True well-being encompasses the 12 pillars of wellbeing developed by Dr. Trindade.

Prevention is cornerstone to our practice. Your comprehensive prevention program with Dr. Trindade includes:

  1.  Cutting edge health risk assessment based on personal history, family history and genomics

"Being under the care of Dr Trindade has been the best decision I have made in my medical treatment. I had been struggling with peri menopausal symptoms for years when I found Dr Trindade. She worked so patiently and efficiently with me and immediately had a treatment plan to deal with my symptoms. Dr Trindade is also up to date on the most current medical research and is continuously applying her knowledge into your treatment plan. Dr Trindade has managed to bring balance back to my body and my life, and I cannot imagine where I would be had I not found her! "

"I started seeing Dr. Filomena Trindade in 2004. She had me do blood work and other tests so she could accurately assess my hormone levels. She worked with me on hormone balance. She also had me do a food elimination diet to determine which foods I had sensitivities to.

In the 12 years I have been a patient of Dr. Trindade's, she has helped me tremendously. She is always very kind and is a great listener. I have recommended her to my daughters and many friends. They have all been very pleased with the medical care and encouragement she has provided them."

"I spent many years feeling extremely anxious for no reason, and felt like I had no energy, and had gained a lot of weight. I went to see many practitioners, that wanted to prescribe anxiety medication and antidepressants. I was young, and didn't know any other options, so I tried everything that was given to me. The pharmaceutical drugs made me feel sedated, and I gained a lot of weight. I continued to search for help knowing that there was a biological reason for my symptoms that needed to be addressed. Dr. Trindade knows how to read thyroid tests differently then most Doctors. She found a thyroid problem, B12 deficiency, Vitamin D deficiency, and adrenal fatigue. Very quickly after my first visit, and finishing all the testing did I start to feel good again. I was amazed! I couldn't believe how much better I felt even with the first pill of natural thyroid. Following her nutritional guidance was often challenging, but worth it!

To be successful to regain your health with Dr. Trindade, you have to be committed, and willing to change your diet, take nutritional supplements, and follow her lead. It won't always be easy, but it will certainly be worth it! You will regain your health and vitality. I wish all Doctors were trained in Functional Medicine, and had her intelligence and compassion."
