10% of women suffer from endometriosis, a painful, often chronic disorder that typically affects women of reproductive age.
Endometriosis is the result of endometrial tissue growing outside the uterus, even into the pelvis and beyond. Symptoms of endometriosis can include painful periods, pain in the pelvis, and infertility. Endometriosis can negatively impact quality of life, both physically and emotionally.
At the Lapidus Clinic our approach to healthcare focuses on the whole person, taking into account lifestyle, environment, genetics, and other factors. Functional medicine seeks to find the underlying cause of disease and to treat the whole person, not just symptoms. The functional medicine approach can be particularly effective for treating women with endometriosis, as it can help to pinpoint any lifestyle contributors or environmental exposure that may be contributing to the disorder.
Treatment of endometriosis at The Lapidus Clinic
Dr. Lapidus may recommend lifestyle changes, perhaps including dietary changes, exercise, and stress reduction to help reduce problematic symptoms. We may also recommend dietary supplements and herbs to support the body’s natural healing processes.
Endometriosis and its symptoms can have a large impact on quality of life for sufferers. Functional medicine can be a useful approach, as it seeks to pinpoint and address the underlying causes of the endometriosis, not just the symptoms, and improve overall well-being and health.
