Tribute by: Dr. Pamela Snider

Dear Friends,

Heartbroken to share this. I received a call from Josh Levitt ND in CT an hour ago. Our beloved friend and colleague Jim Sensenig apparently passed peacefully in his sleep. His son found him.

Our dear brother, our respected colleague and comrade in arms, beloved fierce leader, inspiration and light bearer of the heart of naturopathic medicine and vitalism.

Where he is now surrounded with Great Love… my prayers for his peace and tears for missing him and all he is join with yours in this incredibly sad moment. This great loss.

Pamela Snider, ND, Executive & Senior Editor, Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Institute (FNMI)

“Jim was a beacon for naturopathic medicine in the Northeast US and champion for the voices of its elders. He leaves a tremendous void in the FNMI project, but will witness completion of his work from afar. My thoughts and prayers for peace go to all of you, and to Jim’s family, as you gather strength to continue the work and to live with his presence in your hearts.”

“It is difficult to write a tribute to someone who filled such a big space in the evolution of our profession; Adding to Joe’s words:
Dr. Jim Sensenig: A friend and colleague, whose commitment to maintaining and teaching the heart of Naturopathic Medicine, will be sorely missed.”
Don Warren, ND, Senior Editor, Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Institute (FNMI)

“This is dreadfully sad news to wake to this Monday morning. Jim’s passing will leave a great void in which he upheld the core principles of naturopathic medicine to the brim and beyond. It was a great privilege to work with a man of such conviction and wisdom on our noble project and his loss will be keenly felt, not only by our Senior Editor team, but by the whole naturopathic community. Our thoughts and prayers go now to his whole family.”
Roger (Newman- Turner) Senior Editor, Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Institute (FNMI)

Deep sorrow, deep respect, deep love, great affection, deep gratitude.

Deepest joy to you in the arms of the angels my beloved friend, comrade, leader, inspiration, professor, force of nature, true Physician.
I miss you and hold you in my heart.

Your candle shines all around and high above us, a brilliant beacon eternally for the Vis Medicatrix Naturae.

🕯🙏🏼 We will remember the Vis, you and the Medicine
