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 owe this transformation to healing with plants, homeopathy, energy healing, and other methods that were recommended to me by Dr. Eisenheim. I can honestly say that I enjoy working with her, and I have learned so much about how to heal myself with diet, life style, and herbal medicine. I am overwhelmingly grateful to her for her patience, depth of knowledge, care, and intuition when it comes to healing me from Chronic Lyme as well as other health issues that I have had including adrenal fatigue, Epstein Barr virus, SIBO, Candida, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and recovery from long term antibiotic usage.
I know that having chronic neurological lyme disease has been and probably will be the hardest thing that I will ever have gone through in my entire life. However, I am grateful for the changes and the healing that has taken place to get me to where I am now. I feel such joy at times that I never before have felt, and the illness has taught me how to take care of myself and have a healthy life style. I believe in naturopathic medicine, energy healing, and the power that healing the whole entire being has on overcoming chronic illness.

After nearly completely recovering from late-stage Lyme disease, I came to Nitya for help with SIBO(small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), upper right quadrant pain, and air hunger (I kept running out of breath). After receiving her bodywork for the first time, 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. And, it continued to improve. She educated me on the different options to treat the SIBO and helped me design a diet and herbal protocol that worked for me. After years of seeing practitioners who claimed to have the answer, Nitya’s support to help ME choose my healing path was a breath of fresh air. Additionally, she made up a mycoplasma formula for me that has almost completely cleared up my lung issues. I’m so grateful for her support and highly recommend her services.

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 so I scheduled a consult and bodywork session. She had scheduled the bodywork session after the initial consult. I had never had one done before. It was an interesting experience that surprised me when it was mostly hands off. When she came to my upper right stomach I felt slight fluttering pangs that I took to be a reoccurrence of inflammation from diverticulitis. Dr. Eisenheim informed me that my liver was distressed. I had indeed tested with a fatty liver in October with a negative follow up test later on. Armed with a lovely digestive blend I was now aware that there was something I was doing that was causing my liver to be angry. Looking back critically I realized that although I’m not an alcohol user, I had used Acetaminophen to treat mild migraines quite often a few weeks before being seen as well as snacking on a pint of ice cream the week prior.
I had been scheduled for a few sessions with the frequency machine. My first treatment was a very new experience. At certain cycles I could feel a sense of clarity slowly move through my head as if a layer of cobwebs were being lifted. 3 days before my second session I was bit on my arm by a tick that did not latch on since I felt it bite and immediately removed it. I developed a red angry bump where the bite was. The same sense of clarity with a sense of lifting off of cobwebs occurred. After the frequency session, during the detox session I felt itching at the bite site. I had removed my glasses before the treatment and, being near-sighted, was unable to see clearly what was going on. What I could make out was the bite looked like a flap of dry skin was coming off at the center. Later I looked with my glasses on and noticed that flap of dry skin was actually a clear bead of fluid that was seeping out of the bite bump. This seeping continued about 1 hour after the treatment. There was no discoloration that you get with an infection nor was there any blood. It was as if the detox program from was expelling the toxins from the tick bite. 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.

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 diet changes and supplements. We as a family are so happy to have found Dr. Nitya. I also highly recommend Dr. Nitya for craniosacral body work.

I am thrilled to be able to share with you that for the FIRST time in 15 months, I’ve had encouraging news from my scan and blood work. My tumor marker is DOWN by OVER 5000 points!!! Additionally, although there was slight growth in my tumors, the rate has slowed considerably to tenths of a cm, not the doubling and tripling of the size of the tumors which had been happening for the past year and half. Again, the FIRST good news on that front in 15 months, even after having had chemotherapy which was deemed a failure for me. My oncologist was THRILLED, excited and hopeful. He was pleased with my choice of you as my Naturopath and impressed with your choice of therapies and also said your alma mater was highly respected, “Probably the best in the Nation.” He has been encouraging me to try mushrooms for a while now! I just didn’t know how to do it all on my own!
I TRULY do believe the work you’ve done for me, especially the mushroom powder and other gut-repairing/building therapies you’ve put me on in the last five weeks have made all the difference. That, along with the cranial-sacral treatments, the sauna and your caring approach of treating me as a whole being and not just ‘parts’ has helped me turn this corner, once again, I believe.Thank you for all the time and effort you’ve put into this so far, and I look forward to booking other sessions with you.
Lovely lovely bodywork and frequency machine, and infrared sauna–feeling calm, centered and home again in my body. Just in time for a Spring detox–be back soon! Thank you!

I had a great experience with Dr Nitya at blue dragon. I received 4 craniosacral sessions in a month and I was blown away by the results. A tangible energetic shift occurred after each session with a noticeable cumulative effect. I highly recommend

Dr. Eisenheim is very knowledgeable and has a caring bedside manner. If you are looking for alternative medicine in the Pioneer Valley area, I can’t recommend her enough.

I highly recommend Dr. Nitya Eisenheim. She is the one to have on your team. Before seeing Nitya I had searched for relief from chronic pain for seven years. Seven years with chronic pain stemming from a marginally successful nerve graft after haven broken my arm. I was desperate. Then I found Nitya. Firstly we transformed the lexicon. Pain became surmountable discomfort. Our investigations found that the discomfort manifested itself in multiple ways and that fighting it had actually overcompensated and compounded the problem. Next we circled in on and identified the root causes. At that point – one evening the discomfort was gone.

I contacted Nitya to ease some of my digestive problems. I have suffered from them most of my life, so I was skeptical about any success. For a year –meeting at first weekly and then monthly — she used visceral manipulation and craniosacral therapies, as well as herbal supplements, to bring heath back to my body. The results amazed me. She also helped me combat my Lyme disease effectively. Nitya was gentle, supportive and encouraging, and I feel I a much healthier person through her intervention.

Nitya was very kind and incredibly knowledgeable. She has a lot of experience and many powerful tools at her disposal. I’m happy I’ll be coming back regularly!

I have been a client with Dr. Nitya Eisenheim at Cedar Rose for approximately 1 year. All of the people who work there are very professional and kind. Nitya Eisenheim is an excellent naturopathic doctor and has helped me greatly. I wish I didn’t live so far away I could participate in more of their workshops etc. I am too glad I found them!

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.

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, Conway, MA
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!

After having been on anti-biotics for 6 months, I continued to have recurring symptoms such as fatigue, chronic pain, vertigo and heart palpitations. I was relieved to have found natural support that actually resolved the remaining symptoms! I was feeling discouraged and scared that this would go on for the rest of my life. I now feel healthy and almost symptom free. I was depressed, and had insomnia. I could have had symptoms for the rest of my life.
I feel proud that I was able to get through this and feel healthy and I owe that in great part to Dr. Eisenheim’s sensitive, intelligent, well-informed help and support. I feel thankful for her warmth, genuine care, and connection. If you have Lyme disease, I suggest getting a team of practitioners with a variety of complementary approaches on board. After I healed from the Lyme disease, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and again Dr. Eisenheim provided support and care during treatment and provided post-care to prevent re-occurrence.
