Bio-identical Progesterone for Women and Men

August 19, 2014

AdviceI am delivering a live CME seminar online on Bio-identical Progesterone tomorrow at 7PM Pacific time.  Thank you to the physicians and pharmacists who attended the last session (there were over 500 of you!) and left such positive feedback, and I look forward to answering all of your GREAT questions tomorrow! You can register by clicking here.

For those of you who are interested in more intensive training I recommend the BHRT Symposium. I have attended a lot of BHRT conferences over the years and look to this symposium for the most advanced training I have found so far.  There is a special $200 off promotion right now if you enter FREECME when registering at bhrtsymposium.com.

Hormone Health in the Childbearing Years-Article By Dr. Gina Published in LA Parent

April 30, 2014

happy_babyFor National Infertility Week this blog seems most appropriate. We have a great fertility program at HealthBridge Medical Center that helps couples to conceive naturally (when IVF fails or is just not an option for the couple), with the use of bio-identical hormones, detoxification and diet. It is truly amazing what can happen when you give the body what it needs. It heals itself…and if it was possible and meant to be, creates an optimal environment for a child to be born into. The result is a healthier mom, dad and baby.
In health,

Thyroid and Infertility

January 6, 2014

happy_babyMillions of people worldwide suffer with infertility and recurrent miscarriage and in thousands of unexplained cases, hypothyroidism may be the underlying cause. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has warned that 1 in 10 Americans suffer from thyroid disease. Despite this staggering statistic, half of patients remain undiagnosed. Many of these people will be in their childbearing years.  Click here to read more about a news release on this topic.

What most doctors do not know is that the timing of when you test for and treat thyroid in pregnancy is crucial in preventing miscarriage.  The type of thyroid treatment is also essential to a healthy outcome.

I will be giving a talk in our medical practice on Wed January 29th at 6:30PM on integrative medical options for  fertility, and how to test for, and treat, thyroid imabalances throughout pregnancy.

In health,

Dr. Gina

Concierge Integrative Medical Services

November 4, 2012

Just a quick post to share my excitement as our medical practice expands to offer to our patients the only medical service of its kind in southern California.

As you know, I am passionate about integrative medicine, and after 15 years treating patients and teaching physicians how to practice this medicine, I am still in awe of the results that come with helping the body to heal itself.  There are natural options available for major health challenges, like depression, infertility, ADHD, hormone imbalance, memory loss, chronic pain, and rheumatoid arthritis.

I have been practicing concierge medicine with our high profile patients and am now offering this service to more people.

As a concierge patient you have the option for home visits, a private line to the doctor, help with shopping for the best foods for your body, and a more personal and direct relationship, the way medicine used to be practiced, when your doctor was also a family friend.

Read about our patients’ experiences to learn firsthand from others who have gotten results with the help of this medicine.

You can call our offices at 310-734-0950 (Beverly Hills) or 949-715-9321 (Newport Beach) for more info.

Birth Control for Men

July 24, 2012

Image

Now this makes sense!  A male contraceptive procedure that is 100 percent effective and reversible, and takes about 15 minutes to complete. Learn more by clicking here. How many women’s lives would be saved if they no longer had to routinely introduce synthetic hormones into their body? Hormonal contraception in women, unfortunately,  is one of the most popular (and convenient) contraceptive strategies available right now. And more unfortunate is the long term damage it can cause to a woman’s health. Conditions including blood clots, stroke, cancer and other chronic diseases with an inflammatory component are well documented potential consequences that  women face when taking oral contraceptives.

Let’s hope that better options present themselves and become available here in the US as soon as possible.

In health,

-Dr. Gina
