Hormone Replacement FAQ Part 2

My patient’s most frequently asked questions about bioidentical hormone replacement

Episode 149 of the BioBalance Healthcast is the second in a series of two programs where we look at the most frequently asked questions we hear in my hormone replacement practice. Issues we cover in this show include the reasons for getting hormones replaced, the cost of hormone replacement, the process of getting them replaced, recovery after the pellet insertion, related side effects, frequency of treatment and the outcome in regards to returning overall health and bodies back to a younger state.

Brett Newcomb and I discuss the complicated process of translating symptoms and lab tests into a good and effective treatment plan. I rely on my 30 years of experience as a gynecologist in treating women’s hormones and 11 years specializing and concentrating only on hormone deficiencies associated with aging. This experience gives me a great advantage over the casual doctor who wants to dabble in hormone replacement.

My treatment plans not only treat the ovarian hormones, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, they also treat thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary hormone imbalances; a complicated task that leads to effective treatment. No other doctors in my area of practice has the experience and provides the comprehensive care that we offer at BioBalance Health.

In my pracctice I seek a relationship with my patients that is knowing and healing. I have trained my nurses and nurse practitioners to provide the care I developed and perfected so they can be my hands and eyes while I am treating other patients. Each of them are excellent and very experienced in every area of bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy.

In my role as Medical Directory at BioBalance Health, I review every patient’s blood lab and then personally consult with the nurse practitioners in cases wheree patient have unusual symptoms. Hormone therapy is not a mass production industry. I serve my patients by treating each one individually.

In this podcast, Brett and I talk about the training and the experience that has allowed me to become one of the preiminent hormone replacement specialists in the country. We discuss the frequency and cost of treatments of HRT and the adjustment curve for the body responding to replenishment of youthful levels of testosterone and other hormones. Our conversation about restoration of the libido will be of particular interest to those of you who have concerns or issues about your sex drive and the way it works now in your life. We want to restore you to the patterns of your own life.
