naturopathic medicine is based on the philosophy of vitalism: that all living beings possess an intelligent, living energy which gives us an innate ability to heal. Naturopathic medicine, based in European traditions, calls this energy the vital force. Oriental medicine traditions call it the qi; ayurvedic medicine from India refers to it as prana. Every traditional culture from around the world has their own term for this phenomenon, and more than 95 different names for the vital force have been recorded. Interestingly [and here’s the pseudoscience of ‘quantum vitalism-mysticism’], the most advanced theories of matter and energy in the field of modern physics, called quantum field theories, are virtually identical to the descriptions of qi and prana given in the ancient texts, many of which are thousands of years old [this has been debunked from the point of view of the scientific, as vitalism has]. The vital force constitutes a natural wisdom of the body which constantly works to restore health to the human system -- in essence a living, intelligent, feedback control system. Naturopathic medicine is designed to work with this inherent healing ability in a holistic manner to restore balance and harmony to the whole person [...sidebar] the 6 core principles of naturopathic medicine. Today there are six major principles which define the naturopathic approach […] naturopathic doctors apply these principles with every patient. The healing power of nature. The body's natural wisdom, its vital force, constantly works to restore health and balance to the human system. Naturopathic medicine works in harmony with this inherent healing ability in a holistic manner to restore balance and harmony to the whole person. First, Do No Harm. Naturopathic medicine seeks to avoid harm to patients by working in [gram.] with the vital force rather than against it, and by utilizing natural healing modalities which minimize harmful side effects. Identify and treat the root cause. Illness is the result of an imbalance to the vital force […quoting Lust 1918, ‘founder of modern naturopathic medicine’] ‘the natural system of curing disease […per] employment of various forces, and so raise the vitality";

"chronic diseases and naturopathic medicine […] in the philosophy of naturopathic medicine, the paramount factor in maintaining health is the vital force – our body's innate, intelligent energy. When our vital force is strong, any invading pathogen or other disease-causing condition is able to be driven off. The body temporarily produces symptoms such as fever, perspiration, etc. which helps eliminate the disease. We usually refer to this as an acute disease. If our vital force has become weakened, however, through improper diet, lack of exercise, stress, exposure to environmental toxins, or some other mechanism, it may not be strong enough to mount an effective response against the disease. When this happens, the disease can move deeper into our bodies, affecting more of our body at the cellular level […per] chronic disease – a condition where our vital force is too weak to mount a response and drive out the disease. It is important to note that time, the duration of the illness, is not a factor in determining if a disease is acute or chronic. It is possible to have a lingering, acute illness, and also to immediately develop a chronic illness the instant we are exposed to a pathogen. The determining factor is the strength of our vital force [...] raise the energy / vital force […] the vital force brings about a complete healing […] inhibiting the body's ability to do what it needs to do in order to restore health amounts to suppression of the vital force [the naturopathic 'first do no harm']. This gradually weakens the body, reducing its ability to heal. Naturopathic medicine excels at the treatment of chronic disease precisely because it does NOT suppress the vital force. Instead, it works by enhancing the body's own natural healing mechanisms";

“homeopathy is a system of health care which uses highly dilute substances as medicines. The focus of homeopathy is the patient's vital force itself, which, when properly stimulated, initiates the body's innate healing ability […] the energetic patterns of homeopathic medicines are believed to stimulate the vital force of the patient in a subtle way, which causes the patient to respond. In this way, homeopathic medicines work in harmony with the patient's natural, homeostatic mechanisms to return the internal environment of the body to its normal energy state, in other words, a state of health”;

“the healing power of nature […] stress and the constellation of symptoms it produces is really a new, modern miasm in our culture. Traditional homeopathy teaches that miasms are primarily due to infectious illnesses, but given our holistic structure as energetic human beings, and that infectious organisms can't colonize healthy tissues but only invade hosts with abnormal internal environments [!], we need to rethink this notion […] energetic miasms […] old naturopathic authors such as Lust and Lindlahr often spoke of ‘nerve energy.’ In my analysis, this nerve energy [see Shermer, M. "Why Darwin Matters," who quotes Dawkins, R. per "nerve energy" - as a fake explanation {p.175}{ISBN 0805081216}] is clearly qi, or the vital force. Since we all have auras and energy fields that interact with each other and the planet, we can start to see how the notion of an energetic miasm may come to originate [...] a fear-based miasm”;

"while in the 1800’s and until now, the whack-a-mole method of medicine predominated, there were and are other clinicians practicing a form of medicine called vitalism. What made vitalistic practitioners different is their unique understanding health and disease. It was this alternative perspective that made all of the difference for their patients. Hahnemann describes his and his colleagues observations of their patient outcomes in his book entitled The Organon of Medicine, which states: '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 instrument to reach the lofty goals of human existence'";
