Credits to Some Key Teachers and Clinical Researchers
My undergraduate basic sciences, life sciences and my trainings in schools after these are the groundwork on which I stand. "Scientific Naturopathy" has a growing tradition of commitment to careful documentation of methods of assessment and treatment of human illness. It is my deep belief that the sciences of acumeridian and energy medicine treatments will be accepted parts of the future model used by medical doctors. The researchers/clinicians below are adding to this kind of work.
The synthesis I have made is due in large part to the work of practitioners such as Yoshiaki Omura, M.D. [see his web site], Sc. D.; Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., Ph.D.; Mark McClure, D.D.S.; Doug Phillips, D.D.S.; Lowell Weiner, D.D.S., John Upledger, D.O. Some internet references relating to the kind of work they are promoting include:
American Academy of Neural Therapy [Articles library page]. They all paved the way for the work of Samuel Hahnemann, M.D. as correctly translated by Steven Decker and clinically verified by Rudolf Verspoor, DMH: Dean of the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst & Homeopathy.
These practitioners have various contributions available on the Internet that can be discovered with a search engine. They are doing work that is practical and directed at clinical success; it is my hope that someday there will be huge research projects directed at finding key aspects of their work that can be duplicated by practitioners worldwide. Their premises (as I see them) are ones that include both the physical aspect of human health and healing and the more energy-based aspect of human function. Though they may not put it this way, I think their work will be held valid in light of the Energy-Medicine Paradigm I hope will soon be widely accepted in the healthcare field.
I will say, and these practitioners would as well, that their work is not the whole of the synthesis. Their work draws on several disciplines, some of which are ancient. To fully understand their work, a person would do well to study acupuncture and quantum physics as well as the scientific foundational areas of anatomy, neurology, physiology, psychology, pharmacology, herbology, and several others. I would say that we all are continually reappraising what has gone before and synthesizing the best into our integrative treatment of each patient.
A Quote About Progress in Human Knowledge:
"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants."
Sir Isaac Newton, the famous physicist, mathematician and more... wrote this in a letter to his colleague Robert Hooke, dated 5 February 1676.
The concept reflects the earlier comment of Bernard of Chartes, who is credited with the first usage of "on the shoulders of giants" in about 1130.. "We are like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants so that we can see more than they, and things at a greater distance not by virtue of any sharpness of sight on our part, or any physical distinction but because we are carried high and raised up by their giant size."
The Unseen Aspects of Life:
Besides the physical part of life, I am committed to supporting people in the parts of their lives that are not visible. This can be called the energy or spiritual part of life. At the same time as I give credit to many scientists and researchers, I also acknowledge the countless people who have influenced my life through their writings, events that I attended and personal experiences that we shared. A few include:
Emma Bezy, MSW, Director of the Spirituality, Health & Medicine Department at Bastyr University.
Rudi Verspoor, DMH, Dean of the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst & Homeopathy.

John Upledger, D.O.: An Exceptional Practitioner Who Started With Mainstream Medicine and Expanded His Approach to Include "Energy Medicine" He is in between "mainstream" and "holistic" medicine--
Time magazine cites Dr. Upledger as one of the top 100 Innovators in alternative medicine.
Other therapies Dr. Upledger actively uses: I see these as Energy Medicine.
