Women’s Health Q & A

What women’s health issues does naturopathic medicine treat?

Naturopathy offers a number of benefits for women who want to achieve a healthier balance in their lives. The focus of naturopathic medicine is to treat each patient as a whole person, and not just the sum of their symptoms and test results. 

An integrative approach allows for treatments that encompass your physiological needs as well as your emotional needs. For many women, finding balance is both a goal and a challenge, and naturopathic medicine is a powerful tool in achieving and sustaining that outcome.

Some of the women’s health issues that Dr. Nagallo at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic can assist with include:

  • Perimenopause and menopause care
  • Painful periods
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Abnormal bleeding (menstrual irregularities)
  • Cancer prevention for women in breast cancer remission
  • Adjunctive naturopathic care during chemotherapy or radiation
  • Fertility support
  • Pain and fatigue during pregnancy
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Another impactful service the practice provides is holistic care after cancer treatment. For women who’ve fought cancer, the ability to refocus on what their body needs is an excellent way to move forward in the best possible health.  

What are my options for menopause care?

Dr. Nagallo at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers comprehensive menopause care. Dr. Nagallo begins with a thorough evaluation to clearly identify your current needs. That allows her to craft a customized treatment plan to help you feel more like yourself as you navigate menopause and beyond. 

Hormone replacement therapy is the most common treatment for menopause symptoms. This approach supplements your natural hormone production with synthetic hormones. Because fluctuating hormone production is the root cause of many menopause symptoms, supplementation is a powerful treatment option. 

Bioidentical hormones are created from plant sources and share the exact same chemical makeup as the hormones your body produces naturally. Your body cannot detect the difference between bioidentical hormones and those your body manufactures.  

What can be done to treat dysmenorrhea? 

Dysmenorrhea is the medical term used to describe painful periods. If you dread your period because it interferes with your normal daily routines, acupuncture can help you regain control over your schedule. 

A growing body of evidence supports the efficacy of acupuncture for period pain. Frequent treatments can reduce the intensity of your period pain as well as the duration of cramping and other symptoms. Acupuncture is also great for addressing pain from uterine fibroids and endometriosis.
