A Vitalist understands the powerful, innate healing potential of the human body. Over 100 years ago, Dr. Henry Lindlahr wrote Nature Cure, a cornerstone text of modern naturopathy, and put forth the Laws of Cure, three simple, yet elegant “rules” to restore health:

  • remove obstacles to cure
  • give the body what it needs to be well
  • stimulate the vital force

Building on the philosophy of VG1 and the cornerstones of health from VG2, our next gathering, VG3, will dive deeper into assessing an individual to determine obstacles to health and treatments options to stimulate the body’s self-healing.

Are you an ND or student interested in becoming part of a growing community meeting an increasing public demand for vitalistic naturopathic medicine?

Are you interested in being involved in sharing and learning from experienced ND’s such as Jared Zeff, Jim Sensenig, Letititia Dick-Kronenberg, Thomas Kruzel, Mona Morstein, Rick Kirschner, Chris Turner, Lori von der Heydt, Daniel Young, Charley Cropley, Louise Edwards, Jim Massey, Judith Boice, Holly Castle and more!

The NMI has created a means to preserve the legacy of vitalistic naturopathic medicine – join us!

The NMI will also donate a percentage of all registrations back to the NWNPC!
