My husband had a long-time nervous stomach problem, which nothing seemed to help. I nagged him (he's not into alternative medicine) into trying a session with Brett, and he is much, much better. And so is his attitude towards alternative medicine. Thank you, Brett

I met Caroline Ruderman in Hudson, NY. I am always looking for ways to take care of myself without the use of meds or doctors. Holistic healing is for me! My first Reiki session was with Caroline and it was amazing. I made one more visit to her, and then asked if she would teach me. My daughter and I took Reiki 1 and our Masters class with her and again, got so much out of it! She is truly dedicated to this spiritual life she lives. Would recommend her to anyone who wants to experience this type of healing, or those who want to become a practitioner.

With her commitment to Energy Medicine, she has built a thriving practice in a very short period of time.

She custom blends just for you. Her web site is excellent and you can always buy online. I look forward to my monthly fix with Gina.

After suffering too long with pain, headaches and sleep deprivation, I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The chiropractor I was seeing at the time suggested I see an acupuncturist and introduced me to Andrea Henkels. I was hesitant, but desperate for relieve. Andrea immediately won my confidence with her caring and professional manner. Andrea is knowledgeable in all areas of healing including acupuncture, herbal supplements and massage. She is a kind, gentle, caring spirit. I left my first appointment feeling relaxed, peaceful and centered. I have continued to see Andrea to help me deal with my fibromyalgia and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an alternative to Western medicine.

Gigi is a very caring individual. She listens with empathy and that in itself is holistic. However, she helps you be aware of your power in the present. I left her session feeling "wow, I know things were bad in the past, but that is the past....lets move forward. I am amazing".

Jane is intuitive when it comes to massage. The best massages I've ever had. I don't even think about trying someone else. You get a full, hard-working hour with a really nice gal who understands 'touch' and how it is medicine and positive energy for the body. She is simply the best. A+

I experienced old soul holistic reki and life coaching. I was a reki skeptic before I began sessions with Christine, but I was able to feel the energy myself! Her life coaching is engaging and insightful.

Heather is amazing. The great thing about having a coach, whether in life, business or health, is having someone who can at once understand your unique struggles, but hold you accountable to keep your goal on track. There is a reason the most successful people in the world have coaches, even coaches have coaches, because everyone needs help and guidance to keep focused. Heather does this in a compassionate and inspiring way and her out of the box thinking is sure to get you the results you need.

    I originally tried accupuncture for my lower back pain, but quickly learned everything improved! Unlike western medicine where treatment may wait for test results and/or require powerful (and dangerous) prescriptions, accupuncture gives immediate results. Becky is a caring and experienced practitioner who will listen to your concerns and symptoms and treat them right away...I felt greatly improved after only one visit! It's the best I've felt in years!

      Olympia helped me with my stress problems and thanks to her I can now sleep through the night without waking up a couple of times. She also noticed I had a Vitamin D deficiency after looking at my blood work, so she gave me supplements that boosted my energy levels and helped me feel better overall. Never thought I needed a Naturopathic doctor as much as I do now! Thanks Olympia!

      About

      My primary goal as a practitioner is to help each patient realize their full health potential. To that end, I stress the importance of a healthy lifestyle, healthy diet, and daily self-maintenance. I strive to help each patient get onto a healthier path to improve his/her quality of life. In some cases, this means reducing pain, while in other cases it means helping the patient gain a better sense of self-awareness, so that he or she can make more informed decisions about their health and their daily living habits. I have experience treating a wide variety of health-related conditions such as: allergies, arthritis, anxiety, depression, digestive problems, fertility, headaches, insomnia, and general women's health issues. These are by no means the only disorders that I have dealt with. If you have questions regarding your specific concerns, I will be glad to share with you the extent of my clinical experience regarding your issues and whether or not I would be a good choice for you as a health care practitioner. I look forward to helping you along your path to wellness!

      About

      I love helping people feel better so they can return to the things they enjoy in their lives! I help them by facilitating their body's own ability to heal! I love when a client takes time to take care of themselves. You need to take time for yourself, to destress, release tension, resolve pain, so you can then continue taking care of your loved ones!

      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)

      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 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.

      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.

      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.
