At three months old, our son started turning red/white splotchy. Taking our son to Dr. Nina was a relief to be told that there was a problem and that our son did seem to be reacting to food. Following the plan was difficult, but I had a happy baby again that did not spit up nor look splotchy. He slept properly again. His poops were back to three to five daily. Life for little one (and us) was fabulous once again. To this day, people are amazed at his wide range of palate, his bountiful energy and great health. By the time we saw an allergy specialist at the age of 13 months, most of the allergies had dissipated. I refer Dr. Nina often to those who wish to become a parent(s), have medical issues that traditional doctors are unable to resolve, and/or women who are in pain for specific women's health issues. I have appreciated the medical and naturopathic background that she brings to each consult."
I have been seeing Dr. Lewis for close to 5 years - and through 2 pregnancies. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable, she has an excellent bedside manner (which is equally important to me). I find her considerate of her clients' personal situations and she balances that with her treatment recommendations. She is open-minded and open to discussions. Dr. Lewis is a part of my family's health care team and we are all healthier for it!"
I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Nina Lewis. I find that she listens well, cares for the whole person, not just the physical, and works very hard to find unique and leading edge solutions to aid in healing. She has been a caring & supportive resource for me and I highly respect her judgement. I recommend Dr. Nina highly."
“My acupuncturist gave me two names when I asked for a referral for a naturopath as mine had left the city. As well, my husband and I were trying to conceive. When looking at both blurbs on the referrals, we were impressed with Dr. Nina's broad background. It was so encouraging to have a plan in place to see what could be done to enhance fertility. After much persuasion, our family doctor sent hubby for a sperm test and his tests came back with concerns. Daily "sperm pills" for my hubby prescribed by Dr. Nina were the ticket and we were pregnant within two months. She assisted me in pregnancy support and post recovery. Many were surprised at my quick "post recovery". Dr. Nina's knowledge assisted us in having a family sooner, a great pregnancy, a birthing experience that was life-changing and was an integral part of our amazing birthing team. She was just as important for our second child's journey into our arms and hearts. I refer Dr. Nina often to those I meet and know as there is a less invasive way and less expensive way in becoming a parent. She has helped my friends and colleagues with women's health issues as I share her belief that one does not need to suffer just because you are a woman. She brings to each consult a diverse background, compassion and understanding as well as information from current medical studies.”
I am a 57 year old white female, overweight with diabetes type two. I went to see Dr. Lewis for weight control and help bringing my blood sugars down. Dr. Lewis first started off by listening to what I had to say and then she asked me questions. Not once did she say anything negative, always positive. We talked about a specific diet and how to get the blood sugars down. She also started me on a schedule of cinnamon and some other supplements three times a day which worked to bring my blood sugars down and also helped me lose weight. We worked on a gentle exercise program of walking and chair exercises. I remember telling Dr. Lewis that I would be lucky to walk two steps out my front door. She smiled and said that it was at least two steps further then yesterday. I am up to walking more than two steps today because of Dr. Lewis. Dr. Lewis is the best support you can have no matter what is going on in your life. I believe in my heart that if you see Dr. Lewis just once you will never see anyone else."
I came to Dr. Nina Lewis with chronic stomach challenges due to stomach ulcers. I arrived as a skeptic who had seen about six doctors both natural and conventional in order to try to find a cure for my digestive problems. Dr. Nina Lewis was the first doctor to get me off anti-acid medications. I had been continually on anti-acids for over ten years! My husband and I wanted to have children and I wanted to be healthy before we started trying! We now have a beautiful four month old baby boy!"
My experience with Dr. Lewis over the past year has been amazing. Her wealth of knowledge in naturopathic medicine is only complemented and enhanced by her training in traditional medicine. I originally started seeing her to deal with digestive issues that she was able to cure quickly without a variety of expensive tests and supplements. Eventually my reasons for seeing Dr. Lewis changed as my husband and I were trying to start a family and my progesterone was low. Dr. Lewis provided me with a holistic treatment and within six months my husband and I were able to conceive. She is also providing support to me during my pregnancy, addressing all my needs and requests. I find Dr. Lewis more responsive and helpful than any family doctor I have ever dealt with. I strongly recommend Dr. Lewis to anyone – her practical and logical approach to treating patients makes working with her very easy and enjoyable, and is great for those that are new to naturopathic medicine."
After suffering from a ruptured appendix and the aftermath of a misdiagnosis, I needed someone who could get me back on track. I have seen multiple specialists, naturopaths, and doctors, but Dr. Nina was the first one to listen to my story and not just look at my medical file. Taking the natural route of healing usually takes much longer than a medicinal route, however I am sensitive to medications so Dr. Nina found supplements that directly targeted my damaged small intestines. Being someone who is impatient it was amazing to have Dr. Nina’s positive attitude toward my healing process and seeing the positive results together. I have not felt this strong and healthy since prior to my ruptured appendix in 2008. We are still working together to heal my small intestines but it is amazing how far I have come in 6 months. I definitely recommend Dr. Nina to anyone, she took a personal interest in my case which made me feel connected to a doctor for the first time.”
I feel truly blessed to have met Dr. Nina Lewis. Unlike so many other doctors who had failed me, Dr. Lewis was able to diagnose my ailment with ease. Technically, she is exceptional, but it is her humanity that has inspired me the most. She is a deeply compassionate and warm soul, and I feel that I am able to move forward and meet my health issues head-on with confidence and hope knowing she is right there with me.”
Working with Dr. Nina is the best thing I could have done for my health. When I first met her I was a fussy eater, with a poor diet and multiple excuses about my eating and exercise habits. Dr. Nina has helped me to transform, not only physically, but also my thinking. She helped me to identify which foods were making me feel unwell, and then worked with me on a customized, step by step plan to include healthier options and develop new eating and exercise habits. Rather than telling me to give up all the foods I used to love, Dr. Nina worked at my pace, gradually encouraging me to introduce new foods, and change my routine. Dr. Nina excels at motivating, guiding, educating and encouraging, and with these skills no goal seems unreachable. With her help and always positive attitude, I find myself believing and achieving things I never thought possible. I am the healthiest I have ever been – I am eating better, have increased energy levels, improved sleep, less colds, less pain, improved confidence and have lost a significant amount of weight during the process. In the search for optimal health and wellness, there is no better support than Dr. Nina.”
