Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop chronic health problems.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, from regulating our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among 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, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men may go through a kind of “male menopause” called andropause, a condition which involves 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 highly skilled in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are made by making use of custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones include 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 perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may have fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy may actually increase your 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 will not respond optimally to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore the proper hormonal balancein your body and put an end to the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel young and healthy again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
Are you experiencing symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your needs 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.
