The Nakisbendi Women's Center would like to thank the guests and fellow participants who made the Best of the Main Line Party 2008 such a wonderful success! As a sponsor we enjoyed the opportunity to reach out to the community and provide support for charities that are close to our hearts. We were also excited to have our own holistic health counselor, Gretchen LaLonde be recognized by Main Line Today as Best of the Main Line 2008.
The Nakisbendi Women's Center consists of psychotherapists, acupuncturists, holistic health counselors and nurses who work directly with Dr. Kara M. Nakisbendi, a board-certified gynecologist and certified nutrition specialist. Our practitioners work together utilizing a functional medicine approach which shifts from the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Dr. Nakisbendi provides comprehensive gynecological care throughout a woman's life cycle from adolescence to menopause. In addition to routine gynecology, she specializes in menopausal changes, adolescent gynecology, sexual dysfunction, recurrent vaginitis, and vulvar pain disorders. As a certified SottoPelle(R) Bio-equivalent Hormone Therapy Physician, she offers testosterone and or estradiol subcutaneous pellets in individually tailored dosages as an option for hormonal imbalances. Pellets release a steady, low dose of natural hormones into the bloodstream to help alleviate symptoms such as menstrual migraines, night sweats and low libido.
Our practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. We offer women a range of options so they can choose their optimal path.
