Nicole Hoff, Physician Assistant

Nicole Hoff, Physician Assistant Unapologetically changing how healthcare is done. Your health is in your hands. I am here to help. She has lived in Spring with her family since Aug. 2017.

Nicole Hoff is Board Certified Physician Assistant (PA) and a graduate of the Yale University School of Medicine’s PA Program. When deciding what kind of PA, she wanted to be she said: "I really want to do something “family friendly” so my kiddos can stop sharing their mom so much. But I also want to be able to pray for my patients, and WITH my patients. I don’t want insurance to dictate the care

I give, and I want the services my patients receive to be affordable. I want to prescribe lavender oil, exercise, and sunshine—just as much as I do metformin, ibuprofen, and prozac. And I want to be respected by coallegues if I say to a patient: 'your healthcare decisions are yours,' 'God is the great physician,' or 'just put breastmilk on it!' "

Before becoming a PA, Nicole graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Maternal and Child Health specializing in lactation. For over 15 years, she empowered families as a midwife assistant, doula, childbirth educator, and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Later while serving as a hospital chaplain, Nicole discovered a passion for helping others who do not know where to begin — families bringing a first child into the world, suffering a loss, or who have no access to care. Driven by her desire to integrate compassionate mental health care intuitively into pediatrics and primary care, Nicole aims to provide affordable, accessible mental healthcare and primary care. And of course, she can’t wait to get back to doing well woman and lactation care visits as well! Nicole is also excited to complete her Doctorate of Medical Science in December through Shenandoah University. Her doctoral project is to find a way to incorporate Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) screening into primary care as a standard of care. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 4 children (ages 20, 17, 12, 10) in the North Houston TX area or in serving her hometown community of the Rio Grande Valley. The Hoff family has a motto “Know Him and make Him known.” They attend Declaration Church in Spring, TX. At Rife Pediatrics & Family Care, Nicole provides Primary Care for adults and children, Mental Healthcare and Women’s Care.

🌿 Hello + Happy Saturday ! 🌿Let’s talk about something NOT** too often talked about on a Saturday afternoon 🤣: ASD, PANS/PANDAs, Inflammation, fatigue, brain fog, mood, + fertility to name a few…
❓And what may be a good option to support these conditions and their symptoms ??

As a Physician Assistant specializing in holistic care, I often prescribe a little-known but highly effective treatment called Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). 🌱 While I always try to use all-natural things and supplements, sometimes a well studied prescription is needed—and when used correctly it can be just as safe as a natural remedy orsupplement.

💊For LDN: The mechanism of action involves modulating the immune system and reducing inflammation. The literature suggests a wide range of benefits, from improved pain management to enhanced immune function. 📚 Skip to the end if you just want to see the science and to see if I am wearing a tin-foil hat!

❓Soooo….. Why would you want to take this prescription pill?
Well, it….
❤️‍🩹Modulates the immune system
📍Increases endorphin levels up to 3x
↘️Lowers markers of inflammation in the body
⚖️Encourages weight loss
😖Strong clinical evidence in reducing chronic pain
🧠Reduces fatigue + brain fog (hello, moms toddlers + teens.)
🥰May improve overall mood and feeling of well-being
🍔May reduce food cravings

Unlike other treatments, Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) works WITH your immune system—not against it—empowering your body to create its own therapeutic effects.

🎬 If you're interested in understanding the science and testimonials (al ot on ASD) behind LDN, I highly recommend watching "The LDN Story Documentary": https://www.agelessrx.com/post/the-ldn-story-documentary

📺 For more in-depth conversations from medical professionals on the topic, take a look at this Vimeo video: https://vimeo.com/170349098

🎧 And for those of you who prefer auditory learning, tune in to the [Strive for Great Health Podcast]https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/strive-for-great-health-podcast/id1484574077?i=1000551834365 for an enriching discussion on LDN from a pharmacist who became an MD and then became a lifestyle medicine doc.

💡 More Specific Benefits of LDN💡
1. Anti-Inflammatory: LDN acts as an antagonist to certain receptors, helping to reduce inflammation.
2. Autoimmune Support: By modulating T and B cells, LDN can be beneficial for autoimmune diseases.
3. Mental Health: Preliminary studies suggest LDN can assist in improving mood disorders. Personally it has helped my Insomia and decreased my stress levels immensely. The documentary above discusses its use for Austism, which also suggests it can be helpful for kiddos with PANS/PANDAs, anxiety, and depression.
4. Pain Management: A growing body of research indicates that LDN can be effective for certain types of chronic pain.
5. Cancer Support: Some studies propose LDN can slow down the proliferation of cancer cells, although further research is needed.

📝Still reading? Then you can hear about even more benefits …
⚕️Prescribed for 40+ years with outstanding safety record
✅FDA approved to treat op**te dependencies & obesity
Dosages for (LDN)—4.5mg/day is the most common
🌿Exhibits novel & paradoxical effects for a variety of conditions
🦠Used to treat autoimmune diseases & viral infections since 1985

👶 For The Kids
For our younger patients, LDN can be given as a topical paste/cream, making it easier for children to take!

———-
🧬Want to see the science ?

How Does it Work?
LDN first binds to opioid receptors. In doing so, it helps to displace the body’s naturally-produced OGF. As LDN displaces OGF receptors, affected cells become OGF-deficient and, as a result, three vital processes occur:
1-Receptor production is increased to try to capture more OGF
2-Receptor sensitivity is increased to capture more OGF
3-Production of OGF is increased to compensate for the perceived shortage of OGF
Since LDN will only block OGF receptors for three to five hours, the body experiences a rebound effect—which greatly increases the production and utilization of OGF. Once the LDN has fallen off the OGF receptors and excreted, the increased number of endorphins bind to the now more-sensitive and more-plentiful receptors. As a result, these new and improved receptors assist in regulating cell growth— promoting healing, reducing inflammation, and increasing immunity and autophagy.

Fibromyalgia:
​A cohort study showed additional support “Low-dose naltrexone reduced fibromyalgia symptoms in the entire cohort, with a greater than 30% reduction of symptoms over placebo.”
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19453963/

Cancer:
A case report and discussion published in Cureus: “Clinical trials have proposed a unique mechanism(s) allowing LDN to affect tumors including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) at the cellular level by augmenting the immune system.”
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6126779/

MS:
A retrospective study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology evaluates links between LDN and quality of life in 215 MS patients : https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26203498/

Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis:
A study of Crohn’s Disease patients published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology showed that after 4 weeks on 4.5mg LDN, 81% of patients exhibited a response to therapy and 67% achieved a remission (P < 0.001). Improvement was recorded in both quality of life surveys with LDN compared with baseline. No laboratory abnormalities were noted. The most common side effect was sleep disturbances, occurring in seven patients.
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17222320/

Inflammation: ​
Clinical Rheumatology published a review of multiple studies stating their findings that naltrexone “reduces the production of reactive oxygen species and other potentially neuroexcitatory and neurotoxic chemicals…and reduces ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) a common marker of inflammation.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3962576/

Weight loss:
A study on hyperandrogenic women found “that using Naltrexone actually helped to lower fasting insulin levels by up to 40%.”
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/9831304/

Fertility:
A study of women with ovarian failure “who were treated with LDN resulted in a 74% pregnancy and live birth rate.”

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/13912853_Successful_induction_of_ovulation_in_normogonadotrophic_clomiphene_resistant_anovulatory_women_by_combined_naltrexone_and_clomiphene_citrate_treatment

Now google these Published Clinical Studies Showing Support for LDN:
1. Glial cell modulation (Younger et al, 2014)
2. Tumor cell growth suppression (Donahue et al, 2011; Liu et al, 2016)
3. Increased Interleukin (IL-2), a major anti-inflammatory cytokine (Zijian et al, 2018)
4. Induces autophagy (Pukab and Lansberg, 2018)
5. Reduction of oxidative stress (Almansa et al, 2013)

Exciting news! 🎉 A recent study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants shows that the public has a super favorable opinion of Physician Assistants (PAs) like me! 🙌

🌟 The research, conducted by NCCPA, revealed that nearly 67% of people have been treated by a PA. Guess what? A whopping 91% of them were super satisfied with their experience and 85% would choose to see a PA again for their medical needs.

🌍 Not only do people trust us, but they're also willing to recommend PAs to others—71.8% would do so! 👏 The study also goes beyond just medical settings, giving a comprehensive view of how the general public feels about PAs.

📊 The survey included more than 1,400 participants across the U.S., representing all ages, sexes, races, and more. Even those who haven’t seen a PA yet are mostly open to it; only 4.3% said they wouldn't consider it.

📚 While the public seems to trust PAs, there's still room for education—about 20% of the people said they needed to learn more about what PAs can do.

📈 And did you know? The PA profession is booming! We've seen a 76% growth in the last decade.

🌱 This is great news not just for PAs, but also for policymakers and insurers. Understanding how much you all trust us helps make better healthcare decisions for everyone.

🌼 Mental Health Note🌼

As a PA dedicated to your physical health, I strongly feel “the best care” starts with your mental health. I'd like to shed some light on Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). This is a specialized branch of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) designed specifically for those grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If you've experienced trauma, CPT offers tools to recognize and challenge any negative beliefs or thoughts stemming from that experience. 🧠

Aims of CPT:

🎯Alleviate PTSD Symptoms: PTSD can manifest in various ways - from distressing memories and avoiding reminders of the trauma, to feeling constantly on edge or distant from loved ones. Together we can lessen these symptoms across the board.🌈Overcoming "Stuck Points": Sometimes, after trauma, we might hold onto rigid beliefs that hinder healing. CPT assists in identifying these beliefs and offers strategies to challenge them, making the healing process smoother. 🌈

Journey through CPT:

🛤️Education & Initial Sharing: It begins with understanding PTSD and sharing a brief account of the traumatic event.
🤿Processing: Delve deeper into the trauma, pinpointing "stuck points" and detailing the traumatic event. This step might be challenging, but it's instrumental in healing.
❓Questioning & Challenging: Now, equipped with insight, the focus shifts to disputing any unhelpful thought patterns.
🧰Exploring Belief Areas Affected by Trauma: Trauma can influence several aspects of life - trust, self-esteem, or intimacy, to name a few. This phase revolves around understanding and addressing these areas.

Benefits of CPT:
🌟Overcome feelings of being "stuck"
- Express and understand traumatic experiences
- Learn tools to counter unproductive thoughts
- Apply these tools to various life contexts

📝Research affirms the efficacy of CPT for various PTSD forms. However, there are multiple therapies available for trauma, such as CBT, EMDR, DBT, Exposure therapy, NET, somatic therapy, group therapy, pharmacotherapy, and more.

If trauma is affecting your mental well-being, please reach out:

🙏 This time of year is bittersweet for me. It is the celebration of life of my daughter, who is turning 13 next week. But it is also a time when I mourn the loss of her twin that we lost in pregnancy. October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month.

🌈 The term "rainbow baby" holds special meaning for many—it's a child born after a difficult period of infertility, miscarriage, or loss. This serves as a symbol of hope and recovery, much like a rainbow after a storm. 🌦️

It's essential to recognize that many people face this struggle; in fact, studies indicate that 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage. 📊

While society often expects that the next step is to try for another child, it's important to highlight that a "rainbow" can mean different things to different people. 🌱

After experiencing loss or infertility, well-meaning friends and family will say, "Don't give up." Although the intent is good, this can make it seem like there's only one way to heal or find happiness. 🗝️

Loss can make you feel like you're not in control of anything. But even when it feels like you've lost all control, you still have the power to decide what healing looks like for you. 🌟

If you're grieving, consider using natural remedies like lavender essential oil. It's been found to help reduce anxiety and emotional stress. 🌿

For further guidance, the "Miscarriage Map Workbook" by Sunita Osborn offers a helpful way to navigate the complex emotions surrounding pregnancy loss. 📚

Your journey toward finding your own unique "rainbow" is a personal one, and that's perfectly okay. 🌈💕

No matter what your experience, I see you and I am here for you. Let's take time to remember and support each other during Baby Loss Awareness Week next week (9–15 October 2023). Reach out to a friend that comes to mind—and don’t be afraid to ask how she is doing.

🌟 Why Choose a Physician Assistant with a Rich Background in Women’s Health? 🌟

Ever wondered what it's like to have your family’s primary care provider (p*p) be a Physician Assistant (pa) who was a midwife assistant, doula, childbirth educator, and lactation consultant for many years before medical school ?

1️⃣ Compassionate Care: I don't just have a stethoscope, I've got a big heart too! ❤️ From the moment we meet, you're not just a chart; you're a human being deserving of compassion and empathy. And yes, I'm the type of PA who actually listens! Your healthcare decisions are in your hands. Visits are scheduled at your convenience, and are rarely less than hour long so all your questions are answered.

2️⃣ For All Ages: Whether you're 8 months or 80 years old, I've got you covered. Or maybe you're expecting a mini-you? 👶 I'm your one-stop-shop for the whole family. That’s why I offer home visits 🏡. I know how hard it is, as a family of 6, to get us all to the clinic across town.

3️⃣ Holistic Approach: Why treat just the symptoms when you can treat the whole you? Mind, body, and yes, even soul. 🌿 Think of it as "all-inclusive," just like that vacation you wish you were on right now.

4️⃣ Faith-Based Perspective: 🙏 For those who hold faith as an integral part of their lives, I offer an approach that not only addresses physical needs but also aligns with your spiritual beliefs. This can be particularly comforting and empowering for many of my patients.

5️⃣ Expertise in Lactation and Childbirth: 🤰I bring a unique set of skills to prenatal, postnatal, and infant care. These skills can offer invaluable insights and proven techniques to support new mothers and their babies.

Choosing the right healthcare provider is a significant decision, and I’m honored to be considered for your care. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to know more about what I can offer! 🤱

P.S. Trust me, after years in birth work, there's really nothing you can throw my way that will make me blink. I've seen it all—yes, even that thing you're too embarrassed to mention 💩. If I can handle the miracle of birth, I can certainly handle your hangnail. 😂✌️

Hey! 👋 Ever feel like you're struggling with focus or constantly on the go?

🤔 You might be wondering if it's ADHD. Though often diagnosed in kids, sometimes it's not noticed until we're adults!

👶Childhood vs Adult ADHD: It's the same condition, but looks different. In kiddos, think hyperactivity and trouble focusing.

For us adults? More like forgetfulness and procrastination. 📆

💡What Causes It?: It's likely a mix of genes and environment. Not likely because you ate too much sugar or watched too much TV as a kid, although diet, exercise, and lifestyle play a big role. 🍭📺

👫Boys & Girls: ADHD is often spotted in boys but can be missed in girls because symptoms appear differently, which means women have often been undiagnosed for many years.

📋Types of Adult ADHD:
🤦‍♀️ Inattentive
🤸‍♂️ Hyperactive-Impulsive
⚖️ Combined: A mix of both

🌸ADHD Signs + Symptoms in Women:
🔍 Inattention: Can’t focus?
⏰Lose track of time?
🌀 Impulsivity: Acting without thinking? 🤔
😢 Emotions: Mood swings or high stress? 💔
🤝 Social Life: Feel misunderstood?
👭 Awkward in social settings?
⌛ Time: Always late?
🤹 Multitasking: Overwhelmed by too many tasks?
📅 Forgetfulness: Missing deadlines or losing things?
🌧️ Internal Struggles: Feel inadequate or ashamed?

👩‍⚕️Diagnosis: If you're nodding your head like "that's me!", it's time to chat with a healthcare provider. As a PA, I will ask questions, maybe do some tests, and rule out other conditions. 📝

🌱Holistic Treatments:
Beyond traditional meds and therapy, some find relief through complementary options like neurofeedback, acupuncture, or omega-3 supplements.
🍃Herbal Remedies: Some herbal treatments like Ginkgo biloba and Panax ginseng have been studied for their potential effects on ADHD symptoms.
🗣️Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Although not strictly a ‘holistic’ approach, CBT is a non-pharmacological intervention that has been adapted for adults with ADHD, focusing on time management and organizational skills.
🛌Sleep Hygiene: Adequate sleep is crucial for cognitive functioning. Poor sleep patterns can exacerbate ADHD symptoms, and improved sleep hygiene can have a beneficial effect.
🫁Biofeedback and Relaxation Techniques: Methods like deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and guided imagery can sometimes help in reducing stress, which can exacerbate ADHD symptoms.

1️⃣ I always start here first & when meds are necessary I provide options through discussion of risks vs benefits, informed consent, & never pressure anything. The choice is in your hands.

🏠Tips for Managing Adult ADHD:
⏲️ Work: Use to-do lists, timers, and try to minimize distractions.
💪 Home: Stay organized, ask for help, and exercise to improve focus and relieve stress.

📲 If you're curious, send me a text & I’ll schedule a free 10-15 min consultation so you can ask all the questions & I’ll share more about me: (832) 843-8246.

Hey! 🌟 Your friendly neighborhood PA here, and I've got your "sprain-no-pain" prescription ready! 📜 Let's dive into some remedies for sprains that have stood the test of time—just like your grandma's secret casserole recipe. 🤣

🌟RICE Method - The OG
REST*: Time to kick back and relax, folks! Your sprain isn't going to get better with you acting like a Marvel hero. 🦸‍♂️

❄️ ICE: This is your chill pill. Literally! Ice that sprain for 10 to 20 minutes, and then repeat every few hours.

🤗COMPRESSION: : Wrap it up, but keep it comfy. Think of a snug hug, not a wrestling hold!

🌙ELEVATE: Keep that foot sky-high, especially during your Netflix marathons.

🌞 Turmeric, the Golden Spice
Just mix 2 tablespoons of turmeric with warm water and a tablespoon of lime juice. Coat the sprain, wrap it up, and keep it on for 10-12 hours. Replay and enjoy! 🔄

🛁 Epsom Salt Bath - The Ultimate Chill
Turn your bath into a mini spa by adding a cup or two of Epsom salt and soaking for 30 mins. Your sprain will thank you! ✨

🌝Turmeric for Arthritis?
Yep, turmeric is basically your Swiss Army knife for inflammation. It's especially great if arthritis is bugging you. 👑 (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ptr.4639)

😰Still in pain? Consider ArthroSoothe™ Cream By Designs for Health. I use this personally, and appreciate that it is is a soothing topical lotion that utilizes ingredients such as eucalyptus, peppermint, and tea tree oils, along with methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid (HA), and a blend of herbal extracts. This product provides a warming effect followed by a surface-cooling sensation to help support occasional joint and muscle discomfort.

Today, I'm diving into the world of diabetes, which let's be real, has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons! According to the CDC, diabetes affects 30 million Americans, while 54 million more are in the 'waiting room' of prediabetes. 😬

If you've been looking for an alternative way to manage diabetes or more naturally, and/or along with your current medications for more optimal care, guess what? You're in luck! 🍀

Take a peek at this supplement protocol here: [Diabetes and Endocrine Support Protocol](https://us.fullscript.com/protocols/nicolepa-diabetes-endocrine-support)

🌟 The Star-studded Lineup:

1. Nutra Support Diabetes: Imagine a supplement that packs the punch of 13 vitamins, nine minerals, and seven other essential nutrients.🥦 A one-stop-shop for your vitamin B and D needs. A study published in the journal of "Diabetes Care" suggests that deficiencies in B and D vitamins can be particularly impactful on metabolic and cardiovascular health in diabetics.

2. Diabenil: This is like the Avengers squad for your blood sugar levels! 🦸‍♀️🦸‍♂️ Gymnema sylvestre has been used in India longer than yoga poses! It's backed by science for helping maintain your blood sugar. 🧘‍♀️ Momordica charantia, also known as bitter melon, is not just bitter by name but also a sweetheart in helping your liver behave! 🍈 Research published in the journal "Phytomedicine" indicates that Gymnema sylvestre has properties that could help support already normal blood sugar levels. Meanwhile, a study in the "Journal of Ethnopharmacology" suggests that bitter melon could enhance glucose utilization. Bilberry and quercetin are included for their beneficial effects on ocular and vascular health, backed by scientific findings published in the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry."

3. Female Endocrine Axis Drops: Calling all my ladies dealing with PMS or menopause! 📣While not directly related to diabetes, hormonal imbalances can have tangential effects on blood sugar regulation. This is your go-to for those "not-so-awesome" symptoms like cramps, mood swings, and those dreaded hot flashes. 🔥🌡️

4. Myo-Inositol Plus: This is like a spa day but for your ovaries and metabolism! 🧖‍♀️ Studies show it's super helpful for supporting ovarian, metabolic, and endocrine function in women, as per a study in the "European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences."! 👯‍♀️
