Dr. Jim Sensenig’s contributions to the restoration of the naturopathic profession and advancement of truly curative medicine were immense. Our profession and the human community owe him a debt of gratitude that can never be adequately expressed and honored.
Jim was relentlessly committed to the foundational principles of curative medicine. He was inspirational to students and young doctors who came to naturopathic medicine because they wanted to cure their patients rather than follow the easy path of palliation and simplistic symptom relief. When he saw too many drift into green drug medicine, he recruited thought leaders to help get the profession back on track. The monthly calls he initiated became a welcome safe space for the many physicians who realized that lack of understanding of the true causes of disease lead to short term apparent relief while allowing, and even aggravating, the real reasons people were suffering.
