Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men and Women

Hormone balance for men and women is critical 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 in San Diego and Encinitas. It has been their experience that good health and vitality are not possible when hormone imbalance occurs.

Is hormone replacement therapy dangerous?

Now you may have heard that hormone replacement therapy can be unsafe. It's true when you're dealing with synthetic hormones (hormones not having the exact same structure to the ones found in the body). The cells in our bodies were designed to be compatible with the hormones we naturally produce, so synthetic hormones are recognized differently by our cell receptors and may initiate a different action. Sometimes, our bodies see them as intruders and go into attack mode, creating much larger 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 down the production of naturally occurring hormones. This occurs both because of natural aging and environmental factors. Things like stress levels, medications (especially birth control), and other social aspects 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, especially in women. For women, an imbalance of estrogen hormones can cause hot flashes, night sweats, premature aging, and poor memory. Low progesterone can also result in similar symptoms and anxiety. Changes in hormone balance can impact your mood, sexual desire, and fertility.

Using homeopathy, natural supplements, herbal medicine, diet and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, we are able to treat a range of health problems. In women, symptoms we help alleviate consist of:

  • Fatigue
  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Menopausal symptoms

Each program is individualized because each patient is unique. We can develop your treatment based on specific symptoms and lab testing, and administer the best possible care to get you back on your way to good health and better vitality in San Diego and Encinitas!

Conventional medicine offers little flexibility in the diagnosis and treatment of hormone imbalance problems. This is often the case with women suffering from:

  • 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 via compounding pharmacies. The benefit 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 which serves both San Diego and Encinitas.

Many individuals from around the country seek out Dr. Stengler's guidance for hormone-related problems. For those patients requiring bio-identical (natural) hormone replacement, an in-office visit is required to initiate therapy. He treats individuals based on both their symptoms and lab testing throughout San Diego and Encinitas.
