Immuno-rejuvenation

December 19, 2022

It was an honor to have dinner with Dr. Jeffrey Bland, founder of Functional Medicine, while at The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) Longevity Conference. He introduced a concept that brings real hope to people and the planet during these times.

It is called immuno-rejuvenation and it is the counterpart to immuno-senescence.

This quote from his company’s website Big Bold Health simplifies the message that we can all appreciate and share with patients, colleagues, friends and family:

“You were born for resilience, with an immune system designed to get you there.”

Practicing medicine and particularly integrative medicine with this concept in mind and heart shifts the approach to one more focused on encouraging resilience and truly working with the body and its innate intelligence, to promote long term healing.

Dr. Gina

There is a lot of talk these days about the benefits of therapeutic peptides. Here is a short video that helps explain what they are and how they may benefit you. I am seeing great results in my practice and have incorporated this therapy into many of our treatment plans.

Here’s to experiencing the very best version of yourself,

Inflammation Causes Changes in your Ability to Think Clearly

February 13, 2020

An interesting article was published this week in Psychology Today that talks about how inflammation in the body not only causes depression but also alters our mood and even decision making.

About 15 years ago I began to study this link. I even purchased the domain address inflamedbrain.com because I felt that one day this information would become mainstream.

And here we are!

The approach I take to treating patients often involves recommendations that lower inflammation in the body.

The fields of psychology and even sociology will likely evolve to incorporate this new information about how to help people lead more focused and clear lives.

Inflammation and Mental Illness

January 30, 2020

GirlswithPlanetA new study was published that highlights the link between inflammation in the body and mental illness. This is an area that I have been focusing on clinically and in training to physicians and pharmacists for the past twelve years, referring to the condition as “Sickness Syndrome.” There is a very clear link between inflammation in the body and mental illness. Addressing inflammation with a clear plan alleviates many of the symptoms associated with it including depression, anxiety and OCD. For long lasting results, we have to treat the cause of these symptoms rather then masking them. It doesn’t mean psychiatric medications are not helpful, it means we need to broaden the treatment to address one of the underlying causes-inflammation.  I have been researching and working with several forms of glutathione in clinical practice as a simple and effective treatment for “neuroinflammation.” This is an exciting time in medicine, with wonderful discoveries and connections being made that will help children and adults to experience more freedom and to think more clearly.

Too Much Exposure: Everyday Chemicals that Can Harm Kids

September 18, 2019

Here is a great article from Harvard Medical School’s health blog that clearly lists some of the main chemicals that we want our kids to steer clear of, and why. At our office we test children for imbalances that are sometimes caused by too much exposure to these chemicals, that can lead to avoidable health problems. They are often referred to as “endocrine disrupters” because they cause hormonal imbalances in the body.

It is a quick read and worth a look!

October 27, 2018


My experience with Dr. Gina was 5 star. She had studied the entire 16 page questionnaire I filled out in advance of our first visit, and based on that and her background, already knew much about my physical, emotional, mental and dare I say, spiritual health. I’ve been to many ND’s over the years, the naturopathic principles resonate with me. Dr. Gina was professional, science based, yet what impressed me the most was her intuition and perceptive “read” of my entire being. While several health issues precipitated my visits, what I learned was how deeply our mental, emotional and spiritual health affect the physical-and how empowering that realization was and is.

Truly I can say my experience with Dr. Gina was life changing, and the healing of all of those four has been permanent.

I was also quite impressed with her detecting that my thyroid was “off” although the usual tests did not reveal this. We treated that based on her understanding of other symptoms often overlooked by other doctors (not only MD’s, other ND’s as well). At that time she was also quite active in legislation to legitimize ND’s as primary care physicians, and offered limited office hours.

I felt and feel very fortunate I was able to be seen and treated by her.
