Do You Really Need A Hysterectomy?

July 5, 2011

Do you experience heavy and painful periods, uterine fibroids, or migraines? Have you been diagnosed with endometriosis? If so, then chances are that you have been given two options: birth control pills or a hysterectomy. Neither of these methods addresses the underlying cause of the problem, which is hormonal imbalance.

More than 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States. In fact, hysterectomies are the second most common surgical procedure among women of reproductive age.

There are situations in which a hysterectomy is necessary, such as when cancer is in the equation. However, countless numbers of women undergo a hysterectomy for reasons such as heavy bleeding and painful periods, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and even migraines.

The logic is, we’ll just take out the offending organ and eliminate the problem altogether. Now, think about it – your body is crying out with symptoms, giving you a heads up that something’s out of balance and instead of getting to the root of the problem, what do we do? We remove the organ completely. It’s a no-brainer! Literally.

Does this make sense to you? Talk about throwing out the baby with the bath water!

Even worse, most women are not informed about the symptoms that inevitably follow a hysterectomy. At this point, many women are so sick and tired of being beat up by their monthly cycle that they don’t care what the answer is; they just want the pain to be gone.

Sure, they may not have painful periods because they lack a uterus, but now they’re automatically thrown into and experience the symptoms that go along with it such as hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, brain fog, mood swings, insomnia, low libido, etc. A hysterectomy is nothing short of surgical menopause. Anyone who tells you that there will not be repercussions for removing an entire organ is not telling the truth.

Instead of undergoing major surgery or putting a band-aid over symptoms with birth control pills that come with side effects, it’s about time we started to address what’s really going on.

These symptoms are your body’s natural way of telling you that your hormones are out of balance. When you fix the underlying cause, the symptoms are eliminated as well. It can be as simple as putting back in what’s missing with the supplementation of or .

And guess what? You get to keep your organs!

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
