Revolutionizing Women’s Health: Bridging the Gap

Modern medicine has come so far, yet women are still being left behind. 1 in 10 women suffer from Endometriosis, 1 in 10 have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, and 1 in 5 have painful periods that interfere with their daily lives. The current standard of care in women's health relies on synthetic hormones and hysterectomies as a panacea to fix all problems, yet this practice is neglecting to treat the root cause. Ignoring the root cause can lead to severe problems for patients in the future, such as infertility and autoimmune disorders. This panel will investigate the ways in which the current standard of care is failing women, and suggest alternative ways in which we can give women the health care they deserve by combining the best of allopathic and holistic health practices.
