What is Holistic Gynecology?
Much like standard gynecology, holistic gynecology is a practice that treats conditions and illnesses specific to women, with an emphasis on the reproductive system. Holistic gynecology differs from standard gynecology due to Dr. Kothandaraman’s integrative approach to treatment, including a comprehensive assessment of your overall physical health and mental wellbeing and how those can be addressed through information obtained during your visit.
What is Integrative Care?
Integrative care merges holistic, functional medicine and healing principles with the traditional expertise of Dr. Kothandaraman. Together, you can identify areas of your health that could use improvement and that are unique to your needs. After these parameters have been defined, Dr. Kothandaraman will create a treatment plan based on natural, non-invasive procedures.
Holistic Gynecology can be thought of as a more comprehensive form of therapy, opting to treat the patient as a whole, instead of narrowing the focus to the disease only. Throughout the process, you and Dr. Kothandaraman will work together to achieve a healthier mind, body, and spirit, with the goal of preventing illness from occurring and managing existing conditions.
What is Included in Holistic Gynecology?
Dr. Kothandaraman recommends several services that target fundamental areas of your life that can influence your gynecological health:
Maintaining a healthy diet full of the vitamins and nutrients you need is especially crucial during pregnancy. For example, it’s recommended that you receive 400 micrograms of folic acid daily to prevent major congenital disabilities.
There is a range of vitamins and mineral supplements that can help prevent symptoms associated with menopause. Supplements can also help fill in dietary gaps during pregnancy, ensuring that expecting mothers are healthy, along with their baby.
Postpartum depression and menopause can cause women to fall into mentally and physically vulnerable states that can damage their health. Dr. Kothandaraman can help you make positive changes that steer you toward a healthier state of being.
Simple changes to your diet or exercise routine under the supervision of Dr. Kothandaraman are enough to improve your gynecological health. With her expert guidance and recommendations, you can improve your overall health, improve longevity and reduce the risk of chronic diseases!
