See what others are saying about Dr. Hickman and Naturopathic Medicine

Tara Hickman has kept our family healthy since we started seeing her almost a year ago. As a working mother of a 2 year-old and 3 month-old, I appreciate that Tara is a ‘mom’s doctor.’ I am always able to talk to her personally and receive same-day feedback. Her holistic approach in looking at the cause of the symptoms makes me feel good about promoting wellness and a healthy lifestyle in our family versus treating illness and disease.

When I first saw Tara Hickman, I was at my wits end! I had been battling with the effects of a hiatal hernia for over a year and was restricted to 1cup of food per meal and copious amounts of antacids and very expensive Acid Blockers. Even being very careful with the amounts I ate and what I ate, I was still in pain about 65% of the time. To ad insult to injury, I started having severe allergy symptoms on top of the GERD issues. I spent two months with a chronic sinus infection and constant sneezing and dripping. I was also diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and after several months of thyroid medicine, I still was feeling very lethargic and low energy and had terrible concentration and memory issues. I was so sick it was affecting my relationship with my long term boyfriend. I had many tests run by my regular GP with no helpful results. My Doctor just sort of giggled at me and suggested maybe I had a sleep disorder and suggested I go for a very expensive sleep study. I decided it was time for a change and time to get my health back!

After following the recommendations by Tara, I now feel that I am on the road to recovery. My allergy symptoms are practically non existent! I can actually get into a dusty situation without being sick for the rest of the day. I don’t take any antihistamines anymore. I am off almost all my stomach meds and only take an over the counter acid reducer at night. My energy is much improved. My concentration is much improved. I am convinced that if I had continued on my path of ill health I would have continued to get sicker. Regular doctors were completely ineffective in helping me with my stomach or my allergies and Tara helped me in a very short time and without a huge bill for medicine and tests. I have since recommended her to my entire family and all my friends. I’m convinced that with Tara’s help, I am well on my way to a far healthier future! Thank you, Dr. Hickman!

My four-year-old was constantly sick. We brought her to see Dr. Tara, and she immediately discovered her problem and tests confirmed it. She put us on a diet and supplement regimen and within two months my daughter was looking healthier, feeling more energetic and sleeping better than she ever has, not to mention that she has rarely been sick since. We are so thankful for Dr. Tara!

What has being under Tara Hickman’s care meant to me? First, she honored all of the layers of my being, rather than separating physical symptoms from emotional and spiritual issues. Being able to work with someone who understands that they are, in fact, related, and someone who encourages embracing them all at once, allowed me to make quicker progress. Peeling away layers—as they arose—helped me focus on what I most needed to focus on and then, move through it. At every step, she encouraged, and expected, my own full participation in my care. Additionally, she exemplifies thorough investigation, compassionate care, and professional conduct. I highly recommend her to others seeking answers to interwoven health concerns.

Dr. Hickman was so great to us. Asher actually looked forward to going to each appointment. Her office is so fun and friendly. She allowed us all the time we needed to ask questions and gave us answers so we could fully understand our child’s diagnosis. She treats you like you’re the only client she has and she has all the time in the world to visit with you. I didn’t feel like a number. I felt like she knew my child and wanted to be involved in the process of helping him get better.

I was searching for a qualified Naturopathic physician in NWA and after a thorough search on the internet found Dr. Tara Hickman and am especially glad to have done so. In the past I had successfully worked through conditions that conventional medical practices couldn’t resolve other than to treat symptoms, (rather than actually finding the cause), with pharmaceutical prescription drugs that often carry side effects, that I wasn’t interested in entertaining.

I sought Tara’s help with a persistent cough that I had for several months along with a much more recent intestinal disorder that seemed to appear out of nowhere. She recommended a plan that was natural and non-evasive using homeopathic solutions to address the cause as opposed to treating symptoms.

As a result of working with Tara over a couple of visits and following her direction, my cough began to diminish relatively quickly over the first week and had completely disappeared in the next couple of weeks. My intestinal system issues also returned to normal in about a week.

I have continued to work with her to help manage my day to day wellness and to continue to maintain an optimum state of health and well being. She is very thorough and knowledgeable, demonstrates true caring and compassion in her work, and exemplifies the kind of professionalism in keeping with the high standard we would all hold for our very best personalized healthcare. I would highly recommend her services as a part one’s personal team to safely and effectively manage their healthcare alternatives.
