Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can experience hormone imbalances. When your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop persistent health concerns.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from regulating our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men also can go through a kind of “male menopause” known as andropause, which is when there is a decrease 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 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 use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may have 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 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, and allow 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 specific situation 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.
