Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men and Women in San Diego, CA

Achieving optimal hormone balance is crucial for maintaining good health and vitality in both men and women. Dr. Stengler is renowned for his expertise in addressing hormone imbalances using a comprehensive approach that includes dietary adjustments, supplementation, homeopathy, herbal medicine, and bioidentical hormone therapy at his practices in San Diego and Encinitas. Through years of experience, Dr. Stengler and his team have observed that achieving optimal health and vitality is often unattainable in the presence of hormone imbalances.

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Safe?

There may be concerns regarding the safety of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), particularly when synthetic hormones are used. Synthetic hormones, which do not exactly match those naturally occurring in the body, may interact differently with our cell receptors and potentially trigger adverse reactions. Bioidentical hormones, on the other hand, closely resemble the hormones produced by the body, reducing the risk of adverse effects. As we age, our bodies naturally produce fewer hormones due to factors such as aging and environmental stressors, leading to hormone deficiencies and associated symptoms.

The consequences of hormone deficiency can significantly impact various aspects of life, particularly for women. Imbalances in estrogen hormones can manifest as hot flashes, night sweats, premature aging, and cognitive issues, while low progesterone levels can contribute to anxiety and similar symptoms. Mood swings, decreased libido, and fertility issues may also result from hormonal imbalances.

Common hormone imbalance conditions:

For Women:

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

For Men:

  • Andropause (male menopause)
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of libido
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle loss
  • Mood swings
  • Other common problems

Through the integration of homeopathy, natural supplements, herbal medicine, dietary modifications, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Stengler has the ability to effectively address a variety of health issues. For women, symptoms alleviated through treatment may include fatigue, hot flashes, weight gain, and menopausal symptoms. Each treatment program is tailored to the individual, considering specific symptoms and lab testing to provide personalized care aimed at restoring optimal health and vitality in San Diego and Encinitas.

Conventional medicine often offers limited options for diagnosing and treating hormone imbalances, particularly in conditions such as premenstrual syndrome, menopause, uterine fibroids, infertility, depression, and weight gain. Bio-identical forms of hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and thyroid hormones, are available by prescription from Dr. Stengler through compounding pharmacies. These prescriptions are customized to the patient, allowing for specific dosages and administration methods tailored to individual needs.

Dr. Stengler has successfully treated thousands of women with bio-identical hormones safely and naturally in his office, serving both San Diego and Encinitas. Patients from across the country seek Dr. Stengler's expertise for hormone-related issues, and an in-office visit is required to initiate bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
