Hormone Counseling in Monterey

If you are feeling tired, having difficulty sleeping or are just not feeling completely yourself, then you may be able to work with Terry L. Franklin, M.D. to help determine whether you are eligible for bioidentical hormone therapy. There are numerous age-related conditions that are directly related to a fluctuation in naturally occurring hormones; however, accepting the aging process does not always have to be a fact of life.

When you work with Terry L. Franklin, M.D., we can help you understand more about bioidentical hormone replacement therapies for men and women and assist you in restoring your full wellness. We encourage you to take control and contact a Monterey holistic medicine practitioner from our office as soon as possible.

Hormone Therapy for Women

While menopause is a natural part of a woman's life, you can potentially improve the quality of your life by working with Terry L. Franklin, M.D. and undergoing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. For many women, an imbalance in hormones can cause numerous complications, including anxiety, sleeping problems, mood swings, and lack of sexual drive. When you choose to work with Terry L. Franklin, M.D., we will fully evaluate your situation and determine if a thyroid condition or progesterone or estrogen imbalance could be causing your symptoms. We can evaluate your eligibility to undergo bioidentical hormone treatments to give you back the life that you deserve.

Hormone Treatment for Men

Many men lose a good portion of energy, stamina, and drive in a short amount of time, and while this is not uncommon, it is not a condition that you have to accept. At Terry L. Franklin, M.D., we can help determine if andropause, or male hormone deficiency, is causing you to experience these conditions. When you work with our team, we will check your testosterone, DEHA, and HGH levels, as well as your thyroid, to help determine whether bioidentical hormone therapy may be right for you. Bioidentical hormone therapy can help control various conditions in men, including:

  • High blood sugar
  • Poor memory
  • Mood swings
  • High cholesterol
  • Energy loss
  • Joint pain

What is bioidentical hormone replacement?

Most hormone therapies are composed of mainly synthetic hormones or equine hormone medications, such as Premarin and Cenestin, which can cause various side effects that are not conducive to the hormone therapy. Unlike these synthetic, pharmaceutical hormones, bioidentical hormone therapy uses the same hormones that the human body naturally creates to rebalance the body's hormones. Bioidentical hormones are extracted from natural sources, such as soy and yams, and are chemically changed into identical human hormones. When these hormones enter the body, there is less of a chance that they will be rejected, as the body will see them as identical to natural hormones.
