Menstrual Disorders

Women who experienced irregular menses that occur at unpredictable times or have very heavy menstruation are categorized as having menstrual disorders. We will investigate the underlying imbalance and recommend gentle therapies to correct the problem.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

PMS symptoms can range from irritability and depression to bloating and acne. There are dozens of symptoms that have been attributed to PMS. Every woman experiences PMS in a different way. Many of these symptoms are precipitated by hormonal imbalance or lifestyle factors. Our doctors take the time to understand the underlying cause of your PMS symptoms and treat them appropriately.

Cervical Dysplasia (Abnormal Pap Smear)

We offer a herbal and nutritional treatment protocol using supplements and topical therapies to correct abnormal Pap smears. This treatment has a high success rate in reversing abnormal Pap smears, and may help you avoid surgery if you have abnormal cells.

Vaginitis

Yeast, bacteria, or hormonal changes can cause vaginal infections. What women may believe is a yeast infection is commonly caused by something else. A thorough examination and evaluation of your particular vaginal discomfort is necessary to determine the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatment. Often, it is necessary for a combination of investigational tools to be used including looking at vaginal discharge under a microscope or sending it in to the laboratory for evaluation. Integrative therapies can include pharmaceuticals as well as natural agents to relieve your current symptoms as well as addressing the underlying cause to prevent future occurrences.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a condition with an underlying cause of insulin resistance and hormonal imbalance. It is associated with symptoms such as irregular menses, infertility, weight gain, abnormal hair growth and acne. We offer a variety of treatment options incorporating conventional and natural means to control your symptoms and address the underlying causes.

Osteoporosis

We offer effective therapies that not only prevent further bone loss, but actually improve your bone strength and density. Diet, lifestyle modifications, weight-bearing exercise and nutritional supplements are all useful therapies for osteoporosis.

Fibrocystic Breasts

Many women complain of “lumpy bumpy” breasts that are oftentimes painful around their period. Many of these symptoms can be controlled through lifestyle modification and nutritional supplementation. We will discuss with you ways in which to improve your breast health. A comprehensive program designed to help you prevent breast cancer is also available.

Endometriosis

Women with endometriosis often experience painful periods and discomfort in their abdomens throughout the month. Our doctors evaluate each patient individually to determine contributing factors and possible reasons for the development of endometriosis. We employ therapies that target not only the underlying cause but also address the physical discomfort associated with endometriosis.
