[...] how would you describe the vital force? [...] as we begin this talk on the vital force and disease [...] how do we measure human energy? [...] how do we know? [...] I'd like to read the 9th aphorism from Hahnemann [...which talks of vital force as] 'the spirit-like life force (autocracy [...or] dynamism that animates the material body' [...] this life force, when it is working, it keeps everything in check [...] however, in aphorism 11, Hahnemann tells us [...illness is the derangement of] 'this spiritual, self-acting (automatic) vital force' [...] when we fall ill [...] it is the vital force that is deranged [...] what is the vital force? [...] that which animates life [...] when we have it we're alive, when we don't have it we're not alive [...] we cannot see the vital force, we cannot see gravity [...stuff we cannot] see but believe to exist [...] the homeopath Kent [..] discussed the qualities of the vital force [...] it is intelligent [...] it knows [...] the vital force holds sway over the operations of the mind and body [...] it is the vital force that adapts to the environment [...] the state of the vital force [...] how do we know it is present? [...] how do we know when the vital force is disturbed in any way? [...] we know the vital force is disturbed by the symptoms created.  Symptoms are the form that the disturbed vital force takes.  The real disease is the disturbance that disrupts the vital force [...] more energy will be created and hence more disease [...] the disturbance on the vital force [...] the vital force's reaction [...] the ability of the vital force to react [...] naturopathic model of healing [...includes at its center] disturbance of the vital force [...footnoted to NDs] Zeff [...] Snider [...and] Myers [...] we know a disturbance in the vital force occurs because we see a total symptom picture [...] the vital force might not be susceptible [...] each person whose vital force will be disturbed [...and we're told per Kent that infectious bacteria are] outcomes of the disease [...] the cause is much more subtle than anything that can be shown by microscope [...] the exciting cause is simply that which disturbs the vital force [...] the vital force responds only to factors which have some similarity or resonance to its own nature [...] the vital force responded to those factors which had similarity to its own nature [...] if the person's vital force resonates with the disturbance [...] recall the writings of Lindlahr, from first year, in Theory and Practice [...] the exciting cause can lead to disturbance in the vital force [...] in talking about the vital force [...] vitalism, vital force [...] from this conversation and the reading, how would you define vitalism?";

"acupuncture was and still is a major mode of treatment for traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioners. A direct translation from this early text describes acupuncture as putting holes in the body to regulate qi [...] what is qi? The literal translation of qi from Chinese means 'breath' just as our English word 'spirit' comes from the Latin 'spiritus' or 'breath.' Qi can be understood as your life force or vital energy. You can imagine pathways of qi flowing through your body [...] qi operates like [...] water ways [...] the pathways where qi flows are called meridians [...] if qi cannot take its normal course, excess qi will accumulate at the impasse and other areas of your body will not receive the vitality needed to be well. Improper flow manifests as pain or sickness, be it a tummy ache or insomnia [...] acupuncture is used to regulate the flow of qi by inserting thin metal needles at specific points along the meridians where qi flows [...] information gathered during the diagnostic process will inform your acupuncturist where qi is imbalanced. Then, he or she will work along meridians where qi flows to problem area [...e.g.] placement strengthens the flow of qi to the kidney if it is deficient or to drains qi if there is excess [...] to remove blockages of energy and to promote free flow [...] some patients say that they feel a pleasurable sensation when a desired point is located. We call this 'the arrival of the qi'";

"traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of medicine based on balancing the flow of energy throughout the body using oriental herbs and acupuncture [...] when the needle is inserted in the correct location you will feel a dull ache known as 'de qi' [...] in the TCM system of medicine, the body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents the cold, slow, or passive principle, while yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle.  Health is achieved by maintaining the body in a 'balanced state' and disease is due to an imbalance of yin and yang. This imbalance leads to blockage in the flow of qi (energy) along pathways known as meridians. There are 12 main meridians and 8 secondary meridians and more than 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body that connect with them [...] homeopathy [...] uses minute amounts of natural substances to stimulate the self-healing abilities of the body [...] they work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body [...] it is thought that this process imprints the healing energy of the medicinal substance throughout the body of water [...] the message contains the healing energy [...] reiki is a holistic, light-touch, energy-based form of healing.

"naturopathic medicine considers each person to have a 'vital force.' The vital force is what gives life to the body. The vital force is how each of us will respond to stressors and illness in life. The vital force is a measurement of vitality one contains [...] when our vitality is strong as a result for example, from eating well, making positive lifestyle choices like exercise, fresh air and stress reduction, we are able to better bounce back from an illness or stress. Thus, when we need our vital force to respond, it does. Our vital force is affected by many factors, including genetics, daily dietary and lifestyle habits, past medical history, our ability to process and express emotions and thoughts, and how rich our life is filled with enjoyment for what we are doing. The naturopathic doctor will use therapies that support the vital force to respond in a way that moves the body toward healing and good health [...] the homeopathic remedies are then administered based on the patient’s whole symptom picture. The remedy stimulates the patient’s vital force to start the healing process. Remember, our vital force is the part of us that is not seen but felt. Please refer to the 'The Philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine' section for a discussion of the vital force [...] 'naturopathic physicians (NDs) take a holistic approach to healing, and aim to cure disease by taking advantage of the body's self-regenerative powers and harnessing the restorative power of nature [...] naturopathic physicians work to identify and eliminate the cause of disease, and are guided by six basic principles [...#2] utilize the healing power of nature [...] Principles the Naturopathic Doctor Lives By [...#2] the healing power of nature.
