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 may develop chronic health issues.
Hormones play many different roles within our bodies, ranging from regulating our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men can sometimes experience a type of “male menopause” often referred to as andropause, which is when there is 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 created by making use of custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones include 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 perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact have fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy 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 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 enhance your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
