NYPD Officer Credits The Gianna Center with Renewed Health, Stronger Resistance

Anne P. of Wantagh is a detective with the NYPD. She’d heard about The Gianna Center of Long Island for Women's Health & Fertility from a friend who’d turned to Gianna for treatment of post-partum depression. Her friend had so many good things to say about her care that Anne decided to give Gianna a try for her own infertility.

“The first thing I noticed is the doctors really listen, which makes me feel like I’m in control of the pathway,” said Anne. “They don’t jump to get you on meds; they first want to make adjustments to your diet and add a few natural supplements. It takes time, but after a while your system improves, you feel stronger, more energetic, and much less vulnerable to contagion. For example, I haven’t had a cold in over a year. And for someone who spends all their time in NYC, constantly engaging with lots of people, that says a lot.” 

The Gianna Center’s approach is to identify and correct the underlying causes of infertility. There are 70 or so causes, which can overlap and are often triggered by imbalances in diet and sleep. When the foundational issues are improved, so many women report much better overall health and quality of life. For example, hormonal deficiencies contribute to premenstrual syndrome or premenstrual dysphoric disorder. These can cause debilitating anxiety, fatigue, depression and irritability, and yet can be improved with specific supplements and medications.

“I feel strong and much more vibrant,” says Anne. “The holistic, natural approach is definitely the way to go. My hormones have normalized and my cycles are now symptomless. Honestly, I feel like I’m much prepared for contact with COVID-19 as a result.” 

Paul Carpentier, MD, CFCMC, is the medical director for the Gianna Center of Long Island for Women's Health & Fertility. He’s seen the change-over to better health many, many times. “Correcting hormonal dysfunction is life-changing for women - above and beyond increasing the chances of conceiving,” says Dr. Carpentier. “Rather than achieving pregnancy as quickly as possible, women should be helped to conceive as healthily as possible." 

Anne puts it even more simply,” I just feel healthy again.”
