"naturopathic acupuncture is part of a system of healing that has been practiced in China and other East Asian countries for over 2500 years [...]  Chinese medicine is a comprehensive system for the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic disorders [...] according to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy - known as qi [...] moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. Qi consists of equal and opposite qualities - yin and yang [...] by inserting fine needles into the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore its natural balance. The flow of qi can be disturbed by a number of factors [...] the aim is to discover which energy channels need adjusting for your specific complaint to improve, and which require treatment to boost your overall energy and vitality [...] the acupuncturist may supplement the needle treatment with moxa, a smouldering herb which is used to warm acupuncture points to encourage the body’s energy to flow smoothly";

"homeopathy is an energetic form of medicine which harnesses the body’s ability to heal itself. This innate healing ability is believed to be a function of the life force, or vital force, inherent in each individual. According the homeopathy, disease is a disturbance of this vital force and the associated symptoms reflect the nature of this disturbance. Homeopathic medicine [...] aims at correcting this disturbance by using minute amounts of natural substances to enable the body to heal itself";

 "the knowledge that unseen energy flows through all living things and directly corresponds to one’s quality of life, is part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The source of health is ‘qi’ energy which flows through and around each of us, animating the physical organs and tissues. If the flow of qi is disrupted, the physical organs and tissues will be adversely affected [...] it is a disruption in the flow of qi that is the main cause of illness [...] ‘universal life force energy’, reiki [...] allows the practitioner to unblock disruptions in the natural flow of qi, tapping into this unseen life force energy to improve health and enhance quality of life [...] allowing a normal healthy flow of qi to resume. Physical organs and tissues will then become properly nourished by qi and begin to function in a balanced fashion, therefore restoring you to health";

"traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated over five thousand years ago and involves the use of both acupuncture and eastern herbs. It is based on the theory that health is determined by a balanced flow of qi, the vital life energy present in all living things. According the TCM theory, qi circulates in the body through twelve major energy pathways, called meridians, each linked to specific internal organs and organ systems. Acupuncture and herbs are used to stimulate or enhance the flow of qi in certain meridians and release an excess of energy in others, therefore rebalancing the flow of energy and consequently relieving pain and restoring health";

"the application of this therapy is based on the theory of qi (energy) flow and its pathway (meridians). In this theory, disease is considered to be the result of energy imbalance. This imbalance can be corrected by putting needles into certain energy gates (acu-points) and by manipulating these needles in specific ways [...] Chinese medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine. The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy behind all life forms and life processes. They called this energy qi [...] in developing an understanding of the prevention and treatment of disease, these healing practitioners discovered that this energy flows along specific pathways called 'meridians'. Each pathway is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ. Disease is considered to arise due to a deficiency or imbalance of energy in the meridians and their associated physiological systems. Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridians. Each point has a predictable effect upon the vital energy passing through it";

"acupuncture is a medical and therapeutic practice that originated in China over 5,000 years ago. It affects health by regulating the flow of 'qi' (chee) which is the vital life force or energy present in all living organisms. Qi circulates in the body along 12 major energy pathways known as meridians [...] linked to specific tissues, organs and glands. Hundreds of acupuncture points, or acupoints, exist within the meridian system that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of qi. When special acupuncture needles are inserted into these points, they help correct and regulate the flow of energy and consequently relieve pain and/or restore health";

"practitioners explain how and why acupuncture works by using the traditional Chinese concepts of yin, yang and qi ('chee'). Qi is loosely translated as the body’s energy or vital life-force. Its meaning is both the motive force with which the entire body functions and the combination of all the organs’ functions and other factors that make up the body’s overall health.It is the qi as it flows through meridians or channels that is being assessed and treated during a session. And because of this direct treatment of organ function, TCM achieves significant results [...] these accumulations of static qi are the root of disease and dysfunction";

[in “My Healing Philosophy – Rebalancing the Patient”]
.
“the role of VNM [sp., VMN] in healing. Naturopathic physicians call our vital force vis medicatrix naturae (VMN) or the 'healing power of nature.' Through our regular connection and communication with the VMN (via prayer, meditation, focusing on love and positive thoughts, eating whole foods, maintaining adequate hydration, rest and sleep, the use of biomagnetics, bioresonance and other physical medicine techniques, homeopathy, herbal medicine, etc.) we can increase and optimize our vibrant energy in all three major aspects, and help ourselves to heal. It is important for the patient to understand just how much control they individually have over their own health and wellness. The physician or healer acts as a catalyst or prompter in this process. The natural therapeutics that I use in this process are in accordance with the Principles of Naturopathic Medicine ['ND sectarian creed'] and according to the Hierarchy of Therapeutics [ND sectarian 'therapeutic order']. Some patients may turn down the opportunity to use their full power to heal and improve health. This may often be because physical disease affects the mind and spirit in a such a way that spiritual communication with the VMN is broken. Secondary gains for experiencing illness (imbalance) may also be present (avoidance, attention, etc.). It is also possible that 'life lessons' and/or 'karma' may also be at work, thus delaying healing. Real healing requires communication with the VNM [sp., VMN], which has no limitations. It is possible to create matter where none existed before, to reconnect biological and biochemical pathways or balance the entire system for better health. Matter is also transmutational (changed from one form to another). By connecting with VMN (as creative source/god), we can create and remain in the healing energy of love and peace (higher vibrant energy) anytime we wish. When communication with VMN is clear and the timing is right, healing can occur and health can improve. My blessing and privilege as a naturopathic physician is to help the patient to learn how to best optimize their own interaction with VMN”;

As a person moves away from health, or you eat foods you're intolerant or sensitive to, that energy level is one of the first things to be affected.
