HERE TO HELP
RejuvaMed at Holmes Mill offers help to those struggling with NHS HRT shortages, with personally tailored bioidentical HRT
With the NHS now struggling to provide routine treatments, and in particular to supply the vital HRT needed by women going through the menopause, RejuvaMed Health & Wellness in Clitheroe can help.
Experienced local GP Dr Helen McKeating is part of the team and specialises in women’s health and gynaecology.
RejuvaMed was the first clinic in Lancashire to introduce Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), a natural, individually tailored and effective alternative to current NHS HRT treatments.
Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as naturally occurring hormones, which diminish as we age. These can benefit patients who have a hormone imbalance, particularly if they have tried other hormonal medications on the NHS, including HRT, and experienced unwanted side effects.
After an initial consultation, Dr Helen will carry out blood tests to pinpoint specific issues and then prescribe a personalised treatment plan that includes a tailor-made hormone prescription. The medicines are then delivered to your home address.
Bioidentical HRT can give relief from a wide range of pre-menopausal and menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood changes, weight gain and sleep issues. It can also help treat other hormonal imbalances such as menstrual problems, post-natal depression, osteoporosis and endometriosis.
The treatment plan includes regular follow ups and monitoring to ensure optimum results.
Prices for Bioidentical HRT start at £50 for a short fact-finding consultation.
Dr Helen also offers treatment for another common, potentially embarrassing and inconvenient condition. She explains: “Many women experience ‘waterworks’ symptoms which include what we call stress or urge incontinence. This means they have ‘oops! moments’ when coughing, laughing or sneezing, or need to suddenly rush to the toilet. It is thought that up to 60 per cent of women experience such symptoms.
“There is limited help that can be offered for such problems by the NHS and often women are ashamed and afraid to seek medical care. But now RejuvaMed offers a high-tech treatment which can quickly help solve those problems.”
The clinic has now treated many patients using the 3D-Vjuve, which is the latest addition to 3D’s range of laser systems. The 3D-Vjuve offers an effective vaginal tightening treatment, working in a minimally invasive way to manage a range of post-childbirth and peri-menopausal issues, from incontinence to vaginal atrophy (thinning and inflammation of the vaginal wall) and dryness. There is increasing research evidence that it can also improve sexual function.
After an initial consultation to assess suitability, Dr Helen uses the 3D-Vjuve to treat these embarrassing and often limiting conditions in a fast, painless and highly effective way, with little or no downtime.
A consultation with Dr Helen is £50, with each subsequent treatment priced at £550, or just £1400 for the recommended course of three sessions.
