Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you may develop chronic health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, including regulating our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain and more.
Men can go through a kind of “male menopause” commonly called 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 by making use of custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, rather than 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 the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact 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, 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 respond at its best to nutrition and exercise.

Bio-identical hormones will enhance your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel young and healthy again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
