"the philosophy of naturopathic medicine provides the distinction between this traditional form of healing and the newer conventional ideals. There are six underlying premises on which the philosophy is based: first do no harm - primum non nocere. Support the healing power of nature, 'the vital force' - vis medicatrix naturae";

[in "The Vis" (2008-03-10)]
.
"what is the 'vis medicatrix naturae?' The term is commonly translated as 'the healing power of nature' [...a] physically elusive concept [...] the 'vis' is not a thing that is directly perceivable [...] we do not yet have a means to measure the effects of the 'vis' and hence confirm its existence [...] I believe the 'vis' is as intricately crucial to healing as gravity is to falling [...] the 'vis' is not yet recognized and accepted as a crucial component of the healing process [...] we do not have to believe in the 'vis' to experience its effects. The 'vis' is not magical or mystical, it is a term used to describe the healing process of the body [...] Chinese medicine, Western herbs, homeopathy, naturopathy, physical manipulation, etc. can all be used effectively to bolster the healing of the body. I would even argue that western pharmaceuticals can support the 'vis' when applied synergistically to the healing process [...] the healing that is possible through the support of the 'vis' is the ideal of healing. I feel fortunate to witness, practice, and support this ideal daily [...] as more and more individuals experience true healing our collective acceptance of the influence of the 'vis' will become universal and our actions will be more congruent with a lifestyle that is beneficial to our own health and the health of the planet. That truly is the healing power of nature";

[in "Electrodermal Testing - Vega Testing"]

"the vega machine is a tool used in bio-energetic-medicine. Its basis is the concept that the first sign of abnormality in the body is a an energetic or electrical charge change in a cells or organ tissues. If these abnormal electrical charges are permitted to continue, a structural changes will occur creating a condition for disease and degeneration to occur. Western medicine is the only medical system that: does not have a vitalistic approach to illness, has no concept of biological energy. All other forms of medicine practiced, have some concept of vital force or energy of some description";

[in "Naturopathic Treatment of Cold Feet"]
.
"from a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, cold feet often relate to yang or chi deficiency states, chi energy stagnation [...] we make qi by combining food and air. Our ability to make qi will depend partly on our physical constitution, partly on our lifestyle. In its simplest sense our qi is our available energy. We need energy for all the body’s activity: for movement, for digestion, for warding off illness, to get through the day.  We can increase our available energy through breathing, physical exercise and postural alignment. Qi easily becomes stagnant when its circulation in the body is restricted by tension. So relaxation is a major key to the liberation and formation of qi. To support and increase our qi we need to eat foods which release energy steadily into our system over a long period of time. This quality is partly described in the West as complex carbohydrates which provide a sustained source of energy.  Foods which tonify qi include";
