I took my 18 year daughter to Sean because early Dec she started experiencing severe abdominal pain from a UC flare up. She was diagnosed in March 2016 but had never experience this kind of pain. After going to the ER a couple of times and even being admitted into hospital for a weekend the pain continued. As a mother I became desperate to find a way to relieve my daughter from the pain she was suffering. I started researching and came across Sean and Blue Bear Healing. I looked on his website and read his reviews. I didn't have anything to lose and my daughter was open to try anything. I am so glad that I took that step and Sean was available to see my daughter on the same day I called him. My daughter had 3 sessions with Sean and every time she saw him I could see her more relaxed. I do think that Sean's ability to look into her emotions and physical being helped her through the pain that is now almost completely gone. She is still seeing a medical doctor and taking medications but mentally and emotionally Sean has helped my daughter through this tough period in her young life. I also think he has made her see herself in a different way that will help her throughout her life.

Jonathan is amazing when it comes to teaching you not only the technical and physical aspects of a yoga asana, but also information in regards to energetics that is essential to deepen your practice. When I hit a plateau in my self practice, Jonathan re-ignited the love I have for yoga as a holistic system. Thanks to not only his informative explanations, but his passion for yoga as a holistic means to find your inner potential, I am back on my mat. :) He doesn't just tell you how to get into a yoga asana. He explains the essentials and answers any questions you have with depth and knowledge. Teachers like him are hard to come by. Take his classes! They are truly worth your time :)

Angela helped me get clear and take the right actions to get a fresh sense of purpose. Angela has been such a blessing! I worked with her for about 6 months, and have had lasting results. I feel more empowered and organized than ever before. Things are just clicking for me now, because of this shift. Angela helped me see what I couldn't about my habits and patterns, to reorganize my life to better support MY needs. Now I have new supportive patterns that are helping me live a more holistic life of self care, with less stress! Angela is an excellent listener and mentor who genuinely cares and is observant. Thank you so much Angela dear!!!

    I got acupuncture treatments from Vignette for a while for anxiety, digestive issues, and allergies. Her treatments were always relaxing and effective but best of all is how warm and caring Vignette is. Just being in her presence is a healing experience.

    I have been licensed for 21 years, working in the same area. Sensitive education for self healing is a big part of a treatment, if desired and appropriate. I spend more time to foster transformation. I was a desperate patient once myself and I'm compassionate, non judgemental and positive.

    Have you ever really listened to the words, beliefs and stories that run through your mind each day, hour or minute? How often do beat yourself or others up for a small mistake? Deep coaching allows us to see where we're being unkind to ourselves and others, which weather you know it or not, is holding you back from being the person you want to be and having the life you dream of. Wouldn't it be amazing to be your own best friend and your biggest cheerleader? How good would it feel to have more impact on the lives of those you care about?

    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.
