What does True Balance stand for and what makes True Balance BHRT medical staff experts? 

All hormones operate in a lined and co-operative fashion that has been compared to the web of a spider. No change in levels of one hormone goes unnoticed by the entire system. Too often conventional medical treatments have looked at one or two hormones in isolation. This approach often fails to optimize the function of the entire system.

Safety is a basic guiding principle to the True Balance Clinics. Replacement with the least amount of hormones to effect symptom relief minimizes the chance of untoward side effects. Hormone levels are obtained before and upon treatment to accomplish this goal.

Your BHRT consultant has done extensive training in this area. All practitioners are under the direct supervision of a gynecologist when starting. BHRT conference attendance is necessary, as is ongoing education in this rapidly evolving area. Quality and safety of treatment are the primary principles which guide our clinical practices.
