Holistic Nurse Practitioner
Irina Serebryakova’s interest in the health field grew out of her background in fitness and health, even though she had been trained as an engineer in Europe. She hosted a health educational program on national TV in Europe and, because of this experience, discovered that she was passionate about sharing wellness information with others.
After receiving her MS in Nursing from the Decker School of Nursing at Binghamton University in 2006, Irina developed into a devoted student and practitioner of many alternative approaches to achieving total holistic health. She has extensive nutritional training with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and Premier Research labs. In addition, she is trained in holistic modalities such as weight management, whole body detoxification, nutraceuticals, essential oils, spiritual medical intuition and kinesiology. She is also trained and certified as a First Surgical Assist during surgeries and is able to remove abnormal lesions, perform biopsies and conduct colposcopies.
In addition, Irina is continuously learning and collaborating with the members of the Academy of Preventative and Innovative Medicine. Her training extends to endocrine disorders such as hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, depression, anxiety, and sex-hormone deficiencies. She practices holistic gynecology by utilizing non-hormonal BC, bio-identical hormone restoration, thermography as an alternative to mammograms and essential oils for abnormal pap-smears and infections. These approaches have helped patients to reduce symptoms such as irregular and painful periods, fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes,vaginal dryness, poor memory, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, insomnia andosteoporosis.
Irina also applies QRA (Quantum Reflex Analysis [includes nutritional training and certification]) muscle testing to tap into the wisdom of the body to reveal the bio-energetic status of key organs and glands. At Groton Wellness Irina integrates traditional western medicine with a variety of alternative healing approaches to guide patients through weight management, nutritional deficiencies, bone density concerns, hormonal imbalances, heavy metals detoxification, women’s health concerns,including holistic gynecology, and a variety of endocrine disorders so that patients are able to reach their fullest health potential.
Irina lives in Massachusetts and in her spare time practices yoga, weight lifting and dancing. She also enjoys digital photography, oil painting, mosaic projects and outdoors activities.

“Dear Irina, I want to thank you for the big change you have made in my life. I had become very overweight on an unhealthy diet, was losing my zest for life, and becoming depressed on a daily basis. You asked many detailed questions on my first visit with you and you suggested that I undergo a body cleansing using the Standard Process method and advised me to take a number of supplements. You also made a number of suggestions regarding a better nutrition intake. As a result of following your advice, I lost weight, regained my sense of self-confidence, and am enjoying an alertness that I have not felt in years. Your concern for my well-being is greatly appreciated and I hope to continue a professional relationship with you for many more years.” ~ Loyal Patient
“I am so excited about the progress I am making with the procaine treatments that I would like to write a testimonial to share with others!
I started procaine about 1 mth ago and after the first treatment, I saw impressive results! I am a 2x cancer survivor and had a lot of scarring all over my neck due to the tonsillar and tongue cancer.
My skin in my neck area has always been very rigid and sore to the touch due to all of the radiation and chemo. that I had, so when Irina suggested procaine I thought it would be a great fit for me.
Luckily it was! The treatment was exciting to have the medicine go into the targeted areas that I have had such difficulty with all these years. I was surprised that there was very little discomfort during the treatment and it was a wonderful experience to feel my neck release as the procaine went in. After the treatment, I felt my whole nervous system was a lot more relaxed and it felt good to be in my skin again. I have also been suffering from IC for the past 2 ½ yrs and noticed that the procaine helps with all the bladder inflammation that I have been dealing with on a daily basis. I have not had a bad flare in weeks now and I am starting to add back some of my problem foods that I had issues with.
Irina also treated me with procaine for vulvodynia, I have been experiencing a chronic burning sensation for several months now and noticed after treatment that this area has improved about 50% to date and I can’t wait to see more results as we progress with the treatment!
I have another treatment coming up and I cannot wait, this stuff is truly magic and I wake up every day with hope and gratitude for the progress that I have made in the past month. I could not be more grateful to Irina and her extensive knowledge in the area of gynecology and holistic medicine.
I look forward to my visits with Irina, she makes me feel that she is taking this journey with me on my path to healing and that there is nothing that we can’t overcome!
Lots of Gratitude!”
