Dr. Maupin discuses her treatment approach for a female menopausal patient.
The patient is a 60 year old Caucasian female. She reports that she is having difficulty staying focused and multitasking. She is menopausal but still has her ovaries and uterus. She suffers from fatigue and from lack of libido. She reports problems with mood changes and insomnia and says she must be losing her mind because she can’t remember things she ordinarily recalls as easily as she once could. She also has hot flashes and night sweats.
In this health-cast we review the various symptoms, and all of the information we get from the initial questionnaire. We think many of you 40-60 somethings will see yourself or your spouse in this clinical patient example.

More about our Training Program
Dr. Maupin receives requests from other practitioners ( Doctors and Nurse Practitioners) to have her teach them the methodology she uses when assessing and treating her patients. These doctors are interested in learning about Hormone Replacement, and training one on one with Dr. Maupin and Sullivan using Bio-identical pellets. It is more complicated than just placing estradiol or testosterone pellets in someone’s hip. We teach the doctors/NPs how to do exactly what we do and there is no franchise fee or percentage of your practice that we claim. Each step that BioBalance Health takes is vital to your health and avoiding misdiagnosis and harm from your treatment. We want those physicians who come to us for training to know the difference between us and the other guys before hand, and they definitely get the difference when they are involved in the training!
After training we have our doctors send us case studies like the one above and we email one another. They send me treatment plans and we send back what we would do differently, the doctors who come to BioBalance for training then return home and begin to practice. And they have 6 weeks to send us case studies and we return the appropriate course of treatment for the patient. Dr. Maupin responds also with a teaching critique of the proposed course of treatment.
It is our hope that both physicians and patients will find this Healthcast to be both helpful and interesting. As always, we protect the privacy of the patient and make sure that any identifiers are removed and or disguised so that it is entirely a teaching opportunity.
We also review fifteen lab tests that are standard for Dr. Maupin to obtain prior to treatment. She walks us through each of the tests and tells us why she orders them, what she looks for, and what the data tells her in relationship to this particular patient.
Our desire in presenting these Healthcasts is to make physicians who are interested in becoming anti aging specialists to understand the complexity and the importance of proceeding with training with Drs. Maupin and Sullivan. We also hope that those of you who are have symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency will come to us or one of the doctors who have had all three levels of training with us.
