Endometriosis -Non-surgical therapy in the San Luis Obispo and Avila Beach, CA area at The Lapidus Clinic.
Endometriosis is a chronic, often painful condition that affects an estimated 10% of women of reproductive age. The Lapidus Clinic can help with non-surgical treatment options.
Endometriosis occurs when endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, grows outside the uterus, usually in the pelvic area.
Endometriosis can cause a variety of symptoms, including pelvic pain, painful periods, and infertility. Endometriosis can have a significant negative impact on a woman’s quality of life, causing physical and emotional distress.
At the Lapidus Clinic, functional medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on the whole person, taking into account their lifestyle, environment, genetics, and other factors. It seeks to identify the underlying causes of disease and to treat the whole person, rather than just the symptoms. This approach can be particularly helpful for women with endometriosis, as it can help to identify any lifestyle factors or environmental exposures that may be contributing to the condition.
Dr. Lapidus may recommend lifestyle changes, such as stress reduction, dietary changes, and exercise, to help reduce symptoms. We may also recommend dietary supplements and herbs to support the body’s natural healing processes. For some women, functional medicine can be a helpful complement to traditional medical treatments, such as hormone therapy or surgery.
In summary, endometriosis can have a significant impact on a woman’s quality of life. Functional medicine can be a useful approach to treatment, as it seeks to identify and address the underlying causes of the condition, rather than just the symptoms. It may also help to reduce symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.
