"what is the vis medicatrix naturae? This is Latin for the healing power of nature and one of the naturopathic principles [...]  the body has an innate ability to heal [...] the healing power of nature which we will call 'the vis'. Someone with a stronger vis will be able to recover with much more ease than someone with less vis, given the same condition. But this does not mean that someone with a weaker vis cannot build that up. This is one of the goals of naturopathic medicine. The vis is not just a physical life force, or strength. It is also emotional and spiritual [...] this situation can lower one’s vis [...] the bio-impedance analysis test BIA, which we run in our office is a way to partially quantify the vis [...] the physical aspect of a person’s vital force [...] how do you influence the vis? There are many ways to to influence the vis and generally this is what we go into detail with a naturopathic consultation [...] from a mind body perspective the vis can be enhanced by [etc....] depletes the vis [...] so give yourself the gift of encouraging the vis medicatrix naturae within yourself";

“acupuncture, the ancient Chinese art of healing, originated almost 6000 years ago with written records of its practice dating from about 500 B.C. Its principles are based upon the theory of qi. Qi is the vital energy which pervades and sustains all beings and things manifest and unmanifest in the cosmos of which man is the integral part. Qi circulates throughout the body along a system of intricate pathways called meridians and collaterals. When the qi flows freely and in abundance, we are in the state of health, while lack of qi give rise to disease and even death [...] the purpose of treatment is to help the body to heal itself by stimulating and harmonizing the flow of life force or qi [...] Chinese herbs are a combination of natural plant, animal and mineral substances used to heal and balance the human body, mind and emotions. Herbs can help balance the organ's yin and yang and invigorate the qi [...] naturopathic medicine emphasizes the treatment of disease through the stimulation, enhancement, and support of the inherent healing capacity of the person. Methods of treatments are chosen to work with the patient's vital force, respecting the intelligence of the natural healing process”;

Chi is the life force present in all living organisms that helps maintain health. Acupuncture helps the ‘chi’ move along pathways (also known as meridians) to remove blockages or imbalances of ‘chi’ that result in pain and illness. Treatment involves the use of small, sterile, non-reusable needles placed on precise locations on the body to stimulate a healing response. Pulse and tongue diagnosis is used to aide in the determination of treatment";

“the electromagnetic field is very likely the 'vital force' that Hahnemann (the father of homeopathy) referred to [...] if the stimulus is powerful enough to overwhelm the vital force, the electromagnetic field undergoes a greater change in vibrational rate, and effects are eventually felt by the individual. The symptoms of a disease are nothing but reactions trying to rid the organism of earlier disturbances on a dynamic electromagnetic level. (George Vithoulkas 1979)”;

Energy exists in all living organisms and is transferable from one state to another. In Chinese medicine vital energy is called qi (chi). Qi is continually added to the body [...]  energy is also being lost continuously [...] energy in and out creates homeostasis. When there is a disturbance we will end up a deficiency or excess of energy. In Chinese medicine vital energy qi is classified into yin and yang. Yang energy is responsible for our active state and yin energy is responsible for our rest state. Qi flows through pathways in the body called meridians or channels. There are 12 channels through which yin and yang energy flow [...] yang energy channels flow from outside to inside and yin energy channels flow from inside to outside";

"how can I practice natural medicine without having the ability to understand one of the major tenets of naturopathic medicine: the vis medicatrix naturae or the healing power of nature [...] the body’s pulses are a mirror of its internal energetics [...] next I began to understand what would put the body into balance. As a natural health practitioner I can use a number of modalities that directly affects the energetics of the body. Though some will work on a physiologic level many components work on an energetic level as well. I soon noticed that whether homeopathy, herbal or nutriceuticals, they can all bring the body into balance and change its energetics from one that is out of phase (to use electrical parlance) to one that is in-phase. This tuning of the vibration or energy of the body to one that is in-phase or moving in a balanced and smooth rhythm opened the body to its innate ability to heal itself [...]  what I saw in the similarities of the different natural therapies was that they were energetic therapies trying to get the body to recognize the imbalance and correct itself. It is this brilliance of our healing power that gives us the ability to correct problems, to heal and bring the whole organism back into  balance physically, mentally and spiritually [...] we all have heard of different kinds of energy but have we fully grasped or understood what these natural medical traditions are trying to say. It is very difficult to understand the significance of their teachings without actually perceiving the energy. Intellectualizing this can give us insight, granted and that insight can be used to generally maintain a certain degree of health of the organism; however, without feeling that energy, or seeing it, or in a very advanced state being one with it we are at a great disadvantage. Without a direct perception of that energy [...] there is a real problem working with qi, or what other disciplines call the vital force or prana if you really don’t have a clear and perceptible relationship with it. Prana is not a thing of the intellect. It is felt, sometimes seen, but which can be used by the body and mind to transform illness into health and lower consciousness into higher [...] so the point here is that one must really be able to perceive the energy you are working with [...] unfortunately or fortunately, science has not come up with a method to measure qi, or prana [...] I was able to feel this prana in the body and able to know when that prana is flowing in a balanced or imbalanced way [...] it is as though within you have this sea of prana [...] it is all prana, all energy [... ] we are energy and spiritual beings and we should have a medicine that reflects that";

Qi originates from the organs and travels in channels called 'meridians'.  While the pathways of qi are usually deep in the tissues, at certain spots they surface up to the skin.  These spots are called 'acupuncture points'.  By accessing specific acupuncture points, the healing energy can be transmitted to the organs of origin and healing is aided.
