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.

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.
Why Bio Identical Hormone Replacement ?
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.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As we age our hormones decline, our hormone levels play a circuital role in how we feel daily as well as overall health. A good candidate may have low energy, depressive mood, weight gain, fatigue, and imbalance in their sleep patterns. The first step is a hormone blood panel to see where your personal hormone levels are through extensive bloodwork testing.
