Women's Wellness Atlanta
Today, women lead very busy and active lives. There is an expectation that, as women, we can do it all: work full-time, be attentive wives, caring mothers and caretakers of aging parents. There is usually little time left over to care for ourselves.
There is no greater investment a woman can make than in her own health, working to prevent chronic disease, avoid anxiety and depression and maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Atlanta Functional Medicine offers complete services for women’s wellness, with a comprehensive selection of natural, holistic treatments for every stage of a woman’s life.
Signs of aging can seem so unfair: hair loss, brittle nails, dull skin. These are just some of the complaints from our female patients. While we can't stop time, we can reduce the effects of the aging process. Working as your partner, we will give you the knowledge and skills needed to take control of your own health and wellness.
A woman's nutrition plays a significant role in the way she looks and feels. Our trained medical staff can help you make drastic improvements through nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle changes and stress management.
Every woman will be affected by menopause. Symptoms of menopause can range from mild to severe and include irregular periods, hot flashes, difficulty sleeping and mood swings. Depending on the woman, we treat menopause with a number of natural therapies.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is one way that we treat the symptoms of menopause. Bioidentical hormones are plant-based compounds formulated in a laboratory to be identical to those that the body makes naturally.
For those who want to avoid hormone replacement therapy or those who do not need it, we offer other natural therapies such as herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, dietary changes and stress management techniques.
Managing Chronic Disease
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 7 out of 10 deaths among Americans each year are from chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer and stroke account for more than 50% of all deaths each year. For women, the three leading causes of death are also heart disease, cancer and stroke.
Chronic diseases which are common in women are:
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Autoimmune Disorders
The good news is that simple lifestyle changes can reduce a woman's risk for future disease and improve or even reverse the symptoms of current disease. Making these changes is especially important for women who have a family history of chronic disease such as cancer, heart disease or diabetes.
We offer comprehensive treatment planning and support for patients who want to manage their health with natural remedies and holistic therapies. We take a multi-pronged approach to women's health. Our therapies may include one or a combination of treatments such as dietary changes, nutritional supplements, stress management and lifestyle coaching.
