Your Life Belongs to You. Take It Back.

Are you ready for a different kind of GYN care?  Tired of being treated for one problem at a time but knowing that you are still not treating the whole problem?  Welcome to a revolutionized health care experience for women.  

Here at My Midwife for Life, we recognize that the current medical system is falling women with it's lack of respect, ability to listen and to genuinely care.  Often instead of the focus being on promoting health it is on disease management and over diagnosis.  The problems women face are preventable and reversible if we search for and treat the root causes.  This is where functional medicine comes in.  

Women's Functional Medicine :

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a comprehensive, holistic way of looking at health and disease.  It’s a personalized approach to medicine that questions why illness occurred in that individual, in consideration of their genetics, microbiome, lifestyle, nutrition, and environment.  It seeks to identify the root causes of dysfunction and chronic disease, which often stems from our standard American diets, high stress lifestyles, toxic environment, and unhealthy habit-based choices. 


What is Functional Gynecology?

Using this functional medicine approach to diagnose and treat women’s health conditions, such as endometriosis, heavy periods, PCOS, infertility, recurrent miscarriage and menopausal symptoms, is the foundation for practicing functional gynecology. Truly, the way you manage your stress, food you eat or don’t eat, the way you move or don’t move your body, what you put on your skin, what medicine you take, and what relationships you nourish, affects your hormones.  These things can also effect your natural female cycle, your gut health, your mood, and whether or not you develop many of the gynecological conditions mentioned above. If you are already suffering from a gynecological condition, functional gynecology integrates major diet and lifestyle changes to heal the root cause of the issue and not just put a band-aid on the symptoms with a pill or procedure. This type of care is most successful when there is an active, ongoing partnership between the patient and her provider. Liberating the body of disease and getting to a point of health and vitality is an ongoing journey, and Bethany is perfectly equipped to guide you along the way.
