Patricia chooses hormone balancing for optimum health

Never Give Up Hope...

The hammer dropped for Patricia when, aged 72, doctors detected a small tumor under her left breast after a routine mammogram.  Following surgery she faced the frightening prospect of chemotherapy and the allied effects of a declining auto-immune system.  

“My immune system was shot to hell and I felt I had to get myself back up again,” said Patricia.

Doctors said she had no choice but to undergo radiation therapy. Patricia, after much soul searching and careful investigation of alternatives was not convinced.

“When they discovered I had cancer, there was a  bit of anger which made me want to fight it.     ‘Oh my god’, I thought,  I really have to look at my life and evaluate what I want from it and what I would like to have happen with the short time I have left.’

After surgery thought carefully about what life was about, what did she want from it and what could she give back with the years she had left.

Like a good patient, I listened to the doctors, had the surgery but then I began to question all the protocols that went along with  radiation treatment and what chemo would  do to me over the long run.”

The doctors explained that chemotherapy should be the ONLY course of action since it could guarantee her an extra 5-10 years of life.

“However, when I asked them if that would give me QUALITY of life, they could not speak to that at all because they don’t know,” said Patricia.

Patricia decided to educate herself, reading as much online material she could get her hands from established institutions such as the Cleveland Clinic.  

Patrica Tries Hormone Balancing Program

 I choose life!

“I not only read the horror stories, but good medical journals and reports upon which it dawned on me that I wanted to live my life in the best health that I could possibly have, because that would bring me the freedom to do all the things that I wanted to do including travel, enjoy my family and do other activities such as Golf and Biking.”

Patricia looked long and hard at alternative preventive options, including Bio-Identical  Hormone Replacement Therapy.    She educated herself on Progesterone and Estrogen treatment, concluding that hormone balancing would be a viable route to improve the quality of her life.

Hormones can generally be described as special chemicals, or messengers, that tell other parts of the body when and how to work. The are responsible for just about everything that happens in your body and influence sex, desire, brain function, mood, growth, breakdown of food and overall energy levels.   

Surgery and chemotherapy can disrupt these functions, causing imbalance which results in a host of health issues. Add in the aging process and this is an extremely complex area which requires a customized and careful approach by a medical doctor and his team.

The question was, Patricia thought,  which doctor and clinic to guide her on this path considering her medical background?

The Big Decision

“It was a big decision for me because after talking to my  surgeon, oncologist and gynecologist it became clear that the general consensus was that post-surgery there should be no Estrogen intake at all. Yet, I knew, that for me to be a healthy, vibrant woman I needed Estrogen in my body. It was that important to me,” said Patricia.

Patricia realized that although one should defer to the expert opinions of the medical community, she should never stop questioning their methods and whether it was the right path for her to take.

“In fact, my surgeon after several conversations agreed that the path I wanted to explore was probably the RIGHT thing for myself. He said that if the cancer returned we would just go back, cut it out and I would continue with the rest of my life.”

At was at this point, she approached Dr. Coleman for a Comprehensive Medical Assessment (CMA) or 100 Point Health Score to construct a  long-term flight path for hormone balancing based on her unique circumstances.

“Dr. Coleman understood immediately that I needed to rebuild my auto immune system which was still in shock from the previous surgery.   I also wanted to pursue a healthier lifestyle and get the most out of life.   My energy came  back along with a feeling of wellness.”

Dr. Coleman developed a customized therapy program that administered the  safest, lowest dosage and  combination of hormones to elevate Patricia’s overall wealth while also minimizing the risk of cancer reemerging in her body.

"I incorporated  progesterone treatment which has well-known protective elements for the breast area.  Additionally, I added in Estriol, or Estrogen #3, which is extremely safe but allows Patricia to feel those qualities that make her a woman.  The hormone combinations used so far have generated remarkable results with no problems."

“Importantly, I decided not to put her back on Estrodial which has been known to cause breast problems in certain cases.  We carefully monitored her hormone levels, using blood and saliva,  looking out for  Estrogen #1, Estrol, which can have adverse affects on the breast area and is even worse than Estrogen #2. None has been detected thus far.”

The Quality of Life

“Instead of dealing with the 5-10 years of side-effects that come from drugs related to chemotherapy, I now can live with a high quality of life and feel wonderful every day.  I would also like to stress that I would never give up the monitoring mentioned above by Dr. Coleman - I think it's imperative. ”

“I was very fortunate to meet and work with Dr. Coleman and his Hormone Clinic staff in Bonita Springs, who have given me back my good health, vibrancy - a fantastic hormonal balance! Everyday is now a joy because my health now allows me to enjoy all of things important in my life, including golfing, biking, reading, socializing, playing games, traveling, plays, concerts and spending time with my grand children.”

“I would urge anyone to find their way - their path - to a healthy vibrant fun-filled life with Dr. Coleman and MedicalMasters.org. Live the rest of your life to the fullest with the people you love and care about” said Patricia.

“I needed to work with professional people who could make this happen and would never have reached this point in my journey without Dr. Coleman’s help. 

We need doctors to advise us of new developing sciences which could possibly help us and then we need to think about it, research it, and make a decision based on their input.  In my case, the answer was yes and I am very comfortable with that decision.”

Maryclaire, age 64, had been struggling for years with debilitating knee pain in both knees. The pain has been causing a limp and severely restricting her basic movements, such as walking and climbing stairs. Since the onset of pain, she has not been able to exercise, and is gaining weight as a result. As a former ballet dancer, she was previously a very active person and one who desperately wanted to enjoy some of the simple pleasures in life, pain free.

After Doctors offered No Hope, other than Permanent Surgery with a Total Knee Replacement, with all of its risks, she decided to explore alternative treatments, with MedicalMasters.org in Bonita Springs, FL.

After a Comprehensive Medical Exam, or what is called a 100-Point Health Check Up, Dr. Steve Coleman D.O., confirmed that she would be a good candidate for same-day stem cell treatment. Although she was a bit afraid of the procedure, she made the courageous decision to try something different, something more than just a traditional, invasive surgery.

The 3 hour, Level 1 procedure (No general anesthetic, done under sterile conditions), involves the pain free harvest of her very own cellular material, including PRP from Blood, Her Own Fat Cells, and Bone Marrow. Her own cells are then re-injected back into both knees, with a very advanced technique, specific to Prolotherapy Trained Physicians.

No manipulation of her Native Cells was performed. No Drugs, other than anticoagulants and anesthetics were used.
While results will differ from patient to patient, most people treated by Dr. Coleman have significantly positive results within one to three weeks. In the short term, significant worsening of pain, is quite normal but not universal.

Longer term results, over six to nine months, generally offer even greater mobility and pain reductions for patients undergoing stem cell therapy.

“I am ecstatic! I am walking perfectly and pain free just two weeks or so after the initial procedures. My left knee has virtually no symptoms at all, while my right has some slight discomfort but is dramatically improved. It’s quite incredible,” said Maryclair.

“If we are able to help patients have less pain, and perform activities of daily living with less limitations, that is a Win-Win situation, for one human being.

“If we can do all that while lessening surgical risks, and reducing massive costs to the healthcare system, it is a Triple Win for patients and society”.

“In Maryclaire’s case I am extremely grateful, that her results are ahead of schedule, and I hope to help keep her dancing for years to come,” said Dr. Coleman.

We have a number of courageous patients who enter our Clinic every day including Bobby, a 68-year old prostrate cancer survivor who was experiencing pain in his right knee due to two previous meniscus tears.   Follow-up knee surgery had not helped, leaving him with nagging pain that was impacting some of his favorite activities including long walks which he used to help regulate his weight.   After investigating both Stem CellTherapy and PRP he decided to undergo Prolotherapy with Dr. Coleman at MedicalMasters.Org.

As the United States approaches 1 million new knee replacement surgeries per year, we have to ask if this is always necessary?

Some studies suggest that less than one-third of all surgeries are effective and would perhaps have been better handled using alternatives, including Stem Cell Therapy.

The root cause for knee joint pain is usually rooted in a previous sports injury (or something similar) and/or the increasing onset of osteoarthritis.

However, as long as the knee damage is not yet bone-on-bone, Stem Cell Therapy offers some life-changing alternatives to knee replacement surgery.

Once a patient undergoes our 100-Point Health Score we can determine if Stem Cells along with additional Prolotherapy and PRP treatment could offer you some relief. These are all Level 3, FDA-compliant, same-day procedures that we believe offer long-term options for new patients.

Man-Hormone-Therapy-1200x900.jpg

Our latest case study focuses on an issue that affects millions of Americans: sleep deprivation. Henry, a 63-year old spent over five years suffering from sleepless nights, causing him to become grumpy, at times angry, and continually frustrated that his condition was not getting any better. It was also affecting his sex drive and other normal activities.

Our 100-Point Health Score revealed that he was waking up nearly every hour with the strange sensation that he needed to urinate. He would stumble to the bathroom and urinate only a tiny amount. He would empty his bladder and go straight back to bed, only to repeat the process several times during the evening. This happened each and every night.

After careful review it was determined that there were serious underlying issues contributing to the sleep disorder, including neuropathy.   Ultimately he became a candidate for the testosterone pellet therapy and the results were positive and long-lasting.

Most of the time I’m pretty upbeat with a good sense of humor, but once my hormones go out of synch I’m like a different person,” said Marie.  Does this sound familiar to other middle-aged woman faced with the daily demands of professional life, raising a family, pleasing her husband and still finding time to enjoy healthy activities such as exercise and a healthy diet?

Marie visited our regenerative medicine clinic to help get some balance back in her life.   After an extensive 360-degree patient exam, we determined she would be an ideal candidate for bio identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) , and in particular,  testosterone pellet  therapy.    This is a medically guided program that uses a proprietary 100-point health score to determine your physiological, physical, mental and hormone equilibrium levels followed by a customized treatment plan to deliver powerful, long lasting results.

Marie, at times, was suffering from depression: “I just went into my shell and felt down.”  She knew she was not getting the best out of her life and needed a lift.

After 28 days the results were dramatic. In fact,  she noticed an immediate boost within 48 hours of treatment.    Friends and Family immediately noticed the change and she now feels her life is back on track, feeling years younger. What’s so heartening about this story, is it’s just the beginning. With careful,  medically-guided treatment and counseling, Marie should notice even more positive gains as her body adapts and re-balances female estrogen and testosterone levels.

Marie decided to share her story with you below.  “I am the poster child for female hormone treatment. I continually preach to woman how important it is to balance your hormones.”
