Holistic gynecology combines the best of both worlds: the latest in medical technology and diagnostics that conventional medicine has to offer, along with a range of complementary and alternative treatments your average doctor may not even be aware of yet.
The conventional approach to gynecology involves diagnosing and treating disease, whereas the holistic approach emphasizes creating a healthy body/mind/spirit which helps prevent disease. The holistic approach also looks to uncover the root cause of an illness, and then uses the most natural, yet safe and effective treatment protocols to heal the body from the inside out. Our doctors may make dietary recommendations, lifestyle upgrades, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, chelation therapy, nutrient IV therapy and much more. This approach can lead to faster, more complete healing with fewer medical interventions.
Many women want to incorporate alternative and natural methods of healing into their lives. They usually prefer these methods. Often times, when seeing a conventional physician, solutions involving pharmaceuticals and surgery are presented as the only options - holistic options are not given.
It is quite understandable that a woman would prefer to seek care from a female gynecologist. Who would better know what she is going through, in relationship to these issues, than another woman? As our female Gynecologists, Dr. Marcia A. Harris and Dr. Deanna Howard understands a woman from a woman's perspective.
Our holistic approach focuses on how a woman's life experience impacts her health. Working as partners, the doctor and patient see health not just as the absence of disease, but rather as wholeness and balance in all aspects of the patient’s life. The needs of women shift and change as they move through the cycles of the month as well as the cycles of their lives. Dr. Howard addresses “body, mind and spirit” issues with the understanding that those issues that impact one aspect always impact the others.
