Addressing women's chronic health symptoms and supporting proactive pregnancies with holistic lifestyle medicine.
Almost every woman of reproductive age experiences discomfort of some amount surrounding her period. But, when the level of discomfort presents to such a degree that it affects quality of life, holistic modalities and lifestyle intervention can be highly effective in addressing such syndromes and disorders as: PMS, PMDD, PCOS, fibroids, endometriosis, dysmenorrhea (painful or difficult menses), and amenorrhea (absence of menses).
More and more women are functioning in a fatigued state oftentimes resulting in a caffeine and carb/sugar addiction to get them through the day. Women often seek help through conventional medicine, but the root causes are frequently missed or excused as “unexplained” or worse “normal,” therefore women feel stuck, not heard and untreated. A deeper exploration into lifestyle habits and the hidden roots of the symptoms can address such issues as: loss of memory or focus, hormonal imbalance, insomnia, hyperactivity, thyroid/adrenal dysfunction, and anxiety/depression.
Wanting to get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy can be one of the most rewarding (and challenging) stages of a woman's life. Additionally, more and more research is being cited in the medical literature that this “critical window” can determine many health outcomes for both, mother and baby. Addressing lifestyle habits and integrating holistic modalities during the perinatal (conception), prenatal (pregnancy) and postnatal (postpartum) stages can prevent pregnancy complications and chronic illnesses.
It is becoming common knowledge that gut health is the root cause of many chronic disorders, syndromes and illnesses. Damage to your gut lining or your microbiome is often from unaddressed food triggers, lifestyle habits, mental and emotional stressors and/or some medications, such as antibiotics. Addressing these root causes through lifestyle intervention gives your body the ability to recalibrate naturally and optimize the gut-brain connection to boost your energy, relieve brain fog, balance your hormones, improve your immune system, and boost your happiness and energy.
