Chronic Pelvic Pain - A Functional Nutrition Approach
Chronic pelvic pain, while a common condition for women, is notoriously difficult to address. With a background as a pelvic and women's health specialist physical therapist, and having owned a clinical nutrition and health coaching practice for the past 6 years, Jessica Drummond brings a unique integrative approach to healing for women with complex pelvic pain conditions.
In this presentation, Jessica will discuss how focusing on root cause optimization of digestive function, reducing systemic inflammation, naturally balancing the endocrine system using food, lifestyle and supplements, downtraining the nervous system, and addressing musculoskeletal mobility, stability, and movement can support long term relief for women with chronic pelvic pain.
Since the pelvic bowl houses the digestive, reproductive, nervous, circulatory, and musculoskeletal systems, it is the ideal place to take a functional approach to whole woman healing. In this presentation, you will learn the specifics of applying this perspective to vulvodynia, menstrual pain, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, and other causes of pelvic and sexual pain.
