Dr. James (Jim) Sensenig devoted his life to the advancement of the naturopathic profession. He was the founder of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), the US national professional organization, and co-founder of the Institute for Natural Medicine (INM), an organization aimed at engaging philanthropy and raising public awareness of the naturopathic profession. He was one of the four doctors who established the Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine Institute (FNMI) to codify, preserve, strengthen and advance naturopathic medicine’s unique philosophy, principles and theory of practice. Additionally, Dr. Sensenig founded the Naturopathic Medicine Institute (NMI) to preserve, protect, present and promote the vitalistic core of naturopathy, and to call the profession back to its roots. He was a vital force behind the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME), Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examination (NPLEX) and so much more. Dr. Sensenig played a pivotal role in the lives of so many. His vision, courage, keen intelligence, and coherent voice remain an example for us all. Too soon he has left us, but he has left a powerful legacy.
