"the force of human creativity and respectful relationships is the inherent healing force in nature [...] here my many interests converge [...] working with the life force to manifest vitality and intelligence, perception and compassion [...] in essence, I aim to apply the old homeopathic maxim of supporting the vital force and removing the obstacles to cure. Or, as the ancient Chinese adage goes'vanquish the evil qi. Support the righteous qi' [...] the integrative models and clinical philosophy of natural medicine are inherently inclined to be eclectic and dynamic, tailored to the vital force and response patterns of each patient as a whole being [...] more fundamentally, we see that applying the core principles of naturopathic medicine means that we need to look at how each agent, each procedure, each intervention serves the vital force [...] we are talking about an approach much closer to the naturopathic tradition [...] the person [...] the ways in which their vital force is expressing symptomatology, etc.";

These treatments are chosen to work with the patient's vital force, respecting the natural healing processes of nature [...] naturopathic philosophy serves as the basis for all naturopathic practice [...#3] illness has a purpose in the organism. The process of healing generates symptoms, which are an expression of the life force or vix mediatrix [sp., vis medicatrix], attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic actions should complement this process";

Each meridian corresponds to one specific organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. The proper flow of qi is thought to create health. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to TCM, everything in nature has both yin and yang. An imbalance of qi [...] results in disease [...] needles are inserted at points along the meridians to restore balance to the qi. Acupuncture points, or the specific locations where needles are inserted, are places where the energy pathway is close to the surface of the skin [...] Korean hand acupuncture: based on the principle that the hands and feet have concentrations of qi, and that applying acupuncture needles to these areas is effective for the entire body";

Your body is inherently able to intelligently heal itself, restore health, and ward off disease through its vital energy. Naturopathic doctors identify and remove obstacles and work with this internal ability to facilitate the healing process [...] forms of healing are used that encourage inherent healing abilities and do not harm or inhibit this process [...] by focusing on underlying causes [...] symptoms are an indication of imbalance and an expression by your body of its attempts to heal [...] naturopathy has much in common with the healing philosophies of oriental medicine / traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) [...] and acupuncture [...] additional techniques include acupressure, ayurveda (from India), Qi-Gong, yoga, and other therapies of Asian origin. The oriental concept of balancing the flow of ‘qi’ (pronounced ‘chi’), or life force, through meridian pathways is similar to the naturopathic philosophy of the inherent healing power of the body”;

"TCM acknowledges the presence of energy channels, meridians, in the the body. These meridians carry qi (a vital energy of the body and is pronounced chee) that is responsible for the actions of all our organ systems and bodily processes. The meridians are similar to the vascular system of the body that carries blood, only the qi and its meridians are much subtler [...] in a rudimentary sense, we move qi throughout the organ systems and it is the smooth movement of qi that allows health and balance to occur in the body. When qi becomes stagnated we see pathology arise. Depending on where the qi stagnates will depend on the pathologies we see. Our emotions, outburst of anger, poor digestion, anxiety, and physical pain, are all related to qi and its movement in the body. Through acupuncture we facilitate the movement of qi and thus the harmony and health of the body";

The practice of homeopathy convinces the physician to regard the body as more than a sum of its parts. Unlike a machine, it develops, carries on its function and repairs itself independently. In this sense, everyone carries within him his own doctor. Ancient physicians were familiar with this natural power of the organism to control disease and they invented for it a beautiful expression. 'Vis medicatrix naturae' ([the] healing power of nature). This healing power is a function of the life force itself. Hahnemann called it the vital force. Disease is a disturbance of this force [...] homeopathic medicine aims to correct the disturbed vital force and thus enhances the power of the body to heal itself. It does not aim at removing the symptoms of the parts affected, but treats the cause and restores health. According to Homoeopathy, symptoms are a reflection of me disturbed vital force”;

These channels are called meridians. Qi flowing smoothly through the meridians results in health [p.201…] the main branches of Chinese medicine are acupuncture, herbal medicine, qi gong, tai chi, reiki therapy, and massage. All have the same goal: to improve the balance and flow of energy […] acupuncture involves the use of extremely fine stainless-steel needles inserted into points along the meridians to direct the flow of energy [p.204…] qi gong. The term qi gong means ‘energy cultivation’ […] tai chi […] over time one learns to sense and regulate the flow of chi energy [p.209…] reiki therapy […] the basic concept behind reiki, as in other forms of traditional Asian medicine, is that the body has an energy field that is central to health and proper functioning and that this energy field travels in certain pathways that can become blocked or weakened [p.210…] reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy healing using the hands [p.212]”;

"as simple as it may sound, to be oneself is the healthiest way one can choose to be. Not to be is the choice, therefore, that goes against or denies us from being ourselves, our true nature. That is the choice that leads to illness. It doesn’t simply lead to illness of the mind and emotions, but also of the physical body. Yes, choices not to be can lead to disease in the body after long periods of time, from denying ourselves from being who we are. In simple terms, the way this happens is that the universal life force, called chi, prana, or orgone, from different sciences and cosmologies, becomes blocked when we choose not to be. Imagine the soul as a bright flame. The very statement of the soul is 'I AM.'  When we choose not to be what our soul truly is, we become misaligned with that bright flame and parts of ourselves fall into darkness. It is like by choosing not to be who we are, we are declaring a stoppage or a blockage to the flow of life itself. As a result, the chi, prana, orgone cannot flow into the parts of ourselves that are normally supplied by this universal life force that emanates from the soul. This is the essence of what leads to illness. The illness, in all its symptoms and effects on the body, manifests there as a result of the blockage in our life force";
