Women have special health care needs across the lifespan. At Integrative Medicine of Frederick, our team of practitioners will work to address the root cause of your concerns and to optimize your health, and that of your mother and daughters! We offer a number of specialized women’s health services in addition to Integrative Family Medicine:
Optimize Fertility | If you’re having problems conceiving and are looking for natural support to achieve pregnancy, we offer a variety of ways to help you enhance your fertility. We’ll look for any underlying causes or deficiencies which could be affecting you. And, through the use of an advanced genetic analysis tool, we can discover which foods and herbs can improve your personal chances for conception. Additionally, acupuncture may be useful because it helps regulate hormones, promote circulation, and reduce stress, resulting in better egg quality, and improved uterine blood flow and uterine health.
PMS | If your body doesn’t produce enough progesterone during your menstrual cycle, estrogen can continue to stimulate the growth of breast and uterine tissue in the later part of your cycle when it shouldn’t occur. This is referred to as “Estrogen Dominance” and causes the physical symptoms associated with PMS, like breast tenderness and excessively heavy periods with cramps. Low progesterone levels also affect your brain chemistry, which makes you sad, irritable, and moody. Want to feel like yourself all month? We can help you achieve better balance!
Bioidentical Hormones | Hormones including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA all have natural alternatives, derived from plants. They can be used to treat peri-menopause, menopause, PMS, and thyroid and adrenal problems. Bioidentical hormone balancing can improve decrease fatigue, stabilize mood, improve skin and muscle tone, reduce brain fog, increase sex drive, and help prevent bone loss due to menopause. We use creams and patches, not pellets, to put you in control of your dosing.
Escharotic Therapy for HPV | Escharotic therapy is a natural, evidence-based approach to HPV and cervical dysplasia. Conventional treatment is either watching and waiting, or a LEEP excision procedure, which removes significant tissue and may leave scar tissue. A scarred cervix may not open and close properly, which can interfere with conception and childbirth. Escharotic therapy is different. It works with your own immune system to help beat the HPV and to stimulate the regrowth of new, healthy cells. Learn more about the details here.
Breast Thermography | Breast thermography is a method of monitoring changes in your breasts without exposure to ionizing radiation and can help you assess your overall breast health. For women who do not want or cannot tolerate mammograms, this is an alternative that may help expose problems requiring investigation. However, thermography may also miss problems, so we suggest this procedure as an adjunct to breast self-exam and regular radiographic imaging. Learn more about thermography here.
