About Dr. Doni
Donielle Wilson, ND, CPM, CNS
Dr. Doni Wilson is a health visionary, researcher, bestselling author, and international speaker.
Through her research and clinical experience, she developed her Stress Recovery Protocol, which takes stress management to the next level by utilizing epigenetics to individualize the optimization of cortisol, adrenaline and neurotransmitters.
Dr. Doni (as she is called by her patients) has a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University (2000), where she also completed her residency. She is also a certified professional midwife, a certified nutrition specialist, and has degrees in both nutrition and science.
For more than 22 years, Dr. Doni has helped thousands of patients overcome health challenges that are considered irreversible. After growing up in a pharmacy (her father is a pharmacist), she became passionate about preventing the need for medications and helping those who are not being helped by standard medical approaches.
She cured herself from chronic, debilitating migraines, and in the process discovered her patent pending protocol.
An innovator in the field of functional medicine and psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology, Dr. Doni has been developing protocols, publishing her insights, and training practitioners in the U.S and Canada for over two decades.
Dr. Doni has developed highly specialized protocols for adrenal maladaptation syndrome, which is an established condition not addressed by conventional medicine; amino acid therapy to optimize neurotransmitter levels, which eliminates the need for psychotropic medications; for the optimization of methylation for those with MTHFR gene variations, including a prenatal protocol which decreases the risk of miscarriage; and a protocol to reverse cervical dysplasia and eliminate HPV virus, having the potential to prevent cervical/vaginal cancer for millions of women.
Dr. Doni is licensed as a Naturopathic (Medical) Doctor in Arizona, California, Washington state and Connecticut.
How Migraines Inspired My Protocol
I’ll never forget the night it happened again.
The light from the movie screen felt like an assault on my eyes. I could feel my throat welling-up and the insides of my cheeks began to saturate with saliva. I jumped out of my seat, left my boyfriend without a word, and sprung through the theater’s swivel doors.
The wave of nausea had fully washed over me as I stumbled toward the bathroom. I pleaded to myself, “oh no, please, not again.”
I knew exactly what was coming next: A migraine. Again.
I felt a rush of pain crawling up the back of my spine. The familiar throbbing sensation deepened right where my head and neck joined and I could feel it settling in. Not only would this pain last for hours on end, the nausea would progress to the point of me violently vomiting every 15-minutes for the next 24-hours, and it would take days for me to recover.
I was 21 years old when this first happened, but it was far from the last time. In fact, this happened numerous times each year, and some years it happened every 2 weeks, for the next twenty four years.
No matter where I turned, no doctor, pill, or specialist could solve my seemingly unrelenting pain. I was left feeling defeated, exhausted, and overwhelmed.
Even after graduating from naturopathic medical school, I was still getting migraines, but I was ashamed to tell anyone. It was through years of research and implementing what I discovered on myself, including amino acid therapy to balance my neurotransmitters, identifying gluten sensitivity and leaky gut and how to recover from them, as well as adrenal distress and MTHFR, that I was able to decrease the frequency of the migraines.
Still it wasn’t until I diagnosed myself with hypermobility and toxicity from flame retardants, and addressed those issues successfully, while also experiencing an emotional-spiritual transformation that brought me out of hiding, that I completely brought the migraines to a stop.
In the process of solving my migraines, I developed my Stress Recovery Protocol which identifies how stress uniquely affects each individual and then uses epigenetics to reoptimize health. It’s about finding out how stress has specifically affected you and your body. We need to know what has become imbalanced due to stress exposure, and then rebalance it, starting with cortisol and adrenaline levels. This is what I refer to as your Stress Type™.
Now I help patients reverse challenging health conditions including fatigue, anxiety, depression, autoimmunity, fertility and recurrent miscarriages, MTHFR, insomnia, as well as HPV and abnormal pap smears.
I help women, men and children to understand their bodies and what they can do to feel their best, and how to be healthy while stressed. What I learned from migraines is that it is not possible to eliminate all stress or to be stress-free. What we need to be aiming for is RESILIENCY to stress by giving ourselves the support we need to recover from the stresses of being human. This is the foundation of my SelfC.A.R.E.™ Method – Clean eating, Adequate sleep, Recovery activities, and Exercise.
If you’ve been told there’s nothing you can do, “it can’t be reversed,” that what you’re dealing with is “normal,” or you’re just “getting old,” or “stressed….” you’re not alone, and there is a way a figure out what is underlying your health issues, and solve it.
The foundation of my practice is Epigenetics and Stress Mastery. Research now shows us that our genetics have much less to do with our health than our stress exposure. And what I add to that is our health and longevity has everything to do with our willingness and success recovering from stress, down to the level of our cellular biochemistry and genetic expression.
It is well-established that over 90% of health conditions are caused by stress. At the same time, nature provides air, light/darkness, water, nutrients, plants/herbs, food, ions, colors, and more, giving us what we need to counterbalance stress. We just need to know how to use these resources, and that is what I have researched and learned to implement while acknowledging unique individual needs.
I am a firm believer that there’s always something you can do to support your body and help it function more optimally. Both myself and my patients are a living testament of that.
I help patients achieve newfound health and to master their stress every day, and I’d love to help you do the same.
