Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are out of balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you could develop chronic health issues.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, ranging from the regulation of our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most commonly associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms may include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain and more.
Men can sometimes experience a form of “male menopause” commonly called andropause, which is when there is 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 trained in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are created by making use of custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why should you use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function the same as synthetic ones, but they may have fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones may actually increase your risk of breast cancer, heart disease, blood clots, or stroke, particularly 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 optimally 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 enhance your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel healthy and young again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
Are you experiencing symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your needs and create a customized treatment plan tailored to 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.
