Functional Medicine and Women's Health

Functional medicine is a system of biology. It uses the strategy of treating the root of the disease. By taking a look and understanding it treats the condition from the cellular level, and heals it all together. This type of medicine does not just treat the symptoms. As each person is different from another, so are the symptoms or differential diagnoses.

This blog will look at how this kind of therapeutic approach helps aid hormone imbalance and promote fertility.

Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones are secreted from the endocrine glands of our body and released into the bloodstream. They act as chemical messengers, controlling numerous glands and the balance of the body. Hormones are essential to our body as they control metabolism, reproduction, mood, and sleeping patterns. If a hormone is over-secreted or under-secreted, that leads to hormone imbalance. It disrupts the balance of our bodies, resulting in a vast range of symptoms and health problems.

Estrogen, Testosterone, Progesterone, Cortisol, Thyroid, DHEA, and Vitamin D are all hormones. They get produced in one type of tissue. These hormones move throughout the bloodstream to various regions of the body. Specific “messages” are sent through these hormones. When the messages get disturbed due to unavoidable circumstances, it can cause problems.

It targets the core issue of hormone imbalance. With the help of treatment, it brings the body back to its natural state—the state where hormones stay balanced without treatment plans.

Promoting Fertility

Another important center of women's well-being that functional medicine acts on is fertility. Many number of women suffer from not being able to conceive. Hormonal imbalance can be a notable area from where the problem of fertility issues begins.

Functional medicine takes a physical, mental, and emotional approach to fertility. Many factors which have an impact on reproductive function get considered. Nutrition, stress, inflammation, and gut health are suggested and further analyzed.

Nutrition

Nutrition is one of the main components aiding the complete balance of hormones and fertility. A diet rich in whole-grain foods and nutrient-rich meals increase the chances of better hormone regulation. Practitioners recommend taking an anti-inflammatory diet. You should add plenty of vegetables, healthy fats, lean protein, and complex carbs. You must also stop consuming processed foods, sugars, and more.

Stress management

Stress management is another key factor that adds to hormonal balancing and improves fertility. Chronic stress can cause a set back in the hormone balance. In the body, it affects ovulation, menstruation, and overall reproductive health.

Meditation and yoga are advised, along with deep breathing exercises and getting proper sleep, which also helps reduce stress.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease. Unlike traditional medicine, which often treats symptoms without addressing underlying problems, functional medicine seeks to understand the body and identify imbalances contributing to illness. Functional medicine practitioners use various tools, including nutrition, lifestyle changes, and supplements, to help their patients achieve optimum health. The root cause is a term used in healthcare to refer to the underlying cause of a disease or condition. A root cause may be genetic, environmental, or lifestyle-related. Identifying and addressing root causes is a key component of functional medicine.

I’m not sick. Should I still schedule a consultation?

Prevention is the best medicine, especially regarding your health. Most people believe that illness occurs in the body when you get older; this is not true. By taking steps to prevent disease and injury today, you can stay healthy and avoid costly medical bills later on down the road. Unhealthy habits create chronic inflammation in the body, leading to later illness.

What if I live in another state? Can you still be my doctor?

Yes! Our consultations are done virtually via phone or Internet via Zoom Calls.

Do you accept insurance?

We do not accept insurance. You can pay by credit card, debit card, HSA/FSA debit card, or care credit. You are welcome to submit the superbill for possible reimbursement from your insurance company. This document itemizes the services rendered and provides the insurance company with the information they need to process your claim. Many of our patients get up to 70% reimbursed.
We do not take any part in submitting claims or calling insurance companies, which is 100% the patient’s responsibility. We do not bill or participate in Medicare for any of our services.

Why don’t you accept insurance?

Unfortunately, insurance companies often dictate patients' care, limiting the effectiveness of treatments and time spent with our patients. Reimbursement rates are often too low to cover quality care costs. The administrative burden of dealing with insurance companies can be significant, which takes away from time that could be spent providing care to patients. We believe in providing the best possible care to our patients by spending as much time as necessary with each patient with personalized treatment plans to ensure their needs are met.

Where can I get my lab testing done?

Our most commonly recommended lab test for stress management is a non-invasive test done in the comfort of your home with ease.

Some labs may require bloodwork which we offer at our Conscious Medicine office. If the distance is an issue for lab testing, we are happy to assist you in finding a facility closer to where you live. At Lab Corp, you can schedule an appointment directly with their facility.

*To follow CDC sanitation and safety protocols, we only accept one patient at a time in our office, wear proper PPE, and disinfect them.*

Does insurance cover lab tests?

Lab tests are not covered by insurance. Many insurance plans, especially those provided by employers, only cover tests considered "medically necessary." You can check with your insurance supplier to see if they will reimburse you for out-of-network labs.

Lab tests are necessary because they can help diagnose many conditions, from uncomplicated infections to more severe diseases. They can also tell us how well your organs work and help us monitor your overall health.
