Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can suffer from hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you might develop persistent health issues.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from the regulation of our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, 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 may include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men also can undergo a form of “male menopause” also known as andropause, a condition that occurs with 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 created using custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may result in 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?
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 the proper hormonal balancein your body and put an end to the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will enhance 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 personalized treatment plan to match your body’s unique needs. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
