Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you may develop chronic health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from regulating our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most commonly associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain and more.
Men may undergo a kind of “male menopause” called andropause, a condition that occurs with a decrease in levels of DHEA and testosterone, two male hormones. This hormonal imbalance can cause 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 created by making use of custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact 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, 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 won’t be able to respond optimally to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore the proper hormonal balancein your body and help to eliminate the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel young and healthy 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 personalized 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.
