Do you know that 1 in 2 people suffer silently for years with reversible hormone imbalances, digestive disorders, stealth infections, and cognitive issues like brain fog and memory loss?
Do you also know that many people with these chronic health issues are never properly tested by their primary care doctors?
Oftentimes they hear “everything is fine” or “it’s just a sign of getting older,” when they know they don’t feel fine and feel like they aren’t being heard?
Left unchecked, all these issues can lead to more complicated health problems such as autoimmune disease, chronic pain, inflammation and heart disease, and obesity.
Dr. Francine Woods graduated from Boston University with a doctorate of Internal Medicine. She completed her undergraduate studies at the Wheaton College, receiving a B.S in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences. During school, she studied advanced training in internal medicine and botanical medicine.
Born in Newton, Massachusetts, Dr. Francine Woods attended rotations at Boston Medical Center, the Roxbury Health Clinic, and primary care rotations through the Massachusetts Center for Natural Health. Her inspiration continued during work with Doctors Without Borders, an NGO that brings free medical health care to under-served communities in South Africa.
After returning to America, she spent ten years as a full-time emergency physician before becoming Medical Director of the Brookline Stomach Health Center. While there, she became overly aware of the limitations that “conventional” medicine posed. As a response to this, Dr. Francine Woods began studying Ericksonian hypnotherapy and body-oriented psychotherapeutic methods, along with herbs and supplements that are known to improve stomach health.
