Holistic Gynecology Q & A

What is a holistic OB/GYN?

A holistic OB/GYN is a gynecologist and obstetrician who incorporates natural treatments in their practice. During an appointment with a holistic OB/GYN, the appointment centers around your mind, body, and spirit. Basically, a holistic OB/GYN  gets to the root of your health concerns in a multidisciplinary fashion. It allows your treatment to be tailored to your needs rather than taking a cookie-cutter approach to health.

How can a holistic OB/GYN help with conception?

If you’re struggling to get pregnant, it’s not always a problem that requires medication or invasive procedures. Often, the cause of the problem stems from your mental or physical health. That’s why a holistic OB/GYN can help improve your overall health.

One vital aspect of helping you get pregnant via a natural approach is nutritional counseling. Your weight, as well as nutritional deficiencies, can hinder conception, and in particular, your hormone production. A holistic OB/GYN helps you reach a healthy weight and can identify and correct nutrition deficits.

Stress can also inhibit your ability to get pregnant, but a holistic OB/GYN educates you on non-medicated stress management techniques like meditation to improve your chances of conception.   

At HER Wellness Health Center we are lucky to have practitioners in different fields we work with to create an individualized path to health

How can a holistic OB/GYN help with pregnancy?

Even though you’re carrying a bundle of joy, pregnancy itself isn’t always as miraculous due to unwanted side effects, such as back pain and nausea. If you want to avoid using pain medications during labor and delivery, she teaches you ways to handle your pain to maximize your comfort and ease.

How can a holistic OB/GYN help with menopause?

When your body finally enters menopause, you experience hormonal changes as a result of a decrease in hormone production, bringing about symptoms like:

  • Night sweats
  • Frequent mood changes
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Decreased sex drive

Using hormone therapy in combination with lifestyle changes and possible supplementations from an experienced holistic OB/GYN, you can control and manage these symptoms.

Does a holistic OB/GYN still offer any medications or diagnostics?

If necessary, a holistic OB/GYN tries to complement any medications with holistic treatments. However, medication therapy is sometimes the best course of action.  If you want a holistic approach for improving your sexual and reproductive health, contact HER Wellness Health Center for an appointment through the online form or calling the office.
