Integrative medicine blends conventional medical care with complementary and alternative treatments to achieve maximum benefits for patients. At The Chester County Hospital, several of our gynecologists provide an approach to treatment that intentionally uses conventional medical treatments alongside other practices (eg. nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, massage, acupuncture, energy work, etc.) to assist women with their healthcare needs.
Evidence supports the fact that acupuncture, lifestyle, and nutritional guidance can be used effectively for the treatment of many gynecological problems. One of our board certified gynecologists is licensed in acupuncture; another is board certified in clinical nutrition.
Mental health and emotional well-being can be addressed with your gynecologist. Gynecologists can recommend and provide local referrals to psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers.
