Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Expect at My First Visit?

Dr. Limosnero’s goal is to treat her patients in the most natural, least harmful way possible. Your overall health and wellness is at the forefront of any treatment. Initial visits will include a discussion to pinpoint the specific symptoms you are having. The discussion may involve a review of your medical history, family history, and current lifestyle. It is possible that a physical examination may be performed at this time should it be deemed necessary. The initial visit is a great opportunity to get to know your doctor, as well as ask any questions, or bring up any concerns you may be having. From there, an individualized plan for treatment will be developed to help you to reach your specific health goals in the best way possible.

 

In order to give you the time and attention necessary to cover all questions that need to be addressed, you can expect your visit to be a full hour.

About Dr. Limosnero

Dr. Odette Limosnero believes that integrative medicine is the best path to true health. While most physicians treat only symptoms and disease, she strives to truly understand why the symptoms are occurring in the first place. She aims to treat her patients in the most natural, least harmful way possible, and only if needed resorts to prescription medications and surgery.

Dr. Limosnero struggled personally with skin and digestive issues, weight loss, and infertility. A regular yoga practice is what opened up her eyes to a new way of looking at health and how our physical bodies are connected to our mind and soul. Food was no longer just calories but a source of nourishment and vital energy. This approach to her own health was what helped her the most, and she now lives a healthier lifestyle and has two beautiful, healthy children.

In July 2015, she opened Roots Integrative Gynecology in Carrolton TX, 75010, to help other women benefit from a more holistic approach to women’s wellness and health care—the same type of holistic care that she found so helpful in her own life. She takes the time necessary to uncover and treat the underlying causes of women’s symptoms using methods learned in her fellowship in Integrative Medicine as well as the foundation of traditional medicine.

Dr. Limosnero grew up in San Francisco Bay Area. She went on to obtain her undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of California at Davis. In 2000 she moved to Texas for residency training at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. Then in 2013 completed her fellowship in Integrative Medicine through the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine where she was trained under the guidance of Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Tieraona Low Dog. She found that several of the modalities were also helping in her own struggle with infertility.  She went on to pursue further training in acupuncture and Chinese Traditional Medicine, attended ayurvedic medicine workshops, and completed a yoga teacher training program under Sloane Park.  After almost 11 years in general obstetrics and gynecology practice, she decided to follow her calling and passion and Roots Integrative Gynecology came to fruition. Most recently, Dr. Limosnero has been Board Certified in Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Integrative Medicine. She enjoys spending time with her husband Robert, her two amazing sons Noah and Xander, cooking, practicing yoga, walking, spending time in nature, and practicing mindfulness.

Practice Philosophy

When was the last time you spent ample time visiting with your physician and having your concerns truly heard? At our practice, we take the time to build a relationship with you, and we partner with you to not only treat your symptoms, but discover the underlying causes of your symptoms.

We aim to empower and educate you, so we can uncover and treat the root cause of 'dis-ease' and encourage you to live life to your highest potential.

We take a holistic approach to wellness and healing. When you make an appointment with us, we’ll consider mind, body, spirit, relationships, family, community, individual strengths, needs, and struggles. We take into account your personal history and use both integrative and western medicine to provide individualized care that is customized to you.

  • Recommend individualized therapies such as herbs, vitamins, nutraceuticals, dietary changes, and mind-body techniques
  • Refer to alternative forms of therapy such as acupuncture, chiropractic, medical hypnosis, or energy healing
  • Prescribe medications and bioidentical hormones
  • Perform surgery when appropriate

Principles of Integrative Medicine

The Defining Principles of Integrative Medicine

  1. Patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.
  2. All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.
  3. Appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods facilitates the body's innate healing response.
  4. Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.
  5. Integrative medicine neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.
  6. Good medicine is based in good science. It is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.
  7. Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.
  8. Practitioners of integrative medicine should exemplify its principles and commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development.
