the body working in the most efficient manner. When this is happening we are healthy. When there is a problem with the body the vital force will adjust the body to work in the best possible way with the limitations it is given. This is where symptoms occur [...] when the removal of waste products is compromised the vital force will take action. This action is in the form of an acute condition [...] if you were living in this house with no way to dispose of trash you might decide to put all of it in a room separate from everything else. This will make for much more pleasant living. The vital force does something similar";

"the natural state of the human organism is health, homeostatic balance. In this state, the human organism has the innate ability - the vitality to word off diseases and heal itself. Vitalistic medicine maintains that when disease occurs, this self-healing ability has been blocked [...] naturopathic medicine recognizes and respects the inherent cower [sp., 'power'] of the human body to heal itself. The naturopath utilizes techniques that work gently in harmony with these self-healing capabilities and avoids those treatments that might cause new illness or complicate the existing disease process. Thus, naturopathic therapeutics aim to stimulate the body's natural homeostatic mechanism (balance) to restore a health structure and function";

"naturopathic doctors practice the following fundamental principles of naturopathic medicine [...#2] co-operate with the healing powers of nature [...] co-operate with the healing powers of nature: your body has the innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine, by definition, means cooperating with its ability and involves the use of natural therapies to support the body as it heals itself. We can also look to nature for clues that will assist us in supporting our natural healing abilities. If you have ever watched a cat eating its dinner, you might have observed that it never eats and drinks at the same time. Studies of humans suggest that drinking while eating can lead to digestive difficulties and decreased nutrient absorption – a simple lesson that could be learned by observing nature";

"acupuncture is a traditional medicine originating in ancient China over 2000 years ago.  It is used to balance the flow of energy through the meridian pathways (directional pathways of energy flow) through the body. Acupuncture is the technique of inserting very fine needles into particular points on the body in order to stimulate the flow of energy to specific organ systems. It is beneficial for many purposes including the reduction of stress and inflammation, as well as for the support of organs and cell tissues. Acupuncture focuses on balancing the energy (qi) of the body resulting in an overall feeling of wellness. Acupuncture is particularly effective in the treatment of: infertility, menstrual cramps and irregularities, back pain and sciatica, joint pain, headaches and migraines, anxiety, sports injuries, digestive disorders";
