In addition to providing support for general adult health conditions, the doctors at Tara Natural Medicine also provide care specific to women’s needs. These include well-woman exams (breast exam and pap smear), and treatment for abnormal pap smears, gynecological infections, fertility issues, menstrual disorders, and menopausal symptoms.
Dr. Levy and Dr. Korza both perform escharotic treatments as part of their comprehensive approach to treating cervical dysplasia and abnormal pap smears. The escharotic treatment is an in-office procedure that encourages a gentle sloughing of abnormal, damaged cervical cells using natural enzymes and herbs and supports the re-growth of healthy tissue. Treatments take place twice weekly for 4-6 weeks, depending on the recommendation of your doctor.
The doctors also are able to prescribe hormones when necessary for balancing hormones, menopausal complaints, or birth control. Dr. Levy, Dr. Lutrin and Dr. Korza are experts in using bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) to support both women and men in restoring optimal hormone balance. Bio-identical hormones are compounded uniquely for each individual, and provide hormones that are identical in structure to those found in the human body. In order to restore optimal function to the body, bio-identical hormones may be prescribed for a short or longer period of time.
In addition to using bio-identical hormones, the doctors also use bio-identical thyroid hormones (armour thyroid or naturethroid) in their treatment of thyroid dysfunction.
