OutsideDoc provides communities with Natural Medicine SelfCare plans congruent with their local permaculture practices. Following Vis Medicatrix Naturae (The Healing Power of Nature), OutsideDoc recognizes the body’s inherent ability to heal itself and offers physician mentored, SelfCare plans that take people outside to re-connect with nature. Philanthropic focus will foster organic garden production, promote collection and resale of local organic seed banks and create and support community permaculture practices. By 2020, with corporate sponsorship, grants and organic, artisan merchandise revenue, OutsideDoc hopes to offer the SelfCare Plan and its mentored physician programs for free.
Permaculture, or permanent (agri)culture, means working with natural forces – wind, sun, & water – to provide food, shelter, water & other needs with minimum labor & without depleting the land. Permaculture is a holistic approach based on traditional agricultural practices.
