Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can experience 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 problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, including the regulation of our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men can experience a form of “male menopause” 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 using custom-compounded hormones 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.
Why use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may have fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones has been associated with an increased 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 respond at its best 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 enhance your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, 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 needs 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.
