Female hormone balance is essential for a high level of health and wellbeing. Estrogen and progesterone, for example, not only affect menstruation, fertility and menopausal symptoms but are also essential for healthy immunity, weight, brain function, sleep and digestive function. The balance of estrogen and progesterone is, in turn, effected by stress, diet, certain medications, inadequate sleep, digestive disorders and imbalances of other hormones. We take a gentle and comprehensive approach to treating hormone related symptoms that addresses the full spectrum of underlying causes and contributes not only to hormonal health but improvement of a woman’s total health and wellbeing as well.
Gynecology with Gentleness and Respect
Gynecological visits can be uncomfortable and intimidating and women who prefer a natural approach to health care may have concerns about some conventional treatment recommendations. We strive to make gynecological care as comfortable and respectful as possible. All gynecological services at our clinic are preformed by Dr. Greta. Ample appointment time is given so that exams can proceed in a relaxed and respectful manner and so that all findings and treatment options can be discussed and questions answered. Most gynecological conditions can be treated very successfully with natural therapies but if conventional procedures are necessary the risks and benefits will be discussed thoroughly with the patient.
About 1 in 8 women in the United States develops breast cancer over the course of their lives. While much is known about underlying factors that increase a woman’s likelihood of developing breast cancer, current screening recommendations are focused almost exclusively on early detection rather than prevention. We utilize advanced screening methods, including Alfa Sight thermography to assess breast health and physiological factors associated with increased risk. Thankfully, most of the known factors contributing to breast cancer risk can be influenced using diet, supplementation and lifestyle modifications, and improvements can be confirmed using follow up testing.
Natural Fertility Support
We generally have excellent results assisting women with fertility related issues in achieving successful pregnancies and healthy births. Difficulty becoming pregnant can occur for a variety of reasons including imbalances in estrogen and progesterone or other hormones, excessive stress, history of birth control pill use, inadequate nutrition, exposure to environmental estrogens, miscalculation of fertile period or low sperm count in their partner. By identifying the underlying issues and restoring optimal balance, most women are able to become pregnant, carry their pregnancies to term and deliver healthy babies.
