“homeopathic remedies may also be recommended. They are made from specific dilutions of plant, animal and mineral substances. When carefully matched to the patient they are able to affect the body's ‘vital force’ and to stimulate the body's innate healing forces on both the physical and emotional levels, with few side effects”;

"Hahnemann [...] says, 'the diseased vital force endeavors' [etc....] Hahnemann defines in a long footnote to paragraph 11 the term 'dynamic influence,' which begins as follows: 'when man falls ill it is at first only the self-sustaining spirit-like vital force (vital principle) everywhere present in the organism which is untuned by the dynamic influence of the hostile disease agent.' He defines this 'dynamic influence' as an 'invisible' and 'nonmaterial spirit-like force' to which he ascribes the transmission of miasms similar to the way 'the magnet communicates magnetic force to the needle'";

These tools provide the building blocks to stimulate the vital force / healing energy in the body [...] acupuncture - using traditional Chinese medicine which is based on the concept of qi which circulates in the body through meridians which act as highways to carry the energy. Acupuncture needles are inserted into points along the meridians to stimulate the qi (energy) of the body. Each point has a predictable effect on the qi that is moving through it. The points chosen by the practitioner are based on symptom picture as well as pulse and tongue diagnosis";

"acupuncture is a therapeutic tool used to activate the body's ability to heal itself. By inserting hair-fine needles into the body at specific points, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can use acupuncture to energize the body's meridians or energy pathways. While they cannot be seen directly, meridians carry energy (or qi) throughout the entire body, just as our blood vessels carry blood and oxygen, and our nervous pathways carry electrical impulses. Acupuncture points along these meridians work on many different levels and can strengthen organ systems, invigorate blood vessels, stimulate nervous tissues, and awaken spiritual consciousness all at the same time";

"in the good old days, naturopaths could simply stimulate the vital force and rely on nature to sort things out. Today, as we immerse ourselves in this new world of complex interventional biochemistry, we can still model our protocols so they mirror the natural processes invoked by the vital force, or at least we can try to. Once we step beyond the simple elements of our tradition, seemingly simple interventional therapies force the practitioner to make decisions we wish might be better left to the vital force. Even something as simple and as useful as NAC opens up a Pandora's Box";

The vis medicatrix naturae, or vis, is one of the fundamental principles that guides and distinguishes the practice of naturopathic medicine. The vis is the belief that every living being contains a 'life force'. When this force is given proper building blocks and freed from obstacles, each being will come to a state of ideal health and balance [...] it is the highest goal of each naturopathic doctor to find this balance";
