About Melinda Silva, M.D.
Feel Sexier, Look Younger, Get Leaner and Live Stronger
I am Dr. Melinda Silva and my goal is to help you reach your optimal health through hormone balance and to help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. I have over 18 years of clinical experience and as a Board Certified Physician in Family Medicine, I have taken care of patients of all ages and in all stages of life.
In an effort to help myself get my life back, I learned the proper use of bioidentical hormones. The result was I could feel sexier, look younger, get leaner and live stronger — and so can you!
You don’t have to feel lousy as you are approaching midlife. Many people suffer from symptoms of hormonal changes because they don’t know there is an alternative. When I started to suffer perimenopause symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, headache, insomnia, low libido, irritability and mood changes I sought help from my doctor. I was prescribed birth control pills and Prozac and decided I needed to find an alternative treatment.
After bioidentical hormone therapy, I felt like myself again. My kids were happy to have their loving mother back and my husband was ecstatic to have his romantic wife back. Being a scientist, I was initially hesitant about bioidentical hormones because I never learned about it in my California medical school. I decided to open up my own clinic to help decrease the pain and suffering associated with menopause and andropause (male version of menopause – a real syndrome also known as “midlife crisis”).
I pursued and completed a Fellowship in Functional and Integrative Medicine, known as “AntiAging Medicine” focusing on early detection, prevention and treatment of age related dysfunctions and diseases. In my Fellowship, I learned about the evidence based studies that showed bioidentical hormone therapy is a safe and effective alternative to the synthetic hormone treatments which can cause breast cancer.
My mission is to offer you affordable, personalized medicine with the goal of increasing the quality of your life through hormone balancing and weight loss. I keep up to date with the latest trends in Integrative Medicine like using stem cell therapies. I am currently a Medical Contributor for Fox 5 News and on the Scientific Advisory Board for Youngevity. I have lectured on a national level teaching other physicians. I have received many community and professional accolades and one of my proudest is receiving an esteemed Compassionate Physician Award selected by my patients.
I am honored to partner with you in helping you achieve your best health and live your best life!
Congratulations on taking charge of your health, we look forward to meeting you!
