Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop persistent health problems.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, including the regulation of our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances tend to be most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms may include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain and more.
Men can sometimes undergo a type of “male menopause” known as andropause, a condition that occurs with a reduction in levels of DHEA and testosterone, two male hormones. This hormonal imbalance may result in sexual dysfunction, muscle weakness, depression, and bone loss.
What are natural hormones?
At Masri Sports Medicine & Wellness, Dr. Sammy Masri is educated in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are produced by making use of custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
What’s the advantage of using bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function the same as synthetic ones, but they may have fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy may increase your risk of breast cancer, heart disease, blood clots, or stroke, especially if these conditions run in your family.
What can bio-identical hormones do for me?
When your hormones are out of balance, your body will not be able to respond at its best to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore the proper hormonal balancein your body and put an end to the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel healthy and young again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
Are you affected by symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your specific situation and create a customized treatment plan to match your body’s unique requirements. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
