Women’s Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

As a woman, there are key differences between your health and the health of the men in your life. Women’s health refers to the conditions that specifically affect women and the organs unique to them. Even situations that men and women both encounter affect women differently or at different rates. 

At Nutura Clinic, the team understands women’s health at all stages of life. Whether you’re struggling with hormone loss or would simply like to improve your health as a preventive measure against certain conditions, the team can help you create a personalized, comprehensive wellness plan with natural remedies and treatments to help you reach your goals.

Which conditions affect women’s health?

When people think of women’s health, they often think of sexual and reproductive health first. Your reproductive organs are vastly different than men’s and require gender-specific care and maintenance. At Nutura Clinic, the team can help you manage conditions affecting your sexual and reproductive health and other conditions that affect women disproportionately or differently than men. Naturopathic treatments can help treat or manage:

  • Symptoms of menopause
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stress
  • Heart problems
  • Infertility

During your consultation, the team completes a physical examination and asks about your health. They might also perform diagnostic tests and services like X-rays or blood testing. These tools can help them plan your treatment more effectively. 

Which treatments and services can benefit women’s health?

Nutura Clinic provides a wide range of treatments and services to improve your mental and physical wellbeing. They customize your treatment plan according to the specific goals you want to meet. Depending on your needs, your women’s health treatment plan might involve:

Herbal medicine

The team may recommend certain herbal supplements, teas, or topicals made from plant-based ingredients to reduce inflammation, nausea, and other symptoms associated with your health condition. 

Hormone therapy

Hormone therapy is a treatment for symptoms of perimenopause. During perimenopause, your female hormones like estrogen and progesterone dwindle and cause symptoms like hot flashes, sleep problems, and low libido. Replacing these hormones with hormone therapy can improve your quality of life and ease the transition into menopause. 

Nutritional counseling

In many cases, you can ease your symptoms and significantly improve your physical or mental wellbeing with a few changes to your diet. The on-staff wellness nutritionist at Nutura Clinic can coach you about what you eat and make sure you get the nutrients you need. 

Massage therapy

The team at Nutura Clinic uses a range of massage therapy techniques to manipulate your muscles and tissues, improve your circulation, relieve pain, and help you relax. 

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care aims to balance your body by restoring your spinal alignment. The team might add chiropractic care to your treatment plan to ease pain and stiffness throughout your body.
