Dr. Michele Nickels ND, LAc
Dr. Nickels of Integrative Family Wellness is honored to have helped so many patients achieve better health.
I no longer worry about diverticulitis, hot flashes, acne or TMJ! Dr. Nickels visits are not only fun but more importantly educational! She has such an amazing way to make sense of any symptom and has a natural cure!
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 great doctor of integrative medicine! At the glowing recommendation of a coworker, I had an appointment with Dr. Nickels, who is friendly and approachable. For context, I was not expecting to be impressed by Dr. Nickels, since I’ve always been quite leary of integrative medicine (I grew up in a medical family that sneered at floofy, new-age medicine), so I’m pretty surprised by how much of a convert I am now! I’ve discovered that integrative medicine looks toward proactively helping your body be well, rather than stumble around trying to fix it once it’s sick. Pretty cool approach, and I can definitely see the benefit of it!
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 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.
I have been a patient at IFWC for approximately five years. Dr. Nickels is my naturopathic doctor and I have been excellently treated with her various fields of expertise which include not only general medicine but naturopathy and acupuncture as well.
I have a number of potentially serious health issues for which I also am compelled to have a number of “specialty” doctors who deal exclusively with these issues, but Dr. Nickels oversees and coordinates all the treatments for which I am extremely grateful.
She is the one ultimately who looks at me as an individual and who works with me to establish a treatment plan that takes into account who I am and what is best for ME.
I can’t emphasize enough the personal attention all patients receive from the extremely capable office staff to the nurses and certainly from the practitioners themselves. I feel comfortable when I leave the office that I have been heard and that whatever treatment plan has been established is one most conducive to my total health and well-being.
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. Nickels’ 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!
I developed acute anxiety coupled with panic attacks this past year in my mid-sixties. Conventional approaches with western medicine did not work very well. Psychotherapy and limited hypnotherapy were helpful but did not eliminate the anxiety. It was still interfering with my life. While still frustrated, I was referred to IFWC by my psychotherapist. After a very thorough evaluation by Dr. Nickels, I eagerly pursued Naturopathic Therapy courses of treatment. Significant relief came quickly. My panic attacks have ceased and the anxiety is much more under control. Dr. Nickels is very skilled, caring and thorough. With only 3 months of treatment, I have been very happy with the results.
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.
Dr. Nickels is fantastic. I love taking a holistic approach toward preventative health care. Watch her Nickels 2 Cents videos on YouTube- some great information there!
I am forever grateful. I have been to general practitioners my entire life with stomach issues always getting the run around and no answers. As I age they are getting much worse along with a string of other seemingly non-related symptoms. I went to Dr. Nickels and explained some of my symptoms and she offered me a simple supplement that nearly everyone could use more of. I was very skeptical as I felt I have tried everything under the sun but I took it and within hours some of my “ non related” symptoms including anxiety started to disappear. A few weeks later my gut is on the mend and I have not double over in pain since (which had become a daily occurrence after any meal). Dr. Nickels has dramatically changed my life with her knowledge and expertise. Thank you!
You are best Naturopathic doctor! Thank you for always doing what is right for your patients! Thank you for always doing your due diligence! Thank you for always being upfront and honest! You are the BEST! Thank you for being you!!
If there’s a doubt with a diagnosis from your regular family physician that you want a second opinion, I strongly recommend seeing Dr. Nickels! Her medical expertise as a naturopathic doctor clarifies what the medical mainstream family physician is not trained or educated to identify. Please see Dr. Nickels. She truly cares about you and has dedicated her life into finding the truth of your medical condition. I am so happy that my friend recommended Dr. Nickels to me. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and my family physician was ordering me to go on statins, and that’s when I saw Dr. Nickels. She went a step further and discovered that I didn’t need to go on statins, according to what my blood test revealed. After you see Dr. Nickels you won’t want to see the family physician again.
Dr Nickels really spends time listening to her patients. She has a positive attitude about the body and its ability to heal. I just love her!!
I started seeing Dr. Nickels after a friend told me about the help she was getting. After years of having an upset stomach and seeing a family doctor, a gastroenterologist, an Allergy specialist, I knew I had to advocate for myself and try something different. I found the thyroid medicine I had been on for 18 years was not helping. I found I’m not sensitive to gluten and dairy, I just need a digestive enzyme to help. I found if I get my belly in good health, I can get my brain in good health, and then focus on losing weight. I also found I needed more vitamin D so I wouldn’t struggle to get through the month of January without enough sunshine. I will turn 50 in 4 months and plan to celebrate feeling the best I have felt in many years. I am forever grateful for finding IFWC.
Thank you so much for what you do! I feel so much better than I did at our first meeting! -Lynda
Dr. Nickels is wonderful, she helped me to get healthier, and then my husband went to her and she helped him as well. Highly recommend.
Dr. Michelle Nickels is amazing! Love her… love that it’s about making me well, and not just herding another patient through.
