Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can suffer from hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop persistent health problems.
Hormones play many different roles within our bodies, including the regulation of our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances tend to be most commonly 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 among others.
Men may go through a type of “male menopause” commonly called 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 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.
Why use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact have fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones 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?
When your hormones are out of balance, your body will not respond optimally 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. In the long-term, 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 needs and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to 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.
