Dr. Nate Heilman
Nathan C. Heilman, DVM, CVA
Dr. Nate is a 1997 graduate of Cornell University’s veterinary college. He practiced mixed animal veterinary medicine for 10 years, before focusing more on companion animal practice. Unsatisfied with the ability of our Western conventional medicine to prevent disease, or treat chronic conditions, he enrolled in the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society’s (IVAS) course to gain an understanding of Eastern medicine and its philosophy. Shortly after this course, he received further training in Chinese herbal medicine. He is a guest lecturer at the Introductory Course on Chinese herbal medicine for veterinarians in Chicago.
Nate has trained in the martial arts (Oom Yung Doe) for 15 years to further expand his appreciation for, and understanding of, Eastern philosophy. He practices at his holistic Qi Veterinary Clinic in South Burlington, Vermont. He believes that whole foods, regular exercise, working with nature, and healthy relationships are the keys to maintaining health. He lives in New Haven with his wife Therese, their two children Emmaline and Giles, dog Sugah, cats Mineau and Blushy, and three Scottish Highland cattle.
