Dr. Miles Nichols, DAOM, MSOM, LAc is the co-owner of Medicine with Heart, a clinic that serves people who are struggling with chronic illness to recover their health through functional medicine and mindfulness.

After recovering his health, Dr. Miles made it his mission to help others reverse chronic health concerns.
Dr. Miles is a national speaker and co-author of the book “Stress Resilience”.
