Nanci Miklowski, ND, MEd
Dr. Nanci became interested in naturopathic and functional medicine after years of dealing with her own health issues. She struggled with digestive issues, chronic fatigue, frequent headaches, and intensely painful periods since a young age. She quickly became discouraged with conventional medicine since she could never get an answer for my symptoms. The only option she was offered were prescriptions, which often didn’t help or caused other symptoms. She lost all hope when she told her doctor that cutting out certain foods improved her symptoms and was told it was likely a coincidence. This is when she started looking for other solutions.
When Dr. Nanci discovered naturopathic medicine, she knew it was not only the right fit for her health problems but she wanted it to be her career. She is extremely passionate about helping women who struggle with digestive concerns and hormone imbalances get the answer to why they are experiencing their symptoms. She helps her patients find the root cause of their health concerns with assistance of functional medicine labs and then provides natural solutions so they can finally feel better.
Dr. Nanci lives in the Cleveland area to be close to friends and family. Although she lives in Ohio, most of her patients live in other states (learn more here). When she's not working, you can find her enjoying the outdoors with her partner, daughter, and dog.
