Integrative Elements

Our Integrative Approach

At the Couri Center for Gynecology and Integrative Women’s Health, we believe in a whole-person approach to medicine. This integrative approach addresses the cause of chronic disease, not the symptoms. By addressing the root of the issue, healing can begin.  As symptoms improve, your overall well-being is restored, and vitality returns.

Food as Medicine

We believe that what we eat matters and can contribute to chronic health conditions. With the help of our Registered Dietitian, we teach you to focus on whole foods—vegetables, fruits, grains, and lean meats.  Research indicates that upwards of 70% of the US population has food intolerances.  These food sensitivities can cause chronic inflammation and may be displayed in a variety of symptoms.  Food sensitivities can also contribute to weight gain and difficulty losing weight, despite positive dietary changes and exercise.  Changing your diet can change your life.
