Meet Our Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner
Dedicated to Women’s Health
From the very beginning of Debra Hampton’s career, she has been passionate about providing the best care to women in all stages of their life.
As a board-certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner with the National Certification Corporation, Debra began her education with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Eastern University and a Master’s Degree from Drexel University. Over her 27 year career, she has worked as a Labor and Delivery Nurse, received BioIdentical Hormone Replacement training under Rebecca McClure CRNP, and now focuses on preventative medicine and maintaining wellness for her patients at Renewed Vitality.
“My favorite thing about working at Renewed Vitality is our wonderful patients and staff. Renewed Vitality is a family atmosphere not just with the staff but also with each and every person who comes to the office. Working at Renewed Vitality has made it possible to build meaningful relationships with our patients and share in the excitement of their lives.”
“I’ve been working in women’s health since I was 23-years-old. I’ve always loved taking care of women, but this passion was bolstered when I had a hysterectomy at the age of 35. I was left with only a small portion of one ovary. This made me truly value the female body, and I wanted to do whatever I could to help every woman protect her body.
I’ve always been an advocate for hormone replacement therapy, and I knew that when it was necessary I would certainly become a patient. At 42 I started having hot flashes and night sweats: I mean 20-a-day take off my clothes hot flashes. I started taking traditional HRT immediately, but I didn’t see the results I expected. I was still tormented with hot flashes, night sweats, decreased energy, insomnia and low motivation. To top it all off, I became extremely anxious — and I’m a naturally calm person. I used traditional pills, patches and creams for 2 years with minimal to no relief.
I needed to try something new; I didn’t even know who I was anymore and neither did my family.
It was around this time that Dr. William West started using a bioidentical hormone therapy called “the pellets.” It was widely used across the mid and west coast, but no one on the east coast was providing the service. I made the trip to visit Dr. West. to try the pellets. He assured me that I would start to see relief, start to see myself in the mirror again. He was right!
In only eight days, my symptoms started to vanish. My hot flashes diminished. I slept through the night and woke feeling ready to start my day. That anxiety, which was never me, completely went away.
With a regained sense of energy and motivation, I took on weight loss (something that I was always very uncomfortable with). With hard work, positive diet changes, exercise, and pellets, I lost 50 pounds over only a year and a half. I don’t think any of it would have been possible without HRT.
I got my life back!
The major changes to my lifestyle inspired me to make a major change to my career. I wanted to focus on perimenopausal and menopausal females. I didn’t want a single woman to suffer the way I did. I gave up OB with a heavy heart, but believed that my new journey was where I was meant to be. I studied with Dr. Gino Tutero, the physician that brought pellets to the forefront for women, and became certified in menopausal therapies and pellet therapy. After that, I studied with Dr. West the man who changed my life in hopes that one day I could change the lives of others.
I am proud and happy to now be a part of Renewed Vitality. I can now not only treat hormonal imbalance but also care for all issues that can be associated with aging. I look forward to continuing my education in an effort to grow my practice for the better of all females struggling.
I still continue my pellet therapy today, 12 years later, and the positive effects never went away.”
