Integrative Women's Health Program

Personalized holistic care. Experience
the difference.

Women’s health so often isn’t a priority. Many women are so busy with their careers, family and home that they have little time to care for their own needs.  Unfortunately, by not caring for themselves, women run the risk of becoming overworked, overstressed and ultimately  ill to the detriment of their family – who they so dearly love.

Apart from female specific health conditions such as perimenopause and menopause, women are more prone to health  issues such as hypothyroidism, hormone imbalances, and osteoporosis that need to be monitored on a regular basis.

Menopause and Hormone Issues

As you age, it is common to experience hormonal imbalances. Women undergoing hormone imbalances may experience a plethora of symptoms including –

  • Hot flashes or Night Sweats
  • Premenstrual Symptoms
  • Menstrual Issues and Irregularity
  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety or Depression
  • Weight Gain
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Low Libido, Impotence, or Vaginal Dryness
  • Fibrocystic Breasts
  • Bone Loss (Osteoporosis)
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Acne

Do any of these sound familiar?

Pap Smears and Pelvic Examinations

Women who are over the age of 21 or who are sexually active should have a pap smear every three years. This helps  identify any abnormalities, including cervical cancer or infection. Pelvic exams are completed to check for masses and abnormalities within the female structure.

Breast Examinations and Screenings

Approximately 230,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Although the statistics are staggering, women who stop smoking, complete self-examinations and eat a wellbalanced diet can diminish the chance of  developing cancer

Self-examinations

Women are encouraged to perform monthly self-examinations of their breasts. If a woman notices a lump or the texture  of her breast changes, she should contact her physician immediately.

Annual Clinical Breast Examinations

During the annual breast examination, the physician will perform a clinical breast examination to check for lumps,  bulges or changes to the breast tissue. Additionally, breast cancer screening diagnostic tests may be ordered which  may include a mammogram, ultrasound, or MRI. Your physician will help guide you toward the diagnostic test that is  right for you.

 

Thermograms and Mammograms

In addition to proper breast self-exams and physician exams, Thermography and Mammography together provide  the earliest detection system for breast cancer.

Hormone Imbalances

Your integrative physician will check for hormonal imbalances using saliva tests or blood tests. If an imbalance occurs,  dietary changes, herbal formulas and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help. For more information on  bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, click here

Bone Loss Testing

Osteoporosis causes your bones to become weak and brittle. Bones can fracture with increased stress including from  a fall, coughing, or even bending over. The most common fractures occur in the hips, wrists or spine. Osteoporosis  occurs when the body cannot create enough new bone to replace the removal of old bone. As you age, the bones  begin losing the ability to store minerals.

 

Bone Density Tests

Your physician may recommend bone density tests if needed. A bone density test utilizes x-ray to determine how  much calcium and other minerals are in the bones. Often times, the spine, hip and forearm are tested. A higher  mineral content in the bone lowers the risk of fractures.
