When we talk about women’s health we’re often talking about hormones and the symptoms that can occur when hormones are out of balance. Conditions such as PMS, irregular menses, painful or heavy menses, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, menopause and infertility can conditions that are associated with underlying causes, such as, hormone imbalances or other causes. Our Naturopathic doctors are trained to look at the underlying cause of your health concern and treat the cause. We can help you find effective solutions to your individual women’s health concern.
The other aspect of women’s health that is important is routine screening tests, including Pap smears, mammograms, dexa scans (bone mineral density test), STD screening (when indicated) and annual well-woman exams. These tests can be ordered or performed by our Naturopathic medical doctors who are avid supporters of preventative medicine through active screening and supportive self-care. Your doctor can determine what the appropriate tests are for you and the frequency they should be done depending on your individual life-style and risk factors.
Two important test we utilize is GenPap, a new test that with one sample gives you information on yeast, viruses, bacteria, pre-screening of cervical cancer, as well as, routine Pap screening result and in depth hormonal testing for women.
