Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are out of balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop persistent health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from regulating our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most commonly 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 and more.
Men also can undergo a type of “male menopause” also 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 made by making use of custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones include 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 in fact have fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones 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 optimally 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 increase your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel young and healthy again.Ultimately, 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 customized 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.
