I have been receiving treatments from Kim since early summer 2014. First on weekly basis, now bi-weekly. The results are outstanding! My first problem was silent acid reflex. Instead of doctor's recommended acid proton pump inhibitors (which may relief the symptoms but may cause more acid production), I turned to Kim and with acupuncture and herbs got rid of bloating and other related symptoms. One particular case stands out: I got to my appointment with Kim in terrible pain and bloating, hardly able to move... An hour later I jumped off the table completely deflated and pain free! Kim does her diagnostic at the beginning of each treatment and always suggests the treatment that is most needed that day. Also, she takes time to explain things and educate. Thanks Kim! I'm so glad I met you! Yura J.

Never having experienced Reiki before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was a little nervous and right from the start, Tom put me at ease. His vast knowledge on the subject and personability made him easy to talk with and open to my questions. As for the Reiki itself, I found the whole experience tranquil and at the same time uplifting. Not only did it aid in relief of my physical ailments, but more importantly for me was the emotional healing I experienced. I left feeling relaxed and emotionally lighter. I wholeheartedly recommend Tom for those looking for complementary medicine and/or spiritual restoration.

I loved working with Jennifer. I went to her for fertility treatment and unbeknownst to me, I was already pregnant! My progesterone levels were quite low though so through acupuncture and Chinese herbs I have kept them stable. She really listened and I felt like we addressed more than my one issue. I wish I could continue going to here but unfortunately we have moved out of state. She has offered continued support anyway. I can't express how grateful I am for her help and expertise!

    Founded in 2001, ACMA Clinic has become one of the most popular natural medicine clinics in the United States, which provides leading professional and comprehensive health care of holistic and natural medicine. ACMA patients come from 50 states in U.S. and countries in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, etc. Most ACMA patients first started treatments with their family doctors, specialists, local hospitals, and leading hospitals in U.S. or other countries. After those treatments could not help them, they started ACMA treatment and ACMA cancer treatment. Therefore, patients have very high expectations on ACMA treatment and ACMA cancer treatment. Since 2001, we have treated more than 10,000 cases. When they came to ACMA, many of them have been suffering from various severe diseases and illnesses for many years. Many of their diseases are regarded as incurable in medicine. However, after ACMA treatments, most patients' conditions have been improved for the first time in their disease history. To patients, ACMA is the place where patients have found cures for incurable diseases.

    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.   

    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.

    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.
