Discover new perspectives for your health…

The oldest naturopathic medical clinic in Rhode Island, Providence Wholistic Healthcare was originally established in 1997 as Providence Naturopathic Associates.  Dr. Sheila M. Frodermann joined that practice at the turn of the millennium. The clinic was renamed under the ownership and direction of Dr. Frodermann and Carol L. Seng, acupuncturist, in 2002.  We now welcome our second naturopathic physician, Dr. Chrysanthi Kazantzis.

“I’ve been going to Dr. Sheila for 16 years. Bowen treatment helps to maintain my scoliosis and relieves me of daily back pain. Very gentle & therapeutic. Highly recommend for any type of chronic ailments.”


“A very thoughtful and caring practice, never feels like you have anything less than their undivided attention.”


“I am a 54 year old woman who – for the past 13 years – struggled with CFS, fibromyalgia, inflamed joints, diverticulitis, hypothyroid and severe low back pain – all complicated by menopause. During this odyssey, conventional medicine offered me nothing but painful existence leaving me exhausted physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Today, 9 month of Dr. Frodermann’s integrative healthcare have given me my mobility and all but alleviated my back pain and balanced my body’s response to stress. Her relationship and care enabled her to unravel the source of my problems and address them at the core. She is a highly skilled physician and an intuitively compassionate healer.”

With gratitude and appreciation,


“Dr. Sheila, I just wanted to let you know I did great in Surgery.  I took oxycodone only  because they gave it to me in the hospital.  I didn’t even fill the prescription and I am doing fine on Tylenol and Advil.  I also had no nausea.  I  just so appreciate  your guidance.  Your recommendations really helped me get thru surgery.”

Sincerely H.S.

“Dr. Frodermann I am writing to let you know I am so incredibly happy!  I got my first menstrual cycle, where I was almost completely pain free.  This has not happened to me in 15 years.  I was actually in tears because I could not believe I am able to go to work and function as a normal human being.  I was able to get my work done!  You cannot even imagine the difference you made in my life.”

“I had never been to a Naturopathic Physician before & didn’t know what to expect.  I was having some health problems that I couldn’t get straightened out. Dr. Kaz quickly helped me identify some problems and offered some solutions. My health has improved dramatically. I find I’m very comfortable with Dr. Kaz’s approach to health and I continue to see her.”


“Working with Dr. Kaz has been life changing for me. After blood work confirmed food intolerances, she gave me the tools to help me be successful with making a lifestyle change. I never felt like I was on a diet. Meeting monthly helped motivate me to reach my short term goals. We would discuss food choices and exercise level, and I’d weigh in and compare progress. She also added in supplements that my body was lacking. I started feeling better immediately! I would highly recommend the blood type diet and working with Dr. Kaz. I’ve lost 50lbs doing it the right way.”


“There’s a quote that goes like this: “there are moments which mark your life. Moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same and time is divided into two parts – before this and after this.” For me, this moment was when I went to Dr. Kaz. Before seeing her, I felt sick, tired, and physically, mentally, and emotionally drained as I spent months and months trying to heal. She listened without judgment, shared her knowledge, and helped me create a plan that was individualized to my specific needs. Within weeks, I began to finally feel like myself again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“When I made my first appointment with Dr. Kaz in October 2017, I was seeking nutritional advice to improve my overall health.  During each appointment, Dr. Kaz guided me in creating realistic food plans that I have maintained.  I have lost 40 pounds and feel wonderful eating foods that works for me.  Thank you so much for your support, Dr. Kaz!”


“I have known and worked with Dr. Kaz for more than a year as a client . I have found her work and knowledge of the highest caliber. Her attention to detail was outstanding and her knowledge of Parkinson’s, which I have was very helpful to me. I would and have passed her name along to many friends who are seeking the outstanding services she provides.”
