Women's Health Care Reno, Nevada
You've heard the words- mammogram, osteoporosis, breast cancer- but you've always been healthy. However, the effects of breast cancer and bone loss are potentially devastating and preventative healthcare has become more effective than ever. The Nevada Center of Alternative and Anti-Aging Medicine in the Reno, Nevada area, offers a comprehensive approach to women's health care. Click here to learn how the Nevada Center uses natural care to help patients live better lives.
As women age, they are at increased risk of medical conditions including breast cancer and osteoporosis. According to current recommendations, women over 40 should have mammograms every one to two years, and women over 50 should have yearly mammograms. This screening test is extremely effective at catching cancer before it has spread, allowing early intervention and better prognoses. Additionally, older women start to lose bone mass in a condition called osteoporosis. As the bone mass disappears, the bones become more fragile with a higher risk of breaking. A bone density scan can detect bone loss before osteoporosis has occurred and it can be used to determine the extent of osteoporosis.
Carol Mallory, RN, MSN, APN, an experienced practitioner devoted to the health care needs of women, has a comprehensive, holistic approach to the patient. In addition to state of the art screening tests, she offers natural solutions and treatments to many of the unique health needs of women.
Programs found in the Nevada Center's Woman to Woman Natural Health Care department include:
- Annual examinations and routine care
- Breast cancer prevention
- Osteoporosis prevention
- Bio identical hormone replacement
