Murach, M. (ND Bastyr 2003) states:
[in "What is Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine?" (2012)]
.
"acupuncture is most commonly thought of as the insertion of extremely fine needles into very specific points, or acu-points, to promote the balancing of qi [translated loosely as energy] throughout the meridians of the body. It works to unblock and reestablish the normal flow of this energy in order for healing to begin and optimum health to be achieved [...] acu-points can also be manually stimulated. Commonly incorporated into treatments where there are blockages, or stagnation, in the flow of qi [...] with gua sha, the practitioner uses a flat edged tool that is rubbed across affected areas of the patient's body to increase the flow of qi through areas of stagnation";

"the six principles of naturopathic medicine are the backbone of the medical philosophy that distinguishes naturopathy from other forms of medical treatment: [#1] the healing power of nature: the body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the response of the life force. The physician's role is to facilitate and augment this process [...#3] first do no harm: the process of healing includes the generation of symptoms which are, in fact, an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic actions should be complimentary to and synergistic with this healing process";

"acupuncture is the insertion of sterile hair-like needles into specific acupuncture points of the body. There are 12 main channels, 8 additional channels and a number of micro-channels through which qi (pronounced chee and sometimes written as chi) and blood travel. Qi is often translated from Chinese to English as 'vital energy.' This vital energy is constantly flowing throughout the body and is considered our life force. As we face day-to-day stress or severe illness, the flow of qi becomes stagnant or blocked in various channels. When qi is blocked we become ill, have pain, stiffen and often become restless or discontent. Acupuncture works to re-harmonize the flow of qi or blood enabling the body to heal and the mind to relax";

"homeopathy is a powerful system that employs highly diluted substances to treat conditions according to the principle that 'like cures like.' First pioneered by Dr. Hahnemann over 200 years ago, homeopathic remedies act to enhance the body's innate vital force which represents the immune system [...] acupuncture [...] and traditional Chinese medicine [...] is the ancient healing practice of China [...] as an acupuncturist, Coleen Murphy uses acupuncture [...] fine needles are inserted into points along the body's energy channels (meridians) [...] TCM incorporates the use of herbs, heat therapy, cupping and other techniques to restore the natural energy flow in the body. This is the most effective treatment for those who want to clear energetic blockages and strengthen the body's natural healing system";

“[in the Organon, its] preface. Hahnemann […] alludes that disease is not a physical phenomenon, that it is a disturbance in the vital force and cure is a reaction of the vital force [p.001]. Hahnemann did not differentiate between a homoeopathic remedy and a stress – getting well or getting injured, they both disturb the vital force […] he alludes the law of similars, and the minimum dose for restoring health without shock to the vital force. He came to the conclusion that the vital force is a delicate thing […] vital principle (equals vital force) [p.002…] a drug’s therapeutic strength is its ability to alter the vital force [p.003…] Hahnemann was very aware of the delicacy of the vital force […] the emphasis should be on studying the vital force and cultivating the vital force [p.005…] the vital force. The first major feature is the constitution, the constitutional vitality, the innate strength or energy […] this is the vital force [p.035...] our goal is understanding the vital force [p.039...] homoeopathy and the vital force. Energy [...] a person's vital force should be what's on our mind [...] learning about the vital force [p.049...] the more we see and study disease, the more we learn about the vital force [...] the perspective of the vital force [...] studying the vital force is studying life [...] Kent has very good concepts of the vital force [p.050...] not based on the vital force [...] we need real reactions in the vital force [...] the vital force is susceptible to problems [p.068...] the idea of Hahnemann is to have a smooth, gentle cure; keeping a person comfortable and keeping the vital force in a state of order [...] their vital force in unstable [...] the vital force [p.075...] the child's vital force [...] any indirect influences on the vital force that deranged it [...] the influences on the vital force [...] something bends the vital force slowly [...] tear the vital force [p.079...] the vital force doesn't like it [...] we're doing something harmful to the vital force [p.133...] the urine is permeated with vital energy [...] the more deprivation of vital energy takes place [p.141...] all we have to do is judge the vital force [...] exercises that exercise the vital force [...] the whole goal of homoeopathy is to cultivate the vital force [...] we want to increase the vital energy [p.142...] the vital force didn't tell me to change [...] or the vital force would've told you [etc....] the vital force will take away the things in its own time [p.153...] that gives the vital force time to stabilize [...] a medicinal aggravation is where we're forcing the remedy on the vital force [...] the vital force succumbs to it [p.192...] 'rapid improvement means the vital force has gone to a new level of strength, and then the vital force throws the disease off' [...] with the lower potencies, you're cultivating the vital force gently and increasing it, and the vital force throws off the disorder, usually according to Hering's law [...] you leave it up to the person's own vital force [p.193...] the authority is the vital force [p.208]";

"the 'Select Committee on the Definition of Naturopathic Medicine' succeeded in a 3-year project that culminated in the unanimous adoption by AANP's House of Delegates of a comprehensive, consensus definition of naturopathic medicine in 1989 at the annual convention held at Rippling River, OR [...] 'these principles are the skeleton, the core of naturopathic theory [...] Dr. Sensenig presented 'Back to the Future: Reintroducing Vitalism as a New Paradigm [!? p.030...] naturopathic philosophy is the foundation and heart of naturopathic medicine [p.031...] box 3-1. Working definition of naturopathic medicine [...] naturopathic medicine is distinguished by the principles that underlie and determine its practice. These principles include the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix nature) [...] the clinical theory that governs the selection and application of these [naturopathic] modalities, captured in the unifying definition adopted in 1989 [...] the first element of this theory is based upon the first defining principle: vis medicatrix naturae [p.032...] the role of the physician is to facilitate this self-healing process [p.033...] the determinants of health [...] the naturopathic physician evaluates the patient [...] first in the spirit [...] the removal of the obstacles to cure [...] allows the action of the vis medicatrix naturae, the vital force, the healing power of nature. This is the first step in the hierarchy of healing and what naturopathic physicians may call the overarching clinical theory of naturopathic medicine: the therapeutic order [...] the therapeutic order is a natural hierarchy of therapeutic intervention [...] it is the natural ordering of the modalities of naturopathic medicine and their application [p.034...] box 3-3 [...] stimulate the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): the self-healing process [...] harmonize with your life force [...] in this step, the physician is essentially 'removing the obstacles to cure, and allowing the vis medicatrix naturae to do its work' [...] what we might call integrity. Humans are spiritual beings. They are spirits that reside within bodies. Though the general purview of the physician is the body, that instrument cannot be separated from the spirit, which animates it. If the spirit is disturbed, the body cannot be fundamentally healthy. Hahnemann, the brilliant founder of homeopathy, instructs physicians thus. Disturbance in the spirit permeates the body and eventuates in physical manifestation. Physicians are responsible for perceiving such and addressing them. At colleges of naturopathic medicine in Australia and North America, faculty work with naturopathic medicine students to develop their ability to perceive the spiritual nature of an individual [...] this is a foundational skill in addressing spirituality and health [...] spiritual disharmony, inappropriate diet, digestive disturbance, stress, and toxemia are primary causes of chronic illness [...] a good spiritual connection [p.035...] stimulate the self-healing mechanisms [...] to apply stimulation to the self-healing mechanisms. The basis of this approach is the underling recognition of the vis medicatrix naturae, the tendency of the body to be self-healing [...] many naturopathic modalities can be used to stimulate the overall vital force [...] homeopathy and acupuncture are primary methods of such stimulation [...per] Pizzorno and Snider [...] 'we exist as part of complex patters of matter, energy, and spirit' [...] exposure to appropriate rhythms, patterns, and forces of nature strengthens vitality and stimulates the healing power of nature [...] Dr. Pizzorno's work in Total Wellness and the work of 'functional medicine' leader Jeffery Bland, PhD [...] these strategies are used to restore optimal function to an entire physiologic system (immune, cardiovascular, detoxification, life force, endocrine, etc.) [p.036...] much pathologic expression is the result of the actual self-healing mechanisms, such as inflammation, suppressive measures are, in general, anti-vis medicatrix naturae [...] this therapeutic hierarchy is based on the observation of the nature of healing and the inherent order of the healing process. It is part of a unifying theory of naturopathic medicine, an outgrowth of the principles which underlie naturopathic thinking. It provides the physician with instructions [...] the consensus definition of naturopathic medicine, adopted by the AANP in 1989, is a statement of identity, distinguishing naturopathic medicine [...] a clinical theory of naturopathic medicine [...] the nature of health and of disease and of the nature of healing [...] human illness [...] its process as a n expression of the vis medicatrix naturae [...] the patient as a whole being: spiritual, mental / emotional, and physical [...] ultimately, it satisfies Hahnemann's observation [p.038...] Hippocrates' writings on the vis medicatrix naturae form a foundation that historically underpin development of this theory [p.039]";
