"practitioners of homeopathy believe that there is an intelligent energy, or 'vital force,' that maintains physiologic balance and promotes healing of the body. This vital force is recognized by Asian and Indian cultures as chi, ki, prana, and life force. Western medicine describes the effects (of the vital force) as immunity, hormonal balance, blood pressure, blood sugar balance, and sleep quality, for example [pseudoscience, for example; these things are themselves and explained materially]. Homeopathic medicines act by stimulating the vital force to revitalize the areas of imbalance. Research suggests that this occurs via electro-magnetic energy";

"Dr. Hannah Albert [ND NCNM], an Island naturopathic physician who specializes in homeopathy [...] in addition to seeing patients in her office in Seattle, Albert offers home visits on Vashon [...] homeopathy aims to treat 'like with like' [...] symptoms are part of the body’s attempt to heal itself [...] medication may be given to support this self-healing response. To make homeopathic prescriptions, substances that cause symptoms similar to the disease in large quantities are heavily diluted — the weaker the dilution, the stronger the remedy. Proponents of homeopathic treatment believe that it can harmonize and re-balance the vital force -- often called chi -- and thereby restore health [...] 'conventional medicine is a necessity for life-threatening conditions' said Albert [...] 'but for the real deep healing that incorporates one’s body, mind and emotional state, I turn to homeopathy and other forms of natural medicine'”;

[in "Acupuncture – How Does it Work?"]
.
"acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that living beings have a vital energy, called 'qi', that circulates through twelve invisible energy lines known as meridians on the body. Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. An imbalance in the flow of qi throughout a meridian is how disease begins. During an acupuncture treatment, tiny needles are inserted into specific points along meridian lines to restore balance to the flow of qi [...] think of meridians as rivers inside your body. Wherever a river flows, it carries water that provides nourishment and sustenance for life. In your body, the water in this river is qi, which flows through meridians as an invisible current, energizing, nourishing, and supporting every cell, tissue, muscle, organ and gland. When qi is balanced and flowing freely, the body’s natural self-healing abilities are activated, enabling internal stability and harmony to occur. On the other hand, the flow of qi can become unbalanced throughout life  [...] different stressors affect meridians in various ways, disrupting or blocking the flow of qi [...] a blockage in the meridians will restrict the supply of qi required to nourish your body’s cells. This blockage can manifest into various signs and symptoms. Over time, the body as a whole becomes weakens, and its self-healing abilities compromised. It then becomes susceptible to pain and illness";

"you always believed your body could heal itself, but every time you went to the doctor you were given an 'anti-'  medicine: anti-biotics, anti-histamines…the list goes on. Now, you just walked out of your consultation with a naturopathic doctor, and guess what? She shares your belief that your body has an innate ability to heal. Based in a variety of world medicine approaches, including the nature cure of Europe, naturopathic doctors utilize natural therapies to stimulate and support your body’s healthy functioning. Naturopathy assists the body in balancing its systems through herbs, nutrition, bodywork/massage, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and more";

"principles of Chinese medicine are based on the fundamental concept that the physical, spiritual and emotional body are connected in their function, and that a network of energy called qi (pronounced 'chee') flows thru [sp., through] all aspects of the body [...] energy called qi flows through the body in channels called 'meridians'. Most of these channels are named for a physical organ (lung, liver, stomach, etc.) to which it is correlated, though some are named for more abstract concepts or systems in the body. The energy or qi in each of these channels is associated with specific tissues, areas, and functions of the body, as well as with certain emotions, colors, tastes and smells [...] acupuncture is considered to be relatively painless, however, with correct stimulation the movement of qi may be felt by the patient. Qi sensations vary widely and may be described as heaviness, distention, tingling or electric. These sensations may be only at the location of the needle or they may travel up or down the meridian (energy pathway). These sensations are a sign that the patient’s qi is adjusting towards balance";

Energy flows through channels in the body called meridians, is collected and transformed in energy centers called chakras, and radiates through a field of energy around the body called the aura [...] energy balancing assists the smooth flow of life force through all the energy structures and removes energetic obstacles to energy flow [...] homeopathy is an alternative medicine first defined by Samuel Hahnemann in the 1700’s.  Homeopathy believes disease and sickness are caused by a disturbance in the life force (energy) of the person";

"the aura reflects the life force that permeates all things [...] chi is a Chinese body substance that is more energetic than physical and is integral to healthy functioning; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.   It’s loosely translated as vital life force that nourishes every cell in the body.  It travels along meridians and can be accessed through acupoints [...] energy refers to the vital life force, a force that animates and organizes life.  Every culture in the word has a word for life force: chi (qi) in China, ki in Japan, shakti and prana in Hindu, breath of life, etc. [...] meridians  are channels or pathways in the body that transmit the flow of chi [...] acting like energy 'arteries', supplying all parts of the bodymind with chi. Points along the meridians which allow interaction with chi are called acupoints [...] yin, yang and chi form the basis of Chinese medicine [...] the relationship between yin and yang and the flow of chi forms the basis for diagnoses and treatment protocols";

"Asian medicine is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented illness for over 2000 years [...and] can also enhance recuperative power, immunity and the capacity for work and creativity [...] harmony of yin and yang means health while disharmony between yin and yang leads to disease. The strategy of Asian medicine is to restore balance between yin and yang [...] doctors of naturopathic medicine and Asian medicine use acupuncture, herbs and food to recover and sustain health. Just as nature contains air, water, and land, our human body is comprised of qi, moisture and blood. Qi is the animating force that gives us our capacity to move, think and feel [...] qi, moisture and blood circulate with a web of pathways called channels that link together all the parts of the organism. Health exists when adequate qi [...] in Asian medicine, all illness is understood as a consequence of either a depletion or congestion of qi, moisture and blood [...] this is achieved by regulating qi, moisture and blood on the organ networks [...] acupuncture is based on the assumption that qi courses through channels of the body. Every organ network has a corresponding set of channels [... ] with acupuncture these gates are opened or closed to adjust circulation of qi in the channels. Thin, sterile steel acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points to mobilize qi and blood, invigorating the function of muscle, nerves, vessels, glands and organs [...] some patients feel qi moving at a distance from the point of insertion [...] it would be most accurate to say that acupuncture treats disorders of qi, blood, and the organ networks [...] to discover if Asian medicine may be helpful for you, consult your naturopathic doctor";

“some aspects of naturopathy have common ground with other ancient holistic health systems, such as traditional Chinese medicine and ayurveda, which share the belief that the body has an innate power to heal itself. In naturopathy this power is known as the ‘vital force’ […] modern naturopaths believe the body will always strive toward good health, or homeostasis, and that the body is its own best healer. They maintain that many factors, such as an unhealthy diet, a lack of sleep, exercise, or fresh air, any emotional or physical stress, pollution in the environment, even negative attitudes, allow waste products and toxins to build up in the body and upset self ­regulation. This in turn can overload the immune system and weaken the vital force, the body's innate ability to maintain good health. If this vital force is weakened, the body becomes susceptible to viruses, bacteria, and allergens”;
