Dr. Francine Woods
Dr. 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. 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. Woods began studying Ericksonian hypnotherapy and body-oriented psychotherapeutic methods, along with herbs and supplements that are known to improve stomach health.
The root cause of her philosophy for diagnosing and treating stomach illnesses lies in a comprehensive approach that combines both physical and mental-emotional treatment methods. In addition to utilizing these treatments effectively, she also strives to teach patients that their good stomach health is dependent on:
- A well-functioning autonomic nervous system and a stomach supplemented with proper enzymes
- A healthy stomach that is pain-free, creating a balanced emotional state in the process
- A supportive network of relationships with friends, family, and medical practitioners.
She is proud to bring her decades of medical knowledge to his own clinic, Infinite Wellness. She is equally honored to be joined by such an exciting and experienced team as the one she has recruited to work alongside her.
