Women's Health

Happy Lady sitting on the floor

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.

What is Women’s Health?

Women’s health encompasses many things from menopause, infertility, PMS, Osteoporosis, and menstrual cycle. There are many health concerns and conditions that you’re faced with

  • Hot Flashes and Mood Swings
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Low Libido
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Irregular and Painful Periods
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Painful Intercourse

We can help you navigate this by addressing the underlying cause of your symptoms and health problems to give you relief from the condition, not just the symptoms.

What Are You Dealing With?

Infertility can be a result of hormone imbalances, such as thyroid levels. We’ll help you uncover these imbalances and recommend the right foods to add to your diet and any supplements to improve these levels. This can potentially prevent the need for any medical interventions with medications.

Menopause creates a slew of symptoms that range from bearable to unbearable. We can help you manage these symptoms and get your body functioning properly to eliminate them.

Hormone Imbalances affect many areas of your health, from your menstrual cycle to your metabolism. It can be the cause of your weight gain, and the reason for that feeling of something just doesn’t seem right. We’ll find the imbalance and address it accordingly so you can feel like yourself again.

So many things on a daily basis affect you as a woman - the foods you eat, the ones that you don’t, your lifestyle, environment, and your family history. There are health problems that you are predetermined to get. These things can be avoided by eating healthy, exercising correctly, and making sure your body is getting the things it needs to thrive.

If you are suffering from menopause, irregular and painful periods, vaginal dryness, fatigue, or any other female related issue, give us a call today. We will help you to find the cause and give you the relief that you are looking for.

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
