This book reflects an important symbol of change within older medical paradigm; integrative medicine is the way of the future, and the A-Z Healing Arts Guide is right on the forefront of that change. Finally, a much needed comprehensive guide to an emerging medical field. Thanks for writing this!
And I quote, from the naturopathy chapter:
"naturopathic medicine is an integrative and vitalistic medical system [...] there are seven principles of modern naturopathy [...#2] respect the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae). There is an innate healing force within all life that is always attempting to prevent and/or heal every possible illness [...a] 'life force' [...] naturopaths help their patients to optimize this innate force [p.119...] most medical systems in place before the rise of modern western medicine [...] were 'vitalistic' in nature, meaning that a spiritual 'vital force' or 'life force' was believed to be both the source of existence and the essential healing force for every person. Ayurveda's 'prana,' Chinese medicine's 'chi,' and Hippocrates' 'humours' are all versions of the vital force [p.120]."
I highly recommend this chapter for anyone interested the the central article of faith of in this form of sectarian medicine.
