It is early summer and you awake one morning with a headache, a stiff neck and achy joints, and you just can't seem to shake the fatigue. A week or even a month earlier you may have noticed a circular reddish rash that surfaced around what looked like an insect bite, spread for a few days, and then disappeared. Perhaps you didn't, though. You've spent a lot of time in the outdoors, raking in the yard near the brush and trees on your property, or perhaps hiking in the woods. Late spring or early summer is not the usual time to be coming down with the flu, but your symptoms surely seem flu-like, and all you wish to do is find relief from the headache, the aches and pains in your knees, neck, and back, and so you go back to bed.

As we go through life, we women undergo many biological changes. A delicate balance of hormone regulation, production and metabolism exists in our bodies throughout these various stages. This complex choreography of our bodies' indigenous endocrine system supports and shapes a woman's health on every level. When an imbalance develops, problems may arise that range in scale from mild discomfort to troublesome symptoms and even to disease, if left unaddressed.

The integrative approach to pain management at Patients Medical combines traditional therapeutic methods of pain treatment with alternative and complementary treatments, taking a holistic view of the patient and the causes for their pain. At times considered anecdotal and poorly substantiated by the mainstream medical community, alternative and complementary treatments are rapidly gaining ground, largely through the numbers of people turning to alternative methods when Western medical treatment alone falls short of their needs.

Though it is present all around us, oxygen has fascinating properties. This element is a vital part of life. We take it in with every breath. At high concentrations it can be a lifesaving measure and certain conditions can be dramatically improved and sometimes healed.
