Hormone balance for men and women is essential for good health and viability. Dr. Stengler is in demand for his expertise in balancing women’s 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 is present.

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 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 identified differently by our cell receptors and might trigger 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 used in the body. As we age, our bodies slow down the production of naturally occurring hormones. This happens both because of natural aging and environmental factors. Things like stress levels, medications (especially birth control), and various other social aspects can affect our body’s ability to maintain homeostasis.

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

The side effects of hormone deficiency can affect a lot of parts of your life, especially in women. For women, an imbalance of estrogen hormones can result in hot flashes, night sweats, premature aging, and bad memory. Low progesterone can also cause similar symptoms and anxiety. Changes in hormone balance can affect your mood, sexual desire, and fertility.

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

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 benefit of prescriptions using compounding pharmacies is numerous. The hormones are tailor-made to the patient. For instance, 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 individual 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.
