"homeopathy was developed by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800’s. He examined the potential of substances to ‘cure’ symptoms that he produced in human healthy subjects (Hahnemann, 1842). These examinations were called provings. Hahnemann thought the body to be intelligent with an innate ability to heal itself. For example, the healing of a cut- and that the best way to heal would be via supporting the vital force of the body [...] the chosen medicine has the potential in high doses to create similar behavior patterns as the determined key elements of the case but in low homeopathic prescription doses has the potential to balance the human vital energy that has somehow become mis-tuned. Low dose medicines are made by careful dilutions and succussions and attempt to ‘capture’ the energy of the substance being diluted [...] how does it work exactly? This isn’t known. Homeopathic medicine works by a mechanism of action that is said to tune the patient’s vital force witch has become mis-tuned as a result of disease [...] homeopathic medicine is proposed to correct the vital force as part of the mechanism of action";

Therapeutic actions should be complementary to and synergistic with this healing process.

"botanical medicine is a powerful therapy that often does not produce the unwanted side effects of prescription drugs. It is believed this occurs because of the natural balance of constituents in plants that provide stimulation of healing without a unidirectional, mechanistic effect. The 'vital force,' recognized by Eastern cultures as chi, prana, and life force maintains bodily functions, balance or homeostasis. The results of this vital force are balance of blood pressure, blood sugar, hormonal balance and others. Botanical medicines help to stimulate the vital force of the body, guiding it to restore balance to these bodily functions";

"the interaction of the body, mind and spirit functions within the matrix of very complex equations that govern the optimal practice of naturopathic medicine. Naturopathy attempts to both discover the nature of the equations (the vis) and amplify the positive effects of the aspects of the equation. Amplifying the positive is the same as increasing the vitality of the aspect of the equation [...] thank you  [...] for creating this conference this is a very exciting opportunity [...] I’ve never given a lecture before on the healing power of nature [...] the vis medicatrix naturae [...] what is the vis? [...] I’ll talk about how I think you could change this definition of the vis based on the three different models I’m going to show you [p.041...] our fundamental belief in what the universe was about [...] I want to talk to you about the Foundation of Naturopathic Medicine project [...that] started as a chapter in Mark Miccozzi's book on alternative medicine. I wrote a chapter for it a couple times on 'what is naturopathic medicine' and I’ve done this for a bunch of books [...] I decided for one of the updates [...] to invite my friend Dr. Pamela Snyder [an ND...] then after that we were approached by Elsevier, who said 'why don’t you convert this chapter into a whole textbook' [...] of course Elsevier wanted to do that with me [...] I’m a senior author of a book called the Textbook of Natural Medicine [...] one of the most well received books on science based natural medicine and it made them a lot of money [...the FNMP will be the] definitive text book about naturopathic medicine [...]  most of it is 'what is the vis?' What is the healing power of nature? [...] the vis [...] 'what is the vis medicatrix naturae?' [p.042...] Lindlahr, one of the early teachers and developers of the profession, defines the vis as 'the power possessed by the human body of resisting disease and restoring health. The primary force of all forces covered from the great central source of all life and expression of divine intelligence' [...] I don’t think our perspective has actually changed all that much in these last one hundred years almost. Jared Zeff and Pam Snyder in 1989 developed an official position for the American Association for Naturopathic Physicians and they said [...] 'the healing power of nature is inherent, self-organizing and healing process of living systems which establishes, maintains and restores health. Naturopathic medicine recognizes this healing process to be ordered and intelligent. It is a naturopathic physician's role to support, facilitate and augment this process' [...] this fundamental concept that the body has tremendous ability to heal [...] Leanna Standish simplified it quite a bit and said in 1989 'vis medicatrix naturae (or VMN) equals the inherent organizing principle of living organisms' [...] Eric Yarnell [...says] 'the vis is the result of natural selection and evolution' [p.043...] 'the VMN functions in  any given living system as a tendency to organize that system so as to maintain existence. The vis is universal  [...] the vis exists universally and is a cosmological reality [...] the vis exists internally and universally [...] an equation that exists  [...] as a law of nature. In the same way, the healing power of nature exists as an eternal law of nature the vis is the equation itself' [...] 'the vis is the framework in which vitality has significance. Vitality has no inherent value unless it can be integrated into the equation of the vis' [...] 'the vis is the law defining the laws and rules and interactions of the aspects of all systems including the body, the mind and we may call the spirit' [p.044...] the vis is the flow chart itself [...] 'the interaction of the body, mind and spirit' [p.045...] we can see the vis in others [...] if it decreases, the you’re only palliating symptoms and suppressing the individual’s expression of the vis [...] the vis, this vitality, this healthiness is simply an indication of organ function [...] the vis medicatrix is always pushing people towards higher vitality [p.046...] life is not logical in a universe ruled by entropy. If everything is going to waste heat, why do we have life evolving? It doesn’t make sense. Something is causing energy/matter to improbably organize into life. So, I’m making the assertion that vis is the life force, it is the consciousness of the universe manifesting as life [p.048...] vis is the manifestation of the universal consciousness in biological form [...] vis as our vitality [...] vis itself is immutable. As we harmonize with the vis our consciousness expands [p.050]";

"[ch.17] 0ne of the reasons fasting, particularly in chronic diseases, has never found much favor with orthodox physicians is that it depends on an intelligence in the body that most of them are not prepared to accept. This intelligence, which homeopaths and naturopaths call the vital force and which has been called innate by chiropractors, must be accepted as fact for an adequate understanding of fasting [...] there is, he says, within the body a force at work, constantly striving to preserve and strengthen our being. This force attempts to control the various mechanisms and chemical reactions of the body in such a way that life is perpetuated and the organism functions in the most efficient manner under the circumstances it finds itself in [...] when this inner vital force does not heal, the natural physician reasons that it must be impeded by adverse circumstances and it is the physician's duty to discover the reasons for this failure and to correct them so that the vital force can continue its healing ways [...] to fulfill these four specific needs of the vital force, the natural physician first attempts to discover any deficiencies that may exist within the patient's system. Then, by the selection and administration of proper foods, and if necessary specific nutritional substances, he supplies the body with the needed materials the vital force requires to establish normal functioning and overcome the ailment [...] if necessary, he counsels the patient on proper mental attitude to be fostered during the cure, so that the patient's own thought and emotional processes won't impede the vital force in its work [...] the three foregoing methods of aiding the vital force are in themselves adequate to cure many chronic ailments [...] if some severe chronic conditions are to be cured by the vital force, it must have nearly unimpeded control of the body- that is, it must have the ability to adjust to the various mechanical, chemical and electronic mechanisms of the body with the least possible interference from the outside. With our present degree of understanding, this is best accomplished by the fast [...] if we look at the fast in this light, we are in effect saying to the vital force, 'here, vital force, I give you back your body' [...] the vital force of the body alone is capable of the intricate integrations of actions needed to re-balance the system to overcome many chronic diseases. Man's attempts to control body function in these ailments have nearly always met with long-term disaster [...] why then does one man get a disease and another not? No physician knows for sure. If we took out of this body the vital healing force and left the full care and healing of our diseases to our physicians, I'm sure the human race would have perished thousands of years ago [...] therefore, if this healing force alone has a full understanding of the disease, isn't it only rational that in the attempt to overcome this disease, we give this all-knowing healing force every opportunity to function and exercise to its fullest ability? This we do by the fast [...] here and here alone do we free this vital force from all outside interference and let it do with the multitude of body functions as it will [...] every thought of the physician during the fast should be directed toward these purposes by helping the vital force in every conceivable way. To this end, he must not forget the four fundamental needs of the vital force. These four needs must be met before and during the fast or his success will be incomplete [...] if we find the patient is a good candidate for the fast and is in need of it, we place him on a high-nutrient diet supplemented with colloidal nutritional elements, in an effort to saturate his body with all the materials that the vital force may need later in its healing and repair [...] the nature and purpose of the fast are explained to the patient as I have explained them here. They are also taught of the temporary adverse feelings and emotions that may come with the proper functioning of this internal vital force [...] to force or restrict fluids is an attempt to control the vital force and this is counter to our basic purpose [...] I therefore conduct most fasts by allowing the patient to take water as directed by the vital force through the agency of thirst [...] philosophically, I believe that by offering the body an unnatural product-distilled water-we are in a sense again attempting to influence the vital force in a negative manner, by introducing substances into the body that may cause the vital force to make adjustments not to the best benefit of its objectives. By using distilled water, which tends to disturb the mineral balance of the body, we take away from the vital force things it may need, thereby destroying the balance the vital force is attempting to establish and preserve [...] it takes at least three days for body functioning to come to a standstill and accept the fact that the patient is giving the vital forces full control of its own organism [...] we want to conserve as much body energy as possible for the vital force to use as healing power [...] as the vital force may at certain times during the fast withdraw practically all the body energy to the internal environment to overcome a particularly difficult problem [...] if this is kept within moderate levels by the vital force [etc.]";

Naturopathic medicine [...] 'nature is healer of all diseases' [...] vis medicatrix naturae, 'the healing power of nature': this concept has long been at the core of indigenous medicine in many cultures around the world and remains one of the central themes of naturopathic philosophy to this day";

The whole person must be addressed for healing to take place on the deepest levels [...] you will have cleared away some of the more dense toxins that block the flow of vitality. You will have begun to nurture the life force of your body and will feel more energy and aliveness. This will attract your mind and awareness to shine on the deeper aspects of yourself-letting the healing power of nature penetrate and illuminate new dynamics, sensations and processes. As you pay attention you will be shown what lies next on the road to true wholeness [...] the tensions are allowed to build and fester as we dampen and block our vitality [...] work with the healing power of nature / the vis medicatrix naturae [...] this creative power exists as an unseen constructive force within all living things [...] I can only understand what supports the vis medicatrix naturae and supply that.

The individual must remove these blocks him or herself [...] when people make this shift with awareness they step into a more energized way of being and living. This increase in life energy and freedom is what ultimately leads to healing. We learn to pay attention to our vitality in the process of healing. We learn to listen to the energy of life within us and by doing so we can understand and experience what is in harmony with the Vis and what is not [...] with naturopathic treatment you will begin to let go of blocks to your vitality [...] when the vitality is strengthened and allowed to do its work you may experience a 'healing crisis' [...] as your vitality increases you may go through more short periods of low energy or discomfort as your body and mind continue to clear themselves of unnecessary physical, emotional and mental toxins [...] with the development of medical technology, surgery and pharmaceuticals we have forgotten about the basic foundations of health and vitality [...] modern medicine has given us the ability to save lives in emergency situations but our health and vitality cannot be sustained by the sole use of technology";
