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 may develop persistent health issues.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, ranging from the regulation of our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most often 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 go through a form 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 can cause sexual dysfunction, muscle weakness, depression, and bone loss.
What are natural hormones?
At Masri Sports Medicine & Wellness, Dr. Sammy Masri is highly skilled in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are made by using 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 exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact 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, allowing you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, 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 personalized treatment plan tailored to your body’s unique needs. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
