Learning your limits while being pregnant can be a challenge for some women that are used to having a very active lifestyle that includes frequent exercise and strenuous activities. The changes to the female body during the pregnancy can dramatically affect how a woman should exercise and eat. Otherwise the health of the baby could become an issue if the proper diet and care are not taken into consideration. At Integrative Health and Wellness Center, we understand the direct implications that can complicate the pregnancy and utilize our Functional Medicine practice to ensure the health of both the mother and child.
Functional Medicine is science based so it allows us to better help patients that are pregnant. The latest research shows us that what happens within us is connected in a complicated network or web of relationships within the body. Understanding those relationships allows us to see into the functioning of the body and work with women to create a lifestyle that they can keep active and also maintain the proper body chemistry for the unborn baby.
