“naturopathic medical doctors are licensed, primary care physicians. Naturopathic medical doctors specialize in fields such as cardiology, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology. Naturopathic medicine philosophically recognizes that biological processes flow from a vital life force that transcends physical and chemical forces. Treatment is thus rendered with the understanding that people are far more than complex physical machines";

"there are basically two ways of looking at the world [I think there probably are more]. One philosophy acknowledges mainly physical laws. Adherants[sp.] to this philosophy look at a living thing and ask what physical, chemical or mechanical forces brought that organization about […this is] mechanism […and] physical medicine […per] existing within this physical world […] 'mechanism' is the theory that the phenomena of life are predicated upon the identical physical and chemical laws operating in the inorganic world […versus] 'vitalism,' [which] holds that biological actions are due to a vital energy or principle distinct from physical or chemical forces […this] philosophy views energy, or intelligence, as the hidden hand behind physical manifestations. Adherants[sp.] to this philosophy do not discount physical laws, but they prefer to look at a living thing and ask what intelligent, organizing energy manifested what is now being observed physically […this is] vitalism […per] an energetic and spiritual side to ourselves […and supposedly] nature is full of amazing and wonderful living medicines that augment and stimulate our own energetic intelligences to bring about health and order […since supposedly] every chemical reaction and physical process in the body, every interaction with others, every seemingly exclusive physical process anywhere, is on its most fundamental level, an energetic interaction […] the order[ly] and intelligent, purposeful oneness of the universe, the larger intelligent purposes of homeostasis, self-organization, self-preservation, instinct, physical sustenance, mental and spiritual reasoning and other purposeful qualities of life are accomplished […] what is directing all of this intelligent interaction? The energies themselves. They are intelligent and self-organizing, manifesting themselves in the material realm. These intelligent energies are the very essence of an intricate multitude we call 'nature’ […] the vitalist […] recognizes genes and genetic sequences as matter […but] they follow energy. They are not the code. They are the physical manifestation of the real code; the underlying energetic intelligence, so that the codifying combination of energy and matter in living systems could more accurately be termed the field of energenetics [!...] from an energetic standpoint, a diseased state is cured only inasmuch as the underlying energy of disease is perfectly counterbalanced and re-ordered; only thus is it no longer in a state of dis-ease […] healing is nothing more than the balancing and ordering of energies. Bacteria, viruses, fungi; each are only the physical manifestation of unique, singular energetic patterns, and when introduced to intelligent systems present to that system a new code to be cracked - to be balanced and thus cured. Healing cure is the neutralization of disturbing patterns of energy. The original energy of the disease and it's balancing counterpart, once introduced, is always present, though may not always remain in balance; the offending energy held in check by the vital, intelligent forces of the individual. This is the memory of energetic organization […] 'genetic' diseased conditions are not 'genetic.' They are energetic. Energy produces matter in the form of genes which mimic underlying energetic patterns. Genetic code is a material reflection of underlying energetic patterns and a narrow subdivision of total inherited memories […] the miraculous natural capacity of the body to heal when exposed to the appropriate living, ordering, energetic influences of nature, all of which have these qualities because they stem from the ultimate ordering influence of the source of all life […] a vitalistic physician […per] mental, emotional and spiritual. He or she knows that mental, emotional, spiritual and physical are in fact one; varying expressions of the same thing, and cannot be separated […] to stimulate health […] the innate healing capacity of the body […] naturopathic medicine recognizes that biological processes flow from a vital life force that transcends physical and chemical forces. Treatment is rendered with the understanding that people are far more than complex physical machines";

Vitalism essentially refers to vital energy, which is a force that guides our bodily processes, such as reproduction, growth and metabolism. A naturopathic physician seeks to find solutions that are minimally invasive yet support optimum health and vitality";

"in naturopathic philosophy, this state of coherence is synonymous with the 'vis medicatrix naturae,' or healing power of nature. It recognizes that there is an innate life force, a creative energy that animates every atom in existence. When we consciously bring ourselves to a state of coherence, we open up the flow of this life force energy and allow it to have an organizing effect in our lives [...] this makes it of utmost importance, then, that we remember how to be in an unpredictable experience and still maintain awareness of our connection to life-force energy [...] can we maintain awareness of our connection to prana and life-force energy?";

"homeopathics: you can safely use any dosage as long as it is appropriate, from 3X to 10M. However I often choose 6C, 12C, or 30C for acute situations. With these, you can dose frequently, anywhere from once every 15 minutes for sudden and high fevers, to TID-QID for acute upper respiratory infections. I tend to see the most aggravation from 200C, so I use either 30C or 1M for constitutional remedies. As most kids have a strong vital force, you can dose more frequently than you might an adult";

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, who rediscovered the principle of 'like cures like' applied this principle to his homeopathic remedies to stimulate the vital force to fight illness […] during a homeopathic consultation, patients' symptoms are a reliable guide to the remedy needed to activate the self-healing power of their vital energy.
