Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men and Women

Hormone balance for men and women is essential for good health and viability. Dr. Stengler is in demand for his proficiency in balancing women and men's hormones using diet, supplements, homeopathy, herbal medicine and bio-identical hormones. It has been their experience that good health and vitality are not possible when hormone imbalance occurs.

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Dangerous?

Now you might have heard that hormone replacement therapy can be unsafe. It's true when you're dealing with synthetic hormones (hormones not having the identical structure to the ones located in the human body). The cells in our bodies were made to be compatible with the hormones we naturally produce, so synthetic hormones are recognized differently by our cell receptors and may trigger a different response. Sometimes, our bodies see them as intruders and go into attack mode, creating much bigger problems.

We define them as bioidentical hormones or hormones that are identical to what is produced and utilized in the body. As we age, our bodies slow the production of naturally occurring hormones. This occurs both because of natural aging and environmental factors. Things like stress levels, medications (particularly birth control), and other social factors can affect our body's ability to maintain homeostasis.

So what happens when you have low levels of natural hormones?

The side effects of hormone deficiency can affect a lot of areas of your life, particularly in women. For women, an imbalance of estrogen hormones can result in hot flashes, night sweats, premature aging, and poor memory. Low progesterone can also result in similar symptoms and anxiety. Fluctuations in hormone balance can affect your mood, libido, and fertility.

Using homeopathy, natural supplements, herbal medicine, diet and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, we have the ability to treat a variety of health issues. In women, symptoms we help alleviate consist of:

  • Fatigue
  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Menopausal symptoms

Each program is individualized because each individual is unique. We can create your treatment based on specific symptoms and lab testing, and provide the best possible care to get you back on your way to good health and better vitality.

Conventional medicine provides little flexibility in the diagnosis and treatment of hormone imbalance conditions. This is commonly the case with women experiencing:

  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Menopause
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Infertility
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Other common problems

Bio-identical forms of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid, and most other prescription hormones are available by prescription from Dr. Stengler through compounding pharmacies. The advantage of prescriptions using compounding pharmacies is numerous. The hormones are tailor-made to the individual. For example, more specific dosages can be used. A variety of different forms are available including topical (transdermal), capsule, suppository, sublingual, and others to best meet the specific needs of the patient. Dr. Stengler has treated thousands of women with bio-identical hormones safely and naturally in his office.
