Dr. Moss has been using bioidentical hormone therapy since the 1980’s and integrates alternative medicine with (BHRT) Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to help the symptoms and complications of many various 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 there is a hormonal imbalance 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.
Some of the health issues that can be treated are:
Chronic Fatigue, this 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.
Hypothyroid 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 can include hot flashes, insomnia, weight gain, and mood swings.
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, Dr. Moss can greatly improve existing conditions. In Dr. Moss’s experience, when bioidentical hormones are effectively prescribed, they can protect against high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol, and osteoporosis. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy greatly enhances levels of health and wellness.
