The primary mission of the Confederation of Practitioners in Gentle Medicine of Quebec (CPMDQ) is to bring together a large number of members who share a common interest in promoting the self-healing of the body through the application of natural and holistic methods for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. 


In their multidisciplinary practices, the CPMDQ’s practicing members encompass their patients on all levels of being because they assume that the human being, in the globality and “wholeness” that characterize him or her, can express himself or herself on different levels: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, energetic, socio-cultural and even planetary (ecology).

The Confederation’s mission is also to bring together union federations, professional unions and union premises. 

Alternative medicine: definition, benefits and practices 

Alternative medicine or natural medicine takes into consideration all aspects of the person and seeks to act, not on the symptom, but on the cause. Primarily a preventive medicine, alternative medicine aims to maintain and/or restore health through natural means such as exercise, breathing, relaxation, healthy eating, herbal medicine, homeopathy, manual therapy, soul therapy, etc.  

The practitioner of alternative medicine seeks to restore the self-healing abilities inherent in each person and his or her approach is to build on the strengths in order to counterbalance the weaknesses. To this end, the practitioner of alternative medicine establishes a vitality assessment, which is not a diagnosis but which intends, by various natural means, to measure the level of vitality, to estimate the overloads and deficiencies to stimulate and reinforce these capacities.

The practitioner of alternative medicine has a double mission, that of a therapist, who allows the person to regain health, and that of a health educator, who gives advice on vital hygiene, with the aim of keeping the person healthy in the long term. A practitioner of alternative medicine must not create dependency with his clients but rather guide them on the path to health by making them actors of their own health, in an autonomous way.
