About Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy is the method of replacing (not substituting) hormones in the body to bring the levels back to what they were when they were younger. The goal is to bring the patient's hormones back into balance. This balancing process is done by replacing the missing hormone with an exact duplicate (bio-identical duplicate, or native, or iso-molecular) to receive all of the benefits of hormonal balance without the unnecessary risks of synthetic replacement.
Wellness Diagnostic & Medispa is proud to offer Pro-Pell bio-identical hormone pellet therapy for both men and women in Temecula, CA.
"I went in for a consult and was sold on laser hair removal for my underarms. Dr. Tumbaga and her team are amazing. They made me feel right at home and at ease with all of the info."- M.G. / Yelp / Feb 22, 2022
"I am so happy tonight! I have been lethargic & basically, felt cruddy since Christmas. I tried to get into 2 of my doctor’s offices & couldn’t. A friend told me about IV treatments, so I started doing some research. This office is amazing! I came in weak & tired. I was met with a PA who sat with me as I did my paper work!! After an IV treatment & B12 shot, I feel like a new woman. The doctor actually came in & talked to me about my issues - and, she was the one who took my IV out & gave me advice! WOW! I’ve had 4 children & a doctor has never took my IV out! I felt so taken care of. I highly recommend this office!"- L.T. / Yelp / Feb 02, 2022
"Dr. Tumbaga was amazing as were all the assistants. They made the experience extremely comfortable. Dr. Tumbaga would stop at points to check in with me so I could see how things were going and confirm it was what I was looking for. Lip fillers came out exactly how I wanted. I will definitely be back."- J.G. / Google / Jan 25, 2022
"Dr Tumbaga is amazing. She corrected some fillers that another office had done. She made my lips look even. I appreciate the time and attention she gave me as a new patient. She has a great eye for symmetry. I’m going back for lasers next."- M.A. / Yelp / Dec 23, 2021
"I was desperate when I got here. Due to complications of medical botox for migraine, I had severe ptosis. One eye looked like I was terrified and the other looked like I was sleeping. I had visual impairment and the last thing I wanted to do was botox. From the first phone call, to intake to meeting Dr. Timbaland, I was amazed. The anxiety I was experiencing dropped several notices and within days, I feel human. Every single staff person I met there has been extraordinary. I love this olace!"- G.G. / Google / Nov 28, 2021
Hormone Therapy For Women
Women can balance their hormones to help improve hormonal deficiency. Here are the conditions that can be treated:
- Vasomotor symptoms
- Vaginal dryness
- Brain fog
- Weight gain (mid-section)
- Loss of libido
- Thin and dry skin, brittle nails, dry eyes
- Droopy eyelids, thin cheeks, thin lips
- Mood changes, anxiety, depression
**Not all problems are hormones related, but hormones play such a pivotal role in sense of well-being.
Hormone replacement therapy can help balance Estrogen. Estrogen has over 400 functions in the body and is commonly used to treat vasomotor symptoms of menopause (hot flashes, night sweats). Balancing estrogen also helps reduce bone loss and can potentially decrease fractures as women age. Having a proper balance of estrogen can help increase the metabolism and decrease blood pressure and plaque formation on the arteries.
Hormone Therapy For Men
Men will natrually lose testosterone as they get older. On average, men lose 1% of testosterone each year after they turns 30 years old and about 40% of men 45 and older have testosterone levels of less than 300.
Here are the causes of Low T:
- Natural drop in production
- Average man loses 1% of testosterone each year after he turns 30 y.o.
- On average 40% of men 45+ have T levels of <300
- Increased estrogen production (aromatase in fat cells)
- Heart (statin drugs, beta blockers)
- Pain medications (Opiates)
You may have Low T and could be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy. Here are the signs of Low T:
- Increased body fat (mid-section)
- Reduced muscle mass, strength and endurance
- Difficulty concentrating
- Loss of memory
- Sleep difficulties/fatigue
- Erectile Dysfunction/ low libido
- Lack of competitiveness
- Loss of motivation
- Mood disturbances/grouchy (“Irritable Male Syndrome” – withdrawal, sadness anxiety, frustration, lack of interest)
Testosterone therapy can help with protein synthesis and muscle growth in strength and size. Men also experience increased libido, stronger erections, better mood, and improved skin tone.

Who should not use HRT?
Hormone replacement therapy should not be used by women who are pregnant, prone to vaginal bleeding, or have a history of certain cancers, including breast, ovarian, or womb cancers. A history of blood clots, stroke, or deep vein thrombosis are also risks that preclude taking HRT.
