About Reine Medicine

Reine [rèn] is French for Queen—a symbol of power and knowingness. These qualities are within us, and together we will work to unveil them through all facets of health and wellness. 

 

Reine Medicine was founded to help women discover their potential and natural ability to achieve optimal health. As a women-centric medical practice, we offer a unique approach to your healthcare. Through a true holistic process, we will discover what you need to reach your health goals. It’s vital we come together and learn from one another as well. We at Reine Medicine believe in the power of relationship and community for women’s health. We are powerful alone, but as a community we are limitless. 

 

Our passion is treating women over the age of forty. This is a time of transition and should be more fully understood and celebrated. This is not a time you need to “grin and bear it” or suffer through. Too many women suffer unnecessarily from fatigue, depression, anxiety, forgetfulness, hot flashes, night sweats, trouble sleeping, and many other undesired symptoms. It is possible to feel amazing and gain a deeper understanding of our mind/body—at any age.

 

The relationship with your doctor should be a partnership and a discovery of what your body needs to heal and thrive. It is Reine Medicine's purpose to find the ways in which you can enrich your life, love your body, and reach your full potential—every day.

 

Reine Medicine is an alternative to what we’ve become accustomed to in healthcare. We are here to listen, connect, and be a part of your journey to optimal wellbeing.

 

Trust your innate wisdom. Make informed decisions for your health. Feel empowered.

FAQ

1/ What types of conditions are treated at Reine Medicine?

Reine Medicine specializes in women's health, with a strong focus on treating women over the age of forty. This is the time when we experience the transitions into Perimenopause, Menopause, and Postmenopause. During these times, we may suffer from symptoms and illnesses such as, fatigue, low libido, depression, anxiety, weight changes, autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, digestive issues, and trouble sleeping. 

2/ Do you offer bio-identical hormone therapy?

Yes. Hormone therapy can be very beneficial and often life-changing. The woman’s body is multifaceted and so beautifully unique—most often our body requires more than just the replacement of hormones. So, depending on where you are on your health journey and what’s realistic for your life, we’ll decide together how bio-identical hormones may be right for you.

The bio-identical hormones are prescribed in an organic oil base with no harmful solvents.

3/ Do you test hormone levels?

Yes. Dr. Heiger prefers urine hormone testing, but it’s not always the first thing we do before initiating hormone therapy. If you are perimenopausal, hormone levels are erratic and can greatly fluctuate. This makes it difficult to test and get an accurate measurement of your hormone levels. If you are postmenopausal, we can guarantee hormone levels are low. In this case we may decide to treat first, improve how your feel, and then later test levels to make sure you are metabolizing hormones properly and levels are within the optimal ranges. 

4/ Is there an option for in-person visits? 

Yes. Those who are local to the Bainbridge Island area have the option of seeing Dr. Heiger in-person at the Dayaalu Center. Telemedicine appointments are available for all patients.
