Why Gentle Integrative Care?
All too often, women search everywhere to find out the answers to overwhelming fatigue, body aches, joint pain, and mood changes. They want to find out what’s wrong and to regain their health so that they can look after their loved ones. They may have a meaningul career that they want to maintain. And so many times they are dismissed with a pill.
After more than 18 years of seeing this happen with her patients, Lisa Gold, FNP wanted to open a health care practice that not only helped women improve their immune system health but also helped nourish their body, mind and spirit to improve their overall wellness for the rest of their lives.
What Makes Us Different Than Other Health Care Practices?
The Gentle Integrative Care approach was founded with the idea of empowering women to take charge of their health. We still prioritize that idea today.
