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

Join NMI Senior Vitalist Dr. Thomas Kruzel as he discusses a number of topics including posology, homeoprophylaxis, case taking strategies and more. Many naturopathic physicians who do not use homeopathy as part of their therapeutic regimen cite the hours of study required to master this complex subject and an emphasis by some of the medical colleges to produce “world class” homeopaths. 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.
