Gynecology and Women’s Health

January 30, 2015 by DR. MYLAINE RIOBE

The Gynecology check-up is a critical part of health maintenance for women. Gynecology visits are often termed preventive visits. Many of my patients ask me if these are preventive visits or not?

My answer is “That depends on what you call prevention”. The gynecology check-up is an examination that looks for diseases in their early stages. By definition, prevention is the avoidance or prevention of a disease. So by definition, the gynecology examination is not preventive in nature. It does, however, prevent death from diseases. For example, the mammogram is a radiological study of the breasts that seeks out masses or other radiological signs of breast cancer. A mammogram can detect breast cancer in its early stages for women who follow the recommended screening. So a mammogram can detect cancer early so it can be successfully treated to prevent death from breast cancer.
The pap smear is a better example of a preventive test. The pap smear is designed to detect precancerous cells on the cervix called dysplastic cells. This condition is easily treated in order to prevent its progression to cervical cancer.

My patients often ask me what more they can do to prevent diseases. The answer is to get an “Integrative Check-Up”. An integrative check up can detect abnormal cellular or body function before it becomes a disease. It’s a great tool to compliment your gynecology check-up or your regular medical check-up. At the Riobe Institute of Integrative Medicine, I combine an Energy based system of medicine in my evaluation and combine this with cutting-edge cellular based testing to provide valuable and powerful information to feel great, prevent diseases and also to help existing diseases improve.

For example, a breast thermogram is an infrared image of the breasts that can detect inflammation and abnormalities in the breasts before they become cancerous masses detected by mammograms. Once these abnormalities are detected on the thermogram.

If you’re looking for true prevention of diseases and to feel great now, schedule an Integrative Check-up today or call (772) 266-4258 for an appointment!

The Ending of an Epidemic

  • “When I came to Dr. Riobe, I was experiencing severe hot flashes which interfered with my sleeping.  I felt lethargic and was overweight.  Through her patience and medical tests, we have found the problems and solutions.  Throughout the year, we have leveled my hormones, treated the thyroid; my fatigue and hot flashes are no longer an issue.  My constant battle with weight loss is finally showing success!  Dr. Riobe’s supplements are making my life so much more enjoyable!”

    Linda Gibson, Florida,
  • “Before I went to Dr Riobe, I felt an incredible amount of stress, was unable to sleep at night, often waking at 3:00 am and not being able to return to sleep.  I am now able to sleep through the night, waking up refreshed with energy and ready to face my problems, tasks, workload, etc.   My libido has returned and I do not have hot flashes or panic attacks.  Before seeing Dr. Riobe, I was extremely tired, irritable and my self image did suffer.  I now have energy, feel more pleasant and to not feel overwhelmed with life’s problems.”

    Mary S. Casteel, Florida,
  • “The quality of my life has improved due to overall improvement in my energy level.  Higher energy levels remove irritability from ruining your interaction with others… especially my husband.  He’s really glad I found Dr. Riobe.  I used to wake up as tired as I was when I went to sleep.  Now I awake refreshed and able to go through my day with no fatigue which also allows for a better night’s rest since I don’t need coffee to get me through the day.”

    Christina Mitchell, Florida,
  • “Besides the increased energy, libido, weight loss, I am sleeping better and have improved skin health.  Dr. Riobe’s suggestions and treatment have allowed me to live a happier life spiritually and physically.  Since taking the Bio-identical treatment, the night sweats have stopped.  I rest 7-8 hours per night, compared to my previous 4-5 hours.  Once I started the supplements Dr. Riobe recommended, the cortisol levels have reduced and weight loss started immediately.  Losing a few pounds gave me a personal boost which caused the chain reaction to want to continue.”

    Linnea Beard, Florida,
  • “I feel so much better. I have energy and relief from the constant ache in my body. My Mood has drastically improved and I’m sleeping again.”
