Dr. Nicola McFadzean Ducharme


Naturopathic Doctor

AUTHOR of The Lyme Diet

San Diego, California

I’m a wife, mother, author and naturopathic doctor.

I am the owner and medical director of an integrative medical practice called RestorMedicine here in San Diego where I work with all types of different conditions, from autism to preconception health care to Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is a complex and multi-factorial illness, and subsequently there is no straight-forward, one-size-fits-all approach to treating it. My approach blends western medicine with traditional naturopathic therapies and I’ve written a number of books on the subject including The Lyme Diet: Nutritional Strategies for Healing from Lyme Disease, Lyme Disease in Australia: Fundamentals of an Emerging Epidemic, and The Beginner’s Guide to Lyme Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment Made Simple.

I live in San Diego with my husband, Dave, our beautiful daughter Valentina, and our two dogs.I’m the creator of Naturopathic Mama, a blog where I share information that I’ve gathered along the way on a variety of topics – nutrition, medicine, essential oils, fertility, parenting, work-life balance and a host of other things.
