I've had several different sessions with Joy and regardless of the type of life challenge that prompted me to seek her services, I have always walked away from each session with increased energy, immense clarity, and feeling more resilient and complete. Joy creates a safe space for me to be vulnerable and speak about my situation and I feel completely accepted and understood by her. I love that she can see the blind spots I know are there, but can't quite access. She uses different modalities that touch mind, body, and soul. It's a holistic healing experience that's deep and profound. I would highly recommend scheduling a session with Joy if you're looking for healing of any kind: emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, or relational. She's the real deal and you will feel blessed to have her as an ally in your life.

    My experiences over the past year and a half with Melissa has been many. She has been enlightening, spiritual, professional, personable, but most of all healing. She has brought me into a whole new era of both physical and spiritual well-being. I have had profound experiences in both these areas that has effected me in only a positive way. I cannot describe how much confidence and respect I have gained in her and a world I knew very little about. I can only relay my deepest and most sincere confidence that I have in her as person and healer. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all who may need her, but also in Plant Spirit Medicine in general, and also in MariEl in which I (we) have had much success with also...Lee F.

    About

    Many people think that changing their diet or exercise patterns is the one thing that will bring them health. While these are definitely pieces of the puzzle, they are simply that: pieces. True health means feeling good. For most people, feeling good involves looking at health from a holistic or whole-person perspective, addressing body, mind and spirit. At Morter Wellness Center, Dr. Ted Morter, IV and Dr. Katy Eakle Morter serve Northwest Arkansas with leading-edge healing and wellness technologies. Drs. Ted and Katy are advanced holistic chiropractic physicians, whose practice focuses on balancing physical, emotional and chemical stressors, and the development of healthy daily habits in six essential areas. This leads to the body healing itself as it was designed originally, from the inside out. The Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (TM) (B.E.S.T.) is a technology widely used by healthcare practitioners which works by re-timing messages between the body and the brain to remove outdated subconscious memory patterns. Upper Cervical Specific Technique focuses on the top of the spine, wherein lies the brain stem, the subconscious control of the body. When this area is misaligned, the entire body is affected. Often, an immediate response to the treatment is relief from pain. By touching key pressure points in the proper sequence with the proper energy, and with focus on specific memory stress, high brain interference is removed, and your body will then begin to self-regulate and heal. Your brain controls all functions in your body. When interference is removed, those functions are allowed to work together, and body balance and healing results.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is naturopathic medicine?

    Naturopathic medicine is classified as an alternative healing method, but licensed naturopathic doctors share some of the same academic background as conventional medical doctors and can often prescribe some medications. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), naturopathic medicine is holistic care that addresses a wide range of problems including (but not limited to) allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Naturopathic medicine aims to strengthen and empower the body and its organs to heal itself through low-force interventions. Here are some examples of the type of medical services often provided by naturopathic doctors, as cited by the AANP:

    • Clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing
    • Nutritional medicine
    • Botanical medicine
    • Naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy)
    • Hygiene
    • Counseling
    • Minor surgery
    • Homeopathy
    • Acupuncture
    • Intravenous and injection therapy
    • Naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth)

    Do naturopaths take insurance?

    Many naturopathic doctors accept insurance, but a separate question is whether your insurance covers alternative and naturopathic services. There are several steps you can take to find out:

    • Verify whether you live in one of the 20 states that currently licenses naturopathic physicians:
      • Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington.
    • Confirm whether your insurance will cover naturopathic medical services. Read your insurance plan’s fine print, verify whether naturopathic doctors fall into your insurance carrier’s definition of a doctor, and confirm that the care you are receiving is considered medically necessary. Questions to ask your insurance provider could include:
      • Am I covered for this treatment by a naturopathic physician?
      • Do I need a referral?
      • Is there a list of approved naturopathic doctors in my network?
      • What will the co-pay be?
      • Are there limits to my naturopathic coverage?
    • Before seeking medical care, it’s key to understand the difference between a naturopathic doctor and a naturopath. Anyone may advertise themselves as a naturopath, while to be a licensed naturopathic doctor, a person must complete academic and clinical training.

    Can naturopathic doctors prescribe medication?

    Licensed naturopathic doctors can prescribe some pharmaceutical medication. Naturopathic doctors complete academic training similar to that of conventional physicians: a bachelor’s degree with a focus on pre-med studies, followed by a four-year residential naturopathic medical program whose first two years have a similar foundation to that of a conventional medical school. After completing their studies, they must pass a post-doctoral exam. Although licensed naturopathic physicians are able to prescribe medication, they usually focus on prevention rather than treatment of symptoms. A naturopathic doctor will offer a holistic approach to your care that encompasses your mental, physical and emotional health. While they will prescribe medication as needed to treat illness, they are also likely to be creating shifts in your lifestyle and nutrition to effect deeper changes in your body’s response to illness.   

    How do you find a good naturopath?

    It’s important not to get misled by the title “naturopath” when searching for a naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor is a licensed professional, while anyone who so desires can call themselves a naturopath. A naturopathic doctor has completed eight years of schooling and is licensed to provide high-quality medical care. When searching for a naturopathic doctor, a good place to start is by researching your state’s licensing and regulatory body for that profession.

    Currently, 20 U.S. states license the practice of naturopathic medicine. For those seeking holistic, body-centered healing solutions, a naturopathic doctor can be a good fit. They use natural medicines as well as treatments such as electrotherapy and ayurvedic medicine to encourage the body to heal. Once you have determined a list of naturopathic physicians who are licensed in your state, look for reviews, ask for referrals, and interview the physician in person or by phone to find the right care provider for your health needs.

    How long do naturopathic doctors go to school?

    Like conventional physicians, naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous academic and clinical training prior to practice. Typically naturopathic doctors go to school for eight years. There are currently 20 states in the U.S. that provide licensing for naturopathic doctors. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, a naturopathic doctor must complete a bachelor’s degree and an accredited four-year residential naturopathic medical program, and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination, the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX), in order to receive a license or registration to practice medicine.

    The first two years of the residential naturopathic medical program cover many of the same areas of study as conventional medical schools. Naturopathic doctors provide primary patient holistic care. The goal of naturopathic medicine is preventative care and a focus on low force intervention healing methods. This can include natural medicines, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and much more. Naturopathic doctors often work in tandem with conventional medical doctors, as the two practices complement one another.
