Do you suffer with heavy irregular or absent periods, endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, tender breasts, PMS, menopausal symptoms or unexplained infertility, weight issues?
Paula Myrie offers a level of support to women, which is designed to help educate and get to the root of their female related health issues. It maybe the case that you have a received a diagnosis such as fibroids from a gynaecologist and have been advised to have a hysterectomy or to take medication. You may not feel comfortable with what has been suggested and feel you would like to explore options.
In most situations there are other options available and as a Naturopathic Physician Paula will guide you through those options in order to achieve the most beneficial treatment plan for you. It is important to know that natural medicine and conventional medicine are not mutually exclusive and the use of integrated medicine can very much be a part of a women’s treatment plan depending on her health problems. However, a large proportion of women that Paula has treated have experienced significant changes with the use of natural medicine, nutritional advice and lifestyle changes without having to experience any invasive treatment.
Her approach to treating and supporting women is to not only get to the root of your health concern but also to educate and empower you in order to avoid the same issues reoccurring. A vital part of female health is taking control and understanding what is happening with your body and in order to do that questions need to be asked and answered to achieve the right outcome for an individual and to avoid any pressured and reactive decisions being made.
Paula is passionate about offering support to women who quite often become overwhelmed with their health issues and having to process any information they have been given about their condition. These are the times when patience, support and a strong therapeutic relationship is necessary from a health care professional and this is what is considered one of the highest priorities for Paula when treating patients as this contributes to achieving the best results.
We are living in a society where there is an increasing demand on women psychologically affecting their emotional health, which can manifest physically. The challenges of trying to achieve in the work place in what is essentially a male dominated environment, the task of balancing child care whilst trying to build a career and earning an income and the need to have to survive in what is very much a competitive world can have consequences to health. Such demands can have such a negative effect on a women’s body because in order to meet the demands stated above a woman tends to neglect the innate part of her which promotes nourishment and nurturing of the self on a daily basis. This can result in blockages within the body such as restricted blood flow, limited lymphatic flow, degeneration of cell production, all of which can lead to disease and dysfunction commonly presented in female health conditions.
It is important to consider your health issues as a whole when looking for treatment, such as the emotional, physical and cellular function, which all have an affect on each other when either one is out of balance. Conventional medicine only treats symptoms, for example you could be given painkillers to treat your headaches, the Pill to regulate your cycle, antibiotics for skin problems, and perhaps even antidepressants to deal with the emotional factors. You can be pumped up with all sorts of drugs, but once they are stopped, the problem will return. The root cause is not addressed; the underlying problem remains, no matter how good medication makes you feel in the short-term. It is also worth noting that many drugs have unacceptable side effects, and in an attempt to feel better in the short-term you may well be causing long-term damage to your overall health. Therefore if a more deeper and holistic approach to your health care appeals to you please feel free to contact me at Simply Health Clinical practice and appointment for an initial consultation can be arranged.
