An important aspect of health and wellness is hormonal balance. With age, men and women experience changes to physical and psychological health as various sex hormones decline. Sometimes these changes are subtle, such as a drop in energy levels. Sometimes, they are dramatic, causing upheaval in every aspect of life. Whether you are in the midst of menopause or andropause, or you have just begun your journey, a simple blood test can alert you to hormonal imbalance at the root of unpleasant symptoms.
We understand that you have choices in how you manage your aging process. When you schedule a consultation for bio-identical hormone therapy in our La Mesa and Temecula office, Dr. Emery will answer all of your questions and help you identify ways that pellet therapy can meet your needs for optimizing hormones like testosterone or estrogen.
While each of us traverses aging in our own unique way, many men and women suffer the effects of fluctuating sex hormones for far longer than they should. Sufficient levels of sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are necessary to sustain the physiologic processes that keep us feeling vital and "alive." When hormones are depleted, as occurs with age, a number of unpleasant and even concerning symptoms may develop. These include:
- Weight gain
- Adrenal fatigue
- Mood swings
- Poor memory
- Thyroid disease
- Difficulty sleeping
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Chronic fatigue
- Sexual Dysfunction
- Poor concentration
- Low sex drive
- Hair loss
- Low energy
The health concerns that develop during perimenopause, menopause, or andropause for men can have adverse effects that last a lifetime. There is hope, however, in the appropriate hormone replacement program.
Dr. Jerrel Emery is a highly qualified, board-certified physician trained to evaluate your individualistic symptoms. Paired with comprehensive lab testing and a closely followed program, he can assist you in your quest to regain your vitality, your energy, your sex drive, and more. It’s time to create a personalized treatment plan that tailored to your unique needs!
We provide personalized care with bio-identical hormone therapy to men and women from all over San Diego.
Hormone Balancing Customized to your Needs
In recent years, the issue of hormone replacement therapy has become somewhat complex. Certain research studies have demonstrated potentially ill-effects stemming from the use of synthetic hormones. In his career as an OBGYN, Dr. Emery witnessed how these early methods fell short of the intended goal.
With the development of bio-identical hormone therapy, we have seen a renewed interest in integrative care using natural ingredients. The benefit of bioidentical hormones, as opposed to synthetic creams and drugs, is that the chemical structure of individual ingredients works in con cert with the body. Because bio-identical hormones are essentially a replica of your own, you gain the ability to regain a better quality of life without the inherent risks associated with previous forms of treatment.
What are Bio-identical Hormones?
Different than synthetic hormones used for decades in standard hormone replacement therapy, bio-identical hormones are those that replicate the molecular structure of hormones naturally produced by the body. Due to the precision of this resemblance, the body does not differentiate supplemented bio-identical hormones from those it produces on its own. The result is the proper distribution, utilization, and excretion of necessary hormones.
Benefits of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Ingredients are only one aspect of successful results from bioidentical hormone replacement. The Bio Identical Hormone Replacement method, in which Dr. Emery has been thorough trained, involves precise testing that allows us to customize your treatment to your unique needs. Assessing specific lab work, we can identify exactly which hormones you need and how much.
An additional advantage to Bio Identical Hormone Replacement therapy is the delivery method. Rather than relying on the absorption of creams or metabolism of oral medication, Bio Identical Hormone Replacement promotes hormone balance through pellets. In a simple, comfortable procedure, the appropriate number of pellets are inserted beneath the skin. Here, they are readily available to use as the body needs. Other benefits include:
