Women’s health encompasses a wide range of concerns, from optimizing overall health and well-being to diagnosing and treating specific conditions unique to females. 

Functional medicine takes a holistic approach to women’s health, considering your lifestyle, preferences, budget and needs. We offer evidence-based solutions such as supplements, herbal medicines, and dietary changes that support the body’s natural healing abilities. Our approach includes a comprehensive history and science-based lab testing to identify underlying causes of women’s health conditions. We understand the optimal timing for testing hormone levels based on cycle timing and consider nutrient status and other factors based on clinical history. This eliminates guesswork and helps you achieve your health goals.

We strive to provide personalized and effective treatment options tailored to your unique health needs.

Causes

Identifying the triggers of autoimmune disease is a complex process that involves an in-depth examination of a patient’s health history. While genetics may play a role, lifestyle, diet, and environment are often greater contributing factors. We also investigate potential infections, particularly viral and bacterial ones that may have gone undiagnosed.

For example, the H pylori bacteria that causes stomach infections has been linked to thyroid autoimmunity. Hashimoto’s has been associated with the hard-to-detect Epstein Barr Virus, Other factors that can trigger autoimmune disease include mold toxicity, long covid, heavy metal toxicity, hormonal imbalances, and mitochondrial dysfunction.

Once we identify the underlying condition or trigger, we can work to correct imbalances and provide support to manage the condition successfully.
