No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point in their lives. If you do not let a doctor give you regular check-ups, some preventable illnesses or ailments could be left undiagnosed. Your primary care physician can address most of your medical issues and help you achieve and maintain your health goals. Dr. Nicolle welcomes the opportunity to work with patients who leverage preventive and integrative therapies to support health, manage, and even cure some illnesses.
“You are what you eat.” Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals to live, grow, and function properly. Eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet is vital for good health and wellbeing. Your diet can lower your risk of over 25 chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), lower inflammation in your body, boost your energy and productivity, help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, and improve your sleep. “Food as Medicine” is no longer a fringe idea, but has been proven to prevent, treat, and reverse several chronic diseases. Dr. Nicolle will assist you in finding healthy diet options to suit your needs.
Physical activity (or exercise) can improve your health and reduce the risk of developing several chronic diseases like high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and cancer, just to name a few. Physical activity can improve your mood, boost your immune system, and even help you maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Nicolle will assist you in creating an exercise plan appropriate for your health goals.
The concept that the mind is important in health and illness dates back to ancient times. Mind-body therapies focus on the interactions among the brain, the rest of the body, the mind, and behavior; and the ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experiential, and behavioral factors can directly affect health. Some examples of mind-body medicine practices are meditation, hypnosis, tai chi, and yoga. Dr. Nicolle is an advocate for incorporating mind-body therapies into your daily practice to achieve optimal health. Dr. Nicolle will assist you in finding a therapy (or therapies) that suits your needs.
The environment in which we live is a major determinant of our health and wellbeing. Environmental responsibilities and policies are essential in helping people make better, healthier choices. Clean air, water, soil, plants, and food supplies are essential for our personal health. The environment’s effect on our health is complicated, but there are ways that we can reduce toxic exposure. Dr. Nicolle will identify ways in which you can improve your current living environment, as well as mitigate the health risks when traveling abroad.
I want to tell you how Dr. Nicolle helped me. I’m 70 years old and have type 2 diabetes. Before I would take a lot of medicine and felt pain, irritable bowel syndrome, confusion, fatigue, depression and more. Whenever I go to a specialist they would just prescribe more medications – only targeting the symptoms rather than the real cause. Then, I met Dr. Nicolle she informed me that the effects I was experiencing may be caused by the prescriptions I was taking. She made me a plan to reduce and simplify my medications. Since deprescribing, my health is very clearly improved, my energy is better, and I can get around better than before. I’d highly recommend Dr. Nicolle to all my family and friends.
The journey to wellness continues. Since starting, I have seen my weight dropped from 350 lbs to 200 lbs, coupled with marked improvements in my physical and mental health. I can do things today that I never dreamt possible and that’s a testament to the tips and techniques Dr. Nicolle gave and everything I’ve learned from her. Thank you, Dr. Nicolle for truly giving me my life back!
You are awesome Dr. Nicolle! I have always been able to talk to you and get my problems resolved. You’re like a trusted family. I would not consider changing doctors. Thank you for being so compassionate.
Thank you very much, Dr. Nicolle. I want to express my sincere appreciation to be treated with professionalism and care. You made me feel that I was in safe hands. I am truly grateful and wont get that awful feeling of dread the next time I get sick. A big thank you to you.
Hi Dr Nicolle! I am writing to thank you because I felt that I got the best possible treatment! I might not be healthy and well now if you didn’t listen and assist. I go to you and follow your diagnosis and recommended treatment! Thank you again for being very caring and concerned!
We noticed our mother was no longer lively and chatty but thanks to you, Dr. Nicolle, for helping us to carefully reduce the doses of unnecessary or inappropriate medications given to our mother. Deprescribing gave our mom back! She’s finally returned to the bright and engaged woman that we remembered.
Dr. Nicolle has changed my life. I lost over 10 pounds, but more than that I have gained so much knowledge and strength; both physically and mentally. It’s been an amazing experience.
This journey has been more than weight loss for me. Dr. Nicolle has given me the tools I needed to lose over 20 pounds and cope with emotions in a healthy way. Thank you, Dr. Nicolle!
