Full NameMadrona Integrative Health
LocationIn-person in Ganges or Telemedicine

Following a cozy winter’s maternity leave, Nicole van Poelgeest, ND has resumed her naturopathic practice at Madrona and is accepting bookings for current and new patients. In her own words,

“Dear Patients,

I’m excited to announce I’m returning to practice after the birth of our first child, Samuel Sky! To start, I will be at Madrona on Wednesdays with the plan to increase availability soon. My initiation into motherhood has reminded me how vital it is to prioritize health and wellness (not always an easy task — I know!). With this in mind, I look forward to reconnecting with you and continuing to support your health goals.



Part of the Madrona Integrative Health team since early 2022, Dr. Nicole van Poelgeest is a naturopathic physician with a passion for women’s health, acting as an advocate and ally while providing treatment in areas such as:

Transition periods unique to menopause & fertility (including fertility concerns & perinatal care)
Menstrual issues such as PMS, endometriosis, and PCOS
Autoimmune conditions
Digestive issues
Skin problems
Naturopathic cancer support

Naturopathic doctors are also trained to do primary care, and can offer one solution to the current lack of GPs locally. All of the NDs at Madrona believe in integrative medicine and utilize tools across the spectrum from conventional to alternative medical approaches.

In her own practice, Nicole approaches her patients’ well-being with the philosophy that health is not simply the absence of disease. She works alongside them to restore equilibrium to body, mind, and spirit and believes that when these elements are balanced, one begins to feel what it truly means to be healthy: to have vitality in one’s life and to feel whole.

Integrating the wisdom of traditional medicines with current research, she uses herbal, nutritional, and when necessary, pharmaceutical remedies to tailor treatment to the individual. While naturopathic doctors are trained in a variety of therapeutic interventions, Nicole’s clinical interest lies in herbal medicine, nutrition, IV treatment, acupuncture, and the mind/body connection. She uses these therapies to co-create customized health plans with her patients. In addition, visits with Nicole can be conducted in working level French.

If you would like to book an appointment with Nicole, please visit our online booking page, https://madronahealth.janeapp.com/. If you’re having difficulty finding a spot, we encourage you to phone the clinic - we’re happy to help.

Ask us about the Madrona Care Card program for ongoing discounts on treatments and services at all Madrona Integrative Health locations.

Updated mask-wearing policy: As face masks are no longer required in health care settings in BC, mask wearing is now optional in the clinic. However if you are exhibiting any symptoms of respiratory illness (ie. cough, sore throat, etc), we continue to require that you wear a medical/triple-layer mask. Disposable masks are available in the clinic. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as our policies have evolved to meet provincial requirements and changing times.
