DeRosa Medical expanding to East Valley to help women with hormonal problems August 21, 2012

Women of all ages, from their twenties through their eighties, can experience hormonal problems. Younger women can be affected by the use of birth control pills, antidepressants and other medications. And most women will experience hormonal deficiencies from the time they begin menopause (typically in their thirties and forties) through and beyond post-menopause. That’s a long time spent being ill.
Most doctors either don’t diagnose hormonal issues properly, or accept them as a normal stage of life causing minor discomfort such as temporary hot flashes and sleep problems. But these imbalances and hormonal deficiencies lead to serious, debilitating health issues – everything from extreme fatigue, chronic aches and pains, sleep disorders and premature aging to pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, strokes and heart attacks.
Dr. Angela DeRosa, founder of DeRosa Medical, has devoted her life to the serious issue of women’s hormone health, and she’s bringing her expertise to Chandler, Ariz., starting Sept. 17 with a new office at 1727 Frye Road, Suite 120, in the Halstead Medical Plaza. She will practice one day a week, and a well-trained, experienced physician assistant will see patients full-time Monday through Friday. Though the practice began with a focus on women’s health, it has expanded to serve a large number of men as well.
DeRosa Medical also has offices in Scottsdale and Sedona, which attract men and women from all over – even as far afield as Alaska, Hawaii and Germany. Now, East Valley patients are ecstatic an office is coming to their neighborhood. An open house meet-and-greet is scheduled for 3-7 p.m. Sept. 20 to talk to staff, learn about services and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.
DeRosa Medical is a “one-stop shop” for most medical needs, including primary care. But Dr. DeRosa is one of few physicians in the country who fully understand the complexities of hormones and can accurately examine, diagnose and treat patients with safe, biodentical hormones.
The topic of hormones is dear to Dr. DeRosa, because she started having menopausal symptoms in her twenties and wasn’t sure what was happening. Now, she sees patients of all ages who have been misdiagnosed many times over. They’re grateful for her and her staff’s understanding, thoroughness and effective treatment.

Dr. De Rosa and East Valley patients are available for interviews in person, by telephone and on the air. To arrange, please contact Charlotte Shaff, The Media Push,

Popular hCG Diet Safe Only When Medically Supervised January 21, 2010

(Phoenix, AZ) – The hCG Ultimate Fat Burning Diet has received significant publicity based on impressive weight-loss results. However, this diet is extremely sensitive and must be monitored by a medical professional to assure desired results are achieved.

“Many unqualified businesses and on-line companies have recently advertised their version of the hCG diet,” said Dr. Ann Watwood, Medical Director at Derma Health Institute of Ahwatukee. “It’s important for consumers to realize this is a specialized program that requires the close supervision of a doctor. At Derma Health Institute, patients are seen weekly to ensure they’re achieving a positive outcome without medical complications.”

The Ultimate Fat Burning Diet involves the hormone hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, to assist in weight loss. This natural hormone is found in both men and women and increases significantly during the early stages of pregnancy. Clinically, it has been shown that using this hormone in combination with a very specific low calorie diet will stimulate the body to mobilize and burn extra fat cells for energy.

When administered properly, patients can see a weight loss average of 10-25 pounds over the three week hCG program. When used incorrectly, consumers reported feeling faint and weak, dizziness, extreme hunger attributed to improper hormone administration and no weight loss at all.

“This type of extreme diet can be dangerous if a patient is not correctly monitored,” Watwood added. “At Derma Health Institute, blood samples are taken before the diet begins to confirm there are no underlying health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism or issues with kidneys or liver that could adversely affect the patients overall health. Patients are then monitored by physicians in weekly meeting to ensure that there are no complications that could affect their health or success on the diet.”

Consumers need to remember it’s illegal to purchase any drug without a prescription from a licensed practitioner and medications sold in other countries are not held to the same safety standards of those sold in the United States. Therefore, there is nothing in place to confirm a substance ordered on-line is really hCG.

DIET AT DERMA HEALTH INSTITUTEUltimate Fat Burning Diet was on FOX 10 last night. My client Derma Health Institute has had a lot of client successes with the Diet. Even the owner and some staff are on it too and loving the results. Some have hunger issues, others don’t. Another cool thing that Derma Health Institute is doing to help people follow the diet process is getting involved in social media by Twittering and online journals and posting info on their Facebook page.
