"we believe in the vital force, which has inherent organization, in intelligent and intelligible [...] we have vis medicatrix naturae. Our way is to research the mystery and beauty of the life force, in which we have faith. Our power and our responsibility is to bring the life force into the light";

"the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians defines Naturopathic Medicine as 'a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process [...] the following principles are the foundation of naturopathic medical practice: [#1] the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment this inherent self-healing process [...] acknowledge, respect, and work with individuals’ self-healing process'";

"naturopathic doctors [...] practice is always grounded in the six core principles of naturopathy [...] healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): naturopathic treatments work in harmony with the immune system to increase strength and vitality.

[in “What is Homeopathy" (2010)]
.
“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”;
