"the concept of qi [...]  is at the fundamental basis of Chinese medicine. Qi is often translated as 'life force' or 'vital energy' [...] trees, water and human emotions all have qi. Qi concentrated is manifested as matter and conversely, qi spread out is space. When qi flows smoothly and unimpeded there is health. When qi is blocked there is disease. Every process and everything represents a transformation of one and the same qi. Yin (matter) and yang (function) are the two most basic forms of this ONE universal qi. Chinese medicine practitioners look for imbalances of qi in the body [...] disturbance in qi flow creates symptoms in the individual. Symptoms create patterns that represent the imbalances and blocks in the system. When these patterns are identified, one can restore health by regulating and balancing the qi in the body accordingly [...] acupuncture needles are inserted into certain points as determined by the patient’s Chinese pattern diagnosis to restore and balance the flow of qi";

"acupuncture points are places on the skin that have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than the surrounding skin and are part of a network of points that were mapped centuries ago by the Chinese. Most are found along ‘meridians’ or ‘channels’ that are believed to be the pathways by which energy or qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) flows through the body [...] a dull, heavy, or aching feeling often occurs when the needle is correctly placed. This is referred to as ‘de qi’ and is considered by some traditional acupuncturists to be necessary for acupuncture to be effective";

A Naturopathic doctor will use acupuncture and Eastern herbs to assist the body in regulating the chi and achieving balance";

"acupuncture is an ancient form of alternative medicine that originated in China thousands of years ago.  It is a therapy that stems from traditional Chinese medicine and is based on a belief that vital energy or qi flows through our body via channels called meridians.  Each meridian is interconnected and corresponds to one organ or a group of organs that is  responsible for how the body functions.  The proper flow of qi within the meridians is essential in maintaining health emotionally, physically and spiritually.  When imbalance of qi occurs, where there is either too much, too little or the flow is blocked, the two complementary opposing energies that maintain health, that is yin and yang, also become disrupted. When this occurs our overall health and well being is affected and there is an occurrence of symptoms or ailments.  To harmonize the flow of qi, the balance between yin and yang, and ultimately health, acupuncture is performed where extremely fine needles are superficially inserted into points along the meridians";

"when I look at food, I pay attention to how much ‘life force energy’ is in the food. Life force energy is a term that denotes how much energy you have available to you in your body. How much life force energy do you have for your daily activities, the things that are required of you and the things that you want to do? How resilient are you? The more life force energy that exists in your food leads to more life force energy in your cells, tissues, and organs [...] look at the ‘vibrational’ energy of your food and how high the life force energy is in it? Foods that are raw will have more energy in them than foods that are cooked. Food that is consumed fresh has more energy than food that comes out of a box or has been sitting on the shelf for long periods of time. Frozen foods have less life force energy than fresh foods. Foods higher in life force energy include fruits and vegetables whereas foods lower in life force energy would include meat, coffee, soft drinks, alcohol, flour, and sugar [...] choosing to eat all colors of the rainbow will subtly influence your chakra system [...] this will also increase the life force energy in your body";

"qi (chi) is the vital energy of the body. This energy travels just below the skin through channels called meridians. The meridians connect all of the body’s organs and systems. Problems arise when this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened. When this occurs, imbalances in the body’s various systems become evident. Problems can arise in the: nervous system, circulatory system, musculo-skeletal system, digestive system, reproductive system, lymphatic system and/or genitourinary system. Stimulation of associated acupuncture points on the body helps to restore the smooth flow of qi and brings harmony to the affected area. How does it work? The qi normally flows smoothly through over twelve meridians or channels in the body. If a blockage occurs and the qi is not able to course through these channels, then the entire system can be affected, resulting in pain or symptoms in the body. Acupuncture removes the blockage to restore the flow of qi throughout the body. It brings the body back into balance and removes the symptoms";

"lab tests don’t reveal the vital force of the patient from a homeopathic perspective [...] it works better to 'read' the patient with other methods of evaluating the vital force. I prefer electrodermal testing (EAV), although other methods like applied kinesiology can work well, too. The method of evaluating vital force is not as important as remembering that the patient - not the doctor - is the one with the most critical information for curing the case [...] an exception is when a formula is made specifically for the patient based on EAV or other vital force measurements. As with the rest of homeopathy, the mechanism of homeopathic detoxification is unknown. One could speculate it is similar to allergy desensitization or immunization, that it affects toxins at receptor sites, or simply improves blood and lymph circulation, kidney and liver function, and increases the vital force";

"homeopathy literally means 'similar suffering'.

Disease is defined as a mistunement or energetic imbalance of the life force which can be acute (self-limiting) or chronic (ingrained). Most remedies (those at 12C and higher) contain no actual molecules of the remedy substance, but instead carry the energy signature transferred to the solvent (usually alcohol) by the substance as it was sucussed (mixed) and diluted [...] the mechanism is cure is this: a similar (but not same) and stronger 'artificial' disease (the remedy), which has a signature vibration, is introduced to the life force, which has its own vibration (the disease). The vibration of the remedy is similar to the vibration of the life force, but stronger, so it alters the life force’s vibration (interference). The life force now responds to the artificial disease and in the process is able to throw off the natural disease. The artificial disease is removed when the remedy is completed and the life force returns to a healthy state";

Two major physiological manifestations of yin and yang are your blood and a nebulous concept called qi […] which represents the life force that energizes you […] qi inhabits your body and the bodies of all things. People have qi. Birds have qi. All animals have qi. Vegetables have qi. Rocks also possess qi. Each star in the sky has its own qi. Sand on the beach has qi. All thing, animate or inanimate, possess qi […] as far as the body is concerned, it translates roughly into energy. Qi circulates blood and holds all of your tissues and organs into place […] your own qi is then responsible for transporting that nourishing, revitalizing energy throughout your body [p.460]";

vital force [...] homeopathy is a vitalistic medicine system (Chinese medicine is another major one). They both acknowledge the vital force (chi or prana). This is the intangible intelligence that comes with life. The vital force represents some form of energy. Every life function depends on this energy. Because we cannot perceive energy with the naked eye (nor measure this energy with current science), we find it difficult to comprehend, yet we know when it is there and when it isn't. It is the difference between something that is alive and that which is dead. When the vital force becomes disturbed the result is symptoms--emotional, physical and mental. A homeopathic medicine that matches these symptoms works as a catalyst, bringing the vital force back to health and helping the body to heal itself”;

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 far fewer side effects than pharmaceutical products [...] the key principle that connects all of Chinese medicine is that of qi, or vital energy. The qi of all organs must be in balance, neither too active nor too dormant, for a person to be healthy. The qi of the body's organs and systems are all connected in meridians or channels that lie just under the skin. Eastern herbs and acupuncture are used to assist the body in regulating the qi and achieving balance [...] your body knows how to heal: the body has within it all the potential and intelligence it needs to heal";

"acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine [...] acupuncture points (also referred to as 'acupoints') are places on the skin that have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than the surrounding skin and are part of network of points that were mapped centuries ago by the Chinese.  Most are found along 'meridians', or 'channels' that are believed to be the pathways by which energy or 'qi' (pronounced 'chee'), flows through the body [...] a dull, heavy or aching feeling often occurs when the needle is correctly placed.  This is referred to as 'de qi' and is considered by some traditional acupuncturists to be necessary for acupuncture to be effective.  Pain relief can often be obtained without provoking the de qi response.  Recent fMRI studies indicate that there is a difference in the response of the brain to needling with and without the de qi sensation. The needles are left in place for 15-30 minutes, and the practitioner may manipulate the needles to strengthen or reduce the flow of qi.  Lifting, twisting and rotating are some of the needling techniques a practitioner may use";

"we rely upon the healing wisdom, vital energies and intelligence of the organism [...] the six principles are these: vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature [...] vis medicatrix naturae: our first guiding principle is vis medcatrix naturae, 'the healing power of nature,' the observation that the body is a wise internal organization and self-healing in nature. This principle is stated: 'the healing power of nature is the 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 the naturopathic physician’s role to support, facilitate and augment this process by identifying and removing obstacles to health and removing obstacles to health and recovery, and by supporting the creation of a healthy internal and external environment.' We are saying in this statement that the nature of the body is to heal itself, and the physician’s role is to assist this process. The guidance is internal, the 'ordered and intelligent' aspect of the living being. It is not the physician’s role to make healing happen or to supersede the intelligence, which directs the process of healing [...] we rely upon the healing wisdom, vital energies and intelligence of the organism to restore normal and healthy function. The task of the doctor becomes simply to identify and remove causes, to nourish and support normal structure and function, and to stimulate the vis medicatrix naturae. Health will occur where the conditions for health exist even as disease is the product of conditions allowing it to occur. As necessary, we stimulate the process of restoration through a hierarchy of therapeutic interventions rationally applied. Remember it is the nature of the body to heal; the physician, at best, can assist this process [...] symptoms are not the disease but the result of factors, which disturb the normal physiological processes, and are an expression of the body’s attempt to heal itself [...] are we the doctors who treat disease with 'natural medicine' or are we naturopathic physicians, those who work with the self-healing processes of the body? In the process of healing [...] the order of the healing process and the appropriate therapeutic order [...] stimulate the self-healing mechanisms";
