Dr. Eden Fromberg

Dr. Eden Fromberg is the Founder and Director of Holistic Gynecology New York, a sanctuary for truly holistic women's health throughout the life cycle where personalized, innovative care cultivates wellness, activates the healing process, and unravels chronic and complex gynecological, hormonal, painful, structural and autoimmune issues. As a Board Certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist who is also Board Certified in Integrative Holistic Medicine, Dr. Eden Fromberg is fully trained, credentialed, and experienced in both traditional and holistic medical theory and practice. A visit with Dr. Eden Fromberg reaches beyond the typical GYN office visit to truly delve into any issues of concern and keep patients healthy for years to come, including the essential underlying nutritional, metabolic, hormonal, structural, functional, and emotional aspects of women’s health. Generous time and focused attention are devoted, with the goal of providing comprehensive, meticulous, personalized, truly holistic care.

 

Dr. Fromberg’s extensive and diverse background, years of clinical experience, dedication to caring well for her patients, and active interest in current research and innovation give her the opportunity to sort out complex issues and develop customized treatment plans incorporating a multifaceted range and depth of biologically intelligent options to meet her patients' needs. Patients are given the information, time, resources, and ongoing support that they need to achieve true health and well being in any or all aspects of their lives.

 

In addition to her expertise in integrative fertility, pregnancy, and birth, Dr. Fromberg applies a structural and functional holistic approach to addressing all areas of gynecology, and women’s health, and beyond. She creates unique, customized programs designed to encourage the body’s innate abilities and healing processes to flourish, addressing underlying causes and prevention in addition to symptoms. Nutrition, movement, meaningful information, cutting edge research, alternative perspectives, and a range of potential options offer Dr. Fromberg’s patients the care, relief, and support they need. Dr. Fromberg's willingness to take the time and thought to seek out and treat the root causes underlying symptoms, and her ability to offer her patients meaningful information and alternative perspectives offer opportunities to avoid the potential side effects and risks of pharmaceutical medications, synthetic hormones, and surgery. Dr. Fromberg takes a special interest in the complex areas of female pain, pelvic floor and sexual dysfunction from an integrative perspective. She helps women throughout the life cycle achieve optimal hormonal health, and is a bioidentical hormone expert. She helps women with chronic pain, inflammatory, stress related, and autoimmune conditions regain structural and functional health.

 

Dr. Fromberg’s expertise and ongoing commitment to keeping abreast of current research and clinical updates allows her to treat a range and depth of women’s health conditions. She listens carefully with an open mind and broad perspective, thinks outside the box, and is adept at diagnosing and sorting out complex problems that may be dismissed or not adequately addressed by conventional gynecological and medical care.

 

 

Dr. Fromberg is dedicated to caring well for her patients, and she provides detailed, personalized guidance in making informed choices with compassion and respect for each woman’s personal orientation and individual needs. Even problems that may seem straightforward are handled thoroughly, gently, and with kindness and care. Although wellness, prevention, and nutrition are emphasized, conventional care and medications remain options for women who desire it, or when alternatives do not fully address their needs in the context of our complex, modern lives.

Fromberg, DO,  FACOOG, ABIHM is an osteopathic physician, Board Certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology by the American Osteopathic Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (1999) and Board Certified in Integrative & Holistic Medicine by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine (2003).

Early influences

Born by natural childbirth in Brooklyn, New York in 1965, Dr. Fromberg was fully breastfed, weaned to a naturopathic diet, and raised as a third generation vegetarian. In the 1950s, Dr. Fromberg’s grandparents owned and operated Hygiology Country Club, an organic vegetarian retreat in Rhinebeck, New York - only a few miles from the site of today’s Omega Institute – where her parents met and married. Dr. Fromberg grew up with an awareness of the wholeness of all things and the goodness within people. Her research and experience with various diets, cultures, and healing traditions of the world confirms the importance of personalized nutrition and medicine to support the body through illness, childbirth, stress, and the cycle of life.

Education and training

Dr. Fromberg began studying nutrition, yoga, midwifery and botanical medicine at Oberlin College, graduating with a B.A. in Biology in 1985. While volunteering at the Santa Cruz Women's Health Center and apprenticing with midwives and bodyworkers, Eden completed a premed program at University of California, Santa Cruz, then worked at Planned Parenthood and the legendary midwife-run Booth Maternity Hospital in Philadelphia prior to attending medical school. She graduated from Southeastern University of the Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1991, and completed her residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1995. Following graduation, Dr. Fromberg worked at the Catskill Women's Health Center in the Hudson Valley, collaborating with midwives and seeing patients in vintage farmhouse offices.

International childbirth work, birth center and publications

In 1997 and ever since, Dr. Fromberg has worked intimately as an obstetrical consultant and midwifery educator with internationally renowned midwife, Robin Lim, CNN Hero of the Year 2011, and Bumi Sehat Foundation. With Robin Lim, Dr. Fromberg teaches Sustainable Childbirth workshops. Dr. Fromberg has also worked with Birth India, and continues to work collaboratively with midwives and birth centers internationally. She wrote the forward to Eating for Two: Recipes for Pregnant & Breastfeeding Women by Robin Lim, and was an assistant researcher for Obat Asli Bali: The Synthesis of Traditional Herbal Medicine & Modern Medicine in Bali, Indonesia (Indonesian Institute of Sciences, Udayana University, Denpasar, Bali), in addition to professional publications. She appeared in the film, The Business of Being Born, and in the Pregnancy Health Guru series on Fetal Development. Dr. Fromberg has discussed various childbirth controversies and co-taught prenatal and childbirth preparation classes with friend and colleague, midwife Ina May Gaskin. Before opening her independent practice in New York City, Dr. Fromberg was an integral contributor to opening and operating the original Birth Center at Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, New York.

Private OB/GYN practice

In 2005, Dr. Fromberg established her independent holistic and integrative gynecology practice as a sanctuary for truly holistic women's health care dedicated to sorting out complex issues and offering a range and depth of options and treatments to meet her patients' needs while developing further diverse expertise including bioidentical hormones, alternative therapies, integrative fertility, female pain, sexual dysfunction, adrenal fatigue, and chronic inflammatory and autoimmune illness in women.

Yoga and somatic movement

Studying yoga since 1983, Dr. Fromberg has extensive training and experience in various yoga styles and methodologies, while developing her own approach. Dr. Fromberg taught yoga on road trips and concert tours during college, and her in-depth studies of yoga began in 1997 when Alex Auder opened the original Hudson Valley Yoga in Tivoli, NY. She completed Forrest Yoga teacher training there in 2003 while also studying intensively at the Lafayette Street Jivamukti and with Alison West at her original Broome Street loft, then discovering Kula. With Mia Borgatta, who began to develop the Ma Yoga Prenatal method at Jivamukti, Dr. Fromberg founded Lila Yoga, Dharma & Wellness, a pioneering studio on the Bowery, NYC from 2003-2016. Lila Wellness is now a virtual studio hosting women's wellness education and yoga and movement programs and trainings for women and professionals internationally. Among workshops and trainings Dr. Fromberg produced at her studio over the years include her most influential friends, colleagues, and teachers, including Liz Koch of Core Awareness, Sue Hitzmann of MELT Method, Jill Miller of Yoga Tune Up, Glenn Black Yoga & Bodytuning, Katy Bowman of Nutritious Movement, NYC’s first Forrest Yoga Teacher Training with Ana Forrest (2005), and Robin Becker of Continuum. Studying closely with Nevine Michaan and Abbie Galvin at Katonah Yoga since the Chelsea studio first opened in 2011, Dr. Fromberg helped Abbie coordinate the Katonah Yoga Bowery studio in an adjacent Bowery loft before closing Lila’s studio space in 2016. Dr. Fromberg teaches anatomy, physiology, prenatal yoga, fertility and women’s yoga, and biointelligent alignment for yoga and prenatal yoga teacher trainings, and teaches workshops, retreats, and trainings incorporating advanced women's yoga practices and somatic movement education. She is a Continuum Wellsprings practitioner, having also studied directly with Emilie Conrad, and is completing a master's degree in Dance and Somatic Well Being via the University of Central Lancashire, UK and Mary Abrams. In 2016, Dr. Fromberg conceived and co-teaches the popular, 2-day, professional level course, The Female Pelvis in the Cycles of Life with structural integration pioneer and Anatomy Trains author, Tom Myers.

Fascia and connective tissue

Dr. Fromberg is a Founding Member of the Fascia Research Society, and connective tissue insights are integral to her holistic medical perspective and treatment concepts. As an osteopathic physician, her foundation in understanding how the body’s structure affects its function and her studies during medical school with the Upledger Institute led her to pursue postgraduate advanced studies in manual and movement therapies, including courses in visceral manipulation via the Barral Institute and advanced urogenital manipulation training directly with Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, PT,  and with the Barral Institute’s pelvic and women’s health specialist, Gail Wetlzer, PT. As Dr. Fromberg has been phasing out surgery in favor of manual and movement therapies in her holistic OB/GYN practice, her extensive anatomical knowledge and meticulous surgical skills now inform her application of specific hands on techniques that improve and restore connection and communication in organ and tissue relationships, having the potential to resolve pain and physiological issues without pharmaceutical drugs or surgery, and improving healing after injury or surgery. Dr. Fromberg enjoys interfacing with manual and movement therapists, dancers, and innovators of all stripes, and includes Gail Wetzler and Jean-Pierre Barral of the Barral Institute, Tom Myers of Anatomy Trains, Sue Hitzmann of MELT Method, Emilie Conrad and her legacy of Continuum, Judith Aston of Aston Kinetics, Don Van Vleet, Maureen Fleming, Gil Hedley, Antonio Stecco, MD, and Hal Blatman, MD, among her influential friends, colleagues, and teacher in the field.
