Functional Medicine for Women's Health

Hippocrates said:

“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.”

Integrative Medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that combines the best of both Functional Medicine and Allopathic Medicine (conventional medicine). This model of care recognizes each patient as a whole person and not just a collection of diseases and/or symptoms. Integrative Medicine values a strong patient-provider relationship and encourages the patient to play an active role in their own healing process.

Integrative Medicine makes use of both traditional and complementary medicine techniques, and does not reject the value of either Functional Medicine or Allopathic Medicine. It is based on science and the use of the most effective and least invasive methods to treat ailments. Additionally, Integrative Medicine promotes healthy behaviors to prevent disease and uses our body's natural healing force to restore well-being.

In Women's Health, Integrative Medicine can treat a variety of problems, including menstrual irregularities, menstrual cramping, premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, bloating, mood disorders like anxiety and depression, recurrent vaginal infections, breast tenderness, hot flashes, fatigue, low libido, painful intercourse, hormonal imbalances, recurrent ovarian cysts, polycystic ovarian syndrome and acne.  By treating the root cause of these issues and taking a holistic approach, Integrative Medicine can help women achieve optimal health and wellness.

By adopting the Integrative Medicine model, I am able to offer a comprehensive approach to women's health that considers each patient as a unique individual and takes into account their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Overall, Integrative Medicine offers a better model of medical care as it values the whole person, promotes a partnership between the provider and the patient, and uses the most effective and least invasive methods to treat an ailment.
