More and more, we are seeing Native plant populations decline because of over harvesting, development and loss of habitat. “A renewed interest in American medicinal plants by foreign businesses, the sudden appeal of botanicals to drug companies, and the burgeoning natural foods and cosmetics industry has spurred the hunt for wild herbs in ever greater amounts to satisfy the seemingly insatiable demand for herbal products ” Rosemary Gladstar, United Plant Savers founder, Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat. The mission and vision of United Plant Savers is clear and simple: to conserve and restore native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come. This will ensure an abundant supply of food for our pollinators as well, which will support local agriculture and ecosystems.  Come join this movement and learn how to plant a native medicinal garden or include them in a garden you may already have. Small urban spaces will be included!

Free flower essence with purchase of bodywork package; Valentine’s Day Special

This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself to a craniosacral therapy or visceral manipulation package and get a flower essence as well! Use this offer to relieve stress, pain or belly bloat and reconnect with your health priorities. Expires 02/14/19.

Craniosacral therapy and visceral manipulation are both powerful and gentle forms of bodywork that can complement any other type of healing modality or medicine. Craniosacral is especially useful for chronic pain, nervous system issues and sleep issues by working with the nervous system, the fascia, the joints and the bones. Visceral manipulation is particularly helpful with digestive issues and working on the endocrine and reproductive systems by mobilizing the organs. Often, these modalities are combined to achieve the best results.

Flower essences are also gentle medicines made by capturing the holographic images of flowers in the sun using water. They are very helpful for emotional support and spiritual transformation. These flower essences were all made by Dr. Eisenheim by hand from various flowers from her garden, the fields and woods. Enjoy!

The fee is $300 for a package of 4 sessions. Typically, sessions cost $100 each, so you would be spending $400, instead of $300, and you receive the complementary flower essence, valued at $20. Package must be used 6 months from date of purchase.

Call now to purchase your package and get scheduled: 413-676-9009.

Limited to one per person. Appointments are required and are subject to availability. Must show this offer before purchase. Cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts. No cash value or other redemption value. Other restrictions may apply. Call for details.

This Valentine’s Day offer runs from February 7th-14th.

Clinic re-opening mid-June

As some businesses in Massachusetts start to open, you might be wondering where Cedar Rose Naturopathic fits in to the re-opening plan. The clinic could be reopening for in-person visits as soon as mid-June 2020! We will be following the guidance according to Phase 2 of the state’s 4-phase approach to re-opening the economy.

There will of course be some changes to how we do things once we fully re-open( temperature checks, hand washing, masks and physical distancing), so stay tuned for those updates.

We can continue to do virtual or phone consults. Herbs and supplements can be dropped off to your porch or mailed to you as needed, and we can continue using Wellevate. An exciting new offer will be remote cranio-sacral therapy! You can have a session right from your home and not have to worry if it’s safe or not.
Keep checking your emails for information about that. I have been practicing on some patients and getting amazing results.

I will still hold the special offer for a COVID-19 consult. Typically, this would cost $150, but for the COVID-19 consults it will be a sliding scale of $60-$100. I will not turn anyone
away for a consult, so please be generous if you can. 

Schedule a return office visit here. If you’re a new patient, select the I’m sick and can’t get out of bed consult: https://cedarroseheals.com/appointments/  

Get offline and hug a tree, especially an evergreen tree to breath in their healing aromas.

Feel free to forward to your friends and family.

Looking for Some Allergy Relief?

Even though is been cold this past week and we got snow!, spring is here.

You might be looking excitedly towards the warmer days and flowers, or you may already be suffering from a runny nose, itchy and/or watery eyes, or have asthma and it gets worse this time of year, it can becomes hard to breath, or maybe you get so stuffed up that it’s hard to think and concentrate on work. Either way, I wanted to let you know that I’ve got your back. I have two of my favorite allergy supplements in stock,
Natural D-hist by Orthomolecular products and the Cedar Rose Naturopathic Sinus and Allergy Tea, formulated by me.

The Sinus and spring allergy tea features nettle, along with lemongrass, dandelion and burdock roots, goji berry, gotu kola, and eyebright and is great for indoor and outdoor allergies. The tea is supportive to the liver, while also being a detoxifying tea containing an abundance of minerals. Clients have reported that using this tea has helped immediately resolve itchy eyes and congestion.

Natural D-Hist is a targeted blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes and botanicals designed to provide comprehensive support for seasonal challenges caused by common environmental allergens. The formula includes quercetin, bromelain, stinging nettles leaf, and N-acetyl cysteine. The powerful combination actively promotes healthy nasal and sinus passages for individuals with elevated histamine and respiratory irritation.

To purchase products, email cedarroseheals@gmail.com or call 413 676 9009. Products can be shipped to you for a small additional fee or dropped off at your home for locals(Greenfield, Turners Falls, Millers Falls and Wendell).

*DISCLAIMER: There is no guarantee that every individual will achieve the same results. Results are dependent on other factors such as pre-existing conditions, co-morbidities, diet, lifestyle, and commitment and time to allow change to occur.

If you want to read more about the products, how to harvest nettles and about tips for allergy season, read on below.

Feel free to also share this with friends and family. 

In health,

**************************************************************************************************************

So, what are seasonal allergies? Seasonal allergies, sometimes called “hay fever” or seasonal allergic rhinitis, are allergy symptoms that happen during certain times of the year, usually when outdoor molds release their spores, and trees, grasses, and weeds release tiny pollen particles into the air to fertilize other plants. They develop when the body’s immune system overreacts to something in the environment.

What can you do? You can follow these tips to avoid your triggers:

  • Monitor pollen and mold counts. Weather reports in newspapers and on radio and television often include this information during allergy seasons.
  • Keep windows and doors shut at home and in your car during allergy season.
  • In spring and summer, during tree and grass pollen season, levels are highest in the evening. In late summer and early fall, during ragweed pollen season, levels are highest in the morning.
  • Take a shower, wash your hair and change your clothes after you’ve been working or playing outdoors.
  • Wear a mask when mowing the lawn or doing other chores outdoors, and take appropriate medication beforehand.

Luckily, we live somewhere where a plant grows abundantly that can help us with these seasonal allergies. This plant is nettles, or in Latin, Urtica dioica. This plant is loved by some and hated by others, as it is with most wild plants we call “weeds.” This is the first medicinal herb that I met and fell in love with, and I am so happy to share nettle with you. Nettle loves wet areas, and you will find it growing near streams, rivers and brooks. Nettles have tiny spiky, sharp hairs growing all over its stems and leaves. These tiny hairs are what give nettle a bad rep, however these hairs contain medicinal compounds, which help to stabilize mast cells, creating less of an immune reaction and can help to prevent seasonal allergy symptoms when taken on a regular basis. They also contain a plethora of minerals and vitamins, most notably iron and potassium. Nettle can be ingested as a tea, can be carefully cooked (see very nettle wild soup recipe below) or you can pick use freeze-dried nettles in a capsule form.

Cooking tip: nettles must be cooked for at least 10 minutes to soften the hairs, but don’t worry, much of the medicinal qualities remain intact.

Harvesting tips: If you’ve never harvested in the wild, please go with someone who knows what they’re doing so that you harvest the correct plant and treat the plant community in a respectful way. One teaching I like to pass on to my clients and herbal students is to give something before you harvest the plant. In most indigenous nations throughout the Americas, people give tobacco as an offering to the plant before harvesting. But you can give anything that fits into your paradigm or religious/spiritual tradition, as long as the intention of giving and acknowledging that you are taking something is there. Some give prayer, a few strands of hair, some a song, chocolate, a piece of bread or a bead. Only harvest as much as you need, have a plan in mind of what you want to use the plant for, and be kind, don’t take all the plants. Always leave some of the plants for other people and animals who want to harvest, and for the plant community to be able to reseed and come back next year.

With nettle, you can get stung if you approach the wrong way. For beginners, I suggest wearing good, thick gardening gloves and bringing a pair of scissors along with a harvesting basket or bag. You can hold the top of the plant, snip off the top 2-4 inches for the easiest preparation and let it fall in the basket or bag. Once there are flowers or the nettles are more than 2 feet tall, you do not want to harvest anymore. There are compounds that can be harmful to the kidney if you harvest nettle leaves too late.

Nettle is the feature in my Spring allergy and sinus tea that I formulated along with lemongrass(which is helpful for mold exposure), dandelion root and burdock root(for liver support and minerals), goji berries( a red berry from the Himalayas that helps to support the liver, and is sour, which in the Ayurvedic system of medicine from SE Asia is balancing to the body this time of year), gotu kola( also an Ayurvedic herb, which is specific for preventing allergies) and eyebright( a Native US plant that helps with the itchy and watery eyes).

By the way, I have grown all these herbs or harvested them in this climate. This tea is delicious and nutritious, which is so important as we transition to spring time, after a long winter of eating more animal products and starches. If you have springtime allergies, you’ll want to start drink 3 cups/day of the tea on a regular basis so that when the flowers start blooming, the medicine has already been in the body and the body reacts less, creates less inflammation and there are less symptoms.

We’re Going Virtual – Special Offer

For the safety of all patients and the community at large, we’ve reached the time when I need to stop seeing clients in person and go virtual.

There will be no  in person visits indefinitely. This doesn’t mean that we’re not connected and that we can’t stay connected. We can do virtual or phone consults and I can drop off herbs to your porch or mail them to you as needed, as well as use Wellevate.

I’m holding a special offer with deep savings for a COVID-19 consult. Typically, this would cost $150, but for the COVID-19 consults it will be a sliding scale of $60-$100. I will not turn anyone
away for a consult, so please be generous if you can.

Dr. Nitya Jessica Eisenheim, ND is a Naturopathic physician who is passionate about herbal medicine, cooking, healthy food and community building. Nitya grew up in NYC going to conventional doctors. She did not know a dandelion from a tomato plant, nonetheless know that plants can actually heal you. Dr. Eisenheim has had the opportunity to treat hundreds of patients in all stages of Lyme disease while mentoring with Dr. Emily Maiella at Windhorse Naturopathic Clinic in Brattleboro, VT. Dr. Nitya Eisenheim, ND graduated from Bastyr University, a leading research and educational institution. For more info about the clinic and doctor go here: http://cedarroseheals.com/my-journey/

Here’s what others have to say about working with Dr. Eisenheim:

Looking back on where my health was 2 years ago, I cannot believe how far I have come in my healing from Chronic Lyme disease. At that time, I felt helpless and I felt like giving up. My body and mind were over ridden with pathogens, and other doctors just didn’t seem to listen to me or “get it”. I knew that there was something that these other doctors were missing, and I sought out a less traditional healing modality- naturopathic medicine. Upon visiting Dr. Eisenheim for my first appointment, I felt like crying with such relief to know that I was being heard and understood. Unlike the other doctors I had seen, she took a thorough examination of all aspects of my health through labs, life style, emotional stability, spirituality, and my physical body. It has become clear to me how much Dr. Eisenheim cares about my well-being and is well versed in Chronic Lyme by how much healing has taken place with me being in her care.
I cannot believe how much I have changed over time and how I can actually feel like a vital person now. At one point in time, I was debilitated and wasn’t able to go on walks, work, or go on social outings, and now I am able to have a better quality of life. I believe in naturopathic medicine, energy healing, and the power that healing the whole entire being has on overcoming chronic illness.
–RA

I’ve been dealing with Lyme Disease since June of 2017 and still suffer intermittent symptoms. I attended Dr Eisenheim’s workshop on Lyme Disease in April 2018. I was impressed with her easy to understand information and willingness to share her knowledge as well as her kind and professional demeanor. I took home the Tick Kit as a preventative. 3 1/2 weeks post tick bite I have thankfully not had a reoccurrence of Lyme symptoms. I have gladly added Dr. Eisenheim to my Lyme treatment regime.
-JA

I decided to visit Cedar Rose after I exhausted all other medical options with my son who was chronically sick. After our first visit I saw a drastic improvement in his overall health within 2 weeks. She carefully listened to all of my concerns and gave me a plan of action for him which included dietary changes and supplements.

Intro to Gut Healing and Fermentation workshop

Hands-on, interactive, introductory workshop to healing the immune and digestive systems with Dr. Eisenheim’s 3 step gut reset program.

Are you experiencing digestive discomfort and feel afraid of what to eat?

Do you end up regretting what you ate?

Are you suffering with autoimmune or Lyme disease and feel like you will never get better?

Having digestive issues can be a common concern for many suffering with chronic illness. Healing the gut can be a key and important step in this healing journey as the gut is the seat of the immune and nervous systems, both often weak in these disease states and essential to complete healing. Eat more freely, without worrying about bloating. Feel better from abdominal pain, food sensitivities, constipation, diarrhea, chronic pain, joint pain, and headaches. Even if you don’t have a chronic illness, this is for you if you are a busy professional who feels burnt out and disconnected. Replenish yourself and reconnect with nature through healing foods and natural medicines. This hands on, interactive workshop is a foundation and a prerequisite to our most popular program, an 8-week gut reset program.

Topics to be explored:

  1. Learn how fermentation can transform your digestion and immune health; make and take home a fermented food product.
  2. Learn 3 home remedies, including the Nervous Belly Tea formulated by Dr. Eisenheim, to reduce belly bloat, constipation and abdominal pain.
  3. Learn about Dr. Eisenheim’s 3 step Gut Reset Program.

Dr. Nitya Jessica Eisenheim, ND is a Naturopathic physician who is passionate about herbal medicine, cooking, healthy food and community building. Nitya grew up in NYC going to conventional doctors. She did not know a dandelion from a tomato plant, nonetheless know that plants can actually heal you. Through learning herbal medicine, Ayurveda, integrative nutrition, naturopathic medicine, cranio sacral therapy and visceral manipulation, she learned ways to listen to the body and be in harmony with it, instead of feeling confused by the body’s signals or feeling like she was in a constant battle with it. She healed from chronic back and hip pain, irregular periods and unhealthy digestion.

 Here’s what others have to say about working with Dr. Eisenheim:

– The herbal protocol and elimination diet that you prescribed shifted things quickly for me and I found a lot of relief. The diarrhea and itchiness went away first and then slowly I regained my energy levels. Now I have a better sense of what works for my body and what doesn’t. I feel like the things you prescribed helped to give me a deeper feeling of connection with and understanding of my body. I found a better balance through listening to my body- which foods worked and didn’t, which activities made it better or worse, and how I felt in my body during stressful times. During this time I also resumed my meditation practice and was reminded to find more time for general self care. I also found different ways of being active that took less of a toll on my body.

– DW

– Slowly, I was able to heal. You were able to recommend supplements and herbs to heal my stomach. Although it took awhile to get back to normal, I feel much better. No more vomiting or diarrhea. No acid reflux or back pain. Sleep is much better and my energy levels are better than before. My overall health has improved. My energy levels are better than before the stomach problems. I missed being able to work more and go out with friends. I can exercise more and have better stamina. I’m able to sleep better. My stools are always healthy. My other health conditions have improved as well. –RA


I have been able to focus more of my energy on healthier things, instead of dealing with the social and mental challenges. More at peace that my alternative diet is just me long term reality. Finding joy in the foods I can eat! – ALW

After nearly completely recovering from late-stage Lyme disease, I came to Dr. Eisenheim for help with SIBO(small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). After receiving her bodywork, I had relief from my daily upper right quadrant pain for more than two weeks, the longest period of relief I’d felt in a year of having the pain. She helped me design a diet and herbal protocol that worked for me.  After years of seeing practitioners who claimed to have the answer, Dr. Eisenheim’s support to help ME choose my healing path was a breath of fresh air.
