Conditions Treated with Bioidentical Hormones

Marsha Nunley, M.D. is a Bioidentical Hormones specialist in San Francisco, works with patients who are experiencing decreased satisfaction in life because of problems caused by an imbalance in their hormones. The normal process of aging is the most typical cause of this, but there are also several other reasons your hormones could be out of balance.

Some of the conditions treated with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy include:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

This includes analyses and tailoring a treatment to suit individual needs. The therapy may be applied orally, topically, or by injection.

Cardiovascular Disease

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S., and is due to the increase of diets high in fat, sugar, and processed foods. If caught early, lifestyle choices can be made and disease may be prevented.

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue can be a result of too much stress, a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, and imbalanced hormones. The syndrome is characterized by chronic joint pain, unrefreshing sleep, headache, sore throat, impaired memory and concentration, and illness after exertion.

Depression

This can be a result of imbalanced hormones or fatigue. It can also result from lack of exercise and a healthy diet.

Detoxification and Heavy Metal Testing

Exposure to heavy metals can create toxins in the body and build up in the system. Upon detoxification, many health concerns can be alleviated.

Healthy Aging and Age Management

Bioidentical hormone therapy can be used to treat associated symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and andropause.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The gut makes up over 70% of the immune system. When toxins build up in the intestines, immune function is lowered, and the intestinal tract can no longer absorb nutrients the way that it should. Dietary changes can improve bowel issues and alleviate aggravation.

Thyroid Problems

Thyroid function is important for metabolism, and thyroid hormone can decrease due to toxins and aging. Bio-identical hormone supplementation can help symptoms of hypothyroid.

Weight Loss Programs

Maintaining a healthy weight and getting proper nutrition is necessary for maintaining optimal health. Weight increases can be due to a number of factors, such as an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, or hormone imbalance.
