"naturopathic medicine […] acute diseases are the sign of a healthy body attempting to rebalance itself - that is, the body attempting to eliminate excess wastes. It is the sign of a person with a strong and resilient vital force (the life energy or yin and yang) […] chronic diseases […] it basically means that your vital force has been weakened due to an excessive buildup of toxins and morbid matter […] every system and every organ and every cell is connected, both on a physical level (by way of the circulation and nervous systems) and energetic level (as in vital force or qi [in Chinese medicine]) […] cancer […] is an indication that the body has accumulated too much waste […] the body lacks the energy or vital force necessary to rebalance itself […] removal of a cancerous growth […] is only delaying an inevitable potentially fatal condition unless measures are taken to improve the body’s ability to eliminate wastes. That is, to strengthen the vital force and thereby enable the body to rebalance itself. This is accomplished through the implementation and close monitoring of nutritional intake, exercise, sleep, sunshine, the use of hydrotherapy, physical manipulation, supplementation, stress management and homeopathy to stimulate the vital force and aid in detoxification […] health […] vitality (or vital force) […] vitality or vital force is the most influential part of health […] it is the spirit-like life force as […] Hahnemann (the father of homeopathy) stated. It is the force that maintains harmony in the body. The Chinese refer to this force as qi. In Hinduism, it is called prana. The vital force […] vital force; without it, the body is without life and without purpose […] chronic disease can no longer develop […when] the body is balanced and in harmony […per] a strong vital force";

[in “The Vis Part 2”()]
.
“['he wrote this piece to some students at Bastyr University'] the vis part 2. The vis medicatrix naturae [...] the vis medicatrix naturae functions in any given living system as the tendency to organize that system so as to maintain existence [...] the life span tends to be protected by the vis. The vis medicatrix naturae follows the laws of a functional cosmology in keeping with the way the universe has come about. The vis is internally operative. The vis logically began with the first tendency for a living system to maintain itself [...] the vis exists universally and is a cosmological reality [...] critical to the understanding of the vis, is that the vis is not weakened or strengthened by the weakness or strength of the individual [...] the vis medicatrix naturae exists internally [...] the concept of the vis [...] the healing power of nature exists as an eternal law of nature [...] the vis is the equation itself. The vis medicatrix naturae and vitality [...] confusion arises when one equates vitality with the vis medicatrix naturae. The vis is the framework in which vitality has significance. Vitality has no inherent value unless it can be integrated into the equations of the vis [...] the vis is an equation [...] the context of the vis, which is the law that is eternally operative in the system. The vis defines the effects of the variables with respect to each other [...] the vis is the law defining the rules and interactions of the aspects of all systems, including the body, the mind and what we may call the spirit. The reader will have to define spirit for themselves [...] the interactions of the body, mind, and spirit [...] naturopathic medicine attempts to both discover the nature of the equations, (the vis) and amplify the positive effects of the aspects of the equation [...] the nature and utility of the vis. The healing power of nature (the vis medicatrix naturae) [...] the vis as a whole is impossibly complex and unwieldy [...] the vis is the flow chart itself [...] the vis is designed to support survival [...] vast complex equations that comprise the vis [...] naturopathic treatments [...] this way of thinking about the vis [...] remember the vis is extremely vast [...] all of the body’s inherent internal mechanisms to prevent asthma are intact in the vis [...] an understanding of the vis (actual overview of the body’s systems interrelations) [...] the study of the vis is paramount to the study and practice of naturopathic medicine [...] the vis medicatrix naturae in a body mind spirit context [...] the vis medicatrix naturae is all encompassing [...] the vis is autonomic. The equations of how we heal [...] the feedback control systems of the vis [...] naturopathic physicians have some well founded concerns around the tendency in medicine to separate the body from the mind and the spirit. It short changes the patient’s chances to be well [...] the vis includes that portion of human potential and again, it is fully functional as an aspect of the equations of wellness [...] the vis does not seem to have a hierarchy of favorites [...] I had a case in which an 82 year old man with CLL, emaciated and near death at 90 pounds (he was 5’ 4”) made a full recovery with the use of the gravity guidance (a machine that allows you to turn upside by swinging your hands overhead- also called a back swing). Of course, gravity is a profound force of nature for healing as well as disease [...] no other medicine was used. Even his nutrition was basically unchanged. The only variables were intention, gravity, and attitude [...] a second manipulable modality taken from the mind/spirit part of the vis equation is purpose [...] the vis is engaged. The equation, simplified would simply say that: body vitality + mental vitality + spiritual vitality = wellness [...] purpose as a modality of the vis medicatrix naturae [...] a feeling of purpose in a patient drives deep healing potential in their body/mind/spirit [...] purpose is an important component of the vis [...] the vis medicatrix naturae, (the healing power of nature) seems to work best when there is a reason and meaning for wellness. The spiritual component of the vis [...] the healing power of nature (the vis medicatrix naturae) [...] a spiritual life is so fundamental to humans [...] the field of spirituality plays an important role in the human collective consciousness [...] a much deeper and more compelling analysis of the vis and spirituality can be explored in the construction of the vis itself [...] the equations of the vis [...] humans change, and the destiny and modus operandi of that change exists in the equations of the vis [...] 'the healing power of nature takes into account many diverse factors in the body, mind, and spirit of any individual which affect the outcome of the wellness of that individual' [...] the vis attracts the further development of the person [...] the healing power of nature has more wisdom that the sentient present tense of the person [...] the 'future' exists in operative form in the vis (the near future) and in potential form as the vis itself evolves (the far future). The vis compels a person’s curiosity, and offers what seems to be paths to evolved wellness [...] the vis medicatrix naturae and 'the force' [...] Star Wars [...] the vis can be seen as containing a power that guides us to recovery, healing, and toward our potential as human beings. The mystical and spiritual compunction within us is a response to this ever present urging of the vis for us to attain true healing and true purpose [...] it comes from the vis itself which offers a matrix upon which and within which we become fully realized as humans [...] further expressions of the omniscient vis [...] the omnipresent equations of the vis operate on the person 24/7 [...] medications to treat the physical body and even the 'mental' body do not address the fundamentals comprising the vis. The scope of the vis medicatrix naturae: the healing power of nature [...] the fabric of the vis. The healing power on [sp., of] nature [...] an intact vis ever functioning in our beings [...] because soul is continuous and contiguous, the power of the vis to heal, to call forth full realized potential within us, is the power of us in the future [...] the vis, full wellness is not attained on the spiritual plane until self and source are united, or at least fully synchronous. (Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven) [...] these are aspects of the vis. (Pieces of the equation) [...] that part of the equation of the vis in which people are a part of the healing power of nature [...] manipulating any aspect of the vis can have a profound effect on a patient’s health, and it is difficult to predict which modality or medicine will prove the most efficatous[sp.]. The vis medicatrix naturae [...] 'environment' is a brief way of saying the body, mind, and spirit of the world [...] the integrated body itself [...] because of the cosmological construction and function of the vis, naturopathic medicine, as an operative practice of 'vis conscious' medicine, is a political science [!] as well as a medical science [!...] recall that the vis medicatrix naturae is the healing power of nature as a whole, not only the human part of nature [...] we are affecting the values of the many parts of the vis [...] wellness is dependant [sp.] on many variables, all of which are represented in the equations of the vis [...] the deterioration of the environment affects the depth of the vis [...] the body, mind, and spirit of the person is affected. Because of the healing power of nature, 'the vis' [...] there are many variables in the equations of the vis that we do not yet grasp [...] the vis itself (the equation itself) [...] the consequences of our actions are being currently dealt with by the vis [...] naturopathic physicians recognize that the health of people is possible only in a functional and balanced cosmology [...] the danger of treating the symptoms of disease and an argument for a better understanding of the vis [...] proper application of the vis medicatrix naturae is the only sensible answer to the health care crisis confronting this nation [...] the healing power of nature, given healthy raw materials, and a healthy environment, is an affective healing system encouraged and practiced by naturopathic physicians [...] botanical medicines [...] homeopathic remedies, exercise techniques, nutrition, counseling, hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, and naturopathic manipulation, and other natural modalities [...] these remedies are natural aspects of the evolving vis. Toxins and the vis [...] chemicals can be ecologically troubling, other more insidious assaults on the vis are occurring, among these are adding toxins to the non-human communities, i.e. fish, which then can harm them and be recycled back into humans [...] the healing power of nature [...] internal healing mechanisms activate. We call this the immune system. Naturopathic doctors are an immune system that Gaia has brought forth”;

.
“[citing Hahnemann] here is an example comparing paragraph 9, first from Kunzli and then from O'Reilly: ‘in the state of health the spirit-like vital force (dynamis) animating the material human organism reigns in supreme sovereignty. It maintains the sensations and activities of all the parts of the living organism in a harmony that obliges wonderment. The reasoning spirit who inhabits the organism can thus freely use this healthy living instrument to reach the lofty goal of human existence’ (Kunzli). ‘In the healthy human state, the spirit-like force (autocracy) that enlivens the material organism as dynamis, governs without restriction and keeps all parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both feelings and functions, so that our indwelling, rational spirit can freely avail itself of this living, healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence (O'Reilly).’ I have adjusted to this new edition and appreciate the literalness of the text. Its like reading the Organon as a contemporary of Hahnemann”;

[in "Naturopathic Medicine -- This I Believe" (2007)]
.
"I believe in the healing power of nature [...] something inside me coordinated the healing and repair, without me even thinking about it, completely involuntarily. Hippocrates, the father of western medicine, described that 'something' as the vis medicatrix naturae -- the healing power of nature. It is that same force that helped my wife's broken leg mend and grow straight when she was a teenager, and my father heal from coronary by-pass surgery last year. Nearly every culture has a name for it — the Chinese call it chi, in India they refer to it as prana, the Japanese call it ki. Present when we are born and gone when we die, this animating force exists in every living plant and animal, including humans [...] this powerful, healing force in people [...] therapeutic lifestyle changes remove obstacles to cure, permitting the vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature to flow freely and help us regain that equilibrium we call health";

"how we define the core and essence of naturopathy to ourselves [...] Hahnemann's homeopathy linked the disturbed vital force to the diseased body, and D.D. Palmer's chiropractic saw the spine as a conduit for the 'innate wisdom' [...] alternative medical practices stepped in and linked the healing power of nature with the human spirit [p.122...] what forms the heart of our healing art [...we have] more than a belief in the healing power of nature [...we] directly stimulate the vis medicatrix naturae [...per] working directly with chi, prana or the vital force [...] science and medicine have spent the last 500 years divorced from religion and spirituality. [Appositely] as naturopaths, we must openly acknowledge and unabashedly embrace our partnership with a higher power. The only way to accomplish this is to establish energetic therapies like homeopathy, Chinese and ayurvedic medicine and hydrotherapy at the center of our definition of naturopathy [...per] energy medicines, the practice of homeopathy [...] there is no philosophical conflict between homeopathy and naturopathic medicine. In fact, homeopathy is probably the clearest example of the healing power of nature [...] the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians gave us a clear definition of naturopathic medicine [...] patients get well because their healing begins at the deepest level of being - at the point where the body and its animating spirit meet [...per] the highest ideal of cure [p.123]";

"naturopathic medicine takes its roots from the vitalistic tradition of medicine, emphasizing the treatment of disease through the stimulation, enhancement, and support of the inherent healing nature of life [...] naturopathic medicine is defined by principles rather than by methods or modalities. Methods of treatments are chosen to work with the patient's vital force, respecting the intelligence of the natural healing process [...] the practice of naturopathic medicine emerges from six underlying principles of healing [..] it is these principles that distinguish the profession from other medical approaches: [#1] vis medicatrix naturae – the healing power of nature: naturopathic treatments work in harmony with the body’s healing power, to increase vitality and eliminate disease. The body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the appropriate response of the life force. The physician's role is to facilitate and augment this process. [#2] Primum non nocere – first, do no harm: illness is a purposeful process of the organism. The process of healing includes the generation of symptoms which are, in fact, an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself [...] by using natural medicines, an ND can support the body's natural healing force [...] naturopathic physicians use water in many forms, from steam baths to cryotherapy, to help stimulate the natural healing force";

Qi is the life force that controls all functions of the body and mind. Disease represents a disruption in the body’s equilibrium and in the flow of qi. Acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition are used to support the body in re-gaining a state of health.
