Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. When your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you may develop chronic health concerns.
Hormones play many different roles within our bodies, ranging from the regulation of our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men can go through a kind of “male menopause” commonly called andropause, which is when there is 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 made using custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are 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 result in fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy has been associated with an increased 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 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, and allow you to feel healthy and young again.In fact, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
Are you affected by symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your specific situation and create a personalized 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.
