 NUTRITION

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” 

At TārāMD, we support this philosophy of the Greek physician Hippocrates from 2400 years ago. Food is an essential key to health, and we are thrilled to offer expert, personalized nutritional advice and plans through our practice. TārāMD’s nutrition expert, brings a combination of cutting-edge academic nutrition science, functional nutrition, and a deep understanding of the emotional drivers of our food relationships.  Some of the gynecologic and other health conditions amenable to nutritional treatment include:

  • PCOS

  • insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and diabetes
  • obesity
  • autoimmune issues

 ACUPUNCTURE

Traditional Chinese medicine, a system used for the last 5,000 years, explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or “Qi.”  Qi is believed to flow through pathways or meridians in the body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. Acupuncture has long been utilized to treat a variety of issues affecting women’s health. At TārāMD, we work with licensed acupuncturists who specialize in women’s health.  Their experience and training allow them to assist with issues such as:

  • menstrual cramps
  • menopause and hot flashes
  • infertility
  • pain
  • anxiety and depression
  • insomnia
  • overall wellbeing


 HEALTH COACHING

Getting help from a coach can have tremendous benefits for our health. Many health-related interventions, such as diet change, exercise, or developing relaxation or sleep habits, rely on us having the right mindset and sticking to our goals. Health coaching can help with just that: positive focus, the right behavioral tools, motivation, support in overcoming personal obstacles to change, and accountability. At TārāMD, you can complement your health transformation with health coaching, who will partner with you as you learn to make health a daily habit that comes naturally. 



 COMMUNITY

We believe that healthcare means more than what happens in an exam room.   Community, support, and trusted relationships make us healthier and happier. We are so excited to offer you wellness events, workshops and classes in the near future. With TārāMD, you will have the opportunity to experience meditation, yoga, medical massage, and expert-guided groups. Stay tuned for more information.
