With women’s lives becoming increasingly complicated and busy, it’s easy for our body and mind to get out of balance. Our Licensed Naturopathic Physicians are able to diagnose and treat medical conditions using a combination of standard medical and naturopathic approaches that are aimed at treating the root cause of the patient’s imbalances and illness. They are experienced in dealing with health issues that affect women and have helped many residents of Scottsdale, Arizona and the surrounding valley areas live happy and healthy lives.
Dr. Jesika DiCample is dedicated to supporting women`s health throughout their lives, from puberty to menopause. Below are some of the services we offer and medical conditions we treat.
Naturopathic care offers a variety of treatment options for medical conditions such as: irregular PAP test or cervical dysplasia results, uterine fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, vulvodynia, uterine prolapse, vaginitis, cystitis, frequent yeast infections, and a variety of STIs (sexually transmitted infections). We are also happy to provide PAP smears and full gynecologic exams during visits at various times throughout the year.
It’s important that all women are equipped with the knowledge and tools that will enable them to make informed decisions about birth control and their sexual health. We’ll educate you on the natural alternatives for contraception – such as optimizing fertility, tracking your menstrual cycle and identifying fertile days.
Hormone imbalance has significantly increased in the society over the past few years. This has been influenced mainly by lifestyle and diet, stress and toxin exposure in the environment. Menstrual concerns such as: irregular menstrual cycles, painful periods, abnormal uterine bleeding, PMS symptoms, heavy periods and amenorrhea (lack of menstrual periods) are caused by the imbalance of hormones in the human body. Using modalities such as lifestyle and diet and botanical medicine our practitioners will work together with you bring your body back into harmony.
The wisdom which comes with this point of transition in women’s life should be celebrated. As the hormones in your body start to change, naturopathic medicine can help in supporting the changes that you might be experiencing. Whether you’re dealing with hot flashes, hair loss, adrenal fatigue, vaginal irritation or dryness, osteoporosis, depression or mood swings or issues of sexual function, we’ll work together with you to achieve your goals for well-being and health as you enter this new stage in life.
With breast cancer rates on the rise, promoting and practicing breast health is important for all women. Whether you’re looking to work on the prevention of breast cancer prevention, are a survivor of breast cancer or you currently have breast cancer, the naturopathic medicine we provide can help you. Our practitioners also have a variety of treatment options for: nipple discharge, breast pain, fibrocystic breasts and breast cysts and lumps. We also provide patient education about breast self-examination and clinical breast-examinations.
Fertility And Pregnancy Care
Fertility is directly affected by one’s health – food sensitivities/allergies, hormonal imbalances, irregular periods, thyroid concerns and stress. Naturopathic medicine provides many treatment options and supportive therapies for couples trying to conceive or those who are experiencing fertility concerns. A comprehensive, personalized treatment plan and prenatal education classes can help you in starting your own family!
During pregnancy, our highly skilled and experienced medical practitioners will work together with you to make sure that the health of your developing baby is optimal, while also managing your maternal health in a natural and gentle way. We can provide support for many conditions including: nausea and vomiting, fatigue, sleep concerns, constipation, acid reflux, high blood pressure, blood sugar dysregulation and muscle cramps.
Postpartum Support And Breastfeeding Services
The moment a baby is born, the mother is also born. Approximately 70 percent to 80 percent of all new mothers experience some mood swings or negative feelings after giving birth to their baby. Mood disorders such as postpartum depression (PPD) can occur in the weeks following the delivery – so please know that you’re not alone. The naturopathic support services that we offer can help you in many different ways.
Most women also receive conflicting and contradictory advice about how they are supposed to breastfeed their baby – it isn’t as simple as some people make it out to be. We will use a compassionate approach to support you in navigating the challenging times so that you can overcome issues with: milk supply, nipple pain, latch mechanics, food introduction and reading the early feeding cues. Assisting your baby to get the best possible start in life, while also empowering you to achieve your breastfeeding goals is our priority!
