“the vital force is a level at which homeopathic remedies work. An imbalance or susceptibility of the vital force is what allows chronic disease to develop. Chronic disease consists of anything other than trauma […] the vital force is that energetic force which maintains the normal functioning, balance, or ‘homeostasis’ of the body. It really does nothing more. It is not strong enough to overcome chronic unrelenting diseases that we are more commonly seeing in animals and people. If the vital force were strong enough, we would not have these chronic situations to begin with […] acupuncture, for example, works on the same level as homeopathic remedies and therefore could potentially interfere. Chiropractic, swim therapy, glandular extracts, and physical therapy will all work well with homeopathy […] we know that vaccines affect both the immune system and the vital force on a very deep level and do tend to bring out chronic disease more intensely. Autism in children is now thought to be caused by vaccination”;

"naturopathic medicine is a holistic, eclectic approach to healing that honors the healing power of nature. Naturopathic medicine holds the philosophy that we have it within ourselves all we need to heal, and therapies used are in support of that process of healing body, mind and spirit. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to support the healing power of nature";

"qi [...] is the energetic force that gives us our capacity to move, think, feel, and work [...] qi circulates within the body through pathways called channels (or meridians) [...] health exists when adequate qi flows smoothly through the channels.  Symptoms like joint pain, headache, anxiety, fatigue, PMS, hypertension, asthma, indigestion, etc. occur when the circulation of qi is disrupted [...] the goal of TCM is to adjust and harmonize yin and yang [...] acupuncture is based on the knowledge that qi flows through different channels in the body and at times gets stagnant or congested [...] thin sterile acupuncture needles are inserted into these acupuncture points in order to mobilize the qi throughout the channels, to relieve the imbalanced flow, and stimulate proper functioning of organs and systems [...] after the insertion of the needle, different people feel different sensations – tingling, numbness, aching, warmth, heaviness, cramping – as the qi is stimulated by the needle and begins to flow";

"another foundation principle of homeopathy is the belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, termed the 'vital force.' This vital force expresses disease of the organism in symptoms (fever, hives, vomiting) [...] sometimes the vital force 'gets stuck' [...] the remedy symptoms fade the vital force [...] the remedies have a very minimal dose, just enough to cause an effect in the vital force";

"in TCM theory, one of the functions of the lungs is to extract qi from air, using it to nourish the tissues and internal processes. Part of this qi, along with the qi from food, goes to build defensive qi. This qi is similar to the Western concept of the immune system. Indeed, because the lungs interact directly with the outside environment, they play a very important role in fighting off external pathogens. The beta-carotenes in winter squash help boost the qi of the lungs and can help to ward off respiratory conditions like coughs/colds!";

[in "Services" (2017)]

"for thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine has acknowledged that qi, which means vital life force or in the west often referred to as 'energy', flows through all things. Energy (qi) flows along pathways (known as meridians) in the human body which are related to the organs and the tendo-muscular systems. When the balance of this energy is disturbed due to either trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, environmental factors, or to excessive emotional issues, pain or illness results. Traditional Chinese medicine focuses on correcting these energetic imbalances by breaking up any obstruction and encouraging an even flow of qi, which stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself";

"this attitude about wellness comes from our basic naturopathic beliefs, based on principles of vitalism [p.020...] naturopathic medicine [...] is based on the philosophy of vitalism. Vitalism maintains that life is more than a complex series of chemical and physical reactions. It relies on the belief that there is a soul, that which makes us breathe, that coordinates and organizes these reactions. This force, or vitalism, allows an organism to develop, reproduce, and repair itself [p.021...] Dr. Hahnemann and the vital force. The term 'the healing power of nature' (vis medicatrix naturae) [...] more than any other healing art of naturopathic medicine, homeopathy is founded upon this philosophy [...] at the core of this philosophy is vitalism [...] the belief that there is an unknowable inner essence, an energy which animates everything we call life. It is the individualized spirit, the vital force, the soul. The soul is the force [...] hold your breath for as long as you can and you will see how the vital force forces you to breathe. It coordinates bodily functions [...and] regulates the processes involved in health and disease, gives life and energy to our emotions, and allows us to have thought and reasoning [p.051...] the defense mechanism is part of the vital force [...] when the stimuli are ordinary and routine, we are not aware of any changes in the vital force [p.052...] the vital force is the electromagnetic field of the human body [...] the energy of the vital force [...] Dr. Hahnemann understood that in order to affect the vital force, a substance's energy must be compatible with that of the vital force [...] substances [that] would match the same signs and symptoms exhibited by the defense mechanism [p.055...] once the homeopathic remedy is administered to the patient, it elicits a reaction from the vital force [etc....] Hahnemann [...] based the reaction on natural law [p.056...] the stronger artificial agent [...] the medicinal force [...] takes hold of the vital force, and the person gets well again [p.057...] Dr. D'Adamo knew that blood was the life force of our bodies [p.082...] vitalism: a philosophy at the core of naturopathy and homeopathy, holding that life is more than a series of biochemical reactions; but rather life, and all of the reactions that sustain life, is coordinated and organized by a force or spirit [p.256]";

This specialized branch of herbal medicine uses only the flower - the highly potent and vital seed-bearing organ of the plant - and only non-toxic plants. It was discovered that the vital energy of these flowers could be extracted via water, e.g. raindrops or dew on blossoms, which is exposed to direct sunlight and then highly diluted";
