Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can experience hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you might develop chronic health concerns.
Hormones play many different roles within our bodies, from the regulation of our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances tend to be most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain among others.
Men also can 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 educated in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are produced by making use of custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, rather than 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 instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function the same as synthetic ones, but they may have 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, 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 won’t be able to respond optimally 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 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.
