Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you may develop persistent health concerns.
Hormones play many different roles within our bodies, including regulating our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms may include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men can undergo a kind of “male menopause” often referred to as andropause, which is when there is a reduction 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 using custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why should you use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform 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 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 at its best 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.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
Are you affected by symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your specific situation 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.
