When I came in for the blood draw last week, everyone with whom I had contact was polite, cheerful and professional.

Dr. Nickels and staff have definitely been a great asset in helping me to determine the causes of my health issues. Through recommended supplements and a no-nonsense eating plan, I am on my way to feeling better every day. I’m looking forward to feeling my best and am anxious to start every day with renewed hope.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 25. I went through traditional chemo and was not recovering well from the treatments. I saw Dr. Nickels and we did different testing looking at my immune system, vitamin levels, and hormonal levels. The focus of treatment with Dr. Nickels was to feel better and prevent further health problems. After we addressed all the abnormalities found from the testing results, I came back to see Dr. Nickels in 6 weeks feeling the best I had felt in years prior to the cancer! Thank you, Dr. Nickels!

Dear Dr. Nickels,

I just wanted to thank you for all you have done for our family. I want you to know we greatly appreciate the excellent care you gave Jason. He came with many health challenges and you always took time for him. I realize that this is your job, but you have always exceeded that expectation.

Dr. Nickels is a miracle healer! I had an upper respiratory infection and laryngitis for an extended period of time. With different modalities, including acupuncture I felt better instantly. I have also had difficulty over the years with stomach issues including gastroparesis, which causes much nausea, vomiting and stomach pain. Once Dr. Nickels put her healing hands to work, especially with acupuncture, I have seen and felt much improvement-more than I have in years! Dr. Nickels is literally saving me and my life. She is the best doctor ever! Thanks a billion.

I have visited chiropractors, as needed, for the past 50 years. In doing so, I’ve seen techniques change and evolve. With Dr. Blazek, the end result is a gentle, hands-on, amazingly effective method. It continually surprises me that I can mention where I feel discomfort, and with a few precise movements, the problem is solved. My treatments end with me feeling relieved, relaxed and refreshed. He helps keep me active and functioning at a very satisfactory level for age 83. Dr. Blazek is a treasure.

I am so blessed to have met Dr. Nickels. I have saved so much money on prescriptions and co pays. The proactive wellness approach has proven to be a wonderful investment in my health. I will be a patient of Dr. Nickels until she retires—now onto phase two—weight loss.

Dr. Nickels and Total Staff, I am so blessed & thankful to have a caring, knowledgeable & skillful doctor & the friendliness & warmth of the staff make it the best!

After taking the supplements for a couple of days, I felt an immediate difference. The fuzziness lifted and I have my energy back. First time in at least a year! I’m up at my regular time in the morning… awake…. and going strong into the evening. Don’t know if it is designed to work that quickly, but it did for me. You hit a home run… thank you!

After years of harsh fertility medications and imbalanced hormones I decided to find a naturopath to get things balanced. I was lucky enough that my search ended with Dr. Nickels.

Within a month of seeing Dr. Nickels, I was better informed about my hormones then after five years of high priced fertility specialists. I started to resume normal cycles the following month and have stayed this way for the past six months. This is nothing short of a miracle for my body.

After years of not being listened to, being tested for who-knows-what, and never finding results or relief, I gave up “traditional medicine” and sought natural methods with Dr. Nickels. She holistically evaluated me—not just my current symptoms—and diagnosed me with something that my “traditional doctors” missed for decades. With her natural remedies, I have felt whole again! Regardless of whether it’s managing a serious illness, relieving pain, or food/seasonal allergy relief, Dr. Nickel’s recommendations have worked wonders on me!

I came to see Dr. Nickels for significant hair loss. I tried every medical treatment without success. Dr. Nickels took the time to listen to my story, figured out what was causing the hair loss, and 1 month later, my hair loss is gone and is growing back thicker! Integrative medicine REALLY WORKS!

My daughter and I have had excellent results at IFWC. We were both eliminating about 30 foods while she was nursing to avoid constant rashes, hives and behavior problems. We can now eat everything!

Dr. Nickels brings her whole heart to everything she does. She is a wonderful practitioner and naturopathic physician, and has a warm, effective way with children and adults. I would recommend her to anyone needing the subtle work of naturopathic medicine. Her work is informed by her ability to listen deeply to one’s being and body… and should not be missed!

A small gesture of thanks is inadequate in comparison to all you have done for me. You have compassion and a kind heart. God has gifted you and in turn blessed me, through that gift. Thank you, Dr. Nickels, for being my doctor, and thank you for your help and encouragement.

I am encouraged to work with Dr. Nickels as she goes about getting to the root of a group of health and aging issues that other specialists have just not been able to engage in and solve. She is a smart, caring, reasonable and thorough health professional that has taken the time to really understand the problems and sort through possible solutions. I appreciate her approach and strategy to improve my health, and that of my two adult children. We are peeling away difficult chemistry, environmental toxins, lifestyle, aging, and foundational nutrition challenges that give us all hope, and thus far, much needed results.

IFW has been very helpful to me. Dr. Nickels is extremely knowledgeable and helpful with so many ways to treat various concerns without the use of prescription medication.

I came to Integrative a few years ago for shoulder pain. Dr. Blazek has done an amazing job in helping me relieve the pain and now it’s almost completely gone! I then hurt myself sledding with my kids and broke my tailbone. He has helped me be able to be pain free with that as well! The whole office is amazing; everyone I have met here brings a smile to my face. The work Dr. Blazek does and the atmosphere here keeps me coming back and sharing with friends.

I came to Dr. Nickels and IFW about a year ago for treatment of chronic illness. Other doctors had shrugged me off or given up when I proved to be too challenging for them. I needed someone who could think outside the box and work with my unique circumstances to design innovative, holistic care.

Dr. Nickels, Dr. Blazek, and the staff at IFW have met that challenge with enthusiasm and a willingness to listen. If you are also struggling to find quality healthcare to alleviate your problems, I recommend checking out IFW Center.

Integrative Family Wellness Center has dramatically improved and impacted the lives of everyone I have referred to Dr. Nickels. Whether my daughter’s hormone issues, my close relative’s depression, friend’s ulcerative colitis, my son’s chiropractic needs and sleep problems, or my own perimenopause symptoms, each one has been cared for with compassion, efficiency, and empathy. I with there was a Dr. Nickels in every city in this country- I’m so thankful my sister referred us!

I started coming to Integrative to see Dr. Nickels- she has done amazing things- no bronchitis, no asthma, regular bowel movements- health!!

I started coming to see Dr. Blazek for a foot stress fracture- miraculous recovery & feeling so healthy in my foot/ hands/ hips. I’ve referred many friends to see both Dr. Nickels & Dr. Blazek!

Having experienced a myriad of annoying physical symptoms for several years, I was feeling helpless and hopeless. That is, until I had my first visit with Dr. Nickels. At the end of my first visit, she introduced me to Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. My symptoms, most of them, were listed for this condition. Fatigue, weakness, insomnia, body rashes, facial flushing, itching, and anxiety to name a few. Within a short time after starting selected supplements, I feel like a new person. I don’t feel like an “old lady” anymore!!  Thank you Dr. Nickels!

Dr. Blazek has done a wonderful job of improving my back and flexibility. I started out really stiff, then after treatments, I am feeling much better with improved range of motion.

Dr Nickels consistently knocks it out of the park!! Thank you for restoring my health!!
