...In Support of a Healthy World

PROJECT CONTEXT

THERE IS A GROWING TREND IN GLOBAL HEALTH CARE, TODAY. What began with an increased focus on system and payment reform in many nations has now become a renewed interest in promoting health in individuals and in communities. Healthcare systems in many countries are failing to meet the healthcare needs of populations, and continue to provide care that exceeds their economic capacity. Consequently, many nations are re-directing healthcare systems and the concept of 'health' to focus on promoting health, rather than fighting disease. The vision of naturopathic medicine and of the Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Project is to advance the health of individuals, communities, and support a healthy environment, through innovation in scientific research and clinical practice, based on investigating and understanding the nature of the healing process.

The Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine (FNM) Projectis an international collaboration of more than 300 authors, editors, colleges, and agencies in the naturopathic medical community dedicated to developing a comprehensive textbook for naturopathic and integrative medical education in response to needs expressed by the naturopathic medical education, clinical, and scientific communities. The textbook is being developed through a series of recurring symposia, with participation from practicing clinicians, mentors and elder physicians, and naturopathic medical students. The complex and comprehensive nature of this textbook makes it the first of its kind within naturopathic medicine. To be effective, naturopathic physicians must be well-trained healers, competent primary and specialty care providers, and must be fluent in applying naturopathic philosophy, concepts, and evidence to clinical practice, public policy, and medical education.


Who we are

Why is this important?

The Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine textbook is more than a compilation of existing information — it also represents an unprecedented and collegial process of international discussion, examination, debate, and synthesis. It is the profession’s first attempt in 100 years to codify and articulate the philosophy, principles, clinical theory, models, scientific advances, and public policy implications that comprise naturopathic medicine. This process of codification would remain inconsequential without a successful method to communicate and disseminate these ideas to a broader healthcare and patient community.
