Mission

 

Moving Natural Medicine Forward

 

The Run enables interaction with Americans the Naturopathic story, providing the opportunity for millions of Americans to hear true stories from patients of their healing through Naturopathic (Natural) medicine and solutions.

Mission Statement:

To educate and empower Americans about natural health care options to prevent disease, find and treat the cause of illness, and revitalize the nation’s health.

The Run: Moving Natural Medicine Forward, the pilot project of this organization, will cross the United States on foot to promote the causes of naturopathic medicine and other forms of natural medicine throughout America.

These causes include increasing the health of the American people, providing sustainable, quality holistic health care, and educating the public about healthy lifestyle management and health maintenance.  The Run also endeavors to make a clear statement about the benefits of these everyday wellness choices.

These objectives will be accomplished through:

•    Daily press conferences and publicity events
•    A thirty-four day human interest story which will draw attention to the cause

By introducing “naturopathic medicine” into the national vocabulary and making “naturopathic doctor” a household term, this Run will lead to increased health care options for Americans by stimulating interest in naturopathic care and other forms of natural medicine, and encouraging more comprehensive insurance coverage for these alternate primary care choices.
