Charles Moss, M.D. has been prescribing Bioidentical Hormones since the 1980’s, and integrates alternative medicine to help treat the symptoms and complications of many health issues. Hormones affect several functions of the body, such as maintaining healthy weight, youthful skin, sexual function, and a healthy heart.
Levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and thyroid hormones decrease as the body ages. When a hormonal imbalance is present in the body, symptoms may manifest. However, the imbalances can be greatly improved with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are unique because they replicate the exact structure of the hormones the human body produces. Because of this, the body does not see the hormones as being foreign, and the possible side effects are greatly reduced or completely eliminated.
Health issues treated by La Jolla Bioidentical Doctor, Charles Moss M.D. include:
- Chronic Fatigue
Chronic Fatigue syndrome can be caused by a hormonal imbalance interfering with the function of the adrenal glands and may cause chronic exhaust, sore throat, low grade fever, and malaise after exertion.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid does not produce the correct amount of hormones, and this can lead to heart disease, joint pain, infertility, and obesity.
- Menopause and Perimenopause Symptoms
Symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause can include hot flashes, insomnia, weight gain, and mood swings.
- Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal Fatigue can happen when a person is overstressed and the adrenal glands secrete cortisol. This constant secretion over taxes the adrenals, and can cause a person to feel run down, overstressed, and constantly tired.
By individualizing treatment plans, Charles Moss, M.D. can greatly improve existing conditions.
