Nicole Jolin: Thank you for inviting me. I'm so excited about this opportunity.

doTERRA: Before we start, can you just tell us a little bit about yourself?

Nicole Jolin: Yes, I'm a pharmacist. I've been a pharmacist for over 26 years now, and I work predominantly hospital pharmacist versus retail. It's a little bit different. And I am also a retired ballerina. I danced for 28 years, and I taught ballet for 30 years.

I am also a chronic pain management educator, so I teach people natural solutions for their own pain journey to help support them in other ways. So I became very impassioned in myself and my own experience going through the health care system and just realized there's a real lack of education from the doctor all the way down to the patient. And so this is where I come in, is I'm trying to teach people other modalities to help support them.

doTERRA: Absolutely. Well, we are so excited to talk to you about this topic. And my first question for you is what are some of the lifestyle changes that I can make to help with that physical discomfort?

Nicole Jolin: There are three key things you can do. First of all, you want to make sure your musculoskeletal system is in alignment and functioning properly. Chronic misalignments can lead to chronic inflammation and degeneration over time. One of the keys to accomplishing this is releasing the fascia, which is your connective tissue system.

The second thing is to support your body from the inside out with proper nutrition and supplements that are actually absorbed.

Third thing is to change how you perceive pain. Understanding the biochemical pathways inside the brain and how negative emotions, memories, and beliefs can contribute to physical discomfort is fundamental in breaking the cycle of physical discomfort.

doTERRA: Absolutely. And then how can I use these lifestyle changes in the moment to help address that physical discomfort?

Nicole Jolin: Consistency. Consistency. Consistency. Everyone's journey is different and showing up every day to find the path that is best for you is imperative. I like to take a root cause approach and try to identify why you have physical discomfort to begin with. Then develop a health and wellness plan that will serve you.

There is a time and place for modern day medicine and a time and place for alternative care. Sometimes you need both. I teach people how to incorporate lifestyle changes into their life from the comfort of their home, with a small investment in tools geared towards relief. All you may need is a soft foam roller and 10 minutes a day to achieve success.

doTERRA: That is incredible. And like you said, I think it's so important to remember that your approach should be personalized to you, right? You can't just do what other people are doing and expect that it's going to work for your situation.

Nicole Jolin: Exactly, yes.

doTERRA: Now, Nicole, what kind of products does doTERRA offer to help with that physical discomfort?

Nicole Jolin: doTERRA has many products that I love. Personally, I use a whole array. So some of my favorites are the Lifelong Vitality Pack, and these supplements are formulated to be absorbed, which is really important. And add this to your balanced diet to maximize your nutritional support. The Lifelong Vitality Pack gives you the right amounts of multiple vitamins, minerals, omega-3s and 6s, and antioxidants support to give your body the boost it needs on a cellular level.

I also love the Turmeric Dual Chamber Capsules, and doTERRA was brilliant in figuring out how to get all the turmerones and curcuminoids all into one product without having to add Black Pepper to it for proper absorption. I use this product daily for a healthy inflammatory response.

I also love the Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex, and these polyphenols are powerful for supporting your body on a cellular level and for a healthy, inflammatory response.

I also love the Copaiba Softgel capsules to support healthy, inflammatory and nervous system responses.

And my favorite oils that I use daily are Frankincense, Copaiba, Turmeric, Deep Blue, Lavender, and Peppermint to name a few. And I use them every day. I use these oils based on their chemistry for a healthy, inflammatory response. I find them to be very soothing when applied topically with some carrier oil.

doTERRA: I love all of those recommendations, and I think the supplements are some of my favorites because they're such an easy and convenient way to really maximize those benefits of the oils and different, you know, vitamins and minerals that you're ingesting.

Nicole Jolin: Oh, I totally agree. And it just—the thing about the vitamin world that people don't really understand is a lot of products—like if you just walk into a grocery store and picked up a vitamin off the shelf, they're not formulated in the best way for actual, proper absorption.

And doTERRA is really smart about figuring out how to get you the maximum in their supplements to help support your body. Maximum absorption, so you're actually getting the benefit from the product.

doTERRA: Yes, absolutely. Now, Nicole, my last question for you is, how do you take these products? Because you had a big list there. How do you take them and work them into your daily routines?

Nicole Jolin: Well, I'm a very habitual person. That's part of the consistency. You just—you make healthy habits. And I have a routine that I use these products twice a day, every day. It’s just part of my normal waking up in the morning routine, getting ready for work and my normal bedtime routine.

I also incorporate them into physical activity when I need a little bit more support or when working on my physical therapies for my physical discomfort. And doTERRA’s products just give me that added boost and that calming, calming effect when I need it.

doTERRA: I love that. And like you said, once you've got it into that habituation, then it's easy and just second nature almost.

Nicole Jolin: Yes. It's just—it's an automatic thing. And my doTERRA products are the first thing that I reach for. If I'm having any concerns or needing additional support in any way, that's just the first thing that I go to and grab for that.

doTERRA: I love that. And there's so many products that how could you not find one that you love and that's going to work for you?

Nicole Jolin: Exactly.

doTERRA: Nicole, it has been fantastic to talk to you today to learn a little bit more about what I can do to help with my physical discomfort and make sure that I'm living my life the best I can.

Nicole Jolin: That's great! Keep it up.
