Functional Nutrition Treatment of Vulvodynia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Depression: A Case Report

Jessica Drummond. Integr Med (Encinitas).

Abstract

A 34-y-old pregnant woman previously diagnosed with vulvodynia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and depression used an elimination diet and nutritional supplementation-from 15 wk pregnant to 22 wk postpartum-to resolve her vulvodynia and IBS, and to reduce her use of antidepressant medication. This case demonstrates the potential usefulness of incorporating a customized functional nutritional approach to evaluate potential proinflammatory foods and nutritional insufficiencies in perinatal patients and postnatal patients.
