Gynecology and Women’s Health

January 30, 2015 by DR. MYLAINE RIOBE
Riobe Institute of Integrative Medicine Gynecology and Women’s Health

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!

  • "My mother in law in really big into nutrition and health so she also recommended that I reach out to an integrative doctor plus I've always been a huge fan of natural health/holistic medicine.  I had tingling in my feet, legs and hands.  After going to multiple doctors, they couldn’t tell me why I was having this pain and I’ve always been active, so it didn’t make sense.  I’m glad Barbara referred me to Dr. Riobe because she ran tests and found out I was deficient in vitamins and had poor absorption.” “Treatment is definitely helping and I’m feeling better!”

  • “My daughter recommended Dr. Riobe...because traditional medicine wasn't working for my chronic migraine headaches.  I was getting 15-20 per month.  It was ruining my life.  I couldn't get out of bed. I couldn't play with my grandson.  I was getting seizures.  Dr. Riobe gave me my life back! I can play with my precious grandson and go to dinner with my husband again.  I lost 30 pounds.  I'm so excited that I get to live my life again thanks to Dr. Riobe.”
