Hormone Therapy Clinic

Hormone balance for women and men is critical for good health and viability. Dr. Stengler is sought after 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 may have heard that hormone replacement therapy can be harmful. It's true when you're dealing with synthetic hormones (hormones not having the identical structure to the ones found 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 initiate a different response. In some cases, 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 various 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 impact a lot of areas of your life, particularly in women. For women, an imbalance of estrogen hormones can result in hot flashes, night sweats, early aging, and bad memory. Low progesterone can also cause 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 range of health problems. In women, symptoms we help alleviate include:

  • Fatigue
  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Menopausal symptoms

Each program is individualized because each person 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 greater vitality!

Traditional medicine provides 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 with compounding pharmacies. The advantage of prescriptions through compounding pharmacies is numerous. The hormones are tailor-made to the individual. 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 specific needs of the patient. Dr. Stengler has treated thousands of women with bio-identical hormones safely and naturally in his office.

Many individuals from around the country seek Dr. Stengler's guidance for hormone-related issues. For those patients requiring bio-identical (natural) hormone replacement an in-office visit is required to start therapy.
