Holistic gynecology is care for women throughout their entire lives, incorporating complementary and integrative medical approaches that include the body, mind and spirit. Holistic Gynecology is wellness, education and prevention beyond gynecology.
By integrating traditional western gynecological services such as pap smears, breast exams, laboratory testing, ultrasound and prescription medications (when necessary) with a variety of holistic healing arts, herbs, nutritional supplements, bio-identical hormones and nutrition, holistic gynecology is able to use more natural approaches to help treat endocrine disorders, bone health, weight gain, insomnia, osteopenia and depression.
Other conditions frequently treated include poor memory, anxiety, sexual pain and dysfunction, irregular periods, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, premenstrual syndrome, recurrent bladder infections, endometriosis and low libido. Holistic gynecology includes the use of special blends of essential oils for recurrent bacterial and yeast infections as well as abnormal pap-smears. The superior nutrients and special applications are used to boost immunity and rejuvenate the whole body.
Fertility evaluations, prevention of miscarriages and natural ovulation enhancements with herbs and fertility-enhancing diets are also incorporated into holistic gynecological services. Patients are also educated about the side-effects of conventional birth control, learn about non-hormonal alternatives, and are given information on sexually transmitted disease. Further, patients learn about whole-body detoxification and how important it is for improving one’s gynecological and overall well-being.
