These items include:
What is CBD Oil?
- CBD Oil – Used to help relieve chronic pain, CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of more than 100 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. If you experience chronic pain from a gynecologic or obstetrics-related condition, CBD oil may be able to help. CBD oil is produced by extracting CBD from the plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp seed oil. Despite its origin, CBD is not psychoactive. In other words, it won’t make you high like other ingredients in the cannabis herb. In fact, CBD oil doesn’t show up in random drug tests and is so safe that oral drops can be administered to children.CBD is a potent and clinically proven anti-inflammatory that affects receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in the regulation of a variety of functions including pain and immune system response. In addition to providing pain relief, CBD can be used to promote better sleeping habits, boost your immune system, and enhance skin care. It is also especially beneficial in treating neuropathy (stemming from nerve damage) in the lower extremities.
- BHRT Pellets – Women’s Personal Physicians is a certified practitioner of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to help optimize and balance hormones, as well as regulate many of the body’s key functions. BHRT involves the insertion of small pellets placed just under the skin as a means of delivering replacement hormones on a more consistent, and typically more effective, basis than creams or pills.Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy in the form of pills, the plant-derived hormones in BHRT pellets are bioidentical and, therefore, structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones. The pellets remain within the body and consistently provide the dosing the body requires.
BHRT pellets are inserted during an outpatient procedure, which usually requires less than a week of recovery time before normal activities can be resumed. Pellet therapy can help with menopause and PMS in women. Additionally, it can help treat depression, anxiety, low sex drive, osteoporosis, and heart disease, among many other conditions.
- Cord Blood – Umbilical cord blood is a biological product that is regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and approved for use in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation procedures. It is found in the blood vessels of the umbilical cord, collected after a baby is born (with permission by the mother) and after the umbilical cord is cut, and contains blood-forming stem cells. As such, it can be used in the treatment of a wide range of health conditions including blood disorders, cancers, immune disorders, and metabolic disorders.
