Functional Gynecology is a branch of Functional Medicine which aims to address the underlying true causes of a disease, empower the female body and promote optimal wellness. The Functional approach does not focus merely on symptoms, but employs novel diagnostic tests and thorough Medical History Questionnaires to analyze each patient’s biochemical, metabolic, genetic and lifestyle factors and then compile a personalized therapeutic plan that will not only alleviate the symptoms but treat the real causes of a disease.
Functional Gynecology albeit based on the solid roots of Western classical Medicine, incorporates into daily practice novel scientific findings and knowledge, in order to provide women with a complete and compendious therapy.
Women have a longevity advantage compared to men, which means that they live longer. Life expectancy for women in Europe reached 83.5 years. This phenomenon however means, that women who usually go into menopause between the ages of 45 and 55, live more years without the beneficial effects of the sex hormones. Furthermore, hormonal imbalances such as the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome become even more frequent nowadays. These data make apparent the necessity for a continuous hormonal invigilation and intervention when needed.
