Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you could develop chronic health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, including the regulation of our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances are most frequently 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 among others.
Men can experience a type of “male menopause” also known as andropause, a condition which involves 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 highly skilled 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 include molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why should you use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function 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 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 will not respond at its best to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore your body’s chemistry and help to eliminate the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel healthy and young again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
