Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you might develop chronic health concerns.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, including regulating our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men can sometimes go through a type of “male menopause” known as 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 educated 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, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of 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 exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may result in fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy may 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?
If 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 enhance your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, 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 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.
