PMS, menopause, childbirth, breastfeeding, birth control are all part of being a woman. A woman’s body goes through so many different things throughout her life - from the start of your menstrual cycle to many years after it stops, your body is affected and at risk of many potential conditions.
It’s an emotional rollercoaster for most women; how could it not be with the fluctuation of hormones that floods your body. During certain ages, hormone levels change, and as a result of this, you experienced many uncomfortable or annoying symptoms.
We often don’t put much thought into our health until we are faced with a problem. However, many problems may go unnoticed until it’s a major. That’s human nature!
Our Functional Medicine Clinic in Overland Park, KS has been providing healthcare for women to prevent and relieve many diseases that affect them. We achieve this by uncovering the root causes of the disease or symptoms and addressing them directly.
We are all different; this is why, as a functional doctor, we consider every aspect of your life - your medical history, your genetics, environment, nutrition, and lifestyle. Understanding each of these will help to determine the best treatment method for your individualized needs and lifestyle.
