Holistic health care and medicine are growing in popularity in the United States, with nearly a third of Americans turning to alternative and natural treatments in addition to classic medical care.

If you want to learn more, call Dr. Kothandaraman to book your consultation or schedule your appointment online.
Much like standard gynecology, holistic gynecology is a branch of medicine that treats conditions and illnesses specific to women, particularly those associated with the reproductive system.
Where holistic gynecology differs from standard gynecology is in Dr. Kothandaraman’s integrative approach to treatment: All aspects of your health, from your body to your mental well-being, are factored into your treatment plan.
At heart, integrative care merges natural medicine and healing principles with the traditional expertise of Dr. Kothandaraman. Together, you two work in tandem to identify areas of health improvement that are unique to your needs and choose a treatment plan based on natural, noninvasive procedures.
You might think of integrative care as a more natural approach to “treating the patient, not the disease.”
To this end, you and Dr. Kothandaraman work together to live healthier in mind, body, and spirit, all to prevent illness from occurring in the first place, whenever possible.
Calling upon her years of experience, Dr. Kothandaraman offers several services that target areas of your life that can influence your gynecological health:
Maintaining a healthy diet full of the vitamins and nutrients you need is especially crucial during pregnancy. For example, it's recommended that you receive 400 micrograms of folic acid daily to prevent major congenital disabilities.
Certain vitamin and mineral supplements can help prevent symptoms associated with menopause and can also help fill in dietary gaps during pregnancy.
The apathy you feel during post-partum depression and menopause can cause you to make decisions that only leave you feeling worse. Dr. Kothandaraman can help you make positive changes that steer you toward a healthier state of being.
Sometimes, simple changes to your diet or exercise routine under the supervision of Dr. Kothandaraman are enough to improve your gynecological health. With her expert guidance, you can work toward living a healthier life.
