A Unique Approach to Women’s Health Optimization

Holtorf Medical Group

The most important thing to realize about Women’s health, is that we are each unique amongst women, and then, certainly different from men. Optimizing our health involves a broader view of ourselves as complex beings. The following 5

Energy:

Fatigue is the primary concern we hear as medical practitioners. This symptom could be due to a wide variety of possible causes: sleep, nutrition, hormones, infections, and/or stress. The treatment plan should involve a complex approach, treating the woman as a whole being.

Immune

Our immune system is what enables us to live harmoniously with our environment: warding off all potential threats in the form of viruses, bacteria, fungi, toxins, while receiving the nutrients in the form of food, sunlight, clean air and healthy relationships. More than finding ways to attack the “enemies”, a better long-term approach is to boost and support our immune systems from the inside out in the form of healthy nutrition, herbs and supplements, medications and lifestyle habits.

Hormones

Women are unique in that they cycle monthly through a wide range of hormonal shifts, where their biochemistry is altered drastically throughout the month. Additionally, her biochemistry changes drastically with each cycle of life: from childhood through menarche to puberty, young adulthood and motherhood, through perimenopause and menopause leading into maturity and end of life. It is important that a woman get to know her body throughout these stages, and listen intently to the needs of her body throughout her day, month and life.

Mental-Emotional

No one will argue with the fact that women are sensitive beings. Addressing her thoughts and emotions, relationship to herself and others, and her purpose in life are all necessary assignments for achieving optimal health.

Support:

Women support the weight of the world. We support our families, businesses, non-profits, schools and our communities. Therefore, we, in turn need support. It is paramount that women find a medical practitioner who actually takes the time to listen to their health concerns and goals. Gone is the one-pill-for-all approach, and “your labs are normal, it’s all in your head”. Women should feel that they are in partnership with their doctor and that they are building a long-term relationship, with the goal of optimizing their health throughout their life span.
