Life After Hysterectomy

Undergoing a hysterectomy is a significant event in a woman's life, with physical and emotional aspects that need careful attention during recovery.


As a naturopathic doctor, I’m dedicated to supporting women through this transition, focusing on holistic healing and balance.


Here’s how naturopathic support can make a difference post-hysterectomy:


    Hormonal Balance

    After a hysterectomy, especially if the ovaries are removed, hormonal imbalances can occur. Natural therapies like phytoestrogens and herbal adaptogens can help manage symptoms of menopause and support hormonal health.


    Nutritional Support

    Optimal nutrition is crucial for healing. A diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants supports tissue repair and overall well-being. Supplements such as vitamin C, zinc, and B-vitamins may also be recommended to aid in recovery.


    Emotional Well-being

    The emotional impact of a hysterectomy is significant. Techniques such as counseling, mindfulness, and stress management can be vital components of your care plan, helping to address feelings of loss or identity shifts that may occur.


    Physical Recovery

    Gentle exercise, tailored to your recovery stage, can help strengthen your body and improve mood. Modalities like acupuncture and massage can also promote healing and relieve pain.


    Gut Health

    Post-surgery antibiotics and medications can disrupt your gut microbiome. Probiotics and prebiotic-rich foods can help restore gut health, enhancing digestion and nutrient absorption.
