At long last, after 20+ years, Naturopathic doctors can apply for licensure in the state of Massachusetts. I now hold in my hand Naturopathic license number 26.
What does this mean for you? I can now order imaging like X-rays and lab work so we don’t have to go through your primary care provider. Some labs like the GI map stool test might get covered by insurance if you have out of network benefits. There is no insurance coverage for visits. I cannot prescribe any medications.
Do you have an FSA or HSA account? Check your balance and your coverage. Now is the time to schedule end of the year visits to help plan for preventing any chronic illness flare ups, come up with a plan to deal with holiday food issues and digestive issues or how to (mostly) stay on healing diets and family dynamics. Also, get help for your children dealing with all the colds and viruses going around. Most accounts will cover supplements and labs not covered by insurance and some will pay for consultations, especially now that I am licensed.

Lastly, Cedar Rose Signature tea is back for sale and
for enjoying in the office when you come in. I used to make Cedar Rose tea pre-pandemic for patients coming into the office. It is very relaxing and refreshing and adds to the whole experience. You can pick some tea up for taking home when you come into the office or can order it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or sending a portal message on Charm.
All the best,
Dr. Nitya Eisenheim, Naturopathic doctor
