Women's Health & Bioidentical Hormones
Dr. Moore and Dr. Panda both received extensive training throughout medical school and through advanced medical conferences on how to diagnose and treat a variety of female health conditions, including but not not limited to infertility, menopause, PMS, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, ovarian cysts, irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding, as well as other hormone imbalances. We utilize blood tests to measure hormones. Our treatments of these conditions could consist of herbal therapies, bioidentical hormones, nutritional therapies, or even homeopathic medicine. We are licensed in the state of California to prescribe anything that is a hormone, whether it be bioidentical hormones such as natural estrogen, natural progesterone or even thyroid hormone.
What about saliva testing?
We have found that saliva testing has not been nearly as reliable or accurate as blood testing. For this reason we utilize blood tests when specifically testing levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and thyroid hormones. We do however still utilize salivary cortisol testing, as we have found this to be a reliable means of testing cortisol levels.
