Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop chronic health concerns.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, including regulating our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances tend to be most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain among others.
Men may go through a kind of “male menopause” known as andropause, a condition which involves 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 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 use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may 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, 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 be able to respond optimally to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore your body’s chemistry and put an end to the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase 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 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.
