I came upon an article originally published by the Washington Post yesterday titled “Pregnancy getting attention it’s due”, Women's health no copyright infringement is intendedwhich talks about how little research is done into pregnancy than into much less common conditions.

Reading this reminded me of when doctors downplay women’s health concerns, and the disparities between how women and men are treated in medical settings.

It has been my experience working as a clinical social worker that mind/body strategies and techniques are effective ways of managing a wide array of physiological and psychological challenges.

Dr. Alice Domar, who has established the first ever Mind/Body Center for Women’s Health, as well as the very first Mind/Body Program for Fertility states: “women’s minds must be treated along with their bodies”; that this is essential to treatment success, no matter what the medical condition is.

No matter what is causing distress and/or pain –stress, cancer, autoimmune disorders, insomnia, anxiety and depression-when we attend to our minds as well as our body, we can feel better, as well as cope better with our condition on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. I have included a link to a video of Dr. Alice Domar here:

If you would like to explore more about mind/body medicine, I am available in both the Madison Park and West Seattle offices for a 30-minute consultation at no charge.

Testimonial from a recent “Graduate”: I wanted to share with you the good news that I am pregnant! I just entered into the second trimester and everything is looking great! You and your yoga class was so incredibly helpful to me. It connected me to my body in new ways that really helped me heal from my miscarriages and prepare my body for future pregnancies. It also introduced me to wonderful supportive people that have been a huge part of my coping during this journey. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and stories with me. I am very grateful.
