INM: A Name You Can Trust

INM’s vision is bold. Your support will influence the health of Americans for generations to come by teaching our youngest to our most elderly communities healthy habits, and doing so encourages them to be change agents in their immediate and extended families. 

INM seeks to create and disseminate research demonstrating the efficacy of whole-person medicine, inspire a movement of accessible good health, and complement our conventional system with a mind-body-spirit approach that prioritizes diet, lifestyle, and nutrition. We see a future where every clinic is integrated with knowledgeable practitioners specializing in whole person health. 

Americans deserve to be healthy, and there are integrative experts and therapies ready to support them.

We believe that whole person medicine, with its unique principles and practices, has the potential to reverse the tide of chronic illness that overwhelms existing healthcare systems and to empower people to achieve and maintain their optimal lifelong health, all while costing individuals and the government fewer dollars.

The end goal: Reduce healthcare costs, improve healthcare outcomes.

Whole person healthcare is the integrative approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing processes. INM works diligently to promote and advance forward this key to healing our nation’s sickness at both a microscopic and macro level. 

We do this by strengthening the field of whole person medicine from the inside by facilitating robust intra-professional communication and supporting alliance-building across healthcare professions. INM already supports a wide variety of activities related to our 3 pillars: public education, access to natural medical care, and expanding evidence-based research. 

Your support will…

  • Bring the medicine of nature to institutions, homes, and lives all over North America.
  • Elevate the research, writing, and marketing for INM to become the #1 trusted resource for natural medicine information for both public and professional groups.
  • Assist in creating platforms that enable public-ready access to licensed, knowledgeable, integrative professionals.
  • Fund the collection and publishing of evidence-based research on chronic disease to demonstrate the efficacy of whole person medicine in America.
  • Forever shift the paradigm for health care by offering sustainable, affordable, long-term, solutions to the American health crisis

Legacy Giving

Natural medicine was once all humans had to heal themselves. We have come a long way since then, and modern medicine is a marvel. And still, the inherent ability of our bodies to heal remains core to keeping and attaining vitality and optimal health. Naturopathic Medicine calls this vital force the Vis Medicatrix Naturae, the healing power of nature. The power of the medicine of nature is still showing us its secrets. The Institute for Natural Medicine (INM) is dedicated to helping bring this power back into healthcare and raising awareness of those providers that practice in a holistic, inclusive way to deliver true whole person health.  

If you agree that natural and integrative medicine deserves to be front and center as options to not only prevent disease but promote health, we hope you will join the Vis Society and help solidify this healthier future for your family and loved ones. INM created the Vis Society to honor those who have chosen to shape the destiny of whole person health by benefiting the Institute for Natural Medicine through their estate plans.

Estate planning doesn’t need to be as daunting as most think.

Please consider making a legacy gift to support our movement. Let’s continue to act together and carry forward the transformative work initiated by the founders of naturopathic medicine and the natural medicine movement that began over 100 years ago. We look forward to welcoming you to the Vis Society.
