Just Ask Nish
Hi, I'm Nisha Jackson, PhD, MS, WHCNP, HHP. Health is more about natural balance than it is pharmaceutical relief or quick-fix treatments that merely scratch the surface of wellness. My past 18 years of research and personal patient care has proven me right. While many physicians suggest that certain symptoms are normal, psychosomatic, or just something patients must learn to live with, I offer patients the help and hope they want and need—but have been unable to find.
With a correct diagnosis, proper education, and a caring partnership between patient and provider, equilibrium and health can be fully restored. In my practice with mostly female patients, I first measure hormone levels. Based on the results, I introduce lifestyle modification techniques, over-the-counter supplements, and/or natural hormone replacements to restore balance and good health.
Restoring balance is a process that can take time and requires the patient’s full participation, but the results have been remarkable. My job is to identify the imbalance and provide practical methods that patients can use to help themselves.
My passion for women’s health began in 1991 when I realized that female patients were desperate to manage their hot flashes, PMS, low libido, menstrual irregularities, and other hormone-related symptoms. These women were stressed out, depressed, overweight, anxious, and oftentimes hopeless. With diet, exercise, and individualized hormonal treatments, women who were fatigued and feeling older than their biological age started to feel their absolute best!
I am a gynecological practitioner with a master's degree in nursing, a licensed holistic health care practitioner, and a certified hormone expert who has seen thousands of patients for hormone abnormalities in my Southern Oregon-based specialty practice. I founded and own Ventana Wellness PC, an integrative medical clinic dedicated to disease prevention, primary care, and hormonal health. I also founded The Body Analysis Clinic, which is a medically based weight-loss program that focuses on long-term results, with an emphasis on regaining health and feeling good!
In addition to my practice, I've established an online virtual hormone consulting service, which enables anyone with a computer and a telephone to receive hormone testing and one-on-one consultations, regardless of their location. Being involved with being a TV personality, national lecturer, and motivational speaker, I host a weekly live radio wellness programs, The Just Ask Nish Show.
Having authored two books “The Hormone Survival Guide to Perimenopause—How to Balance Your Hormones Naturally” and “Surviving the Teenage Hormone Takeover—A Guide for Moms," primary care emphasizing hormonal health has proven to work for both women and teenage girls.
With the right partnership, participation, and practical application, every female can feel better, look better, and be better.
