Bioidentical Hormone Specialist, Dr. Bethany Klug, D.O. concentrates on a preventive medical approach that helps put an end to suffering and effects caused by adrenal fatigue, signs of early menopause, menopause, perimenopause and andropause (the male menopause).
Bioidentical hormones (BHRT) are a key part of restoring health for many men and women .The demands of 21st century life tax a great many people. BHRT can help you meet those demands.
Dr. Klug has been prescribing BHRT to Men and Women since 2003!
Energy, well-being, strength, stamina, memory, focus, quality sleep, mental health, sex drive, vaginal moisture, erectile performance, resilience in the face of stress, healthy bone and muscle mass, cardiovascular health, and healthier fat to muscle ratios are just some of the benefits–all without the side effects of conventional hormones or medications commonly used to treat theses issues. Additionally, Dr. Klug has seen improvements in fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, irregular, heavy or painful periods and Peyronies disease with BHRT.
Dr. Klug most commonly uses estriol, estradiol, estrone, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone as well as porcine (Armour) and bioidentical thyroid hormones. These hormones are necessary for optimal health, as are the compounds the body makes from them. For example, the adrenal glands use progesterone, DHEA, and pregnenolone to make the corticosteroids vital for managing physical, mental, and emotional stress, and healthy immune system activity. Many patients note reduced seasonal allergy symptoms, fewer colds and overall better coping with stressors. BHRT is critical to treating most chronic illnesses.
Dr. Klug determines your individualized hormone prescription based on your needs, history, physical exam and laboratory tests. She exclusively uses transdermal and liposomal delivery systems that avoid the risks of liver metabolism. Your indvidualized hormone prescription is custom made for you by compounding pharmacy. Dr. Klug uses several compounding pharmacies in the area for your convenience.
Dr. Klug’s regimens always include dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements and self-care techniques to maximize the effectiveness of your BHRT and address other issues, whether they are physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
I will set aside 90 minutes for the first visit to permit time to listen to my patient’s story. This way, I learn the many different factors influencing my patient’s well-being and can get to the root causes. I can’t do this in twelve, even 20 minutes. Sometimes a potential patient will ask why my appointments are longer than usual. I explain that my conventional medical training taught me to listen for symptoms then quickly order tests or write prescriptions. This model lets physicians see a large number of patients in a short amount of time. However, drugs and surgery silence symptoms, but rarely improve the underlying condition. This never made sense to me, and I sought a different approach ~ Dr. Bethany Klug, D.O.
