PMS appointment process in San Diego

PMS is a condition that many women experience during the luteal phase of their menstrual cycle, otherwise known as the two weeks leading up to menses. At Tulsi Wellness Center in San Diego, our Doctors are expertly trained to help manage and treat signs of PMS.

During your initial visit, our doctors will thoroughly explore your history and get to know the real you so that they understand your symptoms and health in its entirety. This will help us find answers and get to the root cause of your symptoms, no matter how complex it may be.

More importantly, we will help you get in tune with your own body so you understand how to confidently take charge of your own health and create lasting solutions for a healthier life.

After this initial intake, typically lab work will be ordered. We take a naturopathic, functional approach to blood work analysis that allows us as providers to explore hormone issues in its entirety with our patients. We utilize advanced functional labs such as the Dutch Hormone Test, Gut microbiome analysis, micronutrient panels, or even environmental toxins screening to truly get to the root cause, which may be lifestyle, hormonal, due to microbiome imbalances, and much more.

Ultimately, we focus on optimizing your unique physiology so that we can then facilitate the natural healing process of the body, which is what it does best! Long gone are the days of prescribing oral contraceptive pills for every female patient or saying your labs are "normal" despite your symptoms persisting.

These tests take a comprehensive look into hormone metabolism and pathways in more detail compared to the conventional approach, which can help complete the picture for PMS. Typically, results are returned to our office in 1-2 days and our doctors can then put together a treatment plan for you.

Once all the information is obtained this is when the real work begins. Our doctors will analyze your history and laboratory results to tailor a program specific for you. Each patient is unique, and we want to treat you as such. Programs often include:

  • Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
