Holistic Counseling Foundations Course
with Moshe Daniel Block, ND, VNMI, HMC

Live Weekend Course, 18 hours with OBNM.
$450.00 (Early bird specials available)

“Discord in the mind is translated into physical disease in the body…”
Dr. Henry Lindlahr “Nature Cure”

Learn how to heal even physical pathology with mind-body counseling

The body reflects our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.  Suppressed emotions can be expressed as physical symptoms and negative beliefs can cause illness and inhibit deep healing. This Holistic Counseling Foundations course will teach you a simple and powerful way to dialogue with patients to get to the bottom of their struggles and buried wounds in order to bring about awareness, liberation, and lasting changes to their physical, emotional, and mental health.

This is a transformative and life-changing course for naturopathic doctors and students. You will SEE, EXPERIENCE, and PRACTICE the Vis Dialogue, watch real live cases demonstrated in front of the class, and practice the technique with your classmates. You will also leave with a greater understanding of what unhealthy beliefs are affecting your life and with new skills ready to be integrated immediately into practice.

Come experience the essence of vitalism in naturopathic medicine!

The Vital Gathering III

13 hours CE OBNM, AANP

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, dives deeper into assessing an individual to determine obstacles to health and treatments options to stimulate the body’s self-healing.

The Vital Gathering IV

16 hours General CE OBNM, AANP

The information presented at VG IV was specific to three areas of Vitalistic Naturopathic Medicine – Mind/Body Medicine, Nutrition, and Physical Medicine.  The purpose of this gathering was to dive further into the use of these powerful modalities and clinical pearls in the practice of Vitalistic Naturopathic Medicine.

Communicating principles of the mind and body connection effectively to people can open new pathways to healing. At VG IV, you will learn to help your patients understand how this connection can strengthen the body and stimulate health. You will also learn how to facilitate Mind/Body Medicine in your practice.

Nutrition is a cornerstone of Naturopathic Medicine and the restoration of health. Learning to assess proper nutrition for each individual is key to building/restoring health and disease prevention. Attendees will learn to use food and fasting as therapies as well as how to use and evaluate diet dairies for practical, improved clinical outcomes.

As Naturopathic Doctors, we know the importance of and the passing on of healing through touch. You will learn how to gather information about a person’s level of health- physically, mentally and emotionally- by laying hands on the human body. Attendees will also gain an understanding of what can be sensed through the doctor’s hands and how to use hands for healing.

At the NMI, we are building a thriving, supportive and encouraging community in an effort to preserve, strengthen and teach the legacy of vitalism to the public, students and one another.

Instructors:
Drs. Jim Sensenig, Jared Zeff, Thomas Kruzel, Letitia Dick-Kronenberg, Rick Kirschner, Charley Cropley, Mona Morstein, Aviva Wertkin

3 hours general CE, NANCEAC approved (all states and Canada)

$65
Note: NMI Associates log in for your discounted price

Homeopathic Drainage is often practiced and taught based on high-end boutique Naturopathic practices, with relatively high costs. However, there are methods to practice this therapy quite economically, suitable for patients of all income levels, and offering no diminished effectiveness. Join Dr. Paul Theriault to learn how to extend the effectiveness of drainage therapy to all socioeconomic classes, and for new remedies and assessment methods that he has developed.

Homeopathic Detoxification

Zoom Webinar

This course is very practical in nature. It will be particularly useful for students and practitioners who have found learning the systems of combination homeopathic drainage remedies confusing or frustrating. It is also useful for practitioners who like having several different kinds of tools on hand so they can personalize care even more precisely. Single dose homeopathic drainage is an accessible, cost effective tool that blends very nicely with concomitant herbal therapy. In many respects it is the perfect approach for a practitioner of nature cure.

VC: De-Prescribing Pharmacy Series 2019
with Christie Fleetwood, ND, VNMI, RPh

Webinar, 10 hours Pharm CE, AANP and OBNM. $275

Following in the same pattern as last year’s “Diseases of the Drugs” series, we’ll look at the same Top 100 Drugs in Sales and Top 100 Drugs in Volume, the same diseases for which these drugs are used, but now with an eye to treating those disease states (rather, the people who happen to be experiencing dis-ease) from a vitalistic, naturopathic standpoint. Once the patient is SO STINKIN’ healthy, it becomes clear— through both Subjective and Objective measures—that the patient is over-medicated! This series is designed to help the practitioner know how to safely remove the drugs in question.

Sessions will be recorded and available any time after they complete.

VC: Ethics of Prescribing Mental Health Drugs and Biologics
with Christie Fleetwood, ND, RPh

Webinar, 2 hours Ethics CE, AANP and OBNM. $45

This is the conclusion to the Pharmacy Series looking at the ethical considerations of prescribing mental health drugs and their consequences. Whether you like the drugs or not, write for the drugs or not, your patients are taking them! As naturopathic doctors, our 1st principle is “First, Do No Harm”. While herbs, physical manipulations, homeopathy, and other modalities have the potential to cause harm, prescription drugs out-potential them all.

This aired on VC 10-3-18.

VC: Practical Medicine for NDs – GI System
with Jared Zeff, ND, LAc

Teleconference, 4 hrs gen CE OBNM, AANP. $75

The Gastrointestinal System is based upon Dr. Zeff’s personal experience with what works in practice. Dr. Zeff characterizes a “vitalistic” naturopath as one who relies upon the Vis Medicatrix Naturae to bring about healing, utilizing the traditional tools of the naturopathic physician, predominately diet, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, botanical medicine, and thier hands. These sessions focus upon the gastrointestinal system, and how to quickly, in the clinical setting, assess and treat the common problems NDs see in the office, from hemorrhoids to Crohn’s Disease.

This is a suggested pre-requisite for the Vital Gathering 3.

These aired live on VC May 16 and 23, 2018. This is the same presentation held through Medicine Talk Pro Nov 28, 2016 and Dec 5, 2016.

with Dr. Thomas Kruzel

Teleconference, 2 hours gen CE OBNM, AANP. $45

In this session, Dr. Kruzel shows practitioners how this therapy can be integrated quickly and effectively into practice. The focus is on pediatrics.

Suggested pre-requisite for Vital Gathering 3.

These aired live on VC April 18 and 25, 2018. This is the same presentation held through Medicine Talk Pro Aug 26-27, 2017.
