Spring has helped me is so many ways. My mental health, emotional health and physical health has all improved. I feel balanced, uplifted, worthy, and more relaxed. I have a lighter sense of well being. Keep doing what you all are doing. You have a great team. I feel supported. Thank you all, Alisun Bonville, Noelle Butler, Rebecka Casto, Lauren Oechsli, Megan Ulrichs and Josh Overcash!
I went to Dr. Butler because of her integrated approach to healthcare collaborating with multi-discipline medical providers for my best care. I continue to see Dr. Butler because of her mind/body/spirit focus. Her refined intuition during craniosacral therapy is awareness raising and healing. In her expert guidance, she encourages self-responsibility around treatment options including nutrition, herb/botanical support, introspection and trusting my own intuition. For me, focusing primarily on health instead of the diagnosis was a transformational way to think about healthcare. It impacted life positively as my body returned to health. I am grateful to Dr. Butler for guiding my process.
I feel that my health is being taken care of. Dramatic shifts and releases happen when I receive treatment from Josh Overcash. Keep doing what you are doing!
My therapy experience with Rebecka Casto has been very positive. Rebecka is respectful, non judgemental and supportive with a tender heart. A woman of her word, very professional, knowledgeable, intuitive and fun to work with. A kindred spirit. When I first met Rebecka I was overwhelmed with anxiety, anger, grief and low self esteem. She created a safe space that put me at ease. From that came change. We are very fortunate to have Rebecka in our community. Her service is truly a gift. Thank you Rebecka.
Suffering from debilitating headaches and digestive issues for many years, I have spent hours with doctors and lots of money on therapy. When I learned about the naturopathic approach to food testing and craniosacral therapy I was somewhat skeptical. I was wrong! Since giving my body the food it digests easily my headaches have completely resolved. Subtle changes started occurring in the first craniosacral session when Dr. Butler released tension from the back of my head and lower jaw. She uses her knowledge of naturopathic medicine, intuitive abilities with craniosacral therapy, and confident manner to bring results to her patients.
As I think of all the qualities I look for in a physician, I realize that I have found a physician that has all of them. Aside from being highly knowledgeable and motivated, Dr. Bonville has a keen intuitive sense, which allows her to quite efficiently assess and treat my current health imbalances. I began seeing Dr. Bonville in order to treat more chronic issues and attain a better state of wellness, but when I was faced with a acute situation, I felt rest assured that I was going to receive the best care possible. And I did. Dr. Bonville has a true gift of making a person feel comfortable with a great balance of humor, integrity and professionalism. I feel as if she really understands who i am- which allow the healing process to happen more easily. I have been to see many differentNaturopathic Physicians over the years, but never did I have the level of confidence in a physician’s medical knowledge and healing abilities until I began seeing Dr. Bonville.
My BodyTalk sessions with Josh were instrumental in helping me heal from the emotional and physical pain of an emergency cesarean. His ability to heal others is a true blessing to this community.
Dr. Alisun Bonville is one of a kind. She is exceptional in all aspects and is the best doctor I have seen in reference to her knowledge, skill, deep sense of caring, desire to help patients, and ability to listen. Dr. Alisun Bonville always puts extra effort into her patient’s cases, which leads to great results. She has a kind, gentle, warm and welcoming heart and is an extraordinary doctor!
We took our daughter to see Josh after she struggled with the side effects of a vaccine. By the next morning she was back to her happy self! BodyTalk really helped.
I’ve been working with Dr. Bonville on a lifelong problem and a couple of issues related to being post-menopausal. I just turned 50 and I have more vitality than I’ve had in the past few years. My husband keeps telling me how beautiful I am and other’s have mentioned noticing a change in appearance. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t turning 50 that gave me new spring in my step, but it is a direct result of the natural healthcare measures that Dr. Bonville has prescribed. I truly appreciate her approach to healthcare, the time she devotes to her patients, and her follow through. I highly recommend Dr. Bonville to anyone that would like personal healthcare with a sensible approach.
I recently decided to change my health care from my retiring general practitioner to naturopathy and after accidentally meeting Alisun seated next to me on a flight and discovering her specialty is women’s health I decided she would be the perfect fit for me. I am 50+ year old menopausal female in generally good health, but recently experienced a significant decline due to thyroid problems and decided to make the switch immediately to Alisun. I am now a month into being cared for by her and cannot say enough, about how wonderful she has been. She is attentive, thorough, seeks my participation and has garnered my trust in a this very short time. I am continuing to experience marked improvement in my mini-crisis and believe that over time she will be able to help me achieve all of my health care goals. Thank you Alisun.
When I met Dr. Butler, I had been recently diagnosed with breast cancer. My first meeting with her was exactly what I hoped a good doctor/patient relationship would be. She listened to me and the family members that came for the first visit. She guided me through each and every decision about chemotherapy, surgery, dietary changes, supplements, and acupuncture. She worked closely with my oncologist to ensure the best possible outcome of treatment with minimal side-effects. My health is better today than it ever was before cancer and cancer treatment. I recommend Dr. Butler to everyone I meet that has been touched by cancer.
BodyTalk with Josh helped me get over a 6 month outbreak of hives that meds couldn’t stop.
I would like to give you a huge, and special thank you (Dr. Bonville) for everything you’ve done for me. I have noticed a huge difference since I first started seeing you. You are so friendly, caring, understanding, honest, trusting, and very helpful and hopeful. I always look forward to our visits because I see you as a friend and I feel comfortable sharing with you what is going on. You have also given me hope that I did not have before. You take the time to listen and to really figure out what is going on. Some of the Western medical doctors I have seen in the past never really told me or looked into what the root of the problem was, their answer would just be something like “well, you have an unusual or rare condition.” You can always tell when a person loves their job because it shows and it reflects on the treatment of their patients. This is the first time I have seen a naturopathic doctor and I have loved it so much that I have been looking into being able to incorporate naturopathic medicine in the profession I have chosen. Thank you so much for all you do and for being who you are. You are not only an awesome and excellent doctor but a true inspiration. Thank you!
What I like about Dr. Bonville is that she cares so much about her patients. She really took the time to listen and understand what my issues were before recommending treatment. I had grown used to doctors that are in a hurry and don’t take the time to get to know their patients so it has been a real pleasure to work with Dr. Bonville. Thanks to her, I am feeling more energetic and looking better. Her holistic approach to health was just what I was looking for and I highly recommend her to anyone!
Because of my work with Dr. Butler, I am the healthiest I have ever been I my life. The food intolerance test results have been life changing. I no longer need to take any medications, I have no intestinal issues, and I can eat all I want of foods that are good for my body. I’m at a healthy weight, eat great foods full of nutrients, and just feel wonderful. I’m not only healthier on the diet side of things, but I am more self-aware. Through sessions of craniosacral treatment I have learned about how and where my body holds stress, what my stressors are, and Dr. Butler has given me tools to better manage all of these aspects. Working with Dr. Butler is one of my top three things I find necessary to live the healthy, stress-managed, love filled life I enjoy daily.
I began seeing Dr. Bonville as my primary physician this last spring of 2010. I had been recommended by an MD to begin taking a couple prescribed medications to counter a couple hereditary issues. Dr. Bonville met with me over just a couple hours and immediately began educating me on the basics of health. This was very new to me, as my previous experience with physicians was always simply instructions without the education.
Much like a professor and their student, Alisun adapted quickly to how I would most effectively take and implement her education. That way she was a step ahead when it came time to begin implementing her naturopathic solutions. I have now been following Dr. Bonville’s solutions for about a month and can already feel the difference. The best part is I feel the healing power of natural supplements without the side effects that most western medicines will generate.
The moment I met Alisun and learned about her passion for women’s health I knew I needed to get to know her better. When I learned that she could be my primary care provider I was thrilled to say the least. I’d had chronic digestion issues for 10 years but with her compassionate care I reached a new level of health that I never knew existed. I love that she spends so much time and asks so many questions and doesn’t settle for mediocre health. I always felt completely taken care of when I was around her and had a trust for her that I never had for any other health practitioner in my life. I miss her dearly but am so happy for the people in Montana who will get to be cared for by her — you are so very fortunate.
