Common treatments for many gynecological conditions unfortunately focus on the suppression of abnormal function. Additionally, current treatments for infertility focus on the bypassing of abnormal function. These methods do not often last and rarely address the underlying problem.
At RHM, our goal is always to restore function.
We achieve this by focusing on three main areas: Reproductive Endocrinology, Reproductive Physiology and Reproductive Immunology. Besides following major medical societal guidelines, our restorative medical protocols are largely derived from FEMM/RHRI, CrMS/NaProTechnology and Marquette University.
PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Au-then-tic (adjective). Of undisputed origin; genuine.
At RHM, we believe that authentic gynecological care centers primarily on the careful study of a woman's cyclical observations. What causes this daily variation is a delicate interplay of physiology, endocrinology (hormones) and your immune system to bring about ovulation. A disruption of this balance leads to abnormal ovulation and a wide variety of reproductive health issues. Therefore, rather than simply treating symptoms, we work cooperatively with our patients to treat the root cause of the problem. We believe that this to be in accordance with the principles of the Hippocratic Oath, where all physicians are called to follow.

It is not uncommon for women to experience a range of gynecological symptoms throughout her reproductive life, puberty through menopause. Common symptoms can include abnormal weight change, painful or irregular cycles, acne, and mood swings. RHM medical protocols respond to symptoms by identifying and treating the root causes. RHM providers encourage patients to schedule a consultation as soon as symptoms arise. Additionally, RHM provides routine care such as annual physicals, pap smears, and STD testing.
Miscarriage and infertility can also indicate hormonal dysfunction. RHM providers work with our patients to closely monitor ovulation and her hormone levels. RHM treatment plans for fertility and reproductive health always identify and target root causes of dysfunction. Treatment works to boost and supplement where needed so that the body can function properly and independently in the goal to achieve pregnancy.
OVULATION AS A SIGN OF HEALTH
Reproductive biomarkers provide key insight to RHM medical providers. RHM prioritizes ovulation as a key indicator to healthy hormone function. Accurate charting information contributes valuable information to the development of targeted and precise treatment plans. To equip our patients, RHM provides Charting Education consultations. Furthermore, charting empowers our patients to understand their health so that they can be informed agents in their health decisions.
