Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men 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 issues.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from regulating our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men can sometimes undergo a kind of “male menopause” also known as andropause, which is when there is a decrease 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 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.
What’s the advantage of using bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may 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, particularly 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 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 enhance 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.
Are you experiencing symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your needs 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.
