I mean, and I feel like to with medications, a lot of times, you know, I would see people get started with one, and then they end up adding more to counteract the side effects of the first one, and it just, it doesn't make logical sense, you know. Start with the body and support it so that it can heal. That makes sense.
Dr Nicole Robinson there are a lot, there's a lot of research and studies around reproductive health to that for women that have very heavy, painful periods or irregular cycles, a lot of that can be traced back to poor gut health as well. Poor, you know, bladder function can be connected to the gut, then, you know, thyroid issues, too, there's a lot to say that there are parasites and bacterial infections that can affect the thyroid. So, I do try to tell them that, you know, even if you're not having symptoms in your digestive area, per se, it still could be causing problems elsewhere in the body.
Dr Nicole Robinson I would just tell them that if they are frustrated, and this is their last resort, to not lose hope, and to keep an open mind, especially about holistic healing in how we start from supporting the body so that it can heal itself.
ABOUT DR NICOLE ROBINSON:
Dr. Nicole Robinson is a licensed pharmacist, Functional Medicine Practitioner and certified Mercier Therapist. She began her career in 2011 as an Army Pharmacist, working in several hospitals and clinics around the United States. After 6 years of service, she transitioned back into civilian life and continued her pharmacy career at a community CVS pharmacy. She enjoyed being a pharmacist, but wondered if there was a more holistic approach to health she could incorporate to better serve people. This curiosity led her to achieve certification as a Functional Medicine Practitioner in 2020 and go on to partner with a chiropractor to bring Functional Medicine to her local community. Her focus has been Women’s Health at all stages, specifically preparation for conception using Mercier Therapy but also hormone imbalances and menopausal support.
Core purpose/passion: My mission is to inspire, educate and coach women to the healthiest version of themselves using Functional Medicine. I want to give women the knowledge and tools to maintain health and pass this on to future generations. I am most passionate about helping women going through infertility. Experiencing infertility personally was what fueled me to want to get healthy using a natural approach. I believe that personal experience has helped me better understand what these women are going through and will allow me to care for them from a truly genuine, authentic place.
