Some conditions that do not respond well to conventional medicine respond effectively to homeopathy [...] the key principle that defines and connects all of Chinese medicine is that of chi, or vital energy. The chi of all organs must be in balance, neither too active nor too dormant, for a person to be healthy. The chi of the body's organs and systems are all connected in meridians or channels that lie just under the skin. A naturopathic doctor will use Eastern herbs and acupuncture to assist the body in regulating the chi and achieving balance";

"the immune system, endocrine (hormonal) system, nervous system, detoxification and elimination systems, and circulatory system are all mechanisms upon which a body relies to stay well in the face of these challenges. Since these must all operate harmoniously to maintain health, we recognize them as one well orchestrated-system. In homeopathy we call the system the 'life force.' When the life force is not equal to its challenges, disease sets in. Our job as homeopaths, then, is to stimulate optimal function of the life force and to identify and minimize those challenges as listed above";
