Women's Health

Overview

Women’s Health is the branch of medicine which studies and treats conditions of the female body, particularly the reproductive system. Women’s Integrative Health integrates aspects of traditional western medicine with well-documented natural methods to give the best care to women.

The goal of Women’s Integrative Health is to treat the whole woman rather than individual symptoms or diseases. Because so many factors contribute to women’s health concerns in different stages of life, our approach cares for the body, mind, and spirit of women of all ages. The focus is on finding and treating the “root” cause of a problem, rather than solely treating surface-level symptoms.

  • Vasometer symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats

Through lab testing, our doctors assess your hormone values and then prescribe for defeciencies in estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and pregnenolone. 

Therapies

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Plant-based Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), for hormone related transitions, can be extremely beneficial for alleviation of debilitating symptoms as well as the promotion of optimal health. Using these treatment modalities in a low dose, safe manner creates essentially no health risk of previously utilized high dose synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Learn more

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it compare with traditional gynecology?

The traditional gynecological services offered may include pap smears, breast exams, routine wellness exams, ultrasound, and prescription medicine (when necessary). Practitioners of integrative health tend to avoid surgical procedures as much as possible, unless absolutely necessary for healing.

Usually, non-invasive procedures and treatments are offered. These include a variety of effective natural solutions, such as nutritional supplements, essential oils, herbs, acupuncture, nutrition, and massage therapy.

As an integrative medical method, there is an emphasis on treating connected health concerns and assessing susceptibility to chronic conditions outside the scope of women’s reproductive health. It goes beyond gynecology; it treats the whole woman.

I am not familiar with natural treatments. How can I be sure they will help me?

When you schedule your initial consultation with a integrative health practitioner, he or she will assess your needs and discuss various options with you. Feel free to ask as many questions as you would like! One of the benefits of a holistic approach is the provider wants to work with the patient as much as possible. If you have any concerns or questions, your gyn will be happy to explain further.
