Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can experience hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of 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 the regulation of 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 could include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men may undergo a kind of “male menopause” known as andropause, a condition that occurs with 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 highly skilled 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, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
What’s the advantage of using bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function 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, 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 won’t 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, allowing you to feel young and healthy again. In the long-term, 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.
