Dr Jim Sensenig, ND

NDNR is deeply saddened to share the news of the untimely passing of Dr. Jim Sensenig. Dr. Sensenig, who passed away over the weekend in his sleep, was a founder and one of the original board members of the AANP, along with several other naturopathic organizations, including his work with the Naturopathic Medicine Institute, and NDNR. A pillar in the naturopathic profession, his loss will be felt by many.

The AANP will be coordinating with other organizations in the community to create a space and time where we can come together to grieve and share memories of this legend, and will keep you informed as we have more details.

    He was not “a” founder of the AANP. He was “the” founder. And his final institutional creative action was to found the Naturopathic Medicine Institute, where, out of concern for the drift towards allopathy happening in our schools, he engaged our doctors and invited the profession and our students to join with the Institute and help fulfill its mission to preserve, protect, present and promote the vitalistic core of Naturopathy for the sake and benefit of humanity. Jim Sensenig labored in and for our field and played a pivotal role in the lives of so many of us. He “died with his boots on, “ as he would have described this passing, and modeled courage and devotion to principle for us all.

    I meant Jim as a student at bastyr in the late 80s and early 90s and he introduced himself as one of Dr. Bastyr’s devoted students. I liked him from that moment on and as we grew in the profession from every moment that I knew him. He was a wonderful teacher mentor friend and Buddy too many in the naturopathic community. As well as a true devoted student of Dr. Bastyr’s whom they are now together. Fly well my friend, until we meet again.
