Holistic Gynecology in Carol Stream, IL
Traditional gynecology and obstetrics are changing. For those specialists in this corner of the medical field, the pressures are tremendous. Increased insurance premiums, state restrictions, and so on, have become obstacles standing in the way of patient care. Many gynecologists and obstetricians have had enough. To bring back quality medical care, many have embraced integrative and holistic medicine. Holistic gynecology offers patients more treatment options, and treatments focused on prevention.
What is Holistic Gynecology and Integrative Medicine?
Holistic and integrative medicine focus on treating the body as a whole. By treating the body as one system of interrelated parts, not as separate systems, new answers become apparent. Issues that may have seemed unrelated or problems that were hard to find the root of can now be treated. Healthcare professionals are no longer missing the forest for the trees, by treating the patient, not the symptoms.
Many of the procedures and methods of holistic and integrative medicine supplement and help bolster traditional western medical treatments. Holistic medicine is not in competition with Western medicine; the goal is to fill in the gaps. Holistic should be spelled 'whole-istic” because together with traditional western medicine, in an integrative approach, comprehensive healthcare is finally real.
What does Holistic Gynecology Treat?
Ever hear the adage: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? This is holistic treatment. It's not designed to take the place of surgery and other treatments, but rather offer natural preventive treatments so you'll never have to have that surgery. Holistic gynecology offers treatment for the following conditions:
- Cervical dysplasia
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Pelvic floor issues
- Pelvic pain
- Urinary system issues (urinary incontinence )
- Female sexual dysfunction
- Vulvar pain
- And many more conditions
Instead of treating these conditions directly, holistic gynecology provides continuous preventive treatment, significantly reducing the chances you'll develop any of them.
What are the Holistic Treatments?
Holistic gynecologists use time-tested treatments to gradually persuade the body into optimal health. A few the treatment options include:
- Lifestyle management
- Stress management / reduction
- Herbal remedies (Peruvian Ginseng, Muira puama, Black cohosh root and Dong Quai to name a few)
- Massage therapy
- Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
