Cheryl's impact on my life has been both pivotal and immeasurable. She is a fantastic practitioner, who conveys her love, her being into each and every class that she guides. Her ability to help one self-navigate their practice is both unique and unmatched. Her classes are always exceptional and her encouragement challenges me to push myself, physically and mentally, into new postures and new states of thinking and acceptance. As an athlete, and instructor, and trainer, I find her classes rigorous, dynamic, and well-paced. Her knowledge, modifications, and gentleness have allowed me to continue my practice despite health issues that make it physically difficult to move. Cheryl's unrestrained investment in her practice and her students has helped me find peace on and off of my mat. Her support and guidance has allowed me to turn inward and seek answers to difficult questions that are perplexing, trivial, and crucial for my development as yogini, a woman, a friend. She has been a mentor to me; a friend, a mother, and I could not be more grateful for her presence in my life. I would recommend Cheryl's practice to anyone and everyone, those suffering physically, emotionally, mentally, because there is always something to be found.

I am in my mid-60's. I am in rather good shape except for a few aches and pains, which are the result of my involvement in sports, when I was younger. Over the last couple of years, I have developed arthritis in my left knee. The pain gets so bad sometimes, that it prohibits me from getting a good night's sleep. My physician feels that knee replacement may be necessary, at some point in time. Until I reach that point I get periodic shots of cortisone (every three months) and the shots do work! There are times between shots, when the pain start to creeps back. I talked with Eileen about this. She told me she could help in delivering relief, using Reiki. She stated that during the time between my doctor visits, a Reiki treatment could make the pain in my knee more manageable. I must say she was absolutely right. What is so amazing is that she conducted the treatments over the phone, spanning a distance of 1200 miles. The Reiki program is a great supplement to the program I am on with my doctor. I highly recommend Reiki and the services Eileen provides. She is GREAT! Mike

I was in very poor health when I started treatments with Robert. I suffered from food allergies, musculoskeletal pain, and sleep problems. Robert is a great practitioner. He also asks questions and offers suggestions for improvements in all areas of life related to health; such as diet, and supplementation. After only two months of treatment I am a very different person, able to get back to my life that I remember. Change happened immediately and improvements have been steady.

Mitch's skill in energy healing is unsurpassed in my experience. My very first (April 2004) energy healing was on a lark and I did not believe that it would have any effect on me and i wasn't even open to that possibility, but i left that treatment in awe and went from a life long atheist to feeling connected to God (still not religion tho!). Mitch was that energy healer. I have continued to receive treatments from him weekly and he continues to awe me, pushing me forward in recovering health and deepening my spiritual connection. I never let a week go without a treatment from Mitch and I am so thankful that spirit has brought his stellar energy into my life! Prepare to be amazed!!

    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.
