"I’m an associate of NMI because it’s important to me to be in community with other like-minded nature-cure vitalistic practitioners. It’s only in our larger community that we can widely spread our message to the greater public!"

Dr. Mazen Atassi, ND

Dr. Jessica Cooper, ND

Dr. Danielle Currey, ND

Dr. Christina Bjorndal, ND

Dr. Teresa True, ND, VNMI

Dr. Ashlyn Zikmund, ND

“I chose to become an associate of NMI because it is the single most supportive, inspiring, and clinically helpful naturopathic organization around. I was a student member for 3 years while I was in med school and it gave me hope that there were doctors practicing naturopathic medicine they way I wanted to, from the roots. After graduation it wasn’t even a consideration to be come an associate, it was always part of the plan. I am continually inspired by the members, organizers, and leaders and would not be as confident or deeply rooted in the core of the medicine if not for NMI.”

Dr. Santiago Nevarez, ND, LAc

Doctor

"I joined the NMI at a period of time when I was confused in the way that I wanted to practice. I had gone to many seminars of different therapeutic modalities that I wanted to use, but I had no way of applying them in a systematic way to treat my future patients. Then comes the NMI and provides me a framework which focused on the “why” am I doing a treatment instead of the “how”. For example, I wanted to use a combination of diet, nutrition, acupuncture and physical medicine, which by themselves are excellent tools, but as a student in a very overwhelming naturopathic program, was a bit difficult to implement. The NMI provided me the philosophy of our founders and the varied experience of our elders who have decades practicing our medicine. It gave me a community to ask questions and the confidence, as a budding naturopathic physician, that I could provide excellent care to my patients despite the condition that they showed coming through the door."

"I’m an associate of NMI because it’s important to me to be in community with other like-minded nature-cure vitalistic practitioners. It’s only in our larger community that we can widely spread our message to the greater public!"

Dr. S. Raheel Haque, ND

Doctor

“After finding out about NMI and joining in on the Vital Conversation, I realized that this is exactly what I was looking for. The immense healing power of the body and philosophical underpinnings of our medicine that make it unique and universally applicable to human suffering was clearly demonstrated by the elders in the naturopathic community who I connected with through the NMI. The NMI has enlivened my passion for creating optimal healing environments in my patients and it has taught be how to do that. I will always be indebted to the scholarship and clinical experience of those who upheld the vitalistic principles though the organized efforts of the NMI.”

Dr. Paul Theriault, ND, VNMI

Doctor

"I'm a member of the NMI because its one of the few organizations actively teaching vitalism to new generations of Naturopathic doctors, and for the community it generates. Finally I have a community of NDs on the same wavelength as myself, and an institution for propagating the body of knowledge we've all built together."

Dr. Nadene Johnson, ND

Doctor

“I first heard about NMI in my last year of naturopathic medical school at NUHS and knew that I had to be part of this. I had been looking for people who believed as I did, in the foundational, simple, and elegant health solutions found in the practices of the Naturopathic Elders. I use Lindlahr's pillars in all my thinking and analysis of my cases. Having the resources through NMI, to just be able to read and see how other doctors handle their cases; to hear concerns, and info on herbs, homeopathy and hydrotherapy is invaluable. I feel as though this education is almost worth more than my medical school education, because it is so steeped in the vitalist tradition.”
